“…I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Hebrews 8:10

When King Nebuchadnezzar had signed the decree that anyone who didn’t worship the gold image he had set up would be cast into the fiery furnace, everybody in the entire kingdom became very fearful, except three of God’s people: Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. This life-threatening situation didn’t shake the faith of the three god-fearing men because of the Word of God in their heart.

 

The Word of God says, “…When you pass through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.”

(Isaiah 43:2) Although they were not saved instantly from the fiery furnace, it was the Word of God in their hearts that

 turned the fiery furnace into ice cold. The three men were walking freely inside the fiery furnace along with the Son of God.

This sounds interesting to everyone but this doesn’t just happen. It is not all about the Word of God in our lips – I mean, when we begin to search the Bible for a Scripture that suits our situation. We should not rely on bits and pieces of the Bible but take the Word of God to heart by meditating on it, asking the Holy Spirit to help us. The Word of God must first take residence within us, because at the time we need it most, the Holy Spirit can only bring to remembrance the Word of God that is already lodged in our heart. With the Word of God in your heart, you don’t need to make up words because God says, “I will put My Word in your mouth,” just as He did for Jeremiah, Moses, Daniel, Peter, Paul. That is the promise Jesus gave His disciples before leaving them, “…do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Luke 12:11-12

 

The living Word in the lips of Daniel turned the lions into pets.

The living Word in the lips of Jesus prevailed over the law of nature. (Mark 4:36-41)

If you speak God’s word over your situation you have released your faith and brought God’s power on the scene.

In your life battle, always keep it at the forefront of your mind that it is not your word that satan fears but satan fears the Word of God in your heart, because it is only then that it becomes effective.

THE PILOT IN COMMAND

“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”

THE MOST PRECIOUS THING

“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”

GOD’S APPOINTMENT IN THE WILDERNESS

“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
