I love Kenneth E. Hagin's "Faith Food" for today! 


"Thy word is true from the beginning" (Psalm 119:160). 
People often make a substitution for faith - they substitute mental assent or mental agreement. They mentally agree that God's Word is true, and they call that faith. But mentally agreeing with the Word isn't faith. 

You can mentally agree that the Bible is true, but it won't become real to you until you act on what it says. It's when you act on God's Word that it becomes a reality. 

For example, you can believe in the truth of the resurrection as a great doctrine (and in some circles that's all it is - a doctrine or a dogma), but it won't mean a thing in the world to you until you can say, "Jesus died for me! Jesus arose victorious over death, hell, and the grave - and He did that for me! Jesus arose victorious over Satan! Jesus conquered Satan for me! Therefore, Satan has no dominion over me! I'm free!" 

The resurrection won't mean anything in your life until you can say these very words. Then the resurrection truth in the Word of God will become something more than just a doctrine, a dogma, a creed, or a theory - it will become a reality! 

Confession: I am a doer of the Word. I act on what the Word says is mine. The Word is true. I know it's true. So I act like it's true, and the Word becomes a reality in my life. 
If you ever find yourself questioning the Word of God because your experience doesn't line up with the promise, then you are in the position of having agreed mentally (mental assent) with the Word, but you have not yet meditated on it to the point that this Word becomes so real to you that no one could convince you otherwise! That is what the instruction and exhortation of Joshua 1:8 is for! 

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

Make sure that YOU are not simply agreeing that the Word is true, but that you are thinking, pondering, asking, and acknowledging that it is true FOR YOU! THAT is when the power of the Word of God can set you free, and, if you continue in this Word, it will KEEP you free! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "Lost Are Found":

Shalom in Him!
