From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals JANUARY 5, 2021 – You Are Righteous – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic: You Are Righteous
Kenneth Copeland

…not having mine righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.
Philippians 3:9

Kenneth Copland

I don’t care how badly you may have messed things up yesterday or how many mistakes you have made, I want you to begin this day knowing you are righteous! Not because of anything you’ve done but because you’ve received, by faith in Jesus, the very righteousness of God.

Just look at the kinds of benefits the Word of God says that righteousness will bring:

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree” (Psalm 92:12).

“When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth” (Proverbs 11:10).

“The seed of the righteous shall be delivered” (Proverbs 11:21).

“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers” (1 Peter 3:12).

“For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalms 5:12).

“The righteous cry and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles” (Psalms 34:17).

“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25).

“The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever” (Psalms 37:29).

“The Lord loveth the righteous” (Psalms 146:8).

Don’t let the devil rob you of even one of these blessings by telling you you’re unworthy of them. Run him off. Shout out loud, “I am the righteousness of God!” Then step out in faith and enjoy the privileges God has prepared for you!

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals JANUARY 4, 2020 – Let the World Know – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic: Let the World Know
Kenneth Copeland

Neither pray I for these alone, but them also which shall believe on me through their word…. that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me…
John 17:20-23

Kenneth Copland

Over the years the Church has come up with all kinds of elaborate ways to evangelize the world. We get together and map out plans and strategies and raise money for it. But through it all, we rarely mention the plan that Jesus gave us.

Most believers don’t even realize that He gave us the key to winning the world, but He did. He prayed about it right before He went to the Cross. He asked the Father to bring us into a place of such oneness with each other and with Him that the world would know that He had been sent from God.

If you and I and all the rest of the Body of Christ would get together and start loving each other, we’d evangelize the world so fast it would make your head swim. It’s true. But until recently, we’ve been too busy scrapping with one another and getting our feelings hurt to give it much thought.

But, praise God, it’s beginning to dawn on some folks now that we need to stop that stuff. We need to start treating Jesus’ command that we love one another as a command instead of an alternative. We need to drop our silly arguments and be unified by the Spirit of God.

Do you want to take a step toward evangelizing the world today? Then start praying for oneness. Make up your mind that you’re going to start loving your fellow believers instead of criticizing, complaining and talking ugly about them.

Start confessing that the Church of God is going to rise together in faith and love as one glorious Body driven by the power of Jesus Himself. We are, you know. Jesus prayed that it would happen, and the Holy Spirit is already bringing it to pass.

Satan would like to stop it, but he can’t. It’s far more powerful than he is—and it’s going to blast a hole in his operation that’s big enough to drive a train through. It’s going to let the whole world know that Jesus truly is Lord!

Topic: Born to Victory
Gloria Copeland

I have told you these things so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world, you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration, but be of good cheer…I have overcome the world.
John 16:33, The Amplified Bible

Kenneth Copland

Jesus said as long as you live in the world, you’re going to have trouble. (I can vouch for that!) But you’re not just in the world. You’re in Jesus in the world, and that makes all the difference. You’re in Him and He’s overcome every kind of trouble there is.

As God’s child, you’re not the defeated trying to get the victory. You’re the overcomer, and Satan’s trying to rob you of the victory that already belongs to you.

When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, you were born into victory… because Victor came to live in you. Think about it. The victorious Jesus. The Anointed One. The glorified and resurrected Lord. The Ruler of the Universe.

Cheer up, my friend. Have “perfect peace and confidence.” That’s Jesus who lives in you!

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals DECEMBER 28, 2020 – Major on Mercy – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic: Major on Mercy
Kenneth Copeland

…I beseech thee, show me thy glory.
Exodus 33:18

Kenneth Copland

What would you say is the single, most outstanding thing about God? What’s His most important characteristic? Some people would say it’s His power. Others, His holiness. But God Himself would give a different answer.

You can find that answer in Exodus 33. There Moses is asking God to show him His glory.

Now the word glory could be translated, heavyweight.” It refers to the heaviest, biggest, grandest thing about someone. It’s the total of their worth.

So what Moses was saying was, “Lord, I want to see the weightiest thing about You. I want to know Your grandest attributes.” What did God say to him in response?

