Is the Word of God- living?

Is the Word of God- living? If your answer is yes- what does that mean?

The Lord revealed to me this morning what it is to agree with Him that the Word of God is living and active and cannot return to Him void or useless.

A friend called for intercession regarding a speaking engagement at an upcoming conference.  The Lord opened my mouth and had me  pray that the Word of God given to her would be spoken into the people with such fire and life that the presence of the Word now living within them would create deliverance not only in that room but in the market place, home and every subsequent location those listeners entered.

When we agree with scripture, it penetrates into the deepest parts of us, ignites with submission to the presence of God and delivers His people without any action on our part other than entering the room. This truth has left me in awe and praise all day long.

 

Hebrews 4:12 (AMP)

12 For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [a]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [b]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Isaiah   5:11 (AMP)

So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;

It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),

Without accomplishing what I desire,

And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

 

Pray:  Teach me to pray.  I confess that my prayers are little and without proper awe of the Lord. Deliver me from this ignorance.  Teach me, my heart is willing and my entire being desires to hide the Word of God within me, to meditate on Your Word and be ignited by its living presence.  Reveal to me the depth of Your scripture as deep calls to deep I ask that You grant Your daughter the eyes, ears, heart, and mind to see, feel, and know the fullness of scripture.  Reveal so that I might operate as a useful and willing tool to enter where I am sent, carrying Your healing truth and salvation within me.  Thank You,  Amen.

Slow trickle

floodgate

An anticipatory flutter begin in my heart and intensified to a jackhammers pace, as my foot touched the pavement and I felt the vibration and power.  Niagara Falls, came fully into view as my vision crashed straight into my physical being, I was overwhelmed and fell to my knees crying. The power and majesty was undeniably a gift from God.  Words can not describe God’s power but this vision and its sheer physical presence, reduced all denials of God’s existence and power to rubble.

When it is not the tourist season, they reduce the amount of water flowing over the Niagara Falls.  For very practical reasons they reduce the falls power, to make it more manageable to harness the resource of water for their own desires.  I restrict God’s power and might in my life.  For practical reasons of course.  I reduce God to make Him more manageable, understandable and less breathtaking.  Just to catch my breathe I say, just for a little bit till I have more time or maybe when I gain more faith, I will let God’s full majesty roar.

I’ve decided to open up the floodgates.

Pray: Lord Jesus overwhelm me.  I have no desire to live my life without your power and might.  I don’t want practical any more I want Your fire and power, Your indwelling Presence overwhelming my human desires.  I desire to place you on your rightful throne at the center of my life.  Wherever your sweeping force takes me I will go.  Send me and empower me, I’m lost without your guidance.  Lord Jesus open up the floodgates of heaven send down your blessing and favor but also your fire to remove my impurities.  I desire more of you and less of me.  I can not become, what you created me to be, without your rod and staff, I submit to it now.  In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
