The Living Word
v12 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword.”
Here we are being reminded that our living and active God uses his living and active word to minister to us. The Message continues this verse saying “God’s word is……cutting through everything, whether doubt or defence, laying us open to listen and obey”. What a mighty power we have free access to?
One of the main ways God speaks to us is through his word, his living and active word. He has an amazing way of using a verse or passage to bring new life into our souls, or to spur us on to do his work. However, we must read it with an open, spirit-filled, listening heart, eager to hear what God has to say to us.
Father thank you for your living and active word and your longing to speak to me through it. Help me as I read your word to do so with a listening heart, giving you time to speak your wisdom into my life. Amen.
