For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged 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 (Hebrews 4:12)
So powerfully was the word of God increasing and prevailing. Acts 19:20
So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed. Acts 19:20 (KJV)
Our opening scriptures made us to know that the word of God has power and it is, infallible, and immutable, it is capable of producing unbeatable results when you believe, confess, and act upon it as truth. In this, 2Corinthians 2:14 says; “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” This means no matter what comes your way, insist that you’re triumphant always, and in all things; stand your grounds in faith—against all odds—maintaining that you’re a victor in Christ Jesus. Some Christians have the notion that “Whatever will be, will be”; and they’re wrong. God didn’t leave us at the mercy of the devil or the circumstances of life. He didn’t leave things to chance. Not once did He tell us in the Scriptures, “Whatever will be, will be.” That’s what the devil would rather have people think, so they won’t have to do anything about their situation. But we’re smarter than that! We’re Word practitioners. We act the Word. God gave us His Word to live by, and to use in creating our glorious and triumphant lives. So, it’s your responsibility to use the Word; to work the Word. Philippians 2:12 says, “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”
This was what Abraham did. In Genesis 17:5, the Lord said to him, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.” At this time, Abraham was nearly a hundred years old, and didn’t have any child, but he believed and acted on the Word (Read Romans 4:17-21)! He didn’t stagger at the promise of God, through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God!
The change you desire in your finances, health, spiritual attainment and family depend on you, not God. Act on the Word. Insist that there’s going to be only one outcome: what the Word of God says!
Matthew 8:5-10 says “As Jesus went into Capernaum, a [a]centurion came up to Him, begging Him [for help], 6 and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, with intense and terrible, tormenting pain.” 7 Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 But the centurion replied to Him, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man subject to authority [of a higher rank], with soldiers subject to me; and I say to one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard this, He was amazed and said to those who were following Him, “I tell you truthfully, I have not found such great faith [as this] with anyone in Israel”.(AMP)
Remember the centurion soldier knew the important of the word of God that is why he told Jesus that he should not border coming to his house to heal the servant, rather He should speak the word. The centurion soldier was quite smart to recognize that Jesus is the word standing before him, so he saw what he needed, even as John calls Jesus “the word of God” (John 1:1) Hallelujah! So powerfully was the word of God increasing and prevailing.
May the Lord grant you understanding and grace to apply His word positively in your life daily in Jesus name. Amen.
