For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart – Hebrews 4:12
Our opening scripture lets us know the power, infallibility, and immutability of God’s Word. The Word produces results when you believe, confess, and act upon it as truth. For example, 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” This means no matter what comes your way, insist that you’re triumphant always, and in all things; stand your grounds in faith—against all odds—maintaining that you’re a victor in Christ Jesus.
Some Christians have the notion that “Whatever will be, will be”; and they’re wrong. God didn’t leave us at the mercy of the devil or the circumstances of life. He didn’t leave things to chance. Not once did He tell us in the Scriptures, “Whatever will be, will be.” That’s what the devil would rather have people think, so they won’t have to do anything about their situation. But we’re smarter than that! We’re Word practitioners. We act the Word.
God gave us His Word to live by, and to use in creating our glorious and triumphant lives. So, it’s your responsibility to use the Word; to work the Word. Philippians 2:12 says, “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”
This was what Abraham did. In Genesis 17:5, the Lord said to him, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.” At this time, Abraham was nearly a hundred years old, and didn’t have any child, but he believed and acted on the Word (Read Romans 4:17-21)! He didn’t stagger at the promise of God, through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God!
The change you desire in your finances, health and family is dependent on you, not God. Act on the Word. Insist that there’s going to be only one outcome: what the Word says!
