I have you and all our Partners on my heart this morning.
So much is happening around us, both in the spirit realm and in the natural. In the natural, things look so dire because of all the strife and division the devil has going on. James, by the Holy Spirit, said in chapter 3, verses 14-16:
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
In Mark 3:24-25, Jesus said it like this:
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
That shows you exactly what satan is trying to do. That’s always what he tries to do—whether in your own life and family, or in your church. But especially in your church. The spirit of strife and division is always there, lurking and looking for an opening—a way in, a place! Never, ever let your love guard down!
Let’s look at Ephesians 4:22-27, in The Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
22 Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;
23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude],
24 And (you) put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.
25 Therefore, rejecting all falsity and being done now with it, let everyone express the truth with his neighbor, for we are all parts of one body and members one of another.
26 When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down.
27 Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity to him].
Give him no place!
Strife is so dangerous! It’s like having a room full of rattlesnakes and trying to walk through them without being bitten. You can’t! If the United States didn’t have a covenant with Jesus, it would be doomed. This is the only nation in history that was formed by people who loved God, for the purpose of being free to worship Him—and He will NEVER forget it!
Now, let’s talk about the spiritual realm.
Oh my, my, my! THE GLORY’S HERE! The healing anointing and the anointing for financial increase are rising like a mighty ocean tide. It cannot be stopped! It’s here. Take it by faith! Faith for salvation, faith for healing and faith for finances are the same faith. You don’t need great, huge faith for some great, huge problem.
“But Brother Copeland, my faith just isn’t big enough for what I’m facing.”
Oh, yes it is!
You’ve already believed for and received the greatest miracle there is—THE RE-CREATION OF YOUR SPIRIT BEING! The complete and total change of your very nature! That’s HUGE! However, you can strengthen your faith by hearing—and hearing by THE WORD of GOD.
Think about this now, and say it out loud, according to what Jesus said in Mark 11:22: “Have faith in GOD!” The center column reference says, “HAVE THE FAITH OF GOD!” Can you see that? That’s God’s faith in your spirit, or in your heart, RIGHT NOW!
Say it: “I HAVE GOD’S FAITH IN ME, RIGHT NOW!”
You don’t need any more faith, or any bigger faith. THERE IS NO BIGGER faith than that! It just needs to be fed—every day! Get in The WORD and stay there. That’s where the power is. You MUST at least tithe your time—that’s only 2.4 hours a day—or at least your awake hours of 1.2 hours. That’s only one CD. This is far more important than anything on the news, or some silly TV program—which, by the way, means absolutely nothing—that’s full of strife! I know it takes commitment. It takes time. But so do long hospital stays and debt you can’t pay!
Let’s put our eyes on Romans 10:17, which says:
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
There’s no such thing as faith that doesn’t come. It has to come! It’s in The WORD itself. The WORD goes in and releases God’s faith, and feeds your faith, which is God’s faith. Do you see it? That’s spirit food! Jesus said in John 6:63, “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are LIFE.”
More trouble is coming, but hey, so what? That’s nothing new. We’re Kingdom people. That’s what we do. We overcome trouble! Greater is He who’s in us, than he who’s in the world.
Let’s close by putting The WORD in front of our eyes, in our mouths and in our hearts. First John 5:4-5 says,
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Read that out loud, over and over. Read it and confess it every day, until it becomes part of your thinking process. Say, “I’m a world overcomer and, by faith, I am overcoming every thing and every situation the devil is throwing at me. The Greater One lives in me! This is THE VICTORY—EVEN MY FAITH!”
As you sow your BLESSING seed this month, don’t forget what we believed for last month: THE POWER OF THE DOUBLE! Sow for it: Healing breakthrough and financial breakthrough. All it takes is FAITH IN GOD!
Gloria and I love you very much, and you are prayed for every day—not just by us, but by our entire ministry staff. You are BIG in our hearts. BE BLESSED!
I believe for the power of the DOUBLE!
Healing and financial breakthroughs are here!
All it takes is my faith in GOD!
