Paul was bound in chains and shortly to face death at the hands of the Roman government, yet he was free in his spirit and was absolutely certain that the Word of God was not bound. To the degree that we see God’s Word as greater and more powerful than any other force in the universe is the degree we will be willing to use it to accomplish God’s purpose and plan now through us. Chains, persecution, opposition or the decay of the world will never limit what God has plannned His Word will accomplish.
God gives the proof of this truth through the prophet Isaiah when He says, “so shall My word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11).
How do you see God’s Word? Will you use it through the help of the Holy Spirit to accomplish God’s purpose and plan?
