“Lord Your Word is good enough for me” hallelujah! This is what came to my mind this morning. No matter what is happening in front of you or behind you. No matter what the circumstances surrounding you…God’s Word is good enough for you.
Remember the Centurion whose servant was sick and ready to die? Almost immediately when the Centurion had sent elders of the Jews to Jesus for Him to come heal his servant, the Centurion sent words back to Jesus saying, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof……..but say the word, and my servant will be healed” Luke 7:1-9 hallelujah! Faith in God always produces results. The Word of God is good enough for you and I. Faith in the Word of God always produces results.
When Jesus heard the words of the Centurion He marvelled at his faith and turned to those that followed Him and said, “…I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” And by the time the messengers got back to the Centurion’s house, they found the hitherto sick servant perfectly healed. The Centurion had faith that when Jesus says a Word, it will manifest.
This is the faith we need to develop in God’s Word. Whatever you are looking for, it is found in the Word.
The enemy may be bringing everything he has against you. Hurt after hurt. Calamity after calamity. Distress after distress. And while it feels as though you are not going to make it, your faith will. Your faith will see you through every single trial. You may feel the effects of the fire right now and the heaviness may be weighing on you, but God will make sure your faith will remain in tact.
Your faith is indeed more precious than gold that cannot stand the heat. It melts. But not you. Just when you think you are done and cannot take anymore, Jesus shows up in the fire. He shows up in your situation and there is praise, honor, and glory. It’s not that He wasn’t there at the beginning with you, He was there all along, but He reveals Himself so that you can see that He is with you.
When He said He will never leave you nor forsake you, He meant it. God hasn’t abandoned you and He hasn’t left your side. He is right there to help your faith. Every Word of God strengthens your faith, so do not close your Bible now. It’s not time to die, not in the fire. Not like this. Live for God. Endure to the end.Persevere by faith. You can do it. Watch God turn what the enemy has meant for your bad around for your glorious good. AMEN.
YOURS IS A SPECIAL MEAL hallelujah! I walked into a hotel and after going through the menu, I ordered some food. After about 20 minutes a group of guys and ladies walked in and ordered theirs. To my dismay, these folks got served first. I watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. I even overheard one of them bragging about how connected he is to everyone in the hotel and I felt mocked. I decided to leave. Unable to take it anymore, I called the waiter. He calmly said to me; “yours is a special order, being prepared by the chief chef himself. That group you see, their orders were prepared hurriedly by students on attachment because the top chefs are busy with yours” WOW..
“That’s why they were served first. Please have some juice as you wait. I calmed down and waited patiently. Shortly after, my meal was served by 6 waiters. Unknown to me, the owner of the hotel who happened to be an old long lost friend of mine saw me when I entered and decided to surprise me. She changed my simple meal to a five-star meal. The party at the other table was shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal. Such is life!
Some other people might be ahead of you and they might be even laughing at you yet you are waiting tirelessly wondering why it’s taking so long for a breakthrough in your life, enduring mockery and humiliation. I have the GOOD and BEST NEWS for you. The owner of the world has seen you and doesn’t want you to be served a simple meal like those who are mocking you. You are waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only chief chefs prepare them. Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes that laughing party will be silenced for good. Stay blessed and remain in faith your SUDDENLY BREAKTHROUGH IS COMING!
