The Word In Your Spirit
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17).
2 Corinthians 10: 3 says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh.” We’re not into a physical battle; it’s spiritual, and our weapon is the Word of God; the sword of the Spirit. As you release God’s Word—the rhema of God—you’re getting on the offensive in the realm of the spirit; power is released that shatters the enemy. This is the reason for meditation.
God’s Word is powerful in your mouth, after meditation—voracious meditation. During this kind of meditation, your whole attention is on the Word; you allow no distraction whatsoever. This is what makes the difference between someone that’s quoting scriptures from the head and someone that’s quoting scriptures because it has become resident inside him. This was what distinguished David from the rest of the Israelites. They were all circumcised and knew about the covenant, but they trembled before Goliath. None of them could face the giant.
But when David showed up, he wondered why everybody was afraid of Goliath and said, “…who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (1 Samuel 17:26). He was saying, “We’re circumcised, and by circumcision, we’re in league with God. But this guy is uncircumcised; he doesn’t have God on his side!” The circumcision meant something to David that others didn’t know about.
That’s what happens when the Word is in your spirit. Jesus said out of your belly shall flow rivers— gushers, floods—of living water (John 7:38). Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly….” Become voracious in your study of, and meditation on the Word. Have the Word in your heart and in your mouth; it’ll make you a wonder and give you the winning mentality. Praise God!
From my innermost being flow gushers of living water. As I meditate and receive the Word gladly into my spirit, it brings forth righteousness, wisdom, and revelation, prosperity, victory, and abundance. Praise God!
