Hebrews 4:12 “For the Word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”
When God speaks, He speaks always as One with authority. His words are decrees. Every word that is spoken is purposeful, so He only says what He means. He never lies. That’s why He can be trusted and relied on. He doesn’t need to “promise” because when He tells you He will do something, it’s as good as done. Because He is All-mighty, His words are powerful. They exert a force. They are effectual in the results desired.
The verse also says His Word is sharper than any 2-edged sword which is very sharp. Yet God’s word is even sharper because it can divide or make a distinction between things we generally think of as being indistinguishable. For example, where is the line between a soul and a spirit? What is the difference between a person’s thoughts and their intent?
God’s word is able to penetrate to the heart of a person and cause a change. That’s how incredibly amazingly effective and powerful God’s Word is! It gets the job done.
