For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Heb. 4:12 KJV)
There is something different about the words that God speaks. He created the world by speaking, and that same God has given us the same Word to guide every step of our path. The Word of God is described in the verse above as being quick and powerful.
The Word “quick” means it is living, having the very life of God in it.The words that God speaks carry His life. Jesus said,
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life (Jn. 6:63 KJV)
His words do not only carry His life, but they are His life—they are spirit and life. His words will manifest or exercise every aspect of His life, as though God in Person was present. This is the reason why a sinner can hear God’s words and become saved and recreated.
God’s Word is not only living but is powerful, having an inherent ability to interact with the affairs of life and command a change. His word is robust and able to produce a difference in any aspect of our lives actively. The scriptures are written documentation of His Word preserved for us. We have power in our hands.
His Word begins it’s work in our lives when we take it into our hearts. This is where meditation comes in. As you ponder upon the verse and devotional above, declare “The Word of God is alive and operating in my life producing results in my relationship with God, health, finances, and relationship!
