Word for Today
The Word (73)-the word of God is the power of God.
“For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power” (1Corinthians 4:20).
The word of God is the power of God. The word of God is the single most important thing in heaven, earth and underneath the earth. Heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God shall never pass away ( Mark 13:31). We know from the scriptures that Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1)
We know from the scriptures that in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth; the earth was void and in darkness , until God spoke His word: “Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3).
Beloved, as you LEARN to speak the word of God daily, the power of God is generated and light should begin to shine in your path and situation. Never forget anyone can say: ‘It’s shall be well with you’. Indeed, many people who do not believe in God have said it. However, NOT everyone can say, it is written:
“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings” (Isaiah 3:10). So, do not speak what merely look or sound like the word of God, but rather faithfully speak the undiluted word of God as it is written and watch God in action:
“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” (Hebrews 4:12).
“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29).
Father, please help me to speak your undiluted words in faith and to experience the power in your word daily in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
