MEET THE LIVING WORD

Apr 12, 2018 || A Devotional 

by Kenneth Copeland

“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.” Hebrews 4:12

The living Word of Almighty God is the only power strong enough to discipline your flesh. It’s the only power that can cause you to think, look, talk and act like a born-again man.

When I became a Christian, I was dominated by a horrible smoking habit. I tried to quit every way I could think of but nothing worked. After months of struggling and failing, I decided to attend some meetings in Hilton Sutton’s church in Houston, Texas. Before I went into those meetings, I tucked my cigarettes above the sun visor in my car and left them there.

Up to that time, I hadn’t learned much of anything about the Word and had never been exposed to the power of God. So when I began to hear those preachers there preach under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, it got my attention. I was caught up in the living Word. My desires changed. All I wanted was more of God. For the first time in my life, the Scriptures came alive.

When those meetings ended and I started driving back home, I found those old, stale cigarettes tucked up in my sun visor and realized I hadn’t even missed them.

What happened? The Word separated me from the desire to smoke. The Word empowered me to discipline this flesh of mine. When I saw Jesus in the Word and under the anointing of Almighty God, I was totally set free, not only of the habit but of the desire!

Get caught up in the living Word today and discover the power that can set you forever free.
