This is not just a book just to be READ - it is a book to be SAID! “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].” Proverbs 18:21 If I could hand you a key that is guaranteed to change your life and circumstances; a principle that places the supernatural power of God on tap for every situation in your life and ministry, would you want to know what it is? Sometimes people shroud the simplicity of the gospel in a mess of religious rhetoric and theological confusion. Thankfully the Scriptures make plain and simple how we are to engage with God and receive and release His transforming power consistently in our everyday lives. In this practical Spirit-filled series of books, pastor and Bible teacher, David Lee Martin, unpacks the amazing truth concerning the power of the words that you speak, and shows clearly how you can apply this truth to change your world, and the world of those around you. This Edition: PHILIPPIANS The book of Philippians is so vibrant with the overflowing heart of the gospel. As you proclaim its truths over your own life, you will be filled to overflowing with God’s supernatural compassion for the world, and His indescribable love for you as one of His chosen vessels. Take the words on the following pages, salt them with your own thanksgiving, and let the joy of God fill and overflow in your life and ministry. The Benefits of Applying the Word As with several of my other books, this one is intended to be applied. It’s words and message are impotent if they are not vigorously acted upon. The ‘His Word My Word’ series of books take eternal truth and shape it for application right here and now! This series of books will train your tongue by planting the Word in your heart, and harnessing your testimony (the confession of your mouth) with the law of liberty - the perfect Word of our Father. Just a few the benefits you can expect as you act on what you read, and become a doer of the work include: • It renews the mind, building into your consciousness and expectation new truths to live by. • It moulds your vocabulary, harnessing your tongue to speak only those things God (and you) desire for your life. • It conforms your thoughts and words to His thoughts and Words. • It gives expression to the mind of Christ in any and all situations. • It raises our perspective from earthly to heavenly, from below circumstances to above them. • It banishes wrong thinking and emotions, replacing them with God’s own thoughts - our emotions will always follow our thinking, and our thinking will follow the deposit in our heart, and the words of our mouths. • It gives you an actionable principle you can apply to combat any adversity you face with confidence. • It establishes Godly boundaries in your life. • It overcomes the devil’s plans and purposes because you are never in agreement with him, and they cannot be established. • It develops new pictures of ourselves, ones that are shaped by God’s unchanging love for us. • It equips us with the necessary weapons for the Holy Spirit to bring to our remembrance what is needed to overcome, any time our mind, body or spirit come under attack. • It brings every thought into captivity and conformity to Christ, resulting in increased spiritual authority in the spirit realm and in relationships and ministry. • It is health to our flesh and strength to our bones. There are many more wonderful benefits that flow from disciplining ourselves to speak the Word only, but I am sure that you already you agree, any investment we need to make putting this into practice is far outweighed by the promised returns. It is truly life changing, and a spiritual principle that will stand the test of time and every challenge that is thrown at it.
