The Word

For the word of God is full of living power.
Hebrews 4:12a

The Bible is God’s Word. Because it’s God’s Word it is full of truth and power. When we listen to, read, meditate, speak, and obey the Word our lives are transformed by the power of God. Being immersed in the Word makes us prosperous and successful. Like it says in Joshua 1:8, “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

Spending time in God’s Word everyday will change your life! We need to spend quality quiet time in God’s Word everyday. This week take time to pray God’s Word. Because it’s His Word it is true and it will come to pass, so take the time to allow God’s Word to shape your thoughts and prayers.

Here are some examples for you to begin with, then dive into the Bible to find some passages of your own.

Psalm 46:1… God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Timothy 1:7… For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Philippians 4:19… And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Exodus 15:26… I am the LORD, who heals you.

James 1:5… If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
