Believing God's Word
"For I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me" (Acts 27:25; KJV). This was Paul speaking to the sailors on a ship that was caught in a huge storm. An angel from God had spoken to him and told him they would all make it safely to their destination. In Luke chapter 1 (verse 38) we have the account of the angel who appeared to Mary and announced that she would give birth to the Messiah. She also believed God’s word and said to the angel: "be it unto me according to thy word."
We know that Abraham was also someone who took God at his word. In Romans 4:21 we are told that Abraham was: "fully persuaded that, what he had promised,
he was able also to perform".
Then in Luke 7:7 we read about a roman centurion who had a servant that needed healing. Jesus offered to go to his house to heal the man but the centurion said to him: "but say in a word, and my servant shll be healed" and he was. As you can see from all these examples there is great power in the word of God that is believed and acted on in faith.
Take God at his word today, believe it, speak it over your situation and watch God turn things around for you. “Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth” (Luke 18:8)?
