OBEDIENCE RELEASES POWER PART 2

For the word of God is quick, 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. (Hebrews 4:12)

Hebrews 4:12 tells us the Word of God is living, active, full of life, and power.  We need to understand that whatever God has said to us is full of CREATIVE, LIFE GIVING POWER. And according to Isaiah 55:10-11, His Word will not return to Him void, but will accomplish, or prosper in what it was sent to do.

1 Peter 1:23 says  that we were ."..born again not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible seed by the Word of God which lives and abides forever!"


The word corruptible means perishable.  The Word of God is not perishable, His Word cannot die, it is eternal, which means it will always produce!


Do you know that in a tiny seed all the power to produce that seed is already contained in it. And when planted in good ground, will produce what it was designed to produce.  Even though the seed has life and power in it, it will not do anything without the good ground to release the power contained in that seed.


The same is true with the Word of God that has been spoken to you.  His Word already has in it the power to produce that result in your life.  But it will lay dormant, if you do not plant that Word in your heart by believing it and acting on it. 


Romans 6:17-18 tells us that "...but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered youBeing then made free from sin,....".  You see it is not enough to just hear the Word. It is not enough to even believe that Word.  We must obey it from our heart to release the power of God that is in that Word.


Look at James 2 :17  "So faith if it does not have works, (actions of obedience to back it up) by itself is destitute of power (inactive, dead).  


In John 12:42 we read where the chief rulers believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him publicly.  They had the Word in their heart.  They had the power residing in them, ready to release the life and power of God in their life, yet because they did not act on that Word, it did not benefit them. 


Paul said in Romans 1:17 that the Gospel of Jesus Christ contains the POWER of God to save you. Jesus said in Matthew 7:24  "So everyone who hears these words of min, and acts upon them (obeying them)  will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon a rock." (Amp)


Jesus knows that there will be no power in your life without believing and acting on His Word. If you want to see the power of God at work in your life you are going to have to become a doer of His Word.


When a man obeys God, and His Word, he gives the only possible evidence that in his heart he believes His Word.

RELEASE THE POWER OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE TODAY, BY BEING AN OBEDIENT DOER OF HIS WORD.
