For the word of God is quick, and powerful, 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. Hebrews 4:12 KJV.
What does the above Scripture passage really mean?
This means the Word of God is able to penetrate the hardest core of our being to bring conviction and true repentance and a turn around.
The word of God alone can discern our thoughts, reveal hidden secrets, change and transform our lives.
Only with true humility and self surrender are we able to heed the convincing and convicting Word of God.
If we surrender to the Lord completely, he will come in transform our lives.
Conviction does not mean condemnation. Conviction comes from God and leads to Godly sorrow and true repentance, whereas condemnation is from the enemy and leads to unnecessary guilt which does not lead to true repentance.
We need to beware of this.
The Word of God is unfailing, it is powerful.
Heavenly father, we worship you today, may your Holy Word penetrate every aspect of our lives and cut asunder anything that is not of you. May your Holy word destroy the wicked deposits from the enemy camp that has been a hindrance in our walk with you. Change and transform us to your Divine nature in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
