The words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life (John 6:63).
“How few of us have realized the power of words. Jesus knew. Jesus’ words healed the sick, fed the multitudes, hushed the sea, raised the dead. Not only that, but they stirred such malignity and hatred in the hearts of the leaders of Israel that they finally nailed Him to the cross, just because of the words that He had spoken.
Paul makes us see it with a vividness that thrills. “By faith we understand that the worlds have been framed by the Word of God, so that what is seen hath not been made out of things which appear” (Heb. 11:3). God created the Universe with Words.
“The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.” Every word that God speaks has life in it. Remember Heb. 4:12: “The Logos of God is a Living Thing.” It is not like man’s words which die after a generation; God’s Word lives. I love to think of it as the “prevailing Word,” as it was in Ephesus. How it ruled over that wicked city! Today the Logos of God is ruling in the hearts of those who yield to its sway.
The Word has the authority of God in it now. It has the Righteousness of God in it. It has Recreating power for the unsaved. It has healing power for the sick. It is the very Bread of Heaven to the hungry in spirit. I wish that it could be like this: that when you pick up the Word it will mean that God is present with you and that the Word is His attitude toward you now. It is His attitude toward sin, toward Redemption, toward Righteousness, toward Eternal Life, toward the Sons and Daughters of God.”
The Word is the Will of the Father. God watches over His Word. What God says is, becomes.
