Taking God At His Word

There has been a common theme over the course of my walk with God. That being, he desires us to take him at his word. Over and over we are put in positions that require us to put hope in the things unseen. We need ever-increasing faith. Faith is God’s warranty that what he has said will come to pass. It is putting complete hope and trust in God himself. Somewhere along the way, we allow fear and doubt creep in. I have learned that these doubts and fears do not always look like themselves, they are often disguised as something else. Such as, impatience growing because it hasn’t happened yet or expecting things to go one way and it goes another way.

There are two people in the Word of God that the Holy Spirit has brought to my attention that took him at his word, Mary (the Mother of Jesus) and the Centurion found in Luke 7. Both of these people said one phrase in two different ways.

“Then Mary said, β€œBehold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.” -Luke 1:38 NKJV

That is why I didn’t even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.” -Luke 7:7 CSB

Say the word.

Let it be done to me according to your word.

I have been treated for mental illness that I was told would never go away, but I was challenged to take God at his word. Now I have been set free, healed, delivered from what oppressed me for almost 4 years. Why? I took God at his word. I was told we would never conceive a baby without fertility treatments. Yet, the Lord promised me that we would get pregnant in January. He was once again faithful to his word. There have been times where we did not know where money was going to come from after we were in two car accidents. Because we took God at his word that he rebukes the devour and opens the floodgates of heaven and will pour out a blessing there is not room enough to receive as we tithe our first-fruits…We now have two cars paid off in our driveway and lack nothing. Just like he spoke through is word, all came to pass.

So many times we can put God in a humanistic box. We think because God did not do it yet, he does not want to do it. When the truth of his word says if he gave us Jesus, what won’t he gives us? He does not give us anything reluctantly and surely if we ask him for bread he will not give us a stone. Many of these doubts and lies come from people when they have let us down. We automatically see God as someone who could fail us or maybe does not want to do what he said he would do. We put him in a humanistic box when really he is a Good Father and he will never let us down, nor fail us.

Rest assured, if his word SAYS it, it IS his WILL for it to happen in your life. We must interrogate our thoughts as they come in. If they do not line up with what God has promised, make them obedient to Christ. The word of God is our weapons for the tactics of the enemy that try to make us doubt God’s goodness. The sword of the Spirit is the Word Of God. Do not think it is a concidence that the enemy works hard to make the bible seem like just a book. He knows that the name Jesus has more power than he could ever imitate. The devil knows that when you take God at his word, there is nothing that can hinder you. Then you are walking in authority as God has called you to. There are several more instances throughout the Word of God where we are told the power of the Word of God.

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” -Isaiah 55:11 KJV

“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”” -Luke 1:45 NKJV

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” -Hebrews 10:23 NLT

Over and over again we are met with God’s faithfulness. We must refuse to partner with doubt, fear, or anything else that is trying to make us waver. We must take God at his word, understanding he never breaks a promise that he has spoken.

What are you putting faith ON right now? WHO are you putting faith IN?

Faith is God’s warranty that he will do what he said he will do! Unlike worldly warranty’s, we have full access through our forerunner Jesus Christ! What has been promised has already been sealed through the blood of Jesus. He has went ahead and given us the victory.

Go before God with expectancy. He will do things in an order that you cannot comprehend. And no, things are not always going to be easy. However, he won’t ever break his promise. Place your expectancy in HIM. Release the need for control of how you think it may happen and be obedient one hour at a time. He is the one directing your steps. Above all else, never be ashamed, afraid, or reluctant for taking God at his word.

God is not a man, so he does not lie.
    He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
    Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Numbers 23:19 NLT

Why Wait (Devotional)

Seasons of waiting are full of what seems to be wasted time. But, what if we have the wrong perspective? When you think about it, thinking God is wasting time is silly when you remember HE is the one who created it in the first place.

When we are in a season of waiting, we are given an opportunity to deepen our understanding of God’s faithfulness and love. It is also in seasons of waiting where our faith is challenged and what is in our hearts is truly revealed. Instead of enduring the season of waiting, what if we embraced the one who created the season in the first place?

