So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.
God’s Word will only help you to the degree that you hear, receive, and act upon it. God’s Word spoken brought into existence everything we see. There is nothing more powerful than the Word of God. His Word is a prevailing force. The word prevail means to prove more powerful than any opposing force, to be victorious.
Think about how powerful God’s Word is. It brought all things into existence. In the scripture above we see that the Word continued to grow mightily and prevail over whatever they came up against. This was a result of the disciples teaching the people what God’s Word said. The more that Word grew and came alive in the hearts of those who heard it, the more that Word prevailed in and through their lives.
To get God’s Word in our hearts we must hear it, speak it, meditate on it, and live it. For those who do this prevailing force, the Word of God, will work in and through your life proving itself more powerful than any opposing force. It will help you to live a victorious life, for you shall know the truth, and that truth shall set you free.
