So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed (Acts.19.20).
As an agent of change, the word of God has no limitation. It cuts across every known barrier to accomplish tasks. It is not limited by distance, time or defence. It runs errand swiftly like an air would. It is operative in every realm. It finds expression always. As a matter of fact, it has no permission to return to God without accomplishing its assignment.
Discovering this secret will help the believer Stay true with the word irrespective of the prevailing circumstances. God hasn’t deemed it fit to replace his word with another thing hence, it remains his instrument of change and battle axe. Jesus said, “the word I speak to you, they are spirit and life”.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Heb.4.12).
The word is active, full of power, sharp, penetrative and discerning, meaning that its functions are numerous. But all these only work for the Believer who knows and applies. It is not magical, rather it is a principle of the supernatural for the discerning. Nothing stops the word of God from getting fulfiled.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater. So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isa.55.10 – 11).
