When The Impressions had a hit with that song, in 1965, it was supposed to be a symbol of the so-called growing social and political awareness. But I think Curtis didn’t realize his upbringing in the church was the driving force. I read how he figured that Gospel influence played a part. But I don’t think he understood what was going on.
God created everything with His thoughts and voice. So word power is yuge.
My recommendation is to tap into that power every day. Don’t let a day go by where you depend entirely on YOU. Because, you know what? YOU will let you down. Maybe not immediately. But definitely eventually. Self ishness leads to fear. And that brings to mind 2 important words God uses a lot. Fear Not.
In a world so full of evil people doing evil things, how could God expect us to fear not?
Because He gave us a whole book of words. And it’s often called The Word. Matter of fact, Jesus is often referred to as The Word in God’s Word. Are you picking up what I’m laying down?
Yeah, get outta your self and get on board the Bible train. Because that’s when you tap into the endless…
Power of the Word
So you’ve been thinking that you’ve got a whole lot to fear
And you keep asking, “What on earth am I doin’ here?”
Well I wouldn’t tell you it’s as gloomy as you’ve heard
You just need the power of the Word
I know you’ve heard that if at first you don’t succeed
Just keep on trying and you’re bound to fill the need
But you don’t believe all that stuff applies to you
And without the power what can you do
Well the power of the Word takes an ordinary bird
And it gives him songs to sing and wings to soar
With the power of the Word even when your vision’s blurred
All your dreams will be fulfilled forevermore
Numbers are crunching and seconds are ticking on
Your hopes are fading until you wonder where they’ve gone
But you wouldn’t worry that your life could be deterred
If you had the power of the Word
And if you’re asking, “What’s in it for me?”
Well, give up your soul and I think you will see….
