So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

It would seem paradoxical to think that some people who go to church don’t have time to listen to the Word. Some of them love the music; they enjoy the music ministrations, after which they leave the church service. They don’t wait for the message, because they have no value for the Word. The Word of God is too important. To value the Word is to value Jesus, for Jesus is the living Word.

The Bible says, “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be” (Genesis 49:10). When the Word of God is taught in church, it’s not only so we can learn it or just for us to believe and act upon it, but it’s also for the Word to reproduce itself in us. It’s the greatest benefit we derive from the Word of God. Hallelujah!

As you listen to, and believe the Word, the creative power therein comes into effect and transforms your life. That’s the mystery of the spoken Word! The ministration of God’s Word produces in you what it talks about. God’s Word has the divine power to do what it says. It’s different from man’s words. Anyone can say anything, but when it’s the Word of God, it has the power to affect our human spirits. There’s a miracle power about it that works.

Cherish the Word. Let it be what you delight in the most whenever you’re in church. As you receive the Word, it has the potentiality and capacity to make you what it talks about. That’s the wonder of God’s Word.

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for the wonder-working power of your Word; it heals the sick and raises the dead. The Word works in and for me always, producing the results of what it talks about, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
