Derek Prince – Bible Teacher

In the previous session, I spoke about various different effects that the Word of God is designed to produce in us who believe it. I want to return briefly to two, because they’re related, and I want to use them to illustrate one another.

I spoke, first of all, that faith comes by the hearing of God’s Word. That’s a wonderful truth. We can never overemphasize it. If you don’t have faith, you don’t need to stay without faith, because faith comes. It comes by the hearing of the Word of God.


And then at the end of the previous session, I explained how God’s Word is intended to provide health, or medicine for all our physical body. And I illustrated it briefly from my own experience, but only very briefly.

The passage that we looked at in Proverbs chapter four, I like to return there for a moment, because it’s a perfect illustration of what hearing is, so that if you’re wondering what it means to hear God’s Word, I can illustrate it for you and base it on my personal experience from Proverbs chapter four.

While I was there in the hospital, and I discovered these verses, and I saw that they offered me health or medicine, I said to myself, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m grateful for what the doctors have done, but they have not been able to provide healing. So I’m going to take God’s Word as my medicine.

Now, when I said that, I had the impression that God spoke to me inaudibly but very clearly, and He said, ‘When the doctor gives a person medicine, the instructions for taking it are on the bottle.’ Then He said, ‘This is My medicine bottle and the instructions are on it. You better read them.’

So I turned back and I saw that there are four instructions for taking God’s Word as medicine. You see, if a doctor gives you medicine in the natural, but you don’t take it according to the directions the doctor will say to, well, you couldn’t expect it to do you any good.

So if you have this passage in front of you, or if you will listen, I’ll give you the four directions for taking God’s Word as medicine. And there’s probably not a single person here who won’t need these directions at some time in your life. Very few of us live a full length of life without some encounter with sickness.

So store this up and have it ready when the situation arises.

Here are the four directions.

Number one, give attention to My words.

Number two, incline your ear to My sayings.

Number three, do not let them depart from your eyes.

And number four, keep them in the midst of your heart.

Let’s consider just briefly what’s involved in those four directions.

First of all, give attention. When you turn to the Bible and to the Word of God, you need to give it your total, undivided attention. Don’t be distracted. Try to shut yourself off from all other voices or influences or impressions. Give undivided attention to the word of God. After all, it’s God speaking to you. It’s worthwhile listening to what He has to say.
