The Prince of Peace wants to come in and give you peace, he wants to calm every fear and heal every hurt. And he has a system for doing exactly that. His word is the means of bringing you peace. James 1:21 says, "To receive with meekness the engrafted word, which has the power to save your soul." The engrafted word, which has the idea that you are going to have to put the word on the inside of you. The word of God is the sword of the spirit and with it you cut the roots which in turn will kill the fruit (fear, worry, anxiety, hurt). And the word is not only the sword of the spirit, but it is also seed. So by planting the word in you then you start a new root system which in turn produces different fruit (peace, joy, love). The weapons of our warefare are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2Corinthians 10:4,5). One of those weapons is the word of God, for it is quick(alive) and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). The word is anointed and when that word gets on the inside of you then the anointing will remove the burden and destroy the yoke (Isaiah 10:27).
Paul in Romans 10:8 says, "The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach." That's how you get it on the inside of you, by your mouth. Some people don't know the effect words have on them, but Proverbs 21:23 says, "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles." And what word is better to keep your soul from troubles than the word of God. It has the ability to bring every thought to the obedience of Christ(the anointed one). The anointing is the burden removing, yoke destroying power of God. Notice 2Corinthians 10:4,5 shows the progression, first the thought, then the fear or worry, then the imagination, then the stronghold. A stronghold is when something is so fixed in your mind and it has just that on you a stronghold. But thank God there's something stronger, the anointing. And the anointing goes to the root and cuts it off. And once the roots are cut then the fruit have to die. Jesus is the word made flesh (John 1:14). God and his word are one (John 1:1). So when you let the word in then you let them in and there's nothing to hard for the Lord. So no matter how fearful, worried, or hurt you may be let the Prince of Peace come in.
Good word, thanks.

Thank you gettinolder for taking the time to read this article and for your comment. Thanks!!
Thankyou again, I have printed out a copy for hubby and my son on your articles about what proceeds out of our mouth comes from our heart/spirit, and how words are alive. And that its ok to be angry, but sin not the bible says and meditate within your heart on your bed and be still. PS 4:4 and Eph 4:26. they have that problem of letting their mouth run in a cruel way sometimes and not realizing the consequences of it and hurtfulness. Not to let circumstances rule your life.