When you are standing in faith during a time of waiting, it is important to remember God’s faithfulness. When we have our focus set on the things of heaven we can see God is not a man that he can lie and we can also see that God does everything out of the abundance of his love.

If God gave us what we wanted all the time, believe it or not many things would be detrimental to us and everyone around us. Do you remember a time thanking God for not giving you what you wanted? Yeah, me too.

God loves us so much that he doesn’t give us something until the time is right. Rather than enduring the wait, understand it is preparation done out of the abundance of his love.

Scripture To Chew On:

  • Hebrews 10:38
  • Habakkuk 2:2-4
  • Psalm 130:5
  • Proverbs 16:9
  • Colossians 3:2

Claim What Is Already Yours (Devotion)

There is life and death in the power of the tongueπŸ‘…
This is why it is so important to SPEAK πŸ—― what God has promised youπŸ’¬
Claim what is already yours in the heavenly kingdomπŸ‘†
Speak the promises of God through faith [God’s warranty of what is ‘sure to come’] and perseverance [unwavering and steadfastness], know he who promised surely cannot lie! πŸ‘
πŸ’₯It’s time for Abba’s children to claim the peace that is not of the world, the healing, development of the gifts of the Spirit, loved one’s salvation, the promotion, the vision, *enter promise here*πŸ’₯

A harvest is coming!

Plant those seeds and let the river of living water bring the growth!!!

*____* is GOING to COME to PASS!

When you are waiting on God’s promises to come to pass, more often than not, we are tempted to look at what hasn’t happened rather than focusing on WHO gave us the promise in the first place. When we focus on what we can see, a sickness or disease, a lost family member, a empty womb, *enter your circumstance here*, our emotions come raging in like a flood and we lose our eternal focus.

I am a Christian that is ALL for feeling your emotions and acknowledging them. Jesus walked in our shoes and knows exactly what we are going through and there is a reason in Psalms that he tells us that he has all our tears in a bottle. We have a God that can sympathize. Not only can he sympathize, but he cares. He cares so much that he wants you to lay down what you are feeling so he can exchange it with his yoke which is light and filled with his truth.

Understand that if things have not seemed to come to pass, things are not over.


Know that if it seems like everything is crumbling around you, that there is no such thing as defeat in the Kingdom of God! You are more than a conqueror and victorious through Jesus Christ!

If you are waiting on a promise, remind yourself of how he has been faithful every single time in the past. Praise him for the promise that is GOING to come to pass. Like a thank you note in advance for what is about to come!
As this verse in Hebrews states, follow those that were PATIENT and STAYED IN FAITH until the promise was fulfilled. (Hebrews 11 is a great chapter for this! But I am sure you have some heroes of faith somewhere near you!)

Being patient and standing in faith are two things that can only been done through the power of the Holy Spirit! Being patient actually means long-suffering, endurance, perseverance, and steadfastness. While faith is “God’s warranty” that what he said will come to pass IS going to pass!

Remember not to put your trust or praise in the wrong place. God is a God who can make the impossible, possible. He is making things happen that you cannot see yet. TRUST IN HIM. Praise him for WHO he is, WHAT he has already done, and WHAT is GOING to come to pass.

Further Scripture Study:

  • Hebrews 11
  • Matthew 21:22
  • Mark 11:22-24
  • Proverbs 3:5-6
  • Numbers 23:19
  • Hebrews 6:10-20

Living God (Devotional)

God is known as the “Living God”πŸ₯°
We see this in several places throughout scripture (Acts 14:15, Matthew 16:16, Psalm 42:2, Psalm 84:2)πŸ“–
Living is defined as: to live, be among the living, be alive (not lifeless, not deadπŸ’₯
There is not a single moment where God is lifeless or not working everything out for your good. There is not a moment he is not moving! πŸ™Œ
There may be moments in your walk where he has asked you to be still and simply trust…but know he is LIVING, MOVING, and WORKING on your behalf!πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ’œ
I am so thankful for God and that he responds to our call for help, praises, and even when we just want to talk. πŸ₯°
Our walk with God is a relationship! He speaks and acts! πŸ‘πŸ™
God is not lifeless.
He is responsive.
He is living! πŸ™πŸ’œπŸ™Œ
