"For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned" (Matt. 12:37 KJV).

Your life is a product of your words.

When Adam decided to act on the serpent's words in the Garden of Eden, he became a slave to Satan. Adam lost his fellowship with God and had to live a life of hard labor, and ultimately died prematurely.

Satan has been blinding people ever since, trying to convince them that God's Word isn't true. As a result, people have been living subject to poverty, sickness, and spiritual death. Jesus came to give us prosperity, health and eternal life. But the road to life in Christ Jesus is paved with believing God's Word.

So the question has got to be asked, whose report are you going to believe?

The report you believe determines what you do. Your lifestyle is based on what you believe. If you believe God's Word, which says you are healed, then you will live like a well person. If you believe the doctor's report that says you are sick, then your lifestyle we be that of a sick person.

You must decide once and for all that you are going to believe the report of the Lord, because circumstances change, but God's Word never changes. Knowing the infallibility of the Word of God, Jesus defeated the devil when He came face to face with him.

In Luke 4, the devil is tempting Jesus in the wilderness. Jesus did not argue with him. He took the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God. Jesus had a living rhema word at that moment. He took out the dagger of the Word of God and verse 13 says, the devil left him for a season.

So, whose report will you believe?

Somebody told you that Jesus saves and heals and delivers. When you heard that you said I will receive that word.

Somebody told you that Jesus paid the price for your sin on Calvary's tree, and He rose from the dead to see to it that what He said comes to pass in your life; and you said I receive that word. And the moment you did power transmitted back to you.

You are not the same, now that you have received Jesus as Lord of your life. Now Jesus is your Lord, your master, the one who directs your life. And when you hear His Word, you receive it.