Chapter 34:6-7 tells us, “The Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin.”

Just think about that! When Moses asked God to show him the most important thing about Himself, God showed him His mercy.

That means if you and I are to imitate God (Ephesians 5:1) we must major in mercy too. Mercy, goodness, forgiveness and compassion must mark our behaviour above all else.

Major on mercy and others will see the glory of God in you.

Topic:Don’t Answer
Gloria Copeland

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2

Kenneth Copland

Be not conformed to this world. If you live like the world, you’ll be overcome by the world. It’s as simple as that. So don’t let the world squeeze you into its own mold.

Instead “…be transformed” by the entire renewal of your mind. Overcome the world by having your mind transformed to thinkase God thinks. In other words, when you see something in the Word, say, “I agree with that. From now on I’m acting on that instead of what I used to think.”

For example, when sin calls your name, don’t answer. Agree with the Word instead and say, “I’m dead to that, Devil. You can’t pull me into it anymore!”

As you do that, you’ll find yourself changing. You will find yourself living like a world overcomer!

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals DECEMBER 24, 2020 – Good Success – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:Good Success
Kenneth Copeland

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…have good success.
Joshua 1:8

Kenneth Copland

Good success is a way of life that comes from being established in the Word of God. It comes from spending so much of your time and your thought life on the Word that it becomes what you and I could call “second nature.” It comes from hearing and obeying the Word so consistently that it begins to guide your actions even when you’re not consciously thinking about it.

When I started flying aeroplanes planes, I learned to train myself by getting the handbook for a care aeroplane plane and reading it over and over again. In my mind’s eye, I’d visualize everything that could occur in the aeroplane plane. I trained myself by meditating on what I needed to do.

And that’s exactly what I started doing with the Word of God. I thought about it day and night. Before long, I started getting excited about what I was reading.

I’d sit at home and think about how I’d apply the Word in different situations. I’d see myself praying for the sick and having them recover. The Word became “second nature” to me.

Practice meditating on the Word that way. Let it become part of you. See yourself obeying it in every possible circumstance. It will guarantee your good success.”

Topic: Go When You’re Ready
Gloria Copeland

With long life will I satisfy [you], and show [you] my salvation.
Psalm 91:16

Kenneth Copland

Did you know that it’s not God’s will for you or anyone to die young? His will for you is to live the full number of your days. You ought to live for 70 or 80 years, and if you are not satisfied, live awhile longer! The Bible says that when Abraham died, he died at a good old age, full of years. That’s the way it ought to be with all of us.

Some believers don’t realize that and they’ve gotten themselves in a mess. When they get sick, instead of just believing for healing, they start wondering if it’s God’s will for them to die. Maybe He’s ready to call me home, they think.

Don’t ever entertain thoughts like that. If God has His way, He won’t call you home until you’re good and ready to come. The Apostle Paul understood that. In 2 Timothy 4:6-7, he said, “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” Paul didn’t die until he and Jesus were ready for him to go.

Regardless of your age, if the devil is telling you God isn’t going to heal you because it’s time for you to go home, he is lying to you. God promises in Psalm 91:16 that if you are living under the shadow of the Highest, He will satisfy you with long life. (That means that you are abiding in Him as Jesus taught in John 15.)

If you’re not satisfied that you have finished your course yet on this earth, it’s not time for you to die. So ignore the devil and keep right on living. Resist sickness and disease in the Name of Jesus. Stand on God’s promise!

Then, when you’re ready to go on to heaven, go! But go satisfied, healed and ready! Go in victory shouting the words of that old joy-filled song—”Heaven is near and I can’t stay here. Goodbye world, goodbye.”

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals DECEMBER 22, 2020 – Don’t Just Sit There…Arise! – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic: Don’t Just Sit There…Arise!
Kenneth Copeland

Now four men who were lepers were at the entrance of the city’s gate; and they said to one another, Why do we sit here until we die… So they arose.
2 Kings 7:3-5, The Amplified Bible

Kenneth Copland

No matter how bad the problem is you may be facing today, no matter how far under the circumstances you may be, in 24 hours you can be back on top!

“Oh, Brother Copeland, that would be impossible!”

