Faith To Faith 8 March 2020 Devotional – Meet the Living Word, written by Kenneth Copeland
TODAY’S TOPIC: MEET THE LIVING WORD
SCRIPTURE: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged 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 WORD: 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.
Today: Faith To Faith 8 March 2020 Devotional
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 ministers there preaching 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.
Scripture Reading: Psalm 119:1-9 (KJV)

2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
