The Word of God is living and powerful, active, operative, energizing and effective. It is the Sword of the Holy Spirit. God's Word is a World-framer. It is God in Print! It is medicine/health to your entire body when it has taken up residence in the midst of your heart. The Word is an incorruptible seed, which implanted in your heart, is able to save you soul. It is fuel for the human spirit. The Word of Truth is the mystery hidden from generations past but has now been revealed to the SAINTS!
Despite the effectual nature of God’s Word, Jesus reveals that a man could actually render it ineffective in his own life through religion or traditions of men. To avoid this, have a child-like attitude of delight and hunger for the Word always. Your only recourse in any situation in life should be the Word of God. When in a dilemma or state of indecision, search the Word for information or instruction that covers that situation and having found it, put it to work. That’s how to honour the Word and give it pre-eminence in your life, and it’ll always work for you.
