For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
When you receive the Word as being from God and when you believe in the Word as God’s – then the Word begins to be at work within you. It is when we accept that we accept the Word “for what it really is” that is begins to “perform its work” in us.
It is the work of the Word of God to align us to the Truth and purposes of God.
- The Word of God is given to bring salvation from sin, sickness, death and hell.
- The Word of God is sent to bind up the broken hearted and heal the afflicted.
- The Word of God is sent to loose the chains of sin, addiction and Spiritual oppression.
- The Word of God is sent to illuminate truth and expose the lies of the kingdom of darkness.
- The Word of God is given to bring life and life more abundantly!
There are many great and wonderful benefits to the work of the Word of God in us. We are blessed because of it.And when others see it they have cause to give thanks to God.
But this only happens when it is recognised this is not from man alone; this is from God! That is, it is not just words, it is THE Word that is working life, freedom and victory in our lives, by the grace of God.
PRAYER: Father God, I invite your word and truth to work in my life. Father I want your outcomes and results to be evident in my heart and life. I love you Father, Amen.
