Cheer Up; The Word Is Dependable!
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. (Acts 20:32).
There’s no gainsaying the fact that God’s
Word is dependable. The Psalmist conveyed this truth succinctly in Psalm 119:89
when he declared, “…Forever, O
LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”
He thus underlined the undisputable reliability of God’s Word, a fact known to
the angels, demons and all of creation. What this implies, in effect, is that
whatever God has said about you in His Word is dependable.
The Apostle Paul, in his parting address to
the brethren at Ephesus, as read in our opening scripture, commended them to
God, and to the Word of His grace, “…which
to build you up, and to
give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” For the Apostle to have “delivered” God’s people
to God’s Word means the Word has enough power to build, sustain, transform and
upgrade the life of anyone who’ll trust in it.
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what
has happened to you; be of good cheer; because with the Word you can change
things! You can trust the Word to effect changes in your family, home,
finances, and physical body. All you have to do is accept what the Word says
about you as absolute truth and refuse to be compelled by natural
circumstances. You’re healthy, rich, powerful, full of grace, wisdom and
strength; that’s what His Word says. However, you’ve got to acknowledge and declare this truth.
When sickness, poverty or fear tries to
attack you, insist on what the Word says! Shout out loud, “It is written; I
have the health of God in me! I’m rich! I’m more than a conqueror; a bundle of
success, and a victor in Christ Jesus!” This is how you stand your ground on
God’s Word and ensure its power is manifested in your life; it’s through your
confessions of faith! Whatever the Lord has said about you is dependable, so be
bold to speak the same thing in consent, and the Word will prevail in your life.
Confession I’m what God says I am; His Word is working in me mightily
and producing the fruit of what it talks about! I live in divine health,
supernatural abundance, and in continuous victory and prosperity because I live
by God’s infallible and dependable Word! Glory To God!
2 Corinthians 1:20
