You can depend on the Word!

Updated: 2 days ago




Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. - Psalm 119:11 NKJV 

 

Amidst economic fluctuations, societal transformations, and technological advancements, only one thing remains consistent– the Word of God. God will never leave you nor forsake you even when your friends and family forsake you.


By anchoring ourselves in the principles and promises found in God's word, we gain a sense of peace and assurance that transcends the uncertainties of life. It helps us navigate through difficulties, offering solace and strength to endure and overcome. 


Acts 3:5-6 says: “So, he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”  


This story serves as a reminder that God's answers to our prayers may not always arrive in the ways we anticipate or from the sources we expect. Sometimes, the individuals or circumstances that appear less promising may be exactly what God uses to bring about our breakthroughs or blessings. Peter's seemingly inadequate response turned out to be precisely what the lame man needed for a transformative miracle.  


The lame man might have initially expected money, but Peter provided something greater—a miraculous healing that transformed the man's life. This insight draws attention to a prevalent human tendency—often conditioning our belief in God's power and provision solely on material manifestations or tangible blessings. This mindset can limit our understanding of the vastness of God's abilities and diminish our trust in His word beyond material possessions. Trusting in God's word means acknowledging His promises and relying on His faithfulness, even when circumstances might not align with our expectations. His word holds the power to transform situations, hearts, and lives, far beyond what material possessions can achieve.  


The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Genesis 1: 2-3 NKJV. 


When there was darkness all over, God did not doubt Himself. All He needed to do was declare the Word, trust that the Word would come to pass and then, there was indeed light. Have you received a word from God concerning healing, breakthrough, and deliverance that has been spoken either through the prophetic or as seen in the scriptures? Hold on that word. Again, you can trust in the Word. 


We see in Isaiah 55:11: So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.  


The story of Ruth is indeed a beautiful example of trusting in divine guidance and following God's leading even when it may not seem like the most conventional or logical approach. Similarly, in our lives, God might reveal His plans or promises in ways that seem unconventional or different from our expectations. He might speak through His word, through people, or through circumstances, urging us to trust in His guidance and promises even when our current reality does not align with what He has spoken. Trusting in God's word means understanding that His promises are true and unwavering, regardless of the circumstances.

Just as Ruth followed Naomi's guidance and experienced her miracle, our obedience and trust in God's word can lead to transformative breakthroughs and the fulfillment of His promises in our lives. 


And it came to pass after many days that the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.” So, Elijah went to present himself to Ahab; and there was a severe famine in Samaria. 1 Kings 18:1-2 (NKJV.) 


Elijah, a prophet during a time of severe famine, received a message from God declaring both the onset and end of the drought. Despite the bleak circumstances and contrary to natural expectations, Elijah trusted in God's word without trying to rationalize or comprehend how rain could come during such a drought. This story encourages us to trust in God's word during our own moments of impossibility, knowing that His promises are steadfast and that He is fully capable of fulfilling them in His perfect timing and according to His divine plan.
