We are not used to words having power. We make promises we can’t keep. People can tell us we’re beautiful, but their words don’t make it so. Words from God have real power. In the beginning he declared “Let there be light” and there was light! His Word continues to show real power to change our hearts and lives, to command the forces of this world and even to rebuff the powers of evil. Our worship focuses on the power God’s Word has to overcome evil no matter what form it takes.
