God’s Word is good enough!

“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.

 

God will show up!

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.

You are an overcomer

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed 2Corinthians 4:8-9. Determine not to spend all of your time looking at your troubles, dwelling on your pain, and thinking of how you have been cast down. Do not throw a pity party today, tell yourself “I am an overcomer through Jesus Christ my Lord and savior”. You might be facing some challenges, but God’s going to see you through it. Do not be distressed, depressed, perplexed or in despair. God is with you and is greater than anything you are facing right now. Focus on your God, not on your problems. He is bigger Yes! You may be troubled on every side, but God will provide a way out for you. You may be suffering persecution, but God is with you. You may be cast down, but you are not destroyed. If you are still breathing, God has a plan to turn what the enemy has meant for your bad around for your good. God is determined and resolute to be glorified in your life. Tell your self, “I am an overcomes, I exercise dominion on every circumstance that do not align itself with God’s perfect will for my life. I am winning and reigning everyday because the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is the same Spirit that lives in me today. I speak life, I speak healing, I speak abundance, I speak miracles and favor over my life and my family. Greater is He in me than he in the world”. Keep saying it don’t stop.

Mustard seed (Faith)

Having “mustard seed faith” does not mean the size or amount. Mustard seeds are small, but very resilient. They have the ability to grow in spite of the condition of the land it is deposited into; they don’t need much soil to grow and neither do they need a great deal of moisture or sunshine to flourish. We should be just as resilient and exercise our faith no matter the conditions in our lives. My brothers and sisters, it only takes ONE ACT OF FAITH to turn the situations and circumstances around. If we must cry out: “Son of David, don’t pass me by”; or if we have to go and dip in the Jordan River seven times. Let’s do what needs to be done by faith through obedience and determination. Paul admonished us this is the only way we are going to please God. Pressing forward in faith and obedience, again, causes a reward to be given to the diligent seeker.
Don’t stop! Don’t be discouraged! Don’t succumb to the illusion being presented. Be resilient like the mustard seed; and move forward hallelujah
