Victory By The Word – Pastor Chris
Thursday, November 9, 2017
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord (Colossians 3:16).
James 1:18 says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” 1 Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” Being a Christian, you must study and meditate on the Word, because your life came from the Word of God; you’re an offspring of the Word; therefore, you can only be sustained by the Word. Stay in the Word, for everything in life is sustained by its source.
Not to stay in the Word is to starve your spirit of the material it needs to survive, grow, and function normally. The development of your spirit is to the degree of how much of God’s Word you ingest. The more of God’s Word you receive into your spirit, the more your spirit is educated and built for victory and success.
Success in life isn’t dependent on the number of degrees you bagged in college; it’s in the amount of God’s Word you know and put to work! This is why you must know and live by the Word. Build your faith with the Word. The world today is plagued with all kinds of crises, economic problems, etc., and many are confused, wondering when the crises will end. But if you have the Word in you, you have nothing to fear.
God’s Word is alive and full of power; that means it’s active, operative and effective. Hence, it doesn’t matter what the case is, if you’d meditate on the Word, it’ll produce in you and for you the desired results. “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8). The Word in your spirit and in your mouth will make you a victor for life.
Dear heavenly Father, I’m fulfilled, knowing my roots are in your Word. Therefore, your Word is my daily meditation, morning, noon, and night. I walk in health, prosperity, victory, and success continually, because my faith is in the Word. Blessed be God!
