POWER OF THE WORD
The relevance of the word of God and the power it wields cannot be overstated (Hebrew 4:12). It has the power to break the strongest cord of sin, heal incurable diseases and gives hope in the most hopeless situation. In fact, the possibilities of the word are endless. The word of God is the shield of every believer and a strong pillar of our Christian faith. It is the heavenly pilgrims staff and compass in the wilderness of life.
The word is also crucial to every success story. Obedience to the word guarantees success while disobedience and disregard for it spells doom. (Joshua1:8). More so, the word is powerful enough to keep you from stumbling in your Christian walk (Psalm 119:105).

(John 6:63). To experience the power of the word therefore you must
