    Verse 2 shows we must form a longing for God's Word. The more we read the Bible, the easier it can become and we even find it pleasurable.

    God is for the people they need to trust him.

    You are correct. Vv. 21-24 are talking about spiritual things. Each born again believer is to live above sin. By His stripes we are healed. Without His atonement, propitiation, we are powerless and mired in ourselves. The scripture doesn't mention the physical healing work. Just purification of our hearts, souls, and minds.

    I believe it means.. If one truly seeks God and is pure of heart God knows this.. Anything is possible. Therefore, is it crazy to imagine that God is not capable of changing the words of any written word, be it the bible or a comic book, and communicating with an individual instantly.. One on one. After all, God Is The Word. Alive inside the Living Word. Ask and You Shall Receive, right..? The bible tells me so.. Anyway, just my thoughts and feelings on the subject.. Thanks for listening or reading Lol Attention: pay it
