For as he (a man) thinketh in his heart, so is he… (Proverbs 23:7).
Change is something we all want, should have, and continually crave; change
from glory to glory. Change, whether positive or negative, results from the
words you pay attention to, and the thoughts they stir up in your heart. The Lord Jesus
taught His disciples to hear and think right. In Mark 4:24, He said, “…Take heed what ye
hear….” Then in Luke 8:18, He said, “Take heed therefore how ye hear….”
How you hear is as important as what you hear, because how you hear often
determines your response and attitude, as well as the ability to appropriate the power of
the words that come to you. Words make or mar. Our lives are influenced by words; the
atmosphere in your home depends on the words that are spoken therein. Your relationships
are built on words. Our lives are so dependent on words that, not only do they affect our
attitudes, they also affect our health and living conditions.
Whether or not you’re living in faith or in fear is a function of what you hear. Faith
comes by hearing God’s Word. God’s Word contains positive information that bolsters faith,
while fear comes through negative information. Many today have become faint-hearted from
listening to media reports on the deplorable state of the world’s economy. If only they’d turn
their attention to the Lord and His infallible Word!
Job 22:29 says when men are cast down, then you shall say there’s lifting up. You’re
in the world, but not of the world. Your prosperity and success are independent of the
vagaries of nature, economics, and economies of this world. Have this consciousness. Think like a victor. Live as a champion. 1 John 4:4 says, “Ye are of God, little children, and
have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the
Believe and accept the integrity of God’s Word. Think the Word-way. God has given
you His Word as the veritable agent to change and transform your life from glory to glory:
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are
changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”
(2 Corinthians 3:18).
The Word is growing mightily and prevailing in me; I’m making progress by the
Word, heaping up success upon success. There’s prosperity, joy and increase in my
life, and Christ is exalted and glorified in me today, in the Name of Jesus! Amen.
