Today I am going to continue on Confessing God’s Word. You know one way we do that it when we pray. For many years I did not know the power of praying God’s Word, actually quoting the scripture Nita and I are using to our Lord in prayer relating to the need we have and the promise of that need being fulfilled in God’s Word. There is tremendous power in that.
“SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT.” Isaiah 55:11
Believe it or not we make over 2,000 decisions in a day according to an article in Time Magazine. Other surveys I checked were even higher than that amount. These decisions range from deciding when to get out of the bed in the morning, to who you are going to marry, what house you are going to buy, what health insurance and the list goes on. SOME OF THOSE DECISIONS ARE LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS.
I cannot tell you how many times Nita and I have used this scripture as we pray this scripture to the Lord to receive direction from Him. I don’t know about you but I will not leave important and sometimes life and death decisions to our own rationale.
We trust God with our salvation, right? You trust the Lord if you are born again that your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life right? Then why would you ever make important decisions without letting the Holy Spirit guide you into all truth?
The scripture we have used over and over again and that we have taught others is James 1:5. IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY, AND UPBRAIDETH NOT, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM.” Have you ever read that verse and got a revelation of what that means? I mean have you really meditated upon it and saw just what the Lord was promising you. When you go get a revelation of this verse you will be using it all the time.
It is estimated that there are over 3,000 promises of God in His Word that should cover everything, Amen and Amen and maybe I should put a hallelujah in there also. It’s awesome that our Lord “ACCORDING AS HIS DIVINE POWER HATH GIVEN UNTO US ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN UNTO LIFE AND GODLINESS, THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM THAT HATH CALLED US TO GLORY AND VIRTUE.” 1 Peter 1:3.
Look at the rest of that promise. “BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH, NOTHING WAVERING. FOR HE THAT WAVERETH IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA DRIVEN WITH THE WIND AND TOSSED. FOR LET NOT THAT MAN THINK THAT HE SHALL RECEIVE ANY THING OF THE LORD. A DOUBLE MINDED MAN IS UNSTABLE IN ALL HIS WAYS.” James 1:6-8.
Let me give you a very easy translation of the scripture above. The Lord is saying once you ask Him for wisdom concerning a certain area of your life, don’t doubt that you received it, because the Lord says if you do you are like the waves driven in one direction with your faith and then another and don’t think you will receive an answer to your request. The Bible says that they that come to Him must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. He also says in that same verse that without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6
IT BOILS DOWN TO THIS DO YOU REALLY TRUST GOD? DO YOU REALLY?
Most of you never doubt that at the end of your pay period at work that your employer will have the money he owes you in your bank account. A good portion of you even forget that it is your pay day. You know what, that is faith. Faith in your secular employer.
If you can trust your secular employer that he will pay you on time, why would you ever doubt that God would perform His Word, which is His promise to you?
Then the Lord gives us many verses that back up His promises to us.
For instance this is a great promise to us from God’s Word: “AND THIS IS THE CONFIDENCE THAT WE HAVE IN HIM, THAT, IF WE ASK ANY THING ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE HEARETH US. AND IF WE KNOW THAT HE HEAR US, WHATSOEVER WE ASK, WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE PETITIONS THAT WE DESIRED OF HIM.” 1 John 5:14-15.
We have such a great and mighty God that He not only gives us scriptures of promises to us but He also gives us promises that He will back up everything that Bible of yours says. GOD IS NOT A LIAR.
Then finally I love another scripture, I call it God’s telephone number. “CALL UNTO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER THEE, AND SHOW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH THOU KNOWEST NOT.” JEREMIAH 33:3
DECISIONS, DECISIONS AND DECISIONS. WE MAKE THEM ALL THE TIME, 24/7, FROM THE TIME YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING UNTIL YOU GO TO SLEEP AT NIGHT. NOW YOU CAN REST IN THE FACT THAT GOD WILL BE DELIGHTED TO DIRECT YOU INTO HIS PERFECT TRUTH THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE.
PRAISE HIS MIGHTY NAME THAT MAKES ME WANT TO SHOUT AND ALSO YUMP FOR YOY.
