The Power of His Word

on February 23, 2012

“Order my steps in thy word:  and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”  Psalm 119:133

As a Christian, God’s word is one of the most powerful and useful things we have.  Whether it’s His spoken word which He speaks to us, or His written Word (the Bible), we can safely say that its power is beyond our comprehension.  Hebrews 4:12 says, “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 the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

We can see the truth in this verse through our own experiences with God’s Word.  We may read a passage of scripture one day and draw meaning from it.  Yet on another day, when we’re struggling with something different, we read the exact passage and it conveys a different meaning which is appropriate for that day.  Through God’s Word, we find scripture that teaches us and uplifts us.

God speaks to us through the Bible.  It’s a road map for our lives and for our walk with Him.  Without the Bible, there is an element missing in our lives.  Today I challenge you to find the treasures that lie deep within the Word of God.  Realize its power and attend to the fact that God is delivering to you exactly what you need for that day.  In turn, you will find wisdom and instruction that you otherwise wouldn’t have known.
