Without the word there is nothing we can do. The word of God carries power and authority.
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
The life of a Christian is likened to an athlete who is running on a track. When he sins, he goes off the track but the moment he decides to look into the word of God, with faith, he is corrected and brought back onto the track.
Faith in the word of God is the key to all life’s problems: just believe and follow what it says.
