I. The Word should first be in our minds.
- Ps 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (KJV)
  A. We must receive the Word first in our minds to know the Word. We do this by:
    1. We hear the Word.
    2. We read the Word.
    3. We get a knowledge of the Word

II. We need and must have to Word in our Hearts.
- Ps 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not
sin against thee. (KJV)
- Deut 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: (KJV)
  A. The word goes into our heart as we digest it in our minds. We do this by:
    1. We chew it by meditating upon the Word.
    2. We then can have a spiritual swallow.
      a. This is when the Word becomes the Rhema of the Word.
  B. In our minds we can know the Word, but in our hearts we believe the Word.
  C. Have you not read a passage over and over perhaps for years, and then one day, it becomes real to you. You just had a spiritual chew. You now not only know but you believe it in your heart.
  D. You can know a thing and not believe it.
    1 When I was taught evolution in school, I knew the theory but did not believe it.
    2. When I was saved, I heard the Word first, it was in my mind. However, when I received Christ the Word came in to my heart and I believed the Gospel
    3. Jesus Christ is the Living Word!

III. Then the Word needs to be in our MOUTH
- Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
- Jos 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (KJV)
  A. Three persons need to hear us speak the Work.
    1. First you must hear yourself confess the Word.
      a. When you do hear your self it is building yourself up in the most holy faith.
      -Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, (KJV)
      b. This is what weight lifters do, football players, they speak to the weights, and they speak to their opponents that they can do it.
      c. Jesus said to speak to the mountain of our life.
    2. Then the devil needs to hear us speak the Word.
    - 1 Pet 5:9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, (the Word)
      a. This is how Jesus dealt with the devil during his temptation.
      b. We need to speak God's Word to the devil and he will flee.
    3. The God needs to hear us speak the Word.
    - 2 Cor 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. (KJV)
      a. When He hears us speak His Word He says "YEA".
      b. All His promises are Yea and Amen.
      When we say Amen with God, we are agreeing with His Word. Matt 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
      - Isa 57:19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.

IV. We need to have the Word in thy Hand.
- Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (KJV)
  A. Having the Word in our hands means we must do the Word
  - James 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: (KJV)
  B. The Hand represents work and doing.
  C. We must work the Word, by doing what He says in His Word!

Let us Hear, Believe, Speak and do the Word of God!

God bless you and yours.
