KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:63 KJV “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
God’s word is the supreme principle or law that rules this world. Everything, in this life including finance, security, health, physical matter and what have you, are all subjected to the rule of God’s word.
It is your submission to it which the bible calls faith that brings all of its conquering effect into your lives.
I will give the following illustration to explain my point.
I listened to the testimony of a lady. She travelled in a public transport called ” trotro” in Ghana, with other passengers from one part of town to another. She shared the gospel to her fellow passengers who sat around her. On their way, certain armed robbers stopped them and demanded everyone to get out of the bus. Every passenger frightfully got out. She reasoned that if I have been sharing the word with these people, I should demonstrate my faith in what I have been sharing. She refused to get down, but started praying in tongues. The robbers got to her and said are you not coming down, what do you think you are? They pointed the gun at her, pulled the trigger and nothing happened. They both tried their weapons and all failed to shoot. They instantly ran away.
The word has power to protect, yet until you trust in it you will not experience that power.
Jesus said in Matt 4:4 that man should not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceed from the mouth of God.
To live on the word is to cast your life on the word.
The lady in the story cast her life on the word and indeed she was protected. The word is Spirit and life.
The word is a person, and only requires your absolute trust to have it subject every other opposing power to its rule. Sicknesses arrogantly torments men, yet the word is ready to mesmerise sicknesses for us, if we would be prepared to submit to what it says. What is it in this life that makes a mess of men? Is it poverty, danger, robbery, what is it, the ruler of all principles in this life is the word? Mix the word with faith and you can have whatever it talks about. Hebrews 4:2 KJV” For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Dear one, stop depending on your, senses reason, strength or the flesh of any kind. The flesh profits nothing. Place your total confidence in the word and you would have real meaning as well as reigning over the evil forces that is making humans unnecessarily miserable.
MAN WAS CREATED AS THE KING OF GOD’S CREATION, he lost his kingship by depending on the flesh, IT IS GOING BACK TO THE WORD THAT WOULD ENTHRONE HIM AS THE KING OF CREATION AGAIN.
THOUGHT: SUBMISSION TO GOD’S WORD IS YOUR DISTANCE AWAY FROM YOUR KINGSHIP IN THIS LIFE
Hebrews 4:3 KJV” For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.”
Hebrews 4:12 KJV” For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.”
