Power of the Word

Luke 4:32 "And they were amazed at His teaching, for His word was with authority and ability and weight and power."
Do you know the sensation of being in the presence of good teaching/preaching from God's Word?  His spiritual searchlight seems to look within our hearts and expose weakness, reinforce strength and touch us where we were unaware we needed to be touched or previously unwilling to be reached.  We resonate with the Truth as we hear it spoken and taught.  I think we were designed to vibrate at the frequency of truth and when we are in its presence we know we are being tuned properly.  When truth washes over us and then finds entrance to our hearts we are moved to agreement and alignment and prompted to action.  Our spirit looks for leadership and recognizes the proper authority of God in His Word of truth.  And so we bow before the King of Truth, the Word made flesh and surrender to the authority He alone deserves.  This may have been how it felt to be in the presence of Jesus as He ministered around Galilee so long ago...and as He speaks today wherever you are.

  1. The "earnest" within us (2 Cor. 1:22) is like a tuning fork that allows us to resinate with His touch.
