GOD’S Word is alive!!!!
For the Word that GOD speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. (AMP)
Have you ever wondered what the two-edged sword is? Well it is our words and GOD’S words. Our words need to line up with GOD’S Word. The way that HIS Word comes alive in our lives is by putting HIS Words into out mouth!!! We put HIS Word into our mouth by reading it, memorizing it, studying it and quoting it!!!!
This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. (AMP)
We need to have GOD’S Word going into out hearts and mouths all the time!!!!
20) MY son, attend to my words; consent and submit to MY sayings. 21) Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. 22) For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. 23) Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. 24) Put away from you false and dishonest speech, and willful and contrary talk put far from you. 25) Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], and let your gaze be straight before you. 26) Consider well the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established and ordered aright. 27) Turn not aside to the right hand or to the left; remove your foot from evil. (AMP)
Verse 21 tell us that it should not depart from our sight. Now that does not mean that we walk around with a Bible taped to our head. But it does mean that we need to keep reading HIS Word everyday!!!!
A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil]. (AMP)
The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks. (AMP)
So what is in our heart is what is going to come out of our mouth!!! So we need to put GOD’S Word into our mouth and speak HIS Word!!!! HIS Word is ALIVE and POWERFUL!!!!
