In him [Jesus] was life [zoe]; and the life [zoe] was the light of men. — JOHN 1:4
The life that came into you at the New Birth can affect your mental processes by governing your thinking and your intellect.
It certainly did mine. I received eternal life as a teenage boy on the bed of sickness, April 22, 1933. Then on August 8, 1934, I was healed by the power of God through faith and prayer.
After my healing, I returned to high school. During the sixteen months I had been bedfast, I missed one school year. And in the two years of high school I had completed before, I had been a “D” student.
At that time, I didn’t have a Greek concordance, so I didn’t know about zoe. But I had my Bible, and the Spirit of God led me. Every day as I went to school I would say this:
“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. That life is in me. The life of God is in me. That life is the light. (I knew light stood for development.) That life is developing me. That life is developing my spirit. That life is developing my mentality. I’ve got God in me. I’ve got God’s wisdom in me. I’ve got God’s life in me. I’ve got God’s power in me.”
Confession: (Make your own confession today based on John 1:4, and confess the life of God within you as your light.)
