How do we Release the Power of God’s Word in our Lives?

We talk a lot about the word of God, its power (Heb 4:12) and ability to change us (Gal 5:22). In the Bible, we are told that God’s word has power (Heb 4:12), that it is life and truth and that the truth will set us free. (John 17:17; 8:32) God spoke the word at creation and that Word released the power of the Holy Spirit to bring light (Gen 1:1-3; John 1:1-3).

So how do we release the life changing power of God’s word in our lives? I grew up in a school environment where we studied the word almost daily and I am glad as it gave me a lot of Bible knowledge. However, I was not a Christian then and to me the Bible was no different than other literature; I did however, enjoy all the battle stories. As Christians, we have the Holy Spirit on the inside of us (2 Cor 1:22) and that Spirit brings us revelation and understanding of God’s Word (John 14:26).

We need to prayerfully study God’s word and ask Him to reveal His wisdom to us by His Spirit. This takes time and discipline. Joshua said we should meditate the word day and night and do what that word tells us to do; (Josh 1:8) then we would be blessed. To meditate is to mull something around in our mind. Notice Joshua also said the word should not leave our mouth; we should speak it so our ears hear it.

To receive God’s power and life changing promises we need to grow our faith and the Bible says we do that by hearing Gods word (Rom 10:17). Are you getting the picture? We need to make the Bible a priority in our day and speak and meditate God’s word as we go about our daily life. “For then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” (Josh 1:8; KJV)
