“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.”(Hebrews 4:12) Have you ever been reading the Bible and have a Scripture “jump off the page” or stand out to you personally? You had been praying and seeking the Lord for an answer, and suddenly, God revealed the answer through His Word. When you are a believer, the Holy Spirit can “highlight” or bring to mind a verse or verses that speak right into your situation and suddenly those passages resonate in your heart and bring clarity instead of confusion. You may also hear the same verse spoken several times in the span of a day or a week and receive confirmation or a much needed answer. That is a reason that the Bible is called “living and active”. In addition, you may have also read a verse multiple times throughout your life, but when you read it again, the passage now applies to your particular situation and speaks to you directly. The verse(s) “come to life” and bring peace, hope, and encouragement to your heart
