Hebrews 4:12, The Amplified Bible, Classic Edition, says, “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.” That’s just how powerful God’s Word is. Yet, so many times people treat the Bible like any other book. They pick it up, read a few words, and then put it down—never really realizing the power contained on those pages. And because they don’t, they miss the blessings God has promised and provided for them through His Word.
Not only is God’s Word effective, but it is alive and impactive! It is full of life and action, energized and ready to produce wonders and miracles in your life, and in the lives of those you share it with. But just having a Bible in your hand is not what causes those wonders and miracles to happen. You must activate the Word by speaking it, obeying it and sharing it with others. God’s desire is that His Word be effective and have a major impact in the lives of people around the world. And He is counting on you to help make that happen. Go into the world, and boldly speak God’s Word!
