Again, my morning thoughts go to that of acting out (applying) the Word of God. There are many promises in the Bible for you and me to receive.
As a word of encouragement, God is not limited to anything. Simple faith is all that is needed to receive what you are in need of. God created you and He knows you better than yourself. Don’t limit God to our own human level. God is able to do anything and to the one who ask in faith believing, He will.
Maybe this morning you are burdened down with something that has taken up all your energy. Maybe you have allowed Satan to take over your thoughts and mind in such a way that life has become a burden.
I have good news for you; this battle in your mind and the burden that so overwhelms you is not for you to carry. Satan will do all he can to try and take you down and out. The battle and burden you are carrying is to be given to the Lord, and he will fight your battle and carry your burden. So, let’s put the Lord to work for you; for this battle with Satan is the Lord’s.
Just an added note; it is important to know the Word…truly faith is built upon the Word and when believed and applied, it will bring freedom to our thoughts, mind, spirit and soul.
1 Samuel states that “the battle is the Lord’s”. If the battle is the Lord’s, than give it to the Lord and let Him fight your battle!
Another scripture states, For only we who believe can enter his place of rest. As for those who didn’t believe, God said, “In my anger I made a vow: ‘They will never enter my place of rest,’” even though his place of rest has been ready since he made the world.
A believer will rest in Jesus’ finished work as stated in Hebrews 4:3. It is when you give it to the Lord, resting in the finished work of Jesus, you can say, I know, that I know, it is finished. There is ONLY ONE thing we can do to receive and that is to BELIEVE.
Again, let me say…it must be by faith, faith in, the finished work of Jesus, for today! Place your confidence in Jesus and begin NOW to rest in what is already DONE. We are only to ask in faith, believe in faith and receive by faith.
It is to be understood, that acting out God’s Word will take both knowing His Word and obeying His Word. As we apply His Word in our everyday living, we will begin to see His blessings and favor in our life.
DO YOU BELIEVE? What is it that you are in need off? Take a few moments and give God praise for who He is and thank Him for what He means to you. God has promised in His Word that He will never leave you or forsake you.
Let’s begin right now, to believe and receive from God. He is not limited; for there is NOTHING imposible for God and ANYTHING is possibe for those who believe.
Begin right now to allow your faith to rise. Don’t limit God. He can and will heal your body; mind, spirit and soul. Give the Lord you burden RIGHT NOW. Begin to take your request to the Lord. As you give your burden to the Lord, start by praising Him for the answer and by faith believe that you will receive. Take you request to Him and begin to thank Him for hearing your request. You can be assured that God hears your request and be at rest that the ANSWER is on its way. Begin to walk in victory as you act in faith.
Acting out God’s Word will take you into a walk of VICTORY: continue to walk in victory…expect the good report…for faith always has a good report.
The Word of God is truth and the truth is God. The truth is: “greater is he that is in you than He that is in the world.” Yes, the God in you is bigger (greater) than any devil.
I love what 1 John 4:4 says, “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won your fight with these false prophets, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. “
Do you see the necessity of reading His Word? It is active and alive to the reader and believer! It brings life to the body; mind, spirit and soul. The Word of God changes us into His likeness as we read, believe and apply.
Yes, you are more than an overcomer, because Gods’ righteousness is in you, for His Spirit resides in you.
Again let me say, the battle has been fought and has already been won! Jesus overcame Satan. For Jesus is in you as a believer and you don’t have to fight the battle, Jesus did it for you, for me and it has already been won!
With God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwelling in you, you are more than an overcomer! You have been set free if you believe.
Colossians 1:27 sums it all up like this, “For it has pleased God to tell his people that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. For this is the secret: Christ lives in you, and this is your assurance that you will share in his glory”.
Do you see the truth? As long as you don’t know this truth, Satan will take advantage. The Christ in you is your hope of glory! As a born-again believer we will never have to worry, Eternal Life is ours.
Again, let me say, as we go through this journey of life we are to continually leave our cares in His hand. God truly cares for you as stated in 1 Peter 5:7 “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.” (this includes everything –all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all –on Him…yes, He cares for you!).
God wants us to live a life of faith by acting on the knowledge that God gives us, and His knowledge states that “…the just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 “This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. ”
As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
Here is where faith stands as stated in 2 Corinthians 5:7, “That is why we live by believing and not by seeing. “
So you can say, that you act faith – you talk faith (Gods’ promises) and you live faith. In other words, your actions and your words must agree that you are a believer, that of speaking and walking according to Gods’ Word.
As always, Love in Christ Jesus,
