“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.
