Here’s what I learned in Bible Study last night. Every natural thing is subject to change. No matter what it is, if it’s natural, it has an origin and an ending. Whether your situation is financial, health related, a family issue, employment concerns, or matters involving relationships; any malfunctioning area of your life is subject to change at any time. I hear you talking. “Well I sure wish my “mountain” will hurry and move out of the way.” The problem with that is “wishing” won’t get results.
Remember the Roman Centurion that came to Jesus on behalf of his sick servant. He explained the situation (malfunction) to Jesus and The Lord said “I’ll come and heal him.” Note that this pagan worshipping, non-Jew recognized the authority Jesus had over sickness and disease. He may not have understood Judaism, but he knew about authority because he himself was a man of authority. He told Jesus to “speak the word only” and his servant would be healed. Forget “Come by Here, my Lord. The only thing that kills or turns around malfunctioning things in the earth realm is the word of God. Speaking “the word only” means not adding doubt, fear, and unbelieving statements tagged onto the end of scripture. Things like “by his stripes I’m healed, but it sure doesn’t feel like it right now.” Speak the Word Only!
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.
Be Encouraged. What you are going through has an end.
To paraphrase 2Corinthians 4: 16-18:
“Though it looks like I’m going down, I believe the Word of God, and my inner strength, my faith, is gettting stronger everyday. What I’m going through will only last for a moment, and because of it, I’ll be much better on the other side. So I choose not to look at my circumstances, which are temporary. I look to my expected end through the eyes of faith, which has no limits.”
Remember the Word that you speak on a consistent basis will determine how long your “moment” lasts.
