THE WORD WILL PREVAIL Tuesday, 1 September 2015
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”. Isaiah 55:19 (KJV)
In this day and hour when evil is increasing at an alarming rate, it is important you realize that it is what God has said in His word that matters and not what is happening around you. If you learn to accept what God has said, it will change what is happening around you because the greatest power of God is His word. For instance it was what God said in Genesis 1 that brought the entire universe into existence. His word has no margin of failure. What the word accomplished in the beginning, can still be accomplished in your life today. You need to function with the understanding that it is the word of God that will prevail and manifest in your life. Let the devil somersault as much as he likes, what God has said concerning you this year cannot be aborted. It shall surely come to pass and there is nothing the devil can do about it. It doesn’t matter what is happening in your life right now, understand that the God that spoke in the beginning and situations turned around is still speaking on your behalf. He is still speaking concerning your case. Stop looking at the seemingly impossible situations confronting you because the word of God will prevail over it.
If the word created all we can see and relate to, then settle it in your heart that the word of God would bring forth a manifestation in every area of your life. For instance, in Joshua 10: 12-14 we are told that Joshua had a battle to fight, but the approaching dusk meant the enemy of God’s people would have had the opportunity of escaping. Rather than lose the battle that day, Joshua decided to activate the word, and the word prevailed. For the first time, mortal man commanded the sun to stand still and God honoured his request. Joshua took a quality decision that he was going to get everything that life had to offer, and even creation had no choice than to co-operate with him.
Take a quality decision that nothing would stand in your way of receiving all that God has purposed for your life. Refuse to come to church as a spectator, nor come just to be counted. You must have a determination like Joshua to put a stop to whatever the enemy is fashioning against your life. It is my prayer that God will visit you. The earth will yield her increase for you. Creation will work for your good. God will turn your captivity around. He will fill your mouth with testimonies of His faithfulness. He will honour His word in your life.
