Topic: Just A Word Mixed With Faith [07/09/16]
The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. Matthew 8:8. Read: Psalms 107:20
Power in God's Word cannot be overemphasised. God's Word carry enormous power that the devil and his demons cannot resist. Jesus overcame the devil with the Word "It's written". Matt 4. The Bible in Heb 4:12 says, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart". Just a word is enough to settle every disrupting area in your life, family, career, business and ministry. In spite of this all powerful Word of God, why does it not work for some people? Apart from sin, lack of faith in the Word of God paralyses the potent power in God's Word. The Israelites couldn't enter their rest because God's Word was not mixed with faith in their hearts.
For God's Word to work for you, it must be mixed with faith in your heart and be expressed through your mouth. The centurion said to Jesus, speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. And it was so. Dare to believe God's Word! God's Word mixed with faith gives you rest all-round.
* Until God's Word in your heart is mixed with faith and expressed through your mouth, a life of defeat is inevitable.
