It's About Your Response to the Word (March 29th, 2019)

"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)

Our opening Scripture let's us know the power of God's Word. But, the Word only produces results for you when you believe it and act on it. Your faith-response is vital. For example, 2 Peter 1:3 says that God has given you all things that pertain to life and to godliness. This means that everything you could ever want, that's consistent with God's perfect will for you, is already yours in Christ.

So, your response should be, "Praise God! Health, prosperity, victory, and all other glorious provisions of the Gospel are my present-hour realities in Christ!" Responding to the Word is how you make it real in your personal life, and that's what faith is: the response of the human spirit to the Word of God.

(1 Corinthians 2:12)

"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God."

Faith is acting on these spiritual realities revealed to us by the Holy Spirit, accepting them as truth, and living accordingly.

(2 Corinthians 2:14)

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place."

This means that no matter what happens, you insist that you're triumphant always, and in all things. You stand your ground and maintain that you're a victory in Christ Jesus. You don't just think it, you affirm it!

God gave us His Word to live by, and to use in charting your course in victory. It's your responsibility to use the Word and to work the Word. The change you desire in your finances, health, and family would only come as a result of your response to the Word.

(Hebrews 13:5-6)

"...For He Himself has said... So we may boldly say..."

(2 Corinthians 4:13)

"...we also believe and therefore speak."

It's about your response to the Word: what you say on the basis of what He has said!


Blessed Father, how I love You! You've made me righteous and prosperous. You've made my life excellent and full of glory. Thank You for the power of Your Word in my life, which prevails and produces results in, and for me in all things, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
