“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 ).
The Word of God has the ability to impact not only your spirit and your mind, but also your physical body. If you observe the opening Scripture, you’ll notice it says God’s Word reaches right into your joints and bone marrow! That means as you take the Word into you, it goes first into your mind, then into your spirit. Then as you continue to meditate on it, it goes right into your physical body, and impacts every fiber of your being.
God’s Word works in your spirit the same way physical food works in your body. Just as the food you eat is broken down and absorbed until it becomes part of you, the Word of God that you receive into you goes right into your spirit and becomes what it says in you. The Bible says “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all” (1Timothy 4:15). What things are you supposed to mediate on? God’s Word! It says give yourself completely to the Word. That’s another way of saying let God’s Word dominate you.
You have a responsibility to submit yourself to the Word of God and allow it inundate your entire being. Meditate on the Word to the point that it literally oozes out of your entire being—spirit, soul and body. Listen, study, and meditate on the scriptures until you can only think the Word way.
Make the quality decision today to let God’s Word dominate you. Be a doer and not just a hearer of the Word. Have definite times when you listen to God’s Word and study the Scriptures voraciously. Have definite times of meditation, when you ruminate on the Word and speak it until it soaks deeply into you. As you allow the Word of God dominate you, sickness, failure and everything that comes from the devil will not find place in your life! You’ll live victoriously everyday.
Dear Father, I thank you for the power of your Word and its ability to impact my spirit, soul and even my physical body. Your Word is inundating my entire being from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet! I’m living in strength, health and victory everyday, through the Word, in the Name of Jesus!
