The Word of God

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Isaiah 55:11
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

Genesis 1:3
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

God does nothing apart from His word. The word of God exists with God. God’s word is God! God’s word is God’s will, it not only accomplishes God’s will but it is the complete expression of God’s divine will and purpose. God’s word is unstoppable and cannot be thwarted. Because the Word of God is actually a person, God’s son Jesus Christ, all of the attributes that pertain to God himself, pertain to his word.

God’s word is:

  • Eternal – Psalms 119:89 Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
  • Pure – Psalms 119:140 Your word is very pure; Therefore Your servant loves it.
  • Right – Psalms 119:172 My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments are right.
  • True – Psalms 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
  • Imparts Wisdom and Revelation – Psalms 119:130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

Psalm 19 sums it up very well,

Psalm 19:7-9
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
