WORD-POWER

 
"Take heed, therefore, how you hear." —Luke 8:18
 

God's word will not be hidden (Lk 8:17). You can be a cloud obscuring the light of God's word, but the light will continue to shine (see Ps 119:105), and you will be blown away.

God's word is irresistible (Jdt 16:14) for some people. While some resist God's word, there are always others who accept it. It is always living and effective (Heb 4:12). God's word always achieves the end for which it was sent (Is 55:11).

God's word is unstoppable. "There is no chaining the word of God!" (2 Tm 2:9) Jesus, the Word of God, leads an unstoppable, victorious army (Rv 19:13ff).

God's word is indestructible. Though heaven and earth pass away, God's word will never pass away (Lk 21:33). It is "an indestructible seed...the living and enduring word of God" (1 Pt 1:23).

God's word is the teaching of the Church in her divine traditions, especially in the Bible. Put this word on the lampstand of your life (Lk 8:16). Share God's word. "When much has been given a man, much will be required of him" (Lk 12:48). "I charge you to preach the word, to stay with this task whether convenient or inconvenient" (2 Tm 4:2).

 
Prayer: Father, may I read and share Your word daily.
Promise: "Whoever, therefore, among you belongs to any part of His people, let him go up, and may his God be with him!" —Ezr 1:3
Praise: The Norton's hired workmen to replace their roof. When the roof was removed, a sudden, violent rainstorm soaked the area. The workmen, upon seeing the storm approaching, dropped to their knees and prayed the rosary. The storm drenched the surrounding area, but a circle of sunshine surrounded the house and kept it dry.
 
 
 
Nihil obstat: Reverend Robert L. Hagedorn, February 1, 1997
Imprimatur: †Most Reverend Carl K. Moeddel, Vicar General and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, February 4, 1997
 
The Nihil obstat and Imprimatur are a declaration that a book or pamphlet is considered to be free from doctrinal or moral error. It is not implied that those who have granted the Nihil obstat and Imprimatur agree with the contents, opinions, or statements expressed.
