From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals December 8, 2018 – Get the Two Together – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:Get the Two Together
Kenneth Copeland

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Colossians 2:6-7

Kenneth Copland

Established in the faith and abounding with thanksgiving. These days it seems that’s a rare combination.

A lot of people have been taught faith over the last several years, and a lot of people have been taught to abound with thanksgiving. But it’s been hard to set the two together. Faith folks want to confess the Word all the time, but they don’t praise God very much. And those who like to praise God just want to jump and shout and dance and have a good time in the Lord. You can’t get them to get very serious about the Word.

Success comes from combining the two.

So, do it! Put them together in your life. When you run into a challenge, don’t just stand around grim-faced and white-knuckled holding on to your faith. Raise your hands high and praise. Start thanking God in the midst of what’s happening around you. Keep thanking Him for the answer until it comes.

Instead of just standing on the Word, let the joy of the Lord enable you to dance around on it a little. It will get you where you’re going a whole lot faster…and both you and God will have a much better time on the way.

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotions November 25, 2018 – Stir Up the Power – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:Stir Up the Power
Kenneth Copeland

Greatly desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears…. I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you…. For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:4,6-7, New King James Version

Kenneth Copland

There are times when you know what God has called you to do, but you just don’t feel you have the inner resources you need to do it. Somehow you’ve simply run dry. You know the Word says that “out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). But, during those times, you can’t even find the creek bank, much less the river.

The Word of God tells us how to handle those situations through a clear command: “Stir up the gift inside you.”

You stir yourself up! Everything you need is already in you. Jesus put it there. Everything you’ll ever need to accomplish what God has called you to do has been placed inside you by God Almighty.

Faith is in there. Power is in there. Love is in there. Believe that. Speak it out. Say it to yourself now, right out loud:

“In the Name of Jesus, I stir up the gift that’s within me by faith. I’m stirring up my faith. I’m not going to wait until I feel stirred up. I’m stepping out by faith and expecting my feelings to follow!

“I’m stirring up the love of God that’s in me. I’m stirring up the power. I’m stirring up myself and running the devil out of my affairs. I’m stirring myself up in the Spirit of the living God! I am stirred up!”

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotions November 5, 2018 – Fight the Right Foe – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:Fight the Right Foe
Kenneth Copeland

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh.
2 Corinthians 10:3

Kenneth Copland

Do you know why so many believers are losing the battles in their lives?

They’re fighting the wrong enemy!

They’ve been deceived into believing that just because a person said or did something to hurt them, that person is the one they need to fight. But they’re wrong.

You see, the Bible says we don’t wrestle with flesh and blood. And since people are definitely flesh and blood, they’re never the source of our problem.

“But, Brother Copeland, you just don’t know what So-and-so did to me!”

It doesn’t matter. If you waste your time fighting So-and-so, your real enemy will get away scot-free.

Who is that real enemy? Look at Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Satan and his demons. They are your lifelong enemies! They are behind every personal affront you encounter.

The people who hurt you and persecute you are only Satan’s tools. When he wants to strike out at you, he uses them to get the job done.

Remember this: Persecution is not the manifestation of another person’s hate for you. It’s a manifestation of Satan’s fear of you. When you get into the Word and start swinging it around—using it like the sword of the Spirit it is—he gets scared. So he looks for some person he can send in there to stop you.

Next time someone hurts you, don’t let yourself get sidetracked into fighting them. Bind the spirit behind them. Put flesh-and-blood battles behind and war with the weapons of the Spirit. Zero in on Satan with authority and the Word of God and bring your real enemy down!

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotions November 4, 2018 – It Only Takes a Few – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:It Only Takes a Few
Kenneth Copeland

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Kenneth Copland

You may be thinking, Can a few people like us actually change the whole nation?

Let me ask you this: Can one demonic person change a nation for the worse? Definitely. Hitler did it in Germany, didn’t he?

Then if the devil’s power resting on a man can change a nation for the worse, you can be sure that a group of men and women with God’s power resting on them can change a nation for the better.

No nation is so far gone that God can’t change it. Israel proved that. Why, even when it didn’t exist, the devil couldn’t destroy it. God raised it back up before his very eyes.

I want you to notice something in that scripture. It says, “If my people, which are called by my name….” God didn’t say it would take everyone in the nation to get things turned around. He said, “If my people….”

Notice also that He didn’t say, “If My people will get out there and sign petitions and drum up a majority vote….” He said, “Pray.” In other words, we’re going to have to quit trying to work this thing out by ourselves. God Himself will do the healing in this land. Our job is to pray, to believe and to seek His face. Seek Him today.
