I heard those good words, or a paraphrase of them, sung on the radio, a female voice, many long years before I came to know the Lord God Almighty in a personal relationship of by and through Jesus Christ His Son. I was captured - my heart was stirred - I was stopped in my tracks. I never forgot that moment. When I came upon these very words in God's Book many year's later, I understood the stopping power of that song, that woman's voice - it wasn't her, it was God singing. I believe now that it was Maria Muldaur singing; I've just ordered the album, Sweet Harmony, hoping to hear it all anew all over again! I've also researched and discovered that the song is inspired by a sermon-song of the Reverend C.L. Franklin.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.His Word is Life, and we are blessed to speak it!
Words of wisdom bump.
