The Word of God has in it the power to accomplish the will of God. “For nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37, NIV). It has well been said, “God’s commandments are God’s enablements.” Jesus commanded the crippled man to stretch out his hand—the
very thing the man could not do. Yet that word of command gave him the power to obey. He trusted the word, obeyed, and was made whole (Mark 3:1-5). When we believe God’s Word and obey, He releases power—divine energy—that works in our lives to fulfill His purposes.


The Word of God in us is a great source of power in times of testing and suffering. If we appreciate the Word in our hearts, appropriate the Word in our minds, and apply the Word with our wills, we will be controlled by God’s Word—and He will give us victory.


Know this: “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to Thy Word….. Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:9, 11).


Meditate on these verses: Psalms 19:7-11; 40:8; 119:18, 24, 35; Luke 11:28.


Action assignment: Try to imagine what your life would be like if you had no knowledge of God’s Word. Thank God for what it means to you and ask Him to help you to apply it to
your life today.
