The Word Of God Within

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
— 1 Thessalonians 2:13

Those who are open to truth recognize it when it hits their hearts and souls. 

The Word of God is powerful and works within those who believe. It is alive and active. Truth

God even magnifies His Word above His name, 

"I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name." Psalm 138:2

God reveals Himself through His Word. A Word From God changes things. 

A Word from God can come to us through our fellow humans, as it did through Paul to the Thessalonians, however, be careful. We must always check what we are told with the Bible. God does not contradict Himself. He is a God of unity and consistency. 

A true Word from God works within us and through us as we believe and take Him at His Word. His Word is not to be read as a passing text solely for knowledge, but as One with heart transforming power.  

 "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

May the Living Word hit your heart today. 

To Ponder:

How may I allow God's Word of Truth to touch my life today?


Father God, 

Your Word is powerful. May I take You at Your Word today and allow my life and heart to be transformed by You. I believe. May Your Word work within me. Teach me to apply Your Word to my life and all I do with the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. 

In Jesus' name amen.
