“When someone approaches me in great emotional disturbance, I would know that the Word of God is not dominating his or her life. They discuss their battles instead of the One who is fighting for them. They discuss their warfare instead of the promise of victory. They discuss their doubts instead of their faith in God. Their focus is on their enemy instead of their Comforter. If the Word of God were dominating their minds, it would dominate their mouths. Remember, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34). If the Word of God were dominating their minds, it would influence their conduct and behaviour.
“You must embrace the Word of God as the most effective instrument for change. That is why Paul wrote to Timothy: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). The Holy Spirit inspired the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit affects your words. The Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to bring peace into your heart.”
– T.B. Joshua
