Receiving the Manifestation of God’s Word

A christian with God's word

Receiving the manifestation of God's word is receiving the benefits of its power. God's word is powerful because it brings transformation.

It transforms. The transformation comes after it sanctifies the soul and mind. The mind is exposed to the corruption of the world. Whatever the eyes see or the ears hear goes into the mind, but it’s cleansed by the sanctifying power of God's word (John 17:17).

God's word has the power to restrain a person from sin. Sin cannot be conquered by personal efforts alone. Many have tried but couldn’t. Meticulous study of God's word will guard the heart against sinful thought. The Psalmist stored it up in the heart and helped him live above sin (Psalm 119:11).

It boosts faith. Faith comes by hearing God's word (Romans 10:17). Faith is the confidence and belief in God. It's impossible to please God without faith. God’s word builds faith to place trust in God.

God's word revives the soul. The body is sustained by food but the soul of sustained by God's word. The soul may have been weakened by activities, but God's word gives it its vigor and strength (Psalm 19:7).

God's word gives direction. It directs our steps as the Spirit of God speaks divine truth to us, enlightening the word and giving us understanding for life’s decisions, choices, and activities (Psalm 119:105).

God's word is a shield. It protects against the attack of the enemy and devilSatan and his cohorts strive to attack the mind with worries and lies, but it shields the mind from such (Proverbs 30:5).

To enjoy the manifold blessings of the power of God's word, do only receive the word but live by it, practically applying it to every aspect of your life (James 1:22).
