Today’s devotional is from Kenneth Copeland.
God’s success formula begins with keeping His Word in your mouth. Talk God’s Word. God gave Israel these instructions,
“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).
God told Israel to talk His Word when they sat down, when they walked, when they laid down and when they rose up. That is all the time!
How could that be possible? Jesus said that out of the abundance of a man’s heart his mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34). The words you put in yourself are the words that come out. What words do you see and listen to most of the time—television, radio, newspapers, novels or God’s Word? Listen to yourself talk and you will know what is in you in abundance. If you are talking doubt, fear and sickness, that is what is in you in abundance. Your source of information must be changed!
The stream of things in this world is negative. Unless you take action against the world order with the Word of God, your mouth will speak from experience, circumstance and tradition.
You receive in this life just what you say with your mouth. The word in your mouth is your faith speaking. The words you speak are what you believe.
“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew 12:34).
The mouth speaks according to what you put in your heart.
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things” (verse 35).
Put God’s Word into your heart and you will speak God’s Word with your mouth. God’s Word in your mouth will cause good things to happen in your life.
You put God’s Word into your heart by meditation in His Word. Meditation in God’s Word is a necessity in God’s success formula. Meditation is more than just reading. Meditation is fixing your mind on the Word so that you do all that is written therein. You will gain revelation and insight into the Word that you never could gain by only hearing.
In meditating the Word, you are applying that Word to yourself personally. You are allowing the Holy Spirit to make God’s Word a reality in your heart. Acting on God’s Word guarantees success.
In His Word you will find God’s answer to every problem common to man. For every evil Satan can throw at mankind, our Father has provided the Word to overcome that evil. Prosperity and good success are yours through God’s Word.
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7).
