In my days of following the LORD and growing into His likeness, there are few words that have truly impacted my life and have become a part of “THE WAY THAT I OPERATE.”
Truly, they have been few and far between. Those words are those that ring in my thought-life and have changed me. These words have become flesh in my life. I know that you know the kind of words that I am talking about. You can’t forget them!
They are the ones that God has truly revealed to you. You hardly remember who spoke them but they took a hold of your life and changed the way that you thought forever.
Those are the words that when all else passes away that will remain. You see, God is shaking everything else that can be shaken so that those things that will remain, will remain.
It is what makes you more like Jesus and what is built on the rock when the wind blows and the storms of life come. Yeh, those are the ones… the words that Satan cannot shake you off of and you would go down into your grave believing!
The LORD asked me once if I truly believed what I was saying to someone and I had to think for a moment and truly say I was not sure because I had only learned them from what someone else had said. He then said “You need to get in the Word and find out what you truly believe, because this will be what you can not be shaken off of and the devil will not be able to talk you out of.”
This is the word that you will step out of the boat on and will face a den of Lions with!
These are the words that you have been tried in and know that they work and now you can stand and serve it to others without wavering.
It has become a part of you and you of it! It is the portion that you will serve to a dying world and there will be a great anointing on it!
Yep, these are the words that I am talking about. They are now who you are and who you have become. They are THE WORD MADE FLESH IN YOUR LIFE!
“Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:47-49.
