The writer of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 4:12,13:”For the WORD OF GOD is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and ABLE TO JUDGE THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTIONS OF THE HEART. And there is no creature hidden from His SIGHT, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”
The Word of God IS Jesus Christ, when He speaks to you it cuts you to the bone. It unsettles you, it brings you on your knees, it disrupts your life, it makes you realize that you are NOTHING, that you are in the presence of the living God. “Man shall not live from bread alone but from every WORD that proceeds from the MOUTH OF GOD.” That is for those who LISTEN, who TAKE HEED AND and who FEAR God.
Many people do not fear God. They apply the scriptures to their liking and they live as THEY please but they don’t know God. When God speaks to you IT CUTS YOU, IT DISRUPTS YOU, IT DESTROYS YOU but it builds you into that which God wants you to be. Most believers do not know God. They do not know His voice. They do not follow Him.
Jesus said:”My sheep LISTEN to My voice and they FOLLOW Me.” Most believers do not LISTEN to Jesus because they do not know His voice. They are not His sheep. They do not know the ONE with whom they have to do but we will all stand before His throne. If we do not recognize and KNOW His voice right now, if we do not FEAR Him and OBEY Him it will be a fateful day when we stand before Him and He says:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” Then those words will cut you for ever and for eternity. It is better to LISTEN to Jesus RIGHT NOW, to go on your knees and to seek Him, to say:”Speak Lord, Your servant is LISTENING.”
Are you LISTENING to the words of Jesus? Are those words piercing you, cutting you, disrupting your life, and sending you where He wants to? Are those words directing you and using you as an instrument for the Kingdom of God or are you following after your own pleasure. Do you HEAR the Word of God?
May Jesus bless you.
