Verse Of The Day : For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword… Hebrews 4:12
Thought of The Day : God’s word is the immortal force that gives life to mortal beings.
LISTEN : God’s word carries life and power. The word of God is mighty because God is the Almighty. His word quakes the foundations of the world because the world was formed by the same word (Genesis 1:1-31). As a matter of fact, God’s word is the immortal force that gives life to mortal beings. The Bible says,
“He sent his word, and healed them,
and delivered them from their destructions.“
When Jesus Christ the word of God came to the world, He came with power to save, heal and deliver from destruction. He came to save the world from the power of sin and Satan. He came with power from above. God is the power behind His word. He expresses His will through His words. His words do not fail because He guides it with His own name. His word carries life and power. With His word He carries out His purposes. God’s word searches our hearts and powerfully penetrates our minds more than a two-edged sword can penetrate the human body. Our verse of the day says,
“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than
any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit,
and joints from marrow; it is able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart.“
My dear, there is no part of us that is hidden ‘in the eyes’ of the word of God. His word penetrates into our souls and spirits. God’s word is living and active. It performs the very purpose of God. by it God discerns all our thoughts and desires. His word exposes to us all our thoughts and desires. With His word He judges the wicked, saves the perishing, justifies the repentant, breaks chain of afflictions, heals the sick and sets captives free. This season (the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ), demonstrates God’s power in action. Henceforth, embrace the word of God and you will obtain, life. Be wise!
