The Psalmist said, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path" (Psalms 119:105). Have you ever meditated on the meaning of this scripture? God's Word is the most powerful force in the universe. The power of His Word is miraculous. If we are to obtain the fullness of power in life and service, we must feed upon the Word of God. Let's explore the power of His Word.
God's Word has power to convict of sin. In Acts 2:37 we read, "Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
God's Word has power to regenerate. 1 Peter 1:23, "Being born again, not of the corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever."
God's Word produces faith. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom. 10:17).
God's Word Has Power to build up. In Acts 20:32, we read: "I commend you to God, and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up."
God's Word Has Power to Make Us Wise. "The entrance of Thy Words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple" (Psa. 119:130).
God's Word Has Power to Give Assurance of Eternal Life. "These things have I written unto you that ye may know that ye have eternal life" (1 John 5:13).
God's Word Has Power to Bring Patience, Comfort and Hope. "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope" (Rom. 15:4).
God's Word has the Power to bring prosperity. For it is God who gives us the power to get wealth! This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
God's Word Has Power to Bring Peace into the Heart. In Psalm 85:8, we read, "I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His saints."
