For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience).”
James 1:23-25 AMPC
The enemy get its way in our lives when we focus on our circumstances instead of God’s Word. Our circumstances will never change by meditating on it or worrying about it. There is nothing that comes our way without God’s provision for escape. And the provision for escape are the promises of God for our lives.
Another thing that we must know is ,the solution to our circumstances is God’s Word. This is the reason why we make God’s Word our meditation and not our circumstances. God’s Word is who we are and what we are made up of.
Also, the Word of God is not just a defensive weapon against the wiles of satan but it is an offfensive weapon.
Therefore, we must persevere in looking into God’s word and make it our lifestyle and by so doing our circumstances will realign to what the Word is saying. We can only confess what we meditate on and meditation gives birth to our actions. In other words, if you don’t like what you see, change it by saying what you want to see.
We must learn to speak God’s word into our circumstance to see it change.
A great example for this;
The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.” Genesis 1:2-3 AMPC
When God spoke, the darkness turn into light. God said what He wants to see and not circumstances. And immediately there was a change.
Today remember God’s Word and not your circumstances. Hold fast to your confession faith in God’s word and it will produce for itself what it talks about.
For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [II Cor. 9:10.] So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11 AMPC
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father thank You for Your Word. Help me by Your Spirit to hold fast to Your Word not my circumstances in Jesus name. Amen
