For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
Note that it didn’t say “soul from spirit” but instead “soul and spirit”. When the word is said to be quick and powerful, it means it is living and active. Quick to discern and able to judge the reflections and intents of the heart; discerning and purposing the heart. The comparison of the Word of God to a sword in the text above is designed to show its power of penetrating the heart. And cause drastic changes in our lives.
One thing is certain and has been proven. That is, we can make a change in our present level to cause a drastic change in our tomorrow, which would benefit and improve our lives.
Perhaps your current situation is so dire that there is no hope for you. So blocked that you no longer see a way out. And so dark that you see no light at the end of the tunnel.
I have good news for you: I see a bright light at the end of the tunnel shining just for you. I see restoration and I see that hope in your eyes and heart again.
But to witness restoration and for your faith to grow stronger and stronger in the Lord and in yourself, you will need the word of God. For it’s only the word of God that can solidly build every aspect of your life. It tells you who you are now and who you should be. It also helps you to see and embrace the truth which cannot be easily accepted by people of the world.
Now the big question is: How do you make the Word of God work
Well, the question seems to be big but indeed, it’s not. The only best, proven and easiest way to make the word of God work for you is to personalize it. And then respond accordingly with your heart.
When I say personalize it, I mean you take it as God’s Word to you personally. Take it as God is directly speaking to you and then act accordingly.
Note, the fact that the word of God exists in some pages wouldn’t work for you if you don’t work it out. The fact that your bible is new and expensive still won’t work out for you. You first have to work it out for it to work for you.
Remember, the words in the bible that God speaks to you is spirit and life. And it’s sharper than any two-edged sword.
Study and meditate on it to see results in your life. Don’t just read it. Act it. Declare it. Work it out.
To work out your own salvation; use the Word to create and sustain your victories in life. Glory to Jesus. This is just simple. It’s the best you can ever get. He said to create and sustain. Meaning you can use it to start what you want and still maintain it regardless of obstacles. Conquering and being victorious in every field or aspect of your life. And achieving success in a sweatless manner.
Take possession any time you hear, study or meditate on the word. Make it yours. Cos it actually exists for your sake. It’s your spiritual mirror which you can’t do without. And when you apprehend and make it yours, it becomes a part of you, helping you speak and act it.
The Word of God can lift you from where you are to your next level. A level full glory and success.
Open up yourself to see the ability and efficacy of the Word in your life and in the lives of others.
1 Peter 1:23
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
1 Thessalonians 2:13
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
