There is nothing as effective, energizing and powerful as the Word of God. It can create, revive, restore, save, heal, transform, etc. You can apply God’s Word to your health, finances, marriage, career, etc., and it will produce the expected results. The Word is so powerful that it can bring in life into dead situations, hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and light in the dark. Everything God created was by His Word. He called things that were not in existence into being by simply saying ‘let there be…,’ and there was. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful…” The Word works but you need to learn how to make it work for you. There are ways by which you can unleash the power of God’s Word onto any and every thing.
Like the Thessalonian church, you must receive God’s Word as a direct Word to you and not treat it as ordinary or mere words of men. It may be preached by men to you, but never make light of it. Esteem it greatly and receive it with faith, gladness and humility at all times. Men’s word may fail, but God’s Word never fails. Rejoice over it and celebrate it to release its superhuman power into your situation. It worked for the Thessalonian church because they had the right attitude towards the Word: “… when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” 1 Thessalonians 2:11.
Another way to work the Word is to keep it constantly in your mouth. Speak the word, confess it, affirm it, declare it. It is not enough to read or hear the Word. You need to cultivate the habit of talking the Word more than any thing else. That’s how to strengthen your faith to receive the fruits of the Word. Joshua 1:8 says, ” This book of the law shall not depart out of thy MOUTH…” Find out what it says about your finances and affirm it daily. If what you desire is a life partner, the Bible says none shall lake their mate and it is not good for man to be alone. Look up other scriptures and put them in your mouth night and day. It will work for you. Just don’t stop saying it. Get down to business and do the Word. Your story will take a glorious dimension.
The Apostle James says, ” But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” James 1:25 KJV. The energy in God’s Word can dematerialize tumours of all kinds, and cure all forms of infirmity. Even if the doctors have given up on you, there’s hope for you in God’s Word. Do warfare with the Word. Keep saying what it says about your health. The Spirit that raised Jesus lives in you and He is vitalizing every cell, tissue and organ of your body. Your marriage can be blissful. You can get that job of your dream. Your finances can flourish. Just keep working the Word and it will work for you.
PRAYER: In the name of Jesus I declare that the Word is effective in my life and it is producing in me the fruits of its message.
