In the beginning, the Word was already there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made through him. Nothing that has been made was made without him. Life was in him, and that life was the light for all people. The light shines in the darkness. But the darkness has not overcome the light. John 1:1-5 NIRV
There are so many wonderful truths in these few verses that we could camp out and talk about them all day. God’s been speaking to me in the night about the Himself, the Word and the Holy Spirit and how connected they are. Just as you can’t extract the brewed coffee from the water it was brewed in, neither can you extract the Word, the Spirit and God. The three are one.
Jesus is the spoken Word of God. It says here that He was with God in the beginning. When God formed the plan to send Jesus into the world so that they could be saved, He spoke it first. Just like any seed, it must be planted before it can grow. When the angel appeared to Mary, he delivered the Word to Mary, Mary first received it. Then Holy Spirit hovered over her and activated that Word. She conceived or became pregnant with Jesus as God spoke it.
This is much like what God did with each of us. He sent Jesus so that those who believed in Him would receive eternal life, right? Upon receiving Him, we became pregnant with the Word. When the Holy Spirit was poured out, it merely activated the Word that was already alive in us. Do you see this? I hope so!
You see, the devil has worked hard to keep us in the dark about the power that is alive and at work in us. Why should we walk in the dark when the light of the world lives in us? Why should we be ignorant of these amazing truths that live in us? Does the Word not say, “You shall know the truth and it will set you free”?
Satans goal is to keep you ignorant, unaware of the power you’re plugged into. His whole game plan is to keep you disconnected from every Word spoken over you from the beginning of time. To keep you in the dark is the only way he can do that. To keep you busy with ’emergencies’ that are here today but gone tomorrow. Have you ever made plans to sit with the Lord and just love on Him? Every distraction you can think of comes into your view.
I command every dark place be flooded with light today. Set Your people free in Jesus’ powerful Name. Activate the Word that lives in us so that we may know and understand the power that works in us. Jesus, You are our transformer, making that power available and useable in us and working through us. We give You thanks for sending Your Word to heal, save and deliver us from every evil scheme of the enemy. May we walk in that power and demonstrate it to others. It’s in Your name and for Your glory, Amen.
