There is power in the Word because it is more than knowledge and facts; it is life itself. Take time today to meditate on these powerful passages of Scripture. Make it your power utterance today. I’ve personalized it for you:

I Set my heart unto all the words which is testified among us this day, which I shall command my children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for me; because it is my life: and through this thing I shall prolong my days in the land…, (Deuteronomy 32:46-47 KJV).

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak [unto you], they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6: 63 KJV).For I have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to us. (1 Peter1:23-25NIV).

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12NIV).

The Word is alive – that’s how powerful it is! Embrace this truth from God’s Word today. If you’re like me, I’d try to memorize these passages for quick and easy use whenever I’m attacked or challenged, and when praying; it brings alive the power in the Word of God. Note: The backbone of prayer is our agreement with God’s Word.

Let’s pray: Father, Your Word is alive and active in my life. I surrender to the living and enduring power in the Word of God. Father, help me to embrace the truth of Your Word. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s reading: 1 Kings 14-15: Luke 22:21-46

God's Word is the Living and Life-giving Word.
