This morning I want to tell you, God's Word works!
Last week I woke up one morning with a sore throat. Then I got a runny nose and a headache. Since my husband had a cold I knew what the symptoms were pointing to.
But I decided I wasn't going to agree with Satan, I was going to agree with God.
Even though I had all the symptoms of a cold, the Word of God clearly says I am healed.
So that is what I said myself.
I also acted on that Word.
I didn't take any medication, because a healthy person doesn't take medication, does she?
I didn't lie down in spite of the headache, because a healthy person doesn't lie down in the middle of the day when there is work to be done, does she?
The symptoms didn't clear up immediately, but it didn't get worse either.
For about four days I had these symptoms. During that time I frequently confessed out loud the Lord as my Healer as well as the truth that I have been healed by the stripes of Jesus (Exodus 15:26 and 1 Peter 2:24).
Within those four days the Word of the Lord worked in my body, manifesting the healing that was already mine as a believer in our Lord Jesus and His finished work on the cross.
As I said, God's Word works. The symptoms are gone.
We all need to start somewhere in our walk of faith. Receiving healing for a cold is a place to start. I mean, if you can't receive healing from the Lord for something as simple as a cold, how will you receive healing for something more serious?
Don't wait until you have a serious problem before you try to believe God. Begin by daily believing Him for whatever you need. This way you will learn how to release your faith and how to walk by faith and not by sight.
As time goes by you will grow in faith and you will find it easier to trust Him and receive from Him.
It doesn't matter who you are, you can trust the Lord, for He is faithful. You can believe every promise He made in the Word and when you are in Christ, you can take those promises as your own, for in Him God already said 'yes' to all His promises.
Now all you need to do is to believe Him, say you believe Him by saying what He says, and act on what you believe.
God's Word works!
