In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(John 1:1, emphases added)
Do you want to defeat the adversary? Then, understand there’s a connection between the Word and faith that shouldn’t be overlooked. Okay, you might already know this, but for me, this was groundbreaking when the Holy Spirit revealed this to my spirit; I’ll explain.
We often hear, or even we might say, things like, “I need more faith.” But I’m learning that we don’t need our faith to increase, per se, to do miraculous acts; we need to change the overpowering thoughts we have about the “mountains” in our lives and put our confidence in the Word will perform what is impossible for man. That should take the pressure off when trying to believe the inconceivable because we know there’s nothing too hard for God. Zechariah 4:6 teaches us “it’s” going to be done by God’s power, not by our own efforts.
I don’t need more faith; I need to learn more Word to channel my belief through.
As we consistently study the Word, trust forms, and faith emerges.
Over the years, the Holy Spirit has strongly motivated me to study the Scriptures. Recently, I asked Him to teach me how to effectively activate the power of the Word. That’s when He gave me the revelation about the Word-faith connection.
As a result, I pray God’s Word back to Him: “Lord, You said…”
Don’t waste time worrying about your problems—use that time to strategize a Word plan of attack.
The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
11 It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it (Isaiah 55:10-11 NLT).
Make the Word-faith connection!
