HOLDING ONTO GOD’S WORD

Nov 21, 2023

The reason we believe, trust and look to God is because He is consistent; the same yesterday, today and forever. He does not go back on what He has spoken.

If there is anything you need to doubt, let it be yourself not God. I know what it means to be under pressure but no matter the noise the enemy makes, Jesus has never failed to come through because of His word.

Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word.

Mary sat at the feet of Jesus grasping every word like her life depended on it. That should be the way you treat God’s word and promises; hang on to them.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper [in the thing] for which I sent it.

God’s word has never returned void. This simply means that God’s word will produce the results it has been sent to, in your life. Hold onto It with everything on the inside of you and believe It more than anything else.

Keep your eyes, faith and confidence in the word. The temptation to look away from the word is very high but no matter what the physical environment tells you, hang onto the word; declare, sing and speak the word because God’s word never returns void.

Psalms 105:17-19 He sent a man before them— Joseph—[who] was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him.

Everything that happened to Joseph was contradictory to the word over his life but whatever happened, pushed him towards destiny. He was about to be a king in Canaan land.

God knows what is happening, He knows what He is doing. The best thing you can do is to let gratitude and thanksgiving flow out of your heart whether you understand what is going on or not.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God.

You do not know how God will work it out but He does. Don’t allow your tongue to kill the word you have sown, maintain your confession, keep your eyes on Jesus and let gratitude always flow from your heart.

Remember the word the Lord gave to us: He said in this month of November, He is going to do things that we have never prayed for. God is still in the business of outdoing Himself and I have made up my mind to believe this God to my last breath, no matter what is happening within and around me.

Psalms 89:33-34 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him, Nor allow My faithfulness to fail. My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

What did God show you? What did He tell you? Men may change but God does not change. Don’t take your eyes off Jesus, the written word or the spoken word. Keep your eyes on Him.

Let the word of God be your sustenance; that word will accomplish, profit and bring results in your life. Do not lose confidence because your confidence in the Master will be rewarded.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
