The word of God is more powerful than we fully understand or comprehend. When God speaks, things happen and real changes take place. God said His word is like a fire. His word contains enough heat to melt even the hardest of hearts. His word is hot enough to burn away the cost of sin on His people. God's word carries enough energy to power miracles and create something from nothing. God also said His word is like a hammer that breaks the rock to pieces. The right word from God can shatter even the most impregnable stronghold that is set in opposition to Him. It casts down every argument and high thing that prevents people from knowing God. If you want your faith to be truly effective, anchor it in God's word. What people say about God, and their own personal experience can encourage your faith. But you must take what you believe back to God's word and place your faith there because that's where the power is found. Testimonies are good, but only as a means to strengthen your faith, not as a substitute for God's word. Find a promise in God's word that speaks to your situation and lock your faith to that word. Then, once your faith is established on that firm foundation allow the testimonies of others to build your faith. That's the path to see miracles happen in your own life.
“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?"— Jeremiah 23:29 (NKJV)
