Great Treasure

Meghan Hock

“I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.” Psalm 119:162

There is nothing that compares to God’s Word. No other words can set you free. Nothing else can bring you peace or security. There isn’t a comfort, amenity, person or thing that has the power to tell you who you are, Whose you are and set the course of success for your life and eternity–like God’s Word can and does.

The Bible, God’s Word, is the primary way God speaks to us. God took great concern in penning His story of love and redemption over some 1500 years, so that we could have access to His truth, His love and His heart for humanity. If someone took such great concern to put everything that was in their will for your life into a book, don’t you think there’s probably treasure in it that is meant to impact your life?

Psalm 119:162 says, “I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.” Just like the thrill of reading a great story, you can have that experience and more when you read the Bible. Perhaps your Bible reading time has been less than thrilling, but your heart desires that to change! Here are a couple of things to encourage you to find the treasure that is in God’s Word!

1. Speak Faith About God’s Word
Renew your mind by reading and declaring scriptures that speak directly about God’s Word. Doing this will bring faith and confidence to your heart about the power of His Word. Take time to write these out and speak them out. There are scriptures all throughout the Bible that speak directly about the power of God’s Word. For example, Psalm 119 alone has over 10 individual verses just on His Word. Here’s a sampling:

  • Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11
  • Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:87
  • Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
  • You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. Psalm 119:114
  • The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130
  • The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. Psalm 119:160
  • But my heart stands in awe of Your word. Psalm 119:161
  • I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure. Psalm 119:162

2. Start Your Bible Reading In Faith
Whenever you open your Bible, say a prayer like this, “Heavenly Father, I thank You that as I open the Bible and read it today, Your Holy Spirit will bring understanding to the things I read. Even if it’s just one scripture that comes alive to me today, I thank You that I will get something out of my reading that helps me in my relationship with You and with others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” Starting your Bible reading in faith raises your expectation level, and puts you in “treasure hunt” mode where you are looking and ready for God to bring understanding to His Words to you. He will always respond when we come in faith!

3. Pre-decide God’s Word is the ultimate authority in your life.
There are so many things vying for your attention and trust in this world. One of the devil’s earliest tactics was to get humanity to question the validity of God’s Word and the authority of it in their life. Genesis 3 tells us the story of the devil tempting Eve. In verse 1, it says, “And he (the devil) said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” His first words to Eve questioned the authority of God’s Word to Adam in the garden, “Has God indeed said…?” If the devil can get you to question the authority of God’s Word, then he can lure you into a life of death and destruction which ultimately separates you from God. So, don’t fall for it! Make a decisive decision that God’s Word is the ultimate authority, the absolute truth, for your life. And as you do that, ask God for discernment so you can really come to understand the truth He has laid out in His Word. And more than understand it, obey it!

I believe as you put these simple tips into practice, God’s Word will come alive to you and change the course of your everyday life.

Say It: “Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving us the Bible. As I take time to read Your Word I will come in faith, fully confident that your Word is the ultimate authority in my life, believing Your Word is like great treasure to me! Help me to connect with you in a real and authentic way as You speak to me through the Bible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!”
