"Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it" (Psalm 119:140 KJV)
God’s Word is God’s creative material. Its power is unlimited. The Word created all things, and is effective today as ever. His Word to you at any time in your life, regarding any situation, is all you need.
Think about what He did with King Solomon; how did God make him the wisest man that ever lived, until Jesus? It was with words! He appeared to Solomon in a dream by night and asked him, “What do you want?”
Solomon asked for wisdom and understanding (1 Kings 3:8-9). God didn’t “open” Solomon’s brain to deposit wisdom inside; all He said was, “Solomon, you have it!” He said to him, “Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee” (1 Kings 3:12). Blessed be God!
The moment Solomon received those words, they became to him and in him what God said. Wisdom and an understanding heart were imparted to the man. He did the same with Abraham; He said,“…thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee” (Genesis 17:5).
Abraham had no children, because his wife was barren, but God said “Your name is now Abraham, because I have made you a father of many.” From then on, it didn’t make any difference what the physical circumstances were; he refused to consider his aged body or Sarah’s dead womb and began to confess what God had said about him. His Word to you is all that matters; that’s your victory.
Read Romans 4:19-20; it says, “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God”. That’s how it works: when God says it, and you respond by affirming the same thing, His Word to you becomes; it prevails in your life and circumstances. Hallelujah!
"Through the Word, my spirit is enlightened; I have insight into mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom. I’m unconquerable, because the Word of God is my life, producing in me what it says. I’m strengthened by the Word today, to reign and rule over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."
