The Integrity of the Word

The seed, according to Mark 4:26, is the word of God.

Andrew Wommack usually puts it this way; “our potential cannot be realized apart from God’s word.”

As I read the word of God, I realize the word of God is the foundation of everything we do.  The word is what brings forth fruit in our lives.  Hebrews 4:2, talks about the word being mixed with faith. And 1 Peter 1:23 sees it as the incorruptible word of God.

In a world with corruption, there is a fight on how we can explore the hope we all desperately seek. Sometimes, we fight trying to hold unto what in the end could be corrupted. But the reality is: the only true hope we have is the word of God and we need to anchor our life on his word.

I have had promises from different people, so have you. Promises from job offers to wonderful blissful never-ending- relationships. All of a sudden, it all changed. The reality is; the promises of men would always change. Not because they’re bad people, but because humans don’t have all the capacity to bring all dreams and pursuit to reality. But what, and who has the ability to bring all the promises to reality? It is the word of God which he has spoken concerning us.

The word isn’t magical. It has to be planted in our heart and it germinates before its power can be released.

As I was listening to Q/A from Rob Thompson Ministry, Justin the commentator, made a profound statement of how we should learn   to commit the bible to our memory and surround ourselves with people of similar value.  It is true that the word of God is powerless in our life until we plant it in our heart. The word can be planted  through confessing it. The Psalmist eloquently puts it this way. “Thy word have I hid in my heart….” Psalm 119:11. Let’s learn to commit the word of God to memory and confess it.
