The Power of God’s Word

The Power of God’s Word

The Word of God is not simply scribbles on a page or ideas in a book. The Word of God is full of life and supplies the “nutrients” you need to make it through each day. Think about it for a moment: When you eat a bowl of spinach, you cannot see how the nutrients in that spinach actually affect your body. You can’t see the process of nutritious food getting into your organs and joints and making those things strong.  You can’t visualize it—but it still happens.

It’s the same way with the Word of God. The Word of God has nutrients to build you spiritually. You cannot understand how His words affect you, but they do! Every word is a container of power. It is an injection of God Himself. His power is released into you through His words, and by these injections of God Himself, you can project Him and go forward in life.

Proverbs 4:20–22 talks about the power of God’s Word:

My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh.

When you get sick and the doctor gives you some medicine to address how your body feels, those pills alter your body. The Bible is exactly the same way. God calls it medicine. It goes into whatever area that’s giving you a problem and it changes you. It affects all your flesh.

So don’t leave your Bible on your nightstand and blow it kisses every day. The way for the Word to truly change you is for you to read it, get it into your heart, and let its power alter your circumstances.
