IT’S FULL OF POWER
For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account – Hebrews 4:12-13 AMP
The amplified version of the Bible describes ‘Full of Power’ as “making it operative, energizing, and effective”. Truly, this is the Word of God: very reliable and sure. It’s not idle, occupying a space in your heart. Rather, the word of God is very active, firing you up towards successfully producing your desired or intended outcome.
The Word of God is not something you acquire just for knowing sake. No! It’s functional and no one can miss the effect it produces. So, you acquire the knowledge of God’s word for the impact and changes it produces in people’s lives.
For example, the word of the Lord says, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
John 14:13-14 NKJV
Now, Peter received this word, believed it, and went ahead to put it to work. So, when he saw the lame man at the beautiful gate (Acts 3:1-10), he asked him to get up and work in the name of Jesus. And the man got up and started leaping, walking, and praising God! So, when the Word was engaged, it went ahead to put right what was wrong, effecting a change in the life of the lame man.
The word of the Lord gives vitality and enthusiasm to whoever receives and believes it. Truly, it gives strength and eagerness to do something. This is because the word comes from the Maker, who is able to adjust or fix anything in His creation.
We see this in the first account of the massive catch of fish by Peter and his team. They had toiled all night and caught nothing. But when they heard the words of Jesus, they were energized to throw their net again. And this time they had a net-breaking catch.
“When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.”
Luke 5:4-6 NKJV
The word of the Lord is very effective. So, when it’s engaged, it surely produces the intended result. And God had declared that His word will not return back to Him without accomplishing His desired result. This means that the word of God cannot stop until it succeeds.
“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:11 NKJV.
When the centurion desired Christ to heal his servant, he told Him to just speak the word and his servant would be healed and it was so. And this had nothing to do with how far or how near the servant was. But what was desired was for the servant to be healed and it was so. Therefore, there’s no barrier to obtaining the intended result once the Word is spoken in faith.
“The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.”
Matthew 8:8, 13 NKJV
