There was a time when Jesus was not physically on the earth. Until Mary got pregnant and gave birth to baby Jesus, Jesus was just a promise and His reality was in the heavens.
Daniel 3:25 says, “… I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
King Nebuchadnezzar saw Him when they put three people in the furnace of fire. He saw four people and said the picture of the fourth person looked like the Son of God. Nobody could put Jesus into real tangible form until He showed up in the flesh and that is the reality of the Word of God. Every promise from God is convertible and must be converted to be enjoyed.
The Word of God is not given to you as poetry to play around with but to be converted into reality in your life. Consider this example: if somebody gave you $100, you can’t compare it to N100. Just like $100 is superior to N100, the promises of God are vastly superior to any offer of man. Many people know the worth of $100 but many Christians don’t know the worth of the Scripture they have.
Psalm 119:162 says, “I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.”
David treasured God’s Word. He understood the value and the convertible nature of the Word of God. Great spoil is a treasure bigger than money, gold, or silver, but it is stashed somewhere for you to find it. Nobody owns it but whosoever finds it becomes the owner. Imagine a treasure hunt of $15 million and whoever finds it first is the owner! If you are the first to find it, how will you rejoice?
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to encounter and recognise Your word as finding great spoils in Jesus’ name. Amen!
