“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.”
Nothing compares to the Word of God. It is Active, Operative, Energizing and Effective.
The work that the Word of God does is like no other. There is something about God’s Word that reaches into the unreachable places of our spirits and exposes what needs exposing. God’s Word brings into alignment our thoughts, actions and our plans – with His truth.
Whatever there is within us contrary to the Word of Truth, it will be exposed so we can make changes. Sometimes this can be a painful time, if it is a past hurt or a painful memory we have long before buried deep within. We often don’t want to revisit the past, when it brings us so much pain.
God’s Word can bring healing, restoration, comfort and hope. It builds up our faith to be able to stand firm. We need to allow God’s word to do a thorough work within, and align our lives to God’s truth.
The world disguises lies as truth, but God’s Word will stand and expose it for what it is. Don’t get caught up in what the world says, but measure it up with what God’s Word of Truth says.
Lord, I thank you for your word
That penetrates deep within
Help me to allow you, Lord
Expose what I have hidden.
