Kenneth Copeland Devotional 28 January 2019 – Don’t Be Stony Ground written by Kenneth & Gloria Copeland
Topic: Don’t Be Stony Ground
Memorise: And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended. – Mark 4:16-17
There seems to be an abundance of “stony ground” Christians these days. Initially, they get excited about the Word of God. They’ll hear a message on prosperity, for instance, and they’ll go home saying, “Hallelujah! I’m going to prosper in the Name of Jesus!” But then, somehow, things don’t work out like they thought they should.
Their bank balance doesn’t double overnight. They go through some disappointments. They suffer some criticism. Then, before you know it, their faith has withered away. Kenneth Copeland Devotional 28 January 2019
If you don’t want that to happen to you, make up your mind right now that you’re not going to let the rough times defeat you. Decide now that you’re going to hang onto the Word even when the persecutions and afflictions come—because, I can guarantee you, they will come. Kenneth Copeland Devotional 28 January 2019
When you decide to walk by faith, you don’t get rid of trials. You learn to overcome them.
When you let the Word of God get down into your heart, you’re going to learn more about the devil than you ever wanted to know because he’s going to do his best to see to it that the Word is unfruitful in you. He’s going to be trying to mess you up every time you turn around. You’ll have problems, but the difference is now you have the answer—the Word of God.
Today’s Kenneth Copeland Devotional 28 January 2019 – Don’t Be Stony Ground
Thank God, however, through Christ Jesus you have the power to defeat Satan. When he brings problems and disappointments your way, you don’t have to lie down and let them steam roll over you. Just keep fighting the good fight of faith until you win.
Sure you’ll get knocked down sometimes. But when you do, get back up and say, “Look here, Devil, I’m not going to let you steal the Word out of my heart. It’s in there and I’m meditating on it. I’m saying it with my mouth, and I’m acting on it until God’s blessings overtake me. If you don’t believe me, just hide and watch!”
If you’ll take that attitude, no matter what that devil does, he’ll never make a “stony ground” Christian out of you!
