Hebrews 4:12 (KJV)
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
I watched as a little girl interacted with their housemaid with regards to watching the television. When no one was looking, the maid who normally would not hang around in the sitting room would change the channel to a program of her choice, and if the little girl requested to watch cartoons, the maid would just hush her to keep quiet. This was the case until the little girl got fed up and went to her parents’ room. When she came out, she declared boldly “Daddy said you should change the channel to my cartoon program”. It was as though her daddy spoke. For as the words left the little girl’s mouth, the maid immediately changed the channel and quickly left the sitting room.
The Greek word for “two-edged” used in qualifying God’s Word in our scripture text is “distomos”, which literally means “two mouthed”. The Word of God must flow from God’s mouth as it is written, through our own mouths for its transforming power to be physically seen in our lives or that of others.
Speaking idle words will see us hushed and mocked at by the enemy, but if just like the little girl, we enter into God’s presence and by faith, declare God’s Word with authority (Isa 55:11, 2Cor 4:13), the enemy has no choice but to comply, release all that belongs to us and flee.
Go into today remembering that Understanding this dynamic is crucial to our being able to enforce our rights in Christ over contrary circumstances.
