No Rhema From God Is Void Of Power

“…For no word from God shall be void of power” (Luke 1:37 ASV).

When the Bible says “no word from God shall be void of power,” it’s actually referring to the rhema-word from God and not the logos. Logos is the revealed Word of God that expresses His thoughts, character, plans, purposes and personality. But rhema is the active word from God, to a specific person, for a specific purpose, at a specific time. So, put in the right context, the Scripture above denotes “No rhema from God shall be void of power.” In other words, every rhema-word you receive from God has power. When you need to effect changes at your work place, in your family, your finances or your physical body, the logos of God will not work; you need rhema. The rhema of God is the sword of the Spirit by which you prevail against the adversary. Until God’s Word becomes rhema to you, it will not change your situation. This is the reason some people wonder why they quote Scriptures in the face of adversity and nothing happens. Things don’t change because they fail to realize that it’s not just the quoting of Scripture that produces result. It’s receiving rhema from that Scripture you’re quoting that works. You make war by rhema. That’s what you use to cut the devil down and cause him to bow before you. So, when you’re facing challenges, begin to meditate on God’s Word that addresses your peculiar situation. Keep talking the Word until it becomes rhema to you. Remember, no rhema from God is void of power; and as a child of God, you can receive rhema. Jesus said, “He that is of God heareth God’s words:…” (John 8:47); in other words, he receives God’s rhema. Therefore, when you’re facing challenges, charge your spirit by speaking in other tongues and declaring God’s Word. That way, your spirit will be fine-tuned to God’s frequency and you’ll receive rhema.

Meditate For Rhema

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8).

Sometime in 1980, this Scripture came to me as rhema. I was sitting on a chair in a field, looking to heaven and talking to God. Then He spoke to me from this verse and I got a hold of it, and for many years from that time, it was my best portion of the Bible because it came to my spirit as rhema from God. The Hebrew word translated “meditate” in Joshua 1:8 is “hagah” and it means “to ruminate, to mutter, to speak of something under your voice.” This means you’re saying something over and over again to yourself. The idea of meditation we get from the Bible is completely different from what is taught in the world. If you want the Word to produce results for you, you can’t hold your Bible at arms length, leafing through it like a newspaper, with your glasses falling over your nose. Meditation, as taught in the Word of God, means taking a Scripture and ruminating over it, pondering upon it, and muttering it to yourself continuously. You may have seen those Jews standing by the wailing wall of Jerusalem, nodding their heads continuously as they mutter the Scriptures to themselves. What they’re doing is meditating. God expects us to do the same—meditate on the Scriptures. You sit somewhere all by yourself and continuously mutter Scriptures to yourself. God says you must do this continually if you want to see prosperity and success. You must talk the Word! When you act like the Bible says you should, yours won’t always be the cool, calm, quiet and passive Christianity. In fact, sometimes, some folks will think you’re out of your mind! God wants you to speak His Word and meditate on it because He knows that as you do, it will get into your spirit and become personal to you. It’ll become rhema to you, which is God’s specific Word to you, at a specific time, for a specific purpose, and it will accomplish the desired purpose in your life.

Let The Word of God Cleanse You

“And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11).

Sanctification simply is a separation from the world unto God, and it is a two-fold experience. It means to be separated from the world and separated unto God. This two-fold experience can be likened to what happens to someone who falls into a muddy pit. First he needs to be brought out of the pit. So we get him out of the mud. This is the first part of sanctification. Since a lot of the mud has rubbed on his body, he needs to be cleaned up. Now, we get the mud out of him. This is the second part of sanctification. Now the first part of sanctification, which is getting you out of the world, is instantaneous. This happens the moment you give your life to Christ. You’re immediately separated from the world unto God. Getting the world out of you, which is the second aspect of sanctification, is the renewing of your mind, and it is done progressively by the Word of God. The Word of God is the cleansing agent. Because you’ve been in the world, you relate with people and things in the world around you, you get a lot of stains on you through watching and listening to the wrong things. As a result, you may think the wrong thoughts and even act the wrong way at times. However, the Lord Jesus said, “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). The Word of God continually washes you, cleanses you, and takes all that ‘mud’ out of your life. God wants you to be clean in your life. He’s already brought you out of the world, but He also wants to get the world out of you. In other words, He wants you to renew your mind so you don’t think and act like the rest of the world. God has already cleansed you of the mess you couldn’t otherwise take care of, but now He tells you, “Hey, you get rid of the wrong stuff in your life!” Apply His Word by studying and meditating on it. As you do this, God’s Word will affect your whole being. You can cleanse yourself through the Word and stay pure in Him today and always.

I declare that I’m in Christ, born again and full of the Holy Spirit. He has my heart! I have the life and nature of God in my heart. There’s a change in my heart; a transformation inside. I experience transformation and glory in my soul and body as a result of the impact and influence of the life and nature of God in my spirit. The Kingdom of God is set up in my heart. The Holy Spirit finds expression in my heart, dispensing His love through me. Out of the good treasures of my heart, I bring forth good. I’m mightily blessed by the Holy Spirit. I’m a life-giver. Thank You dear Father, for setting up your Kingdom in my heart. With my heart, I envision and apprehend the realities of the Gospel and of our Kingdom-life. I pray for the unsaved around the world, that their hearts be open to receive the Gospel, and be saved; that your power for salvation will mantle their hearts even now, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Hallelujah!

SEPTEMBER 15, 2020: HE’S WITH ME AND IN ME!

I declare that the Holy Spirit is my comforter, helper, teacher, guide, standby, counsellor and advocate. He’s with me and in me; therefore, I can never be in the dark or miss my way in life. He lives in my heart and abides with me forever. I’m conscious of His presence in my life. Irrespective of what I may face in my life, divinity is at work in me! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I’m manifesting Christ; Christ in me, the hope of glory! Heaven is in me; The fullness of the Godhead is fully tabernacled in me, and expressed through me! Thank You dear Father, for the great honour and blessing of having Christ live in me by the Holy Spirit; by virtue of His indwelling and abiding presence, I’m infused with divine energy and supernatural wisdom to do the will of God, and live triumphantly over the devices of the evil one and the corrupting influences in this world. Hallelujah!
