Power in the Word

In Genesis, the book of beginnings, we read that God spoke his word to bring about creation (Genesis 1). Think about this for a minute; it’s so easy to read and not get the full impact of God’s word in this account of creation. God spoke through the prophet Isaiah that his word does not return void but accomplishes his purpose (Isa 55:11). God also said to the prophet Jeremiah: “I will hasten my word to perform it” (Jer 1:12; KJV) Are we getting the picture? Gods word has power to achieve what it states it will.

The apostle Peter had been fishing all night and caught nothing (Luke 5:5-7). However, at Jesus command he lowered the fishing nets again and caught a huge number of fishes. A centurion in Luke 7:7 told Jesus to just: "say in a word, and my servant shall be healed”. The servant was healed. There is no doubt that God's word is very powerful

King David said that God had magnified his word above his name (Ps 138:2). God's word should be our delight according to Psalm 1:2 and if we meditate on the word we will flourish (Josh 1:8). Meditation is a re-speaking of the word; it is not just a mental activity.

We should give great respect and attention to the word and line up our thoughts and decisions with the word. Speak the word over your circumstances and watch things change for the better. For example, if you need healing, find scriptures on healing and speak them over your body, command your body to lineup with God’s word, claim that healing. Believe healing is yours and experience the power of God’s word.

A Recipe for Change

I love Paul’s humility in 1 Cor 2:1-5. He gets to the very crux of the source and power of Christianity. He says I came preaching the Gospel with fear and trembling; speaking only God’s word, not man’s wisdom and not with elegance of speech. Paul dared not insert himself but focused on Jesus; allowing the Spirit to give him the words to share. He gave pre-eminence to the power of the word of God to affect and change men’s hearts and lives. His preaching was accompanied by clear demonstrations of the power of the Holy Spirit; signs wonders and miracles.

To preach, as the word is defined, is simply to proclaim, publish or herald. As the word is preached, the Holy Spirit takes it, reveals it to the sensitive and receptive heart and provides the power for the word to impact, bless and change the receptive listener (1 Cor 2:10). Paul was bold enough to say that as we preach in obedience to God and as directed by the Holy Spirit, then the father will demonstrate his power among us.

God’s word, his power, humility, fear of God and obedience, as exemplified in Paul’s life and ministry, are a recipe for change. We really need to meditate on this and get it down in our spirits.


Let God Do the Changing

There are always so many areas in our lives that we feel a need for God to change. Often, we get frustrated with our lack of progress. It is easy to want to try to do the changing ourselves, with our own effort but this does not work. We need to cooperate with God and allow him to do the doing.

So, what do we do? Well the word says the only work we need to do is to believe (John 6:29), to have faith; without faith we cannot please God (Heb 11:6). How does faith come? Well, we all have faith (Rom 12:3) but our faith grows by hearing the word (Rom 10:17). Everything in God’s kingdom is by faith, not human effort. If we want to be all God wants us to be, to be changed, then we need to be radical for him. God’s word is truth (John 17:17) and he tells us that if we know the truth it will set us free in all areas of our lives (John 8:32).

God talked to us through Moses and Joshua about being radical with the word. Moses said God’s word must be in our hearts. He said to teach it to our kids all the time, he said to write the word on our gates and doorposts (bathroom mirrors?), to bind it on our hands and hang it before our eyes (Deut 6:6-9) (have it on our computers?). Joshua said the word should always be in our mouths, we should meditate it day and night (Josh 1:8) (have it playing in the car?). Now that’s radical. But see what Joshua also said would happen if we were radical about the word. He said that saturating in the word would cause us to do the word (be changed) and that we would then have success and prosper. Wow, I want that, how about you? Let’s do it. Let’s rest in God’s love (Matt 11:28-30), do our part and see God work in us, through us and on our behalf. Have a blessed day in the word.

The Awesome Power of God’s Word

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish what which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isa 55:11; KJV).

God spoke the word to bring creation in to being (Gen 1). “And God said, let there be light: and there was light” (v3). In Hebrews chapter 4 and verse 12 we read that God’s word is powerful, has energy is active, living, at work and effective. But notice the emphasis on the word being spoken or leaving God’s mouth to be effective. We need to believe and speak God’s word for it to produce results in our lives. We had to do this to be saved and it is the same for all of our ongoing faith walk: “for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:10).

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith” (Mark 11:23). Believe and speak to your mountains (problems, challenges, etc.), command them to move in Jesus name and they have to move.

Speak the word today.

Trust God’s Word Today.

(1 John 5:14; KJV) "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to HIS WILL, he heareth us”. In this verse we read that we can make any request; as long as it is in accordance with God’s will. This means that we need to find out from the word what God’s will is. If we find that something is definitely God’s will, then we can pray with confidence that our prayer will be answered.

However, the apostle James warns us that if our prayers are selfish and greedy prayers they may not be answered (James 4:3). Having checked our motivation for praying, we need to follow this other instruction found in John’s gospel about prayer that we must ask in the name of Jesus. “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14).

The apostle James wrote, in his epistle, that: “yet ye have not, because ye ask not” (James 4:2). God wants us to ask him for what we need, because he delights in giving us the desires of our hearts (Ps 37:4). Find his promise for your situation and trust God today. “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24).
