Quick and Powerful

Description

Make more use of the sword, the Word of God. Draw upon God's power to live supernaturally.

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged 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, KJV).

Often, what you and I have to say may seem weak and insipid. But then we have the clear promise that it really will accomplish something, for it has several characteristics that guarantee such results.

First, the holy inspired Word of God is impregnated with the power of the Holy Spirit and is quick-living. It is energetic and active - not dead, inert or powerless.

Second, the Word is powerful. Its mighty power awakens the conscience, reveals our fears, bares the secret feelings of the heart and causes the sinner to tremble at the threat of impending judgement.

Third, the Word is sharp-sharper than a two-edged sword. The Word has power to penetrate. It reaches the heart, laying open our motives and feelings.

Fourth, the Word pierces, penetrates.

Fifth, the Word discerns-shows what our thoughts and intentions are. Men see their real character in the mirror of God's Word.

Those are some of the reasons for choosing to use the Word of God in every possible situation, allowing it to be its own best defense. God's Word will never return unto Him void.

Bible Reading: Psalm 1

TODAY'S ACTION POINT: I will make more use of the sword, the Word of God, as I draw upon God's power to live supernaturally.
