[ Selected ]

So, God works in us, but how do we know that it is God working in us.   First of all, through and by the Word of God.   This is one reason there has been such a falling away in this evening time.   There's not enough sound teaching, preaching, studying and reading of the Word of God. It's God's way of working in you.   God works in you, but He works in you by the Word of God.   We're in a lazy age.   This is why "emotionalism" is going over so big.   They just go down all at once, get an endowment of a spirit, and away they go.
True Christian living calls for daily searching and studying of God's Word.    The flesh wants to work in us, the devil wants to work in us, and hundreds of other spirits want to work a work in us, but the only way we can keep God working in us is by the Word of God.   We need the Bible today as never before, but the flesh has sold many people on the fact that God will work in us even if we don't read and study.   Nevertheless, God's divine energy is released in our lives through His inspired Word.   The Greek says it is God's energy working in you.   God's energy only works in you through His inspired Word.   Our hearts can become heavy with burdens and cares; yet, if we seek God's face and open up the Word of God, God can give us energy and strength to go on.

We want God to work in us every way except the way God has devised.   We read in
1 Thessalonians 2:13, "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe." How?   Through the Word working in us.  There's not a strong congregation on the face of the globe where there is not a strong preacher who preaches a Word strong. I'm not studying on how to let up; I want it strict, according to Truth.

When you won't allow the Word of God to work in you, you are not allowing God to work in you.   You might as well get rid of that idea, "I will do what I want to about His Word, but God will work in me."   When you reject the Word, you reject God working in you.   I repeat: God's divine energy is released in our lives by His inspired Word.   This is why we must not neglect the assembling of ourselves together.   You can come in spiritually weak, but if you will eat the Word as it is preached, you will go home blessed and ready to fight the battle.
The same words which spoke the universe into being releases divine power in my life. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:6, "For God, who cammanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts..."   Oh, the power there is in God's Word! Friend, it takes this same, powerful Word of God (which spoke the world out of a chaotic condition and brought it into all of its beauty and greatness), to make a new creature out of a sinner.   If we will take it as God's Word, it will work as God's Word.
