Our focus is: What has God said, and what will He say to me today?

I, myself, am nothing. At best, I am only a voice. All I want to be is a voice, speaking His Living Word. This is the one thing God gave me that I exalt. I delight to be a channel for the Word. I magnify this office, as Paul did his; but as far as taking anything to myself personally, I do not. I am not a privileged person on the human level. Every day, I take less privilege on the human level, for I believe the Lord’s people will be a humble people by their own choice.

Thank God for the whole Scripture, our wonderful Holy Bible. But if we have true faith, we may need only one verse of it all. One verse could change the world. It is when we penetrate into the deep meaning of a Scripture that we finally have detonated its divine power. We can look at all the great sources of energy, but it is exploding an atom that releases the greatest sources of energy known. This illustrates exactly what God is doing with us. He is getting us into His Word. The deep Word of God, when it is expounded and opened to us, begins to explode. All my life I have meditated on Scriptures; and the great yearning of my heart is that a handful of them, which have meant so much to me by revelation, be exploded by a supernatural faith that could change the whole world.
