Day 4: God’s Word
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
God’s word [wurd] noun
1. the Bible.
We would not get very far without God’s Word.
In Genesis 1:3 God speaks creation into being. The whole universe comes together at His words. Sun, moon, stars, seas, plants, animals, people. Everything. Without God’s Word nothing would be here. Fast forward many years to the birth of Jesus. John 1:14 tells us that Jesus not only speaks God’s Word, He is God’s Word. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” God sent Jesus to earth to fix the break in the relationship between man and God brought about by sin. God’s Word gives us new life when we accept Jesus as our Savior.
After salvation, God’s Word continues to play a most important role in our lives. Through it God instructs and encourages us. He molds us and disciplines us. He shapes us into His image through our obedience to His Word and the Holy Spirit’s work in each believer. It’s important to grasp the power of His Word. Hebrews 4:12 tells us “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Pray God’s Word
I am so thankful for scripture and it’s power in my life. If you’ve not yet begun praying it, this is a perfect time to begin.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to give you a scripture for your prayer requests.
- Begin praying God’s Word over people and into situations.
- Memorize scripture. The more verses you know by heart, the more effectively you can pray.

I love the sentence, “Jesus not only speaks God’s Word, He is God’s Word. It gives me the Holy shivers!
