Heart to Heart | January 2014
//Kenneth W. Hagin
We sometimes forget that Jesus lived as a man. He had emotions; He had desires. The Word of God says that He endured everything—every temptation—that man would ever endure. And He overcame!
How did Jesus overcome? By quoting the Word of God. He told the devil, "It is written . . ." (Matt. 4:4).
Has the enemy been attacking you? Perhaps you've been going through some things. You need to understand that your answer lies in the spoken Word of God.
There is not a situation, problem, trial, or difficulty that can come along that the Word of God spoken out of your mouth will not take care of. Hebrews 4:12 says, "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword" (NKJV). Weymouth's translation says, "For God's Message is full of life and power."
So many times when we face difficulties and problems, we immediately speak what we see in the natural rather than speaking what the Word says. We need to be so full of the Word of God that when trouble pokes us or life puts the squeeze on us, we immediately say, "No weapon formed against me will prosper. I'm healed; I'm whole. All of my needs are met!"
You see, the Word of God in you and spoken out of your mouth will set the power of God loose around you. It will bring you healing and deliverance. It will bring you a full supply and protect you in time of danger. It will revitalize, empower, and strengthen you!
I don't care what you're facing in this new year, or what dilemma you're in. If you'll learn to live by the spoken Word of God and keep speaking it, things will change!
We've put together a wonderful magazine for you this month to help you get the new year started off right. My article on page 16 will help you see yourself as the giant you really are. And dad's article on page 9 will show you how to always make right decisions. I believe this year can be your very best! Keep speaking God's Word.
