July 26: The Potency of God’s Word

Ezekiel 2:2

“And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.”

John 6:63

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

In our opening Scripture, it is amazing to note the potency of God’s Word in God’s dealing with prophet Ezekiel. In verse one of Ezekiel 2, the Lord spoke to him to stand upon his feet and He will speak unto him; and verse 2 tells us that the spirit of God’s Word entered into him when He spoke to him, and set him upon his feet, that he heard the Lord speaking unto him. Amazing and dramatic display of the power of God’s Word! Prophet Ezekiel did not rise upon his feet by an act of his will, no! The Word set him upon his feet. He did not obey the Word by an act of his will, but rather the Word was expressed through him by an act of God’s power! The Word literally stood him up when God said to stand up. This is nothing but pure expression of God’s power at work in prophet Ezekiel by the spoken Word. The Word has potent ability to deliver on every claim and command that it makes.

The Lord Jesus speaking in John 6:63 says it is the spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing; He says the words that He speaks are spirits and life. Inherent in the Word is the potent power to make alive and revitalize everyone who receives it. Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 55:10-11 describes and likens the potency and ministry of the Word to the rain and the snow descending from heaven upon the earth to cause it to bud and bring forth fruits; it says it will not return to heaven until this is fulfilled. So is the Word of God, it is potent to accomplish what God pleases and prosper in the thing whereto He sent it.

God’s Word doesn’t need help to fulfil what it says, it only needs to be received into one’s heart, and it will produce what it talks about. It is potent to make itself good, anywhere, anytime. Receive God’s Word into your heart today by faith. Hallelujah!

My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Father I thank You that Your Word is potent to deliver on every claim and demands that it makes, and I receive Your Word with faith and gratitude. Amen.
