The Word Is Alive
How can God’s Word become one thing for one person and something else for another?
Because it is alive! The Word of God is full of life. Full! Therefore, it administers life wherever it is applied. It doesn’t matter how dark and deadly your circumstances may be. There is enough life in God’s Word to totally overwhelm all the death that the world, the devil or circumstances can bring you.
The Bible likens the Word to a natural seed. Every seed has within it all the dna required to produce whatever kind of seed it is. If it’s a peach seed, all that is required to be a peach tree is in the seed.
In the same way, the Word of God has the supernatural life within it to fulfill the promises of God in your life. You plant it in your heart as a seed, but when it comes up, it produces salvation, prosperity, healing, deliverance—whatever God has said belongs to you!
If you have a need in your life today, go to the Word of God. Find a promise to stand on regarding your need…begin planting that seed in your heart. Say it aloud over and over as you let that Word take root inside of you. Let that Word become real to you. And then watch it come alive!
Speak the Word
