This series has the most emotional content of any we have recorded to date. Each of the precious women around the table for this series was beautifully vulnerable and available for God’s Word to work in them both now and in the past. They shared stories about how God’s Word has instructed and informed, healed and helped them through their faith journey. In the end, that’s the Power of God’s Word.
Beyond that, the homework lessons from this series are also powerful. We are exploring the possibilities that can be opened to us when we take hold of God’s Word in the ways He intended. We are solidly founded in scripture, using that to form our principles for discussion, specifically 2 Timothy 3:16 and Hebrews 4:12. We would encourage memorizing both of those passages.
In light of the content of part four particularly, it’s important to reiterate God’s promise from Isaiah 55:10-11 “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth; It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” God’s Word is always powerful, but sometimes in ways we may not get to see or understand. In part four we are reminded that even when we speak God’s word, with His purpose, it may not look like it’s turning out okay. Illness sometimes overtakes, divorce sometimes wins out, people sometimes keep making the choices we wish they wouldn’t.
Just trust that God’s Word will not return empty but will accomplish what He desires and will achieve the purpose for which HE sends it. 1 Corinthians 13:12 “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.” (NLT)
