I love God’s Word and how I find Jesus leading and guiding me as I take hold of what He says. It’s one of the ways I have grown to know Jesus more and developed in my faith and trust that He is faithful to what He says.
When I’m believing for something or facing some problem, I know that the answer to the problem is a promise found in His Word.
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17)
It’s really important to seek God for His promise and Word in the situations we face in life. Before we try to trust and activate our faith, God says to seek Him and listen for the promise for our particular problem, desire or need.
When we take hold of it, this promise can then act as an anchor and a place through which we release our faith.
God is faithful to His Word for its part of who He is, and therefore He is alert and active watching over it to perform it. (John 1:1)
When we receive and believe what God says to us, what we once thought was out of our reach or impossible becomes possible and a reality in our lives as we take hold of the promises in His Word. As we do, our trust and faith are made stronger. (Romans 10:17).
Today whatever you are facing or believing for God to do, find what His Word says and get into agreement with what He says and apply it to your life.
Write His promise to you down or put it on your phone or other device, and every time you think about or get into worry or stressed about a situation, take that promise out and pray and declare it with everything you’ve got.
The answer to your problem today is a promise from the One who is faithful to fulfill it.
“Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it”. (Jeremiah 1:12)
“For the word of God is alive and active”. (Hebrews 4:12)
“In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God”. (John 1:1)
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your Word. Please lead me to your promises for me regarding my circumstances and future today. I choose to hold onto and believe in you, and what you say over any circumstance I may face. Thank you for your promises. In Jesus name Amen
