Living the Word of God

The Lord God Stands By His Word

We all know that the Bible is full of wonderful promises to us from God our Father who loves us greater than our earthly ones do. As it is written: “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Matthew 7:11

How you view those promises determine what you expect and subsequently receive. Know that there is never a shortage for those who belong to the Kingdom of God. The promise as it is written in Philippians 4:19 taken from the New Living Translation (NLT) states: “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”

Do you believe this? Then why do you doubt this scripture working in your everyday life when it comes up against your bills or your plans for the future?

If you study out the battle between the forces of good [Moses] versus evil [Pharaoh] in the Book of Exodus, every curse the Lord God had brought against Pharaoh [through God’s servant (you) Moses] to show the Israelites [everyone who is saved] His mighty powers, did not adversely affect the Christians [Israelites.]

I will make a clear distinction between my people and your people. This miraculous sign will happen tomorrow.’” Exodus 8:23 NLT

You have to make a demand on that promise and stand in faith believing the positive outcome promised by that Word from God to which you place your hopes on. It will happen as long as you are not moved by the contradicting things or events that may happen to try to move you away from believing what God said in His Word.

Every one of the plagues brought against Egypt didn’t affect none of the children of Israel. The only place without hail was the region of Goshen, where the people of Israel lived. Ex 9:26

God made a distinction between those who worship and honor His name and those who have turned their back or hardened their hearts towards receiving the Word.

Even if God determined to do something that will effect where you live or work, you can still petition Him to spare you and bring you into your wealthy place.

The Lord was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and everything in it until Abraham petitioned the Lord to spare the righteous. [If you are the righteous, the Lord God will spare you when you petition Him.]
Meanwhile, the angels questioned Lot. “Do you have any other relatives here in the city?” they asked. “Get them out of this place—your sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else. For we are about to destroy this city completely. The outcry against this place is so great it has reached the LORD, and he has sent us to destroy it.” When they were safely out of the city, one of the angels ordered, “Run for your lives! And don’t look back or stop anywhere in the valley! Escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away!” Genesis 19:12-13 NLT

God decided to take action against sin. Then Lot petitioned the Lord God to spare him and his family.

“Oh no, my lord!” Lot begged. “You have been so gracious to me and saved my life, and you have shown such great kindness. But I cannot go to the mountains. Disaster would catch up to me there, and I would soon die. See, there is a small village nearby. Please let me go there instead; don’t you see how small it is? Then my life will be saved.” “All right,” the angel said, “I will grant your request. I will not destroy the little village. Genesis 19:17-21 NLT

Knowing this now, you have the choice to accept your conditions or change them with an action as simple as believing God. Once you place your belief in Him, stand back and expect God [not you] to give you what you ask for. The manifestation comes according to your belief.

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours 1st Corinthians 3:21
