“EVERY SCRIPTURE IS GOD-BREATHED (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness, So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
“For the WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IS ALIVE AND FULL OF POWER [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
While many have questioned whether there really is power in the Word of God (some have even questioned whether or not it really is inspired at all), I have seen the Power of God’s Word in operation more times than I can personally recount!
One of the most amazing things about the Word of God is that no matter how long ago it was spoken by Him, the Power upon it never fades or dissipates! It doesn’t matter who speaks His Word or Declares His Word because it’ll never lose its Power!
After all, It is His Word (Jesus Christ) which is holding all of creation together:
“For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; ALL THINGS WERE CREATED AND EXIST THROUGH HIM [by His service, intervention] AND IN AND FOR HIM. AND HE HIMSELF EXISTED BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND IN HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST (cohere, are held together).” Colossians 1:16-17
One of the most amazing things that I have discovered about this, is that His Word (even when it is spoken by me) carries His Creative and Life-Giving Power upon it even when comes out of my mouth. God may have spoken it first, but even if I am just repeating what He already said, it doesn’t diminish the fact that He was and Is still the author of it in the first place.
“For no prophecy ever originated because some man willed it [to do so—it never came by human impulse], BUT MEN SPOKE FROM GOD WHO WERE BORNE ALONG (moved and impelled) BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.” 2 Peter 1:21
Every time that I declare the Word (Jesus Christ) which God has already declared, the Holy Spirit attaches His Power and His Life to it just like He did the first time it was declared by the mouth of God, and as it goes forth it continues to accomplish what God sent it to do originally.
THERE’S STILL POWER IN THE WORD TODAY! READ THE WORD, DECLARE THE WORD, AND BELIEVE THAT WHAT GOD HAS SAID HE WILL DO FOR YOU!
For many of you, there’s a Miracle in your mouth, just waiting to take place, all you have to do is release it! Speak the Word and watch the Holy Spirit bring it to pass, even if it looks impossible all things are possible with Him!
