Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Over the years from time to time, I have up-graded our cell phones to newer models. Each time the phones were up-graded, the new phone had to be activated with the provider in order to have service to enable the cell phones to be used. Unless the new phone was activated, it could not be used.
A step in attaining true spiritual growth, will require the “activation” of the Word of God in a person’s life.
When we activate something, it then becomes operative, and effective.
So one might ask the question “what do I need to do to activate the “word of God” in my life?”
These five steps will assist with activating the word of God:
- Reading…spend time each day reading and studying the Bible. Ask God to give you revelation of His word. If a person reads 5 to six pages each day, it’s possible that a person could read the entire Bible in a year.
- Speaking…the scriptures out loud to put them in the atmosphere around you.
- Listening…have quite time when you can hear and listen for voice of God
- Applying…(obedience) the word of God to your daily walk, so that it will become a part of your lifestyle
- Exercising…faith by believing that every word of God is true. Faith is a believer’s spiritual muscle. The more it is exercised, the stronger it becomes.
In the book of Isaiah Chapter 55 Vs.11, God gives a natural explanation of His word accomplishing what He supernaturally intends for it to do.
Isaiah 55:11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
God is faithful to do what His word says he will do.
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
- When a person asks God to activate His word in their lives God will do it.
- When a person seeks the word of God, he will find it.
- When a person knocks on the door for revelation of His word, God will open the door of revelation and increase your understanding.
The word of God is eternal
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
The Word of God is unchanging
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
Want a change in your life? Activate the word God and experience the peace that will pass all understanding.
Father in heaven, thank you for Your word that changes not, in Jesus name…Amen!
Continuing in His service…Rev
