The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword; it cuts on both sides (Hebrews 4:12). It tells us that God will make our enemies our footstools (Psalm 110:1). The Word also gives us power and strength, and can dethrone idols. Matthew 24:35 (KJV) says “’Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Whatever you are dealing with today, whether it be an idol, an enemy, a burden, or a problem, let the Word of God dwell in you richly. In Acts 19:20 we find these words:
“So the message about the Lord spread widely and had a powerful effect.”
The people of Ephesus were known for practicing magic and sorcery. Many of them converted to Christianity after hearing Paul’s message. The word of God spread throughout the city and was able to overcome the magic and the sorcery, bringing down the evil spirits and idols. It had wonder-working power. The Word of God held up in spite of their ceremonies and rituals. The Word of God will withstand any test. Thank God today for the power of His Word. It has lasted for generations and still has power today. Depend and rely on it!
