4PowersABelieverHas - (1) PowerOfTheWord

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God -John 1:1                                                                                                          

The centurion implored Jesus saying "Sir only speak the word and my servant will be healed". It did happen as the centurion had faith for. As your faith is, so shall it be onto you. The substratum of all that we see, hear or have is the word of God. (Copy and tweet). The opening scripture says through the word, God created all that we see and all things were created for the word. For those of us who are familiar with the Bible and its theological meaning, we know that this expression is about Jesus. (Copy and tweet).

In simplicity we are being told that there is power in studying the word of God. The word is the manifestation of the thoughts of God for mankind. The more a person studies it, the more they will be in tandem with the mind of God for their lives. (Copy and tweet). God reveals His thoughts to us through His word. This only comes to those who are constantly seeking him in the study of His word.

The fight we have with the devil has never been about what we desire, but to stop us from studying the word of God. (Copy and tweet). In order to have power to overcome, a deeper search for revealed truths of God’s word is what will make the difference. The devil is not afraid of the Pope, Archbishop, Prophet etc. but the word of God. Jesus counteracted the devil with the word of God and he left for a season. If Jesus studied the word in order to defeat the enemy, then the responsibility to do likewise falls on us. (Copy and tweet).

Mere words don’t make a person wise but it is the word of God that makes the difference. (Copy and tweet). One cannot overemphasise the value the word of God plays in our lives. You cannot win convincingly when you underplay the significance of the word of God in your life. We are commanded in Joshua never to depart from the word if we require good success. This means there are levels of success but it is the word which insures that you achieve good success as a child of God. Anything a person builds or amasses outside the word of God will not last forever. (Copy and tweet). Anything built on the principles of the word, survives the onslaught of the enemy for ages to come.

John Harvard the first benefactor to the now Harvard University, was an English Pastor who emigrated from the United Kingdom to New England and settled in Charlestown. Upon his death, he bequeathed half of his estate to the new college which had been founded which was headed by his friend Nathaniel Eaton. It was later renamed Harvard University. The essence of this history is to depict what the word does in a person’s life. (Copy and tweet). Harvard is recognised as one of the world foremost Ivy League universities in the word.

Dr Kwame Nkrumah, one of Africa’s foremost sons, had a bachelor’s degree in theology. It is said he had thought of preaching until the need to lead his people and subsequently the entirety of Africa into liberation, consumed him. His leadership beliefs stemmed from the word. The word has enough dynamite to change a life, a corporation, vision, and an entire continent. (Copy and tweet). You can be everything God has destined you to be when a concerted effort is made into studying the word and living off it. (Copy and tweet).

If by the word God created everything we behold, then I can say that by the same word, God rewards. (Copy and tweet). The word has potency which can never be underestimated by any. God shows respect even onto his word. The writer in Psalm 138:1 says “He has lifted His word above his name”. (Copy and tweet). When you walk with God according to the word, men will be drawn to you. Your good success is waiting in the word. The jewels for overcoming, is hidden in the word of God.

In His Service
