Partner Letter June
“Business is bad”
“I have such a bad migraine”
“This country is going to the dogs”
I do not like to start off a letter with bad confessions! However, I have been amazed at how many Christians have been saying things similar to the statements above. Particularly if we believe what Jesus said in Mark 11:23,
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Our words are significant in our lives. Jesus said that we have what we say! Of course we do not want to just reverse what we have been saying…”I am not sick”…because we may well be experiencing symptoms. However, the way we exterminate darkness is by turning on the light.
Jesus said that His words are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). And the Word of God tells us in Psalm 107:20 that,
He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
The purpose of the Word of God is not only to reveal to us who He is, but it also carries the power to accomplish what He sent it for (Isaiah 55:11).
So, how does the Word accomplish what it was sent for? When it is received by a believer, believed in the heart and then spoken out loud out of the heart of faith.
Once again, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
Instead of releasing words of destruction that reaffirm the situation I may well be going through, we determine to set time aside to meditate in the Word of God with scriptures that speak about our deliverance from the circumstance that we are facing.
My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19),
By Jesus stripes you have been healed (1 Peter 2:24) and
When we humble ourselves and pray, He will heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
As I read and speak these words faith rises in my heart. I believe that God watches over His Word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12). When I am in this place and attitude of faith…the spirit of faith, if someone asks how it is going I will answer,
“Praise God, I believe my business is doing well”
“By His stripes I am healed, and walk in the divine life of God”
“I have great hope for our country. I see it blessed and prosperous where multitudes are coming to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour!”
By the Spirit of God, I want to encourage you…I know that sometimes we face horrible and difficult situations. However, the Word of God is still true. Let’s stay focussed on His Word and declare it with boldness. This gives our Lord opportunity to move on our behalf.
You will see the supernatural manifestations of our God and experience supernatural victory!
We love you dearly and pray for you every day.
Remember…you are blessed!
Jesus is Lord,
