The word of God is YE and AMEN. The word of God is alive and active. This words are full of power and authority. HEBS 4-12 makes us understand that The word of God is quick, powerful and sharper than any two edged sword piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow. The word of God judges the thoughts and attitude of our heart.

 

What is word of God? The word of God can be referred to as a divine message. The word of God is the manifestation of the mind and will of God. His words helps us in Understanding and knowing who God is.

Knowing and dwelling on the word of God as Christian helps us

  1. Grow spiritually thereby making us to be matured Christians and not baby Christians
  2. The word of God helps us to get fortified as Christians. When trials and tribulations comes our way we are able to pray through.
  3. The word Heals, delivers and set free from bondages and captivaty.
  4. The word gives peace and comfort and many much more.

 

The bible says in the book of Matthew 24 vs 35 heaven and earth will pass away but none of my words will go in vain without coming to pass. Truly, none of God’s words has ever gone in vain without coming to pass. Whatever God says he will do he surely does. We all as believers and children of the most high God must always dwell and rely on the word of God. By doing this we channel peace and blessings into our lives which brings about us having everlasting joy in the lord.

 

During trials or challenging situations, the word of God and prayers is our weapon for victory. This not only brings comfort unto our soul, but it also brings peace, reassurance and breakthrough.

God doesn’t joke with his words. His words are strong and powerful. Ps 138 vs 2 tells us about how God honours his words more than his name.

The word of God helps us a Christians not to sin against God. Ps 119 vs 11. This book of the lord shall not depart from my mouth. I shall meditate on it day and night says the psalmist. When we meditate on the word of God Day and night, it helps us to grow spiritually.

May the good lord give us the grace to position ourselves in his Word so that his good plan for our lives will work for our greatest good in Jesus name. Amen
