Let the Word Change Things 05 November Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick [alive!], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
If youre in a fix of a situation today, I have good news. You dont have to do a thing about itexcept abide in the Word. The Word can change everything. You see, the Word of God is alive. It will go into the very marrow of your bones. It will go into your mind, your will and your emotions and change them. It will go into your spirit and get you born again. When you spend time meditating on that Wordwhen you abide in itit will begin to change your thinking. Then it will convert your way of living and turn you around. It will bring your body into health. It will make your mind sound. It will make you prosperous. It literally has the power of God within it! Although we work and put forth effort to learn that Word, to spend time in it, speak it and obey itit is actually the Word itself that brings about the changes in our lives. Thats what the writer of Hebrews means when he says we labour therefore to enter into that rest. We rest on the Word, knowing it will accomplish what God has promised. Some believers wear themselves out trying to make the Word of God come to pass. But thats not our job! Our job is not to make things happen. Our job is to let the Word abide in us. Our job is to abide in Jesus. Our job is to replace our thoughts with His thoughtsto speak and act in line with His Word. But it is God who performs it. Hes the One who will cause His promises to become a living, manifest reality in your life. Whats more, He can do it right in the midst of the worst trouble the world has ever seen. He can do it in the midst of the worst trouble in which you may find yourself. He can prosper you in the midst of famine. He can heal you in the midst of plagues. He can keep you safe when danger is on every hand. In fact, He canand willgive you anything you ask, if youre abiding in Him and His Word is abiding in you. In this position you are always asking according to His will. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him (1 John 5:14-15). So let not your heart be troubled! Just set your heart on Jesus. Just let the Word of God answer the situation…and youll make it through in the glorious victory of God.Ezekiel 1-3; Psalms 92-93The Word of God is alive and powerful, therefore I can enter into rest. Hebrews 4:11-12
