Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible (adunatos); but with God all things are possible (dunatos).
God's word is not like man's word. Men's words are tenuous and full of impossibilities. God's words are powerful and full of the possibilities of God.
Isaiah 55:8-11 For my thoughts are
not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher
than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain
cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth
the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to
the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth
out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish
that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick (alive) and powerful (energes) , and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
God's word is alive and powerful. God's power, inherent in His word, is energized when we believe His word.
I Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause
also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of
God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word
of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh
(energeo - is energized)
also in you that believe.
Luke 4:32,36 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power (exousia - authority). . . And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority (exousia) and power (dunamis) he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
God backs His word. When God's word is spoken by a believer it carries the authority and power of God.
Matthew 8:5-9 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority (exousia) having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
God's word is powerful. It has authority. Just as the centurion could give a command and it would be immediately carried out, God's word produces immediate results because it carries the authority of God.
Remember Genesis? "God said, let there be light: and there was light."
Acts 19:20 So mightily (kratos) grew the word of God and prevailed (ischuo).
The word of God has impact! When the believers in Acts 19 received the word they got rid of the junk in their lives and turned to God. God's powerful word prevailed in their lives.
Ephesians 1:19-20 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (dunamis) to usward who believe, according to the working (energeo) of his mighty power (kratos), Which he wrought (energeo) in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, . . .
What a powerful word! God energized the
potential power in His word with great impact when He raised the Lord Jesus
Christ from the dead and set him at His own right hand. God's word
truely is a powerful word.
