STAND ON THE WORD
Saturday, 15 August 2015
“He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” (Romans 4:20 &21 KJV)
God wants us to believe the word and stand absolutely and confidently on it. He wants us to be resolute in our belief, believe it so much that you can start working on it before you see the manifestation. You believe it so that God will honour what He says. Without the word of God, you cannot please God. But with the word, you can be pleasing in His sight because God and His word are one. And obeying His word is obeying Him. That is why He gave you His word. To know God is to know the word of God. That is why you must make it a priority not to observe rituals. Stop running from pillar to post! Stay in the word and get all that God has for you.
Remember that the plan of God is that you should please Him. His plan also is that you should be representative of Him on earth. You are to replicate Him and reveal who he is to the world. He wants you to be conformed to the image of His son in all things because whoever has seen the son has seen the father. God according to Hebrews 1:2-3 “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high”.
Jesus pleased the Father. In the same way and manner, God wants you and I to please Him by staking our lives out on His word. Pleasing Him is believing absolutely and totally in the efficacy of His word. No matter what you are seeing you must come to the realisation that God in His love cannot fail you. Genesis 15:6 made us to understand that Abraham believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. The bible also says God is not slack concerning His promises. Let us, therefore, believe Him wholeheartedly and depend absolutely on His word because there is power in the word. That word of God will produce wonders in your life and you will testify in Jesus Name.
