So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isa. 55:11 KJV).
A Word from God is indeed all that you need in this life to flourish, excel, and triumph over all spiritual and physical circumstances. When God speaks, His Word is full of His power and wisdom, and able to accomplish whatever He says. God operates by speaking, so when God wants to accomplish something in your life, He will speak to you or send His Word! A revelation of this truth is crucial.
The scriptures say “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Ps. 107:20 KJV)”. His Word is all you need. And when that Word showed up as a Man, the scripture says He healed all those who were sick.
The words that God speaks, and Jesus, the Word made flesh, carry the same life. When Jesus spoke, he operated with the same power as God’s word. He told His listeners “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life (Jn. 6:63 KJV)”. When God speaks, His words are also life and spirit. No other being in existence carries this kind of power. When you receive and sow God’s Word into your heart, and apply His Word by acting on it, you will have all you need to flourish in life.
Meditation is our first step towards putting the Word to work in our lives. Declare that “His Word is spirit and life to me”.
APPLY THE WORD
When believers truly comprehend and receive the power of God’s Word, they will learn to pay more attention to it. Is the Word a priority in your life?
One of the greatest prayers you can make to God is to ask the Spirit to open your eyes to the reality of His Word, to receive it, and do it continually. Could you pray this prayer?
