He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20
Gods words always have purpose. He never speaks ‘off the cuff’. When He speaks, it’s because He has every intention of doing exactly what He says.
You may be wondering, if that’s true, why am I not healed? Have you ever taken a time-released medication? How does that work? It’s released little by little into your system to gain the maximum benefit. You believe it’s working because a doctor gave it to you and you trust in your doctor.
When you read Gods word, it’s like medicine to your flesh and health to all your bones. It’s a ‘time-released’ word. As you read and meditate on His promises, it’s released into your body to do it’s perfect work. Your job is simply to believe God, resist the enemy of fear, doubt and unbelief and stand firm on His promises.
Don’t ever think that just because you don’t see it happening, that it hasn’t already happened. I love what Jesus instructed us in Mark 11:22-24, “Let the faith of God be in you! Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.”
Let the faith of God be in you. What does that look like? He says what He means and means what He says. It’s easy to trust the word of those you’re in real relationship with and you can always trust in God and His Word. Just remember that the end result will probably happen in unexpected ways. God rarely does the same thing twice!
