What is the most powerful force on earth? Scientists tell us the most powerful force on earth is the Nuclear Strong Force. The Nuclear Strong force is one of the four fundamental forces in nature—the other three are gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak force. As its name implies, the strong force is the strongest of these, and it’s simply a name for the force that binds together the fundamental particles of matter to form larger particles.

If you compare these various forces, you discover that electromagnetism is stronger than gravity. Electromagnetism is 1036 times or a trillion trillion trillion times more powerful than gravity. But the Nuclear Strong Force is 100 times more powerful than electromagnetism, clearly making it the most powerful natural force in the universe. 

But the truth is, the Nuclear Strong Force is not the most powerful force on earth. There are no forces on earth as powerful as the Word of God. 

“By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,

and by the breath of His mouth all their hosts.”

–Psalm 33:6

“…He spoke, and it was done; He commanded,

and it stood fast.”

–Psalm 33:9

The Word of God is so powerful that God only has to speak and the far reaches of the universe come into being! So, yes, there is a force stronger than the Nuclear Strong Force; it is the Word of God. It’s strong, not only in creation, but in its work in our hearts. 

Hebrews 4:12, “The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

The writer of Hebrews is saying that the Word of God is living and breathing, and actively working. In Hebrews 4:12, the Greek word for active is where we get our English word energy. The Scripture is alive and has energy, and with razor sharp precision it has the ability to pierce into man’s inner being.

In the next few blogs, we will examine together key verses from Psalm 19. There we will discover a series of truths that identify and express The Perfections of Scripture
