For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
When we speak and pray the word, we are coming into agreement with God, and His power is released to answer our prayers; and by doing so we strengthen the expression of our prayer. As we pray the word, we learn who God is, and our true identity, that is who God created us to be, who God says I am. When living in the fullness of our true identity in Christ, we will then experience all that God has intended for us.
