Power of The Word

The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth. What does straw have in common with grain?” declares the Lord. “Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
Jeremiah 23:28‭-‬29 NASB

The Word spoken rightly, in truth is powerful! The Word of God is like fire, all consuming everywhere it spreads.
The Word of God shatters, destroying falsehood, lies, deception.

If you have God’s word speak His truth. Someone needs to hear.

🌹Jesus is the Word. (John 1:14).
for our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29 NASB

A Disciple of Christ

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
John 8:31‭-‬32 NASB

Belief in Jesus in not enough. Even the demons believe in Jesus and they shudder (James 2:19).
Jesus instructed “those Jews who had believed” that if they continued in the word, “then you are truly disciples of Mine”.
Why should we stay, continue, in the word? Because Jesus said to but also because “you will know the truth, and it will make you free”.

In this world of so many differing views it is hard to tell truth from fiction. The word of God will set the truth before you and in that there is freedom.

🌹 Are you a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ?

Is God Dwelling Today?

My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.” ’ ”
Ezekiel 37:27‭-‬28 NASB

The Old Testament speaks of the dwelling of God amongst His people. His dwelling with them would be known among all the nations.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

The New Testament speaks of God who came in the flesh, Jesus Christ, and dwelt amongst us. His glory was seen.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
John 14:26 NASB

Today, God is seen in the believer by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. All nations will know that God is Lord by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in His people.

🌹Do others see Jesus in you?

Present Every Person Complete in Christ

For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Ezra 7:10 NASB

Is your heart set on knowing, studying God’s word? Knowing it and walking by God’s word? Practicing leads to telling others about God’s awesome plan. God’s plan is for you to walk closely with Him in an intimate, loving relationship.

If you are not reading daily and putting it into practice, how about starting today. Besides changing your life you could change someone else’s life.

🌹We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Colossians 1:28 NASB

Words of The Book

“Go, inquire of the Lord for me and for those who are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book which has been found; for great is the wrath of the Lord which is poured out on us because our fathers have not observed the word of the Lord, to do according to all that is written in this book.”
2 Chronicles 34:21‭NASB

Regarding this “book which has been found”; I wonder where it had been and for how long. I wonder how many Bibles are sitting on shelves or packed in boxes that are unread. And now we stand in wonder at the wrath of God being poured out in the world today. Could it be because we “have not observed the word of the Lord, to do all that is written in this book”?

🌹Lord God, as I open Your Holy word this morning, open my heart and soul to understanding so that I may honor You in my life by living according to all that is written in Your word.  Amen.

Words of This Book

“Go, inquire of the Lord for me and the people and all Judah concerning the words of this book that has been found, for great is the wrath of the Lord that burns against us, because our fathers have not listened to the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us.”
2 Kings 22:13 NASB

Wrath because they did not listened or obey the Word of God. Is there any wonder wrath is upon us now?

🌹Open the Word of God, the Bible. Read it as often as you have opportunity. It will be a blessing to you if you obey and it opens the door to God and who He is.

Heed the Word of the Lord

O generation, heed the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness to Israel, Or a land of thick darkness? Why do My people say, ‘We are free to roam; We will no longer come to You’?
Jeremiah 2:31 NASB

God is a God of justice. Holy. Perfect. He is also a God of love for His people. He wants the best for us. Loving and walking with Him according to His Holy Word in the light of His countenance.

The words, “We are free to roam; We will no longer come to You” breaks my heart. The compassion of God being rejected by the ones He loves. Rejected by the very ones He wants to experience His awesomeness, His abounding love, His contentment, His peace, His joy, and so on.

🌹For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:11‭-‬13 NASB

Feasting or Starving?

I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.”
Psalms 40:8 NASB

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
Deuteronomy 6:6 NASB

The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.
Psalms 37:31 NASB

Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.
Psalms 119:11 NASB

Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.
John 4:34 NASB

🌹What are you filling your heart with? The word of God is a delight to those who partake of it. It is direction. It is a treasure, a sunken treasure deep in the heart, that delights the heart when filled. The food that motivates us to accomplish the will of God. Are you feasting or starving?

Living Word

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
Proverbs 30:5 NASB

For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 NASB

God is His word. It is living and active just as God Himself. His word is pure and cleansing. God’s word brings us to the awareness of our need to be obedient to His word. His word is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

🌹Is the Word living in You? Is the Word active? Are you being perfected, transformed by the Word? Read it and watch as God changes you.

Therefore #1

Therefore, we must fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. 
Hebrews 4:1‭ NASB

Evaluation of the importance of God and His word in your life is vital.

And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain—
2 Corinthians 6:1 NASB

(Recommended that you read all of 2 Corinthians 6).

For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also did; but the word they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united with those who listened with faith.
Hebrews 4:2 NASB

The word working in you confirms your faith and unites you with the like-minded believer of God’s word. Don’t sell yourself short by missing out on the daily feeding of God’s word. It opens doors to experiences with God beyond anything you can imagine.

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of mere men, but as what it really is, the word of God, which also is at work in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 NASB

🌹 Therefore, let us read God’s word daily so we don’t fall short of God’s rest nor take His grace in vain, being united with other believers by the same faith.
