God’s Word is powerful. It is the spoken word of God and we must recognize what it can do in us and through us. Read Hebrews chapter 4.
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.
Hebrews 4:12 NASB
It is active, living, and it can absolutely pierce through all the “stuff” in our lives that gets in our way or distracts us from God. Do we spend time in God’s Word? Do we measure up our life next to the expectations that His Word sets? Like a surgeon’s knife, God’s Word can carve away the pieces of our lives that are not following Him.
