[The Glory Unveiled]
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces? ( Jeremiah 23:29 )
The word of God is considered in the scripture above as analogous to fire and hammer. The properties of hammer and fire tell very much about what the word of God can do in and about our lives. Fire leaks up anything it comes into contact with. It burns, it heats up, it cooks, it refines, it transforms. Without fire, there are so many things that cannot be done likewise its presence brings about events and happenings which could not be undone. And then we see hammer as a tool that breaks, bends, crushes, transforms, reshapes, grinds and destroys. If we reflect carefully, we will see that both fire and hammer have good and negative properties. The word of God is the power of God unto us for salvation, deliverance, Sanctification, empowerment, righteousness among others. The same word of God brings condemnation to anyone who does not believe. Jesus says he does not condemn but the word he speaks will condemn those who reject His word (see John 12:48). So we are either condemned or justified by the word of God we have become one with. There is power in the word for building and pulling down, setting up and crushing. Let us use the word, skillfully.
Prayer_Bead: Mighty Ruler, King of Kings, God of infallible speakings, every and anything that is inconsistent with your word in my life, let the hammer of your word break it. Let the fire of your word consume and refine my understanding.
