Let the Word Change Things

Kenneth Copeland
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick [alive!], 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.

If you’re in a fix of a situation today, I have good news. You don’t have to do a thing about it—except abide in the Word. The Word can change everything.

You see, the Word of God is alive. It will go into the very marrow of your bones. It will go into your mind, your will and your emotions and change them. It will go into your spirit and get you born again.

When you spend time meditating on that Word—when you abide in it—it will begin to change your thinking. Then it will convert your way of living and turn you around. It will bring your body into health. It will make your mind sound. It will make you prosperous. It literally has the power of God within it!

Although we work and put forth effort to learn that Word, to spend time in it, speak it and obey it—it is actually the Word itself that brings about the changes in our lives. That’s what the writer of Hebrews means when he said we “labour therefore to enter into that rest.”

We rest on the Word, knowing it will accomplish what God has promised.

Some believers wear themselves out trying to make the Word of God come to pass. But that’s not our job! Our job is not to make things happen. Our job is to let the Word abide in us. Our job is to abide in Jesus. Our job is to replace our thoughts with His thoughts—to speak and act in line with His Word.

But it is God Who performs it. He’s the One Who will cause His promises to become a living, manifested reality in your life.

What’s more, He can do it right in the midst of the worst trouble the world has ever seen. He can do it in the midst of the worst trouble you may find yourself. He can prosper you in the midst of famine. He can heal you in the midst of plagues. He can keep you safe when danger is on every hand. In fact, He can—and will—give you anything you ask, IF you’re abiding in Him and His Word is abiding in you. In this position you are always asking according to His will. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him” (1 John 5:14-15).

So let not your heart be troubled! Just set your heart on Jesus. Just let the Word of God answer the situation…and you’ll make it through in the glorious victory of God.

Speak the Word

The Word of God is alive and powerful, therefore I can enter into rest. (Hebrews 4:11-12)
