Receive His Life

Gloria Copeland
It is the spirit that quickeneth [or makes alive]; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The Word of God and its power to heal your body is more than just good information. It actually has Life in it! Jesus said so in John 6:63.

Every time you take the Word into your heart, believe it and act on it, that life of which Jesus spoke, the very Life of God Himself, is released in you. You may have read the healing scriptures over and over again. You may know them as well as you know your own name. Yet, every time you read them or hear them preached, they bring you a fresh dose of God’s healing power. Each time, they bring life to you and deliver God’s medicine to your flesh.

That’s because the Word is like a seed. Hebrews 4:12 (amp) says it is “alive and full of power—making it active, operative, energizing and effective….” It actually carries within it the power to fulfill itself!

When you planted the Word about the new birth in your heart, then believed and acted on it, that Word released within you the power to be born again. By the same token, when you plant the Word about healing in your heart, believe and act on it, that Word will release God’s healing power in you.

When you read the Bible, you’ll see that spiritual power has been affecting this physical world ever since time began. In fact, it was spiritual power released in the form of God’s Word that brought this natural world into existence in the first place. He spoke it into being.

It must become a revelation to you, that God’s Word is the force that originally brought into being everything you can see and touch—including your physical body. It will then be easy to believe that the Word is still capable of changing your body today. It makes perfect sense!

So get into the Word. Speak its life-giving force aloud over your body in faith…and receive your healing! Receive His Life!

Speak the Word

The Spirit quickens me. The words that Jesus speaks to me are spirit and life. (John 6:63)
