For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword… – Hebrews 4:12 KJV

In yesterday’s devotional we read that, “the word of God is living”. True, but let’s move to another level: it is living and active. That’s the greater truth.

The word of God in your heart blesses you and is living, legally, but until it is vitalized you won’t benefit from the efficacy of it. Another translation says, “the word of God is quick and quickening” – meaning it has living power and it gives life.

This power of the word is only realized when it’s released, when it’s spoken, when it’s on your lips. Until God spoke the living word, the earth remained void and without form. It was the word of God on His lips that brought forth creation. He said, “Light be” and light became.

Jesus said, “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life”. Wait a minute: is it the words in Jesus heart or on His lips that are spirit and are life? It is the words He spoke that gave life.

He called out Lazarus from the grave using words. He did not get close to the grave and kept quiet knowing in His heart that Lazarus could come out. No He spoke what He wanted to see. He spoke words, He spoke life and life became. Praise God!

You want to see life in your business today, speak words, speak life and see it blossom.
