Hebrews 4:12 says: "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Moffatt's translation of this verse reads, "For the logos of God is a living thing ..." The word "quick" actually means "alive, living." (James Moffatt translation 1913; once called "the original modern-language Bible.)
The Logos of God is a Living thing. But it will only come alive to you as you accept it and act upon it, which is faith. Faith is acting on the integrity of the Word. So we see that the first step is to accept and understand the integrity of God's Word. The Word is of foremost importance.
The Word Is God Speaking To Us
Sometimes folks think God hasn't spoken to them unless they have a message in tongues or prophecy. That's why we often get imbalanced with spiritual gifts, or, so-called spiritual gifts. We want something spectacular before we will believe that God has spoken to us.
THE WORD IS GOD SPEAKING TO US!
This is so simple that most people miss it and run around looking for a "word from da Lord." I have heard of false prophets charging for prophecies. Any Christian that would pay for a prophecy lacks understanding of the integrity of the Word. People often put heavy emphasis on gifts of the Spirit, but the Word of God is God speaking to us. The gifts of prophecy, tongues, and interpretation of tongues do not supersede the Word. The Word comes first. These inspirational vocal gifts are given to us to inspire us in line with the Word, but if they say something apart from the Word, it is not the Holy Spirit speaking. That person is just speaking from his or her own thinking. We must always judge these things in the light of God's Word.
Faith Accepts The Word At Face Value
There are those who try to read certain things into the Word because they want it to say what they believe. They are trying to fit the Word to their beliefs rather than fitting their beliefs to the Word (be careful here, most of us have done this). Some people try to overlook certain passages or explain them away. But we must accept it for what it says and walk in the light of it 100%.

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
