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
There’s a reason why you should study and know the “Word of God” because not only is it full of wisdom and power. But this is a gift from God that is priceless and lead you to eternal life. It’s no surprise why the world is offended by the Word of God because the Word is truth and truth can’t be rebuked.
(2 Peter 1:21) “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Non-believers will try to discredit The Bible by the authors who wrote the Bible. But they don’t understand the Bible was written by God thru humans by the Holy Spirit. Once you understand this you begin to see “The Power of the Word of God” as there is no situation or no problem that can’t be solved using The Bible.
(2 Timothy 3:16) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The Word of God is not only a great historical resource but we should use for our daily instruction. There is no problem under the sun that God hasn’t seen. If your feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, confused, ect. The Bible has scriptures and stories to guide you thru your daily life:
• Knowledge- Proverbs 3-5:6
• Rest- Matthew 11:28-30
• Overwhelmed Luke 18:27
• Love John 3:16
• Forgiveness Romans 8:1
• Wisdom 1 Corinthians 1:30
• Strength Philippians 4:13
• Fear 2 Timothy 1:7
• Loneliness Hebrews 13:5
(Isaiah 49:2) “He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.
As the prophet Isaiah said God made his mouth like a Sword. What did he mean? He meant the Holy Spirit came thru him and spoke the powerful “ Words of God” that lead the nation of Israel back to redemption. We have the privilege to already have these Words giving to us in the Bible. Don’t be foolish and squander this gift from God. King Solomon’s only wish to God was to have wisdom, and we have all that wisdom right now. So the question is what are you going to do with this gift? Are you going to use your sword or allow the world to slay you?
