John 1:1-3 — “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
Too many times, believers depend on what the world says about situations concerning their affairs, their family, their finance, their health, etc, etc. Most importantly, they don’t consider what God has said about the situation they may be experiencing.
We are so quick to focus on the problem and not the answer. The supreme answer to all problems are in the Word of God. Stop getting angry about things that may have happen to you in the past. It may seem like you can’t move forward; begin to see the success that Jesus made available for you on the cross.
Jesus went to the cross, not for Himself, but He took upon Himself our sins: “Who his own self bear our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (1 Peter 2:24). He had made it possible for all of us to be redeemed from sickness and poverty. You are now in a place where you are protected from these things when you make Jesus the Lord Saviour of your life.
Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” According to Colossians 3:3, the old “you” is dead: “For ye are dead, and your new person is hid with Christ in God,” and Ephesians 2:6 says, “And the (Spirit of God) hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”
Now, those things (sickness, diseases, lack, anger, depression, etc, etc.) that come from the enemy can’t find you because the old you is dead and the new you is hidden in Christ, He became your protector.
According to Colossians 2:10, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” You are now physically and spiritually complete in Christ. Since Christ is the head of all principality and power, the enemy has to get permission from you to enter your place of rest, since you are hidden with Christ in God. Jesus made it possible that you would be in a place, that now the devil has to come through Christ and God to get to you, providing that you stay in that place of protection.
Jesus came, died and was resurrected so you and I would experience success in this life. Success is in the Word of God. According to John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” Nothing can happen supernaturally without putting a voice to the Word of God: “My son, attend to my word; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:20-23).
What is on your heart right now that you need the Word to make good for you? “God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not make it good” (Numbers 23:19). Isaiah 55:11 says, “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.” Who is sending the Word out? You are. You have to put a voice to the Word and have faith in God, in the Word.
Mark 11:22-24 says, “Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
This is how you make it all happen. Begin to mediate on the scripture that will produce what you are seeking from God. For example, let’s use the most common problems that we may have all experienced — our finance or our health. The scripture you may use for finance may be: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19), and for health, 2 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bear our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” You now mediate on the scripture that applies to your situation. Isaiah 55:11 says, “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 pleased, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” So when you put a voice to God’s Words, it will manifest what you say and will not come back void.
I dare you to begin mediating on the following scriptures day and night, and you will experience victory where your finances and health are concern.
Psalm 112:3 Psalm 107:19,20
Deuteronomy 8:18 Proverbs 10:11
Proverbs 10:22 Proverbs 12:18
3 John 1:2 1 Peter 2:24
1 John 5:14,15 John 14:13,14
May God bless you as you begin to put a voice to His Words.
