Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” Jeremiah 23:29
Whoever is empty of the word is open to defeat. God himself could not create anything without the Word. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” (Genesis 1:1-3). In John 1:1-3, we are told that the Word did everything. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” Nothing was made without the Word. Even God needed the Word. Why then do we feel we can make progress in life or turn our circumstances around without the Word of God?
I John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” It takes faith to walk in victory, but how does faith come? “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17). Without the word in you, you are open to attacks. It is the Word you declare in your prayer that the Angels act on, not how much you cry and display emotions. When the tempter came to Jesus in Matthew 4, Jesus always defeated him with ‘it is written’. What would have happened if Jesus did not know the scriptures? Even though He is the Word made flesh, He was an ardent studier of the written word. Remember when His parents forgot Him in the temple at age 12 and He was listening to teachers and asking questions. You need that type of hunger for the Word if you will walk in victory over life’s circumstances. It is not the open bible under your pillow that sends witches away but the one you have downloaded into your spirit.
Don’t let any day pass without spending quality time in studying the Word. Therein lies your victory.
SAY THIS PRAYER
O Lord, let the hunger for the Word overtake me like fire in my bones. Grant me quick understanding of Your Word. Amen!
I curse every distraction and word-study weakness in your life in Jesus name!
After listening to Pastor Larry’s radio broadcast, I made up my mind to attend the next service. When I came, I heard many testimonies from people who had used the communion and the anointing oil. I got both of them. When I got home, I met my son in a critical health condition. I used both of them on him and by morning, he was up on his feet, totally whole. Praise God!