That’s what the Samaritans thought in 2 Kings 7. Their land was being ravaged by famine. Enemy troops had surrounded them and cut off all source of supply. Mothers were eating their children just to survive.

But right in the middle of that, the Lord told the prophet, Elisha, a that in 24 hours the whole situation would change. Flour and barley would sell for just a few pennies and there would be abundance for all.

What did God use to turn that situation around?

Four lepers! Four lepers who, instead of sitting around feeling sorry for themselves and waiting to die, decided to arise and take their chances in the enemy camp. When they got there, they found it abandoned. All the warriors had been frightened away by the angels of God, and they’d left enough food behind to feed all of Samaria!

Sometimes you and I are like the officials in that story. We get problem centred instead of Word-of-God centred. We let ourselves be so surrounded by the loud voice of the world that the vision of our victory is pushed out of sight.

When that happens, faith and power begin to subside and life caves in on us from every side.

If that’s happened to you, stop crying about it. Stop looking at your problem and feeling sorry for yourself. That won’t change anything!

Just like He did for Elisha, God’s given you a word. He’s promised you victory. He’s promised to make you an overcomer.

So don’t just sit there till you die. Don’t accept defeat. Rise in the faith. Standup God’s Word and fight for your life. Get mad at Satan. Cast him out. Get mad at that sickness. Get angry with poverty and start giving.

Rise and receive the deliverance of the Lord!

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals DECEMBER 21, 2020 – Stick to Your Calling – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic: Stick to Your Calling
Kenneth Copeland

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God…. who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
2 Timothy 1:6-9

Kenneth Copland

Are you doing what God called you to do?

If you haven’t ever thought about it before, that may sound like an odd question to you. You may be tempted to shrug it off and say, “Oh, I’m not called to do anything. I’m not a pastor or a teacher or a minister of any kind…I guess I’m just what you might call a little finger on the Body of Christ.”

Let me tell you something: No matter who you are, God has put a holy calling in you. He’s designed you and called you to meet a need in the Body of Christ that nobody else can meet quite as you can.

You may be called to be so successful in business you can finance the gospel worldwide. You may be called to a ministry of prayer and intercession. You may be called to a ministry of healing right there in your neighbourhood. But no matter what that calling is, it’s important and you need to follow it!

If you’re like many believers I know, you may have let your life become so overgrown with other things that you just don’t have time to pursue your calling. You may be so overwhelmed with the cares of life that you can’t imagine how you can fit in anything else.

Over the years, a pastor friend of mine got involved in so many different areas of ministry that he was about to fold up physically under the strain of it. The overload was actually about to kill him. Finally, the Lord spoke to him one night and said, John, it’s not your calling that’s nearly killed you. It’s everything else you’ve added to it.

I’ve had to deal with that in my own life. I’ve had to quit doing things just because they need doing. I’ve had to discipline myself to stick to what I’m called to do.

Make up your mind to prayerfully trim away the extra things you’ve added to your life. Stir up the gift God has placed inside you. Get back to what He has called you to do.

After all, that calling is vital. It’s holy…and it’s yours. Don’t ever let it slip away from you.

Topic:Don’t Settle for Second Best
Kenneth Copeland

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
James 1:2-3

Kenneth Copland

I admit, it’s tough to be enthusiastic about going through tests and trials. But can you get excited about being totally supplied in every way, in want of nothing? Well, according to the Word of God, if you’ll use your trials to develop patience, you’re going to be in precisely that position!

You see, patience doesn’t mean what you thought it meant. It does not mean settling sweetly for second best. It does not mean standing meekly by while the devil romps all over you.

No, patience is a powerful word. The New Testament meaning of it as translated literally from the Greek is “to be consistently constant or to be the same way all the time, regardless of what happens.”

To understand how much power is involved in that, you have to realize that it’s one of the most outstanding attributes of God Himself. The Bible says He’s the same yesterday, today and forever.

Think about that for a minute. The guy who absolutely cannot be changed by anyone or anything is an extremely powerful fellow, wouldn’t you say? Obviously, God has that much power.

But you know what? You do too!

By the power of the Holy Ghost working within you, you can be the same every day no matter what happens. If you’ll put your trust in the Word of God and let patience go to work, it won’t matter what happens. You won’t ever have to accept anything less than victory again.

Now that’s something to get excited about.
