The Powerful Word of God

September 18, 2012 | Tags: ,

For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

Since graduating from seminary, I realized I never want to stop pursuing my theological education. A master’s degree in Theological Studies didn’t even scratch the surface on all there is to study and learn in theology. Some of the most well-known theologians of the centuries studied one book of the Bible, like the Book of Romans, their entire lives. And they didn’t do anything but barely scratch the surface of understanding either.

I love that about God. I love that I can never stop learning about Him. I love that I can look at the same verse over and over again and my depth of experiencing God’s application of it grows and grows. God is infinite and eternal. God’s Word is the Living Word. That means God will use His Word to speak to my unique situation each and every time I read it. That means that each time I open the Bible to study, read, memorize or meditate, He places me exactly where I need to be. I may not understand why, but He does. His Word is powerful.

Do we realize when we read Scripture, it’s that mighty? Do we realize the forces of darkness tremble when the Word of God is spoken? Do we realize that every time we read Truth, lies get replaced? We live in a day when we are blessed beyond measure that we can spend every free moment in the Bible through apps, recorded readings of the Bible, and other awesome resources He’s place in our hands. Use them every opportunity you can. Be in God’s Pure Word every chance you can. Be amazed at what the powerful Word of God can do in your life.

If you don’t have a Bible app yet, I recommend the one by YouVersion.com. You can go to YouVersion Mobile to learn more. It’s a great tool to take with you wherever you go. You can even listen to audio recordings right from the app.
