Alive & Powerful

I believe the word of God is alive and powerful. I have used God’s word throughout different situations and it has been the only thing that fully transformed or restored me and the different areas of my life.

Each Wednesday I will be bringing you a new Bible Verse and a Scripture Picture.

I hope you will leave your thoughts in the comments each week with what the verses mean to you or how you have used them in your own life.

Be sure to follow @RestoredPeople on Twitter and # your own favorite verses each week using #WordofGodWednesday

There is nothing we can’t overcome by the Promise of God’s Word and The Power of the Holy Spirit! ~ XXOO Michelle Bollom

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. ~ Hebrews 4:12 NLT

“The Holy Scriptures are the word of God. When God sets it home by His Spirit, it convinces powerfully, converts powerfully, and comforts powerfully. It makes a soul that has long been proud to be humble; and a perverse spirit, to be meek and obedient. Sinful habits, that have become as it were natural to the soul, and rooted deeply in it, are separated and cut off by this sword. It will uncover in men their thoughts and purposes, the vileness of many, the bad principles they are moved by, the sinful ends they pursue. The word will show the sinner all that is in his heart. Let us hold fast the doctrines of Christian faith in our heads, it’s enlivening principles in our hearts, the open profession of it in our lips, and be subject to it in our lives.” ~Matthew Henry Concise Commentary Hebrews 4:12

  1. I think about the verse in terms of each edge of The Sword: one side to defeat the enemy, the other to protect ourselves. It’s a new fave verse of mine. 🙂
