I love God, and I love God’s word, written or spoken.
With that i say “hello darling reader, It’s friday!”
As a child, i was made to do a memory verse ‘medley’, it was actually a combination of different bible verses that talk about the word of God. I dont think i really grasped the importance then, but thinking back to all those verses, i must say the word of God is awesome.
I’ve come to realise something about my life, in different seasons, there’s always a word from God that keeps me focused, that keeps me strong, that holds me up, that makes me get out of bed when all i want to do is pull the covers over my head and cry. One time when i was in plenty trouble, the word from God was “this too shall pass” I held strongly to those words and they were proved true, in another season, God’s word to me was “this will end in praise” and as you very well guessed, it did! At some other point, My little sister was in a fix and while praying for her the word of God to me was “God is bringing beauty from ashes” and he did.
God says this about his word,
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.
Isaiah 55: 10-11 MSG
It’s quite a picture isn’t it? He describes his word like a man on a mission, who won’t return till the mission is accomplished (There’s no Mission Impossible with God’s Word😊). God’s word isn’t sent to make an announcement, or better put, God doesn’t cast news, He doesn’t speak for the sake of informing us about our present happenings, NO! He speaks to change our present happenings to what they SHOULD be.
I’m in an interesting season presently, not interesting because it is fun but because it’s a bit unusual, and the word of God to me this time is “IT IS GOOD”. I want to roll my eyes and say “yea, right 😕” because things aren’t looking to good for me in various areas, but yet God says emphatically It is good, so who am i to say otherwise? The maker of life itself has sent his word on an assigment, everything else fades, even my so called reality pales compared to the reality of his word. So the more things go South (instead of North) the more i smile (as difficult as that is) and i repeat to my breaking heart, IT IS GOOD, because that’s God’s word and it (the Word) will do what He (My heavenly father) says.
I love God’s word, I love how it comes and makes a mockery of hopless situations, even the worst of them. Sarah in the bible was Barren for many, many years, she was past the age of child bearing, it was indeed a hopless, hopeless situation but God’s word to her was this “by this time next year, you would have a son” and she did! As far as God has said it, it IS so. Let man say otherwise, let situations look otherwise, let your body feel otherwise, God’s word still trumps all these. I mean, he SPOKE the earth into form!
The word is meant for more than memory verses. It’s meant to DO things. I’m holding on to his word because it is true, believing it in my heart and speaking it with my mouth and when things seem not to change, I’d speak louder, because God’s word CHANGES things, I know, because I’ve seen it.
So what is God saying to you?
