Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:19-20).
Someone says “I’ve been praying to God to help me out of my situation, but nothing has changed!” Well, it’s your responsibility, not God’s to effect a change in that situation by proclaiming the Word of faith. God’s responsibility is to send you His Word; His Word is the ingredient you require for change. The Bible says in Psalm 107:20, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
God saves, heals, transforms and delivers through His Word. His Word is dependable, and you can apply it to every circumstance of life. No matter how terrible your condition may look, God’s Word can work for you and bring about the change you need. Even if you wanted things to go from good to better or better to best, God’s Word can still work for you. The Bible says, “For the word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing and effective]…” (Hebrews 4:12 AMP).
That means God’s Word has the inherent power to cause the required change in your circumstance. When you receive the Word into your spirit, it produces in your life what it talks about. For example, if you receive God’s Word on healing and act on it, it’ll produce healing in you; in the same way, your finances will be improved when you act on God’s Word concerning your finances.
Never become scared or discouraged by the enormity of any challenge. Don’t surrender to a life of fear, failure and complaints. Rather, devote quality time to studying God’s Word, especially in the area where you require a change. But don’t stop there; meditate on the Word and speak faith-filled words and everything about you will catapult to excellence.
