Summary: And that's why when you know the word... Or at least are willing search Gods word For your answer... you can give it right back to him and remind him what you do have and what God's Word says you have! Amen??
Whose Report Do You Believe?
In the day and age we live...we hear a lot
Of different reports of the news that is happening around the world...
Some would have us believe things are great and normal and that all is going well.
Others would have you believe the exact opposite...and sometimes uncertainty creeps in and doubt rises up to the point...
No one knows who to believe.
TBS in the last days...
There would wars and rumors of wars
Earthquakes in diverse places
Things would certainly be happening
But the end would not be yet
There is one thing always for sure and that you can depend on...the Written Word of God
And the report that He has provided for us!!
Matthew 4:4 NKJ
4…He [Jesus] answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
Matt 4:4 MSG
4Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: "It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth."
How often do you think the average person spends time reading God's word?
Illus. LifeWay Research surveyed more than 2,900 Protestant churchgoers and found that while 90 percent "desire to please and honor Jesus in all I do," only 19 percent personally read the Bible every day.
all these things have at least one common denominator…
They are all found in the word of God, the Bible
Psalm 119 says thy word have I hid in my heart… That I might not sin against thee
When temptation comes...what do you combat it with? The Word of God!! Amen??
When the devil tempted Jesus...this is
what Jesus did, He turned to the Word of God and said, “It is written… It is written… It is written…”
Matthew 4: 7, 10 NKJ
7. Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God.
10. Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.
Likewise, should the devil remind you of anything, say what God’s Word says:
Remind him often “It is written!! And this is what the word of God says about this situation...
If you don't know the word about a certain situation you may encounter… Look it up! And if you can't find it on your own… Google it!
A lot of people don't believe healing is for today…
I want you to know something...Satan has been broadcasting that lie
anyway he can, by any means he can from the beginning of time
What do you suppose the Bible says about healing?
Who's report you believe...
Will certainly be determined by what you read or listen to...
Isaiah 53:5 NKJ
5. But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24 NKJ
24. who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
You know Its ok if you tell God, “I have Your Word for it....
In fact he loves it when you remind him of what his word says...
I am standing on Your Word and I’m gonna trust you,
I‘m going to rest in you.. Because That’s what the word says to do...
when you’ve done what you know to do, its time to stand on the word!
If only we would learn to do that sooner rather than later...
it would save us so much time and grief, over every situation
beyond our control...which is a let me see… Every situation
If you're not already… You need to Get in agreement with Gods word.
I’m Not trying to be healed, but I am healed, my healing has already happened on the cross when Jesus completed His work, He said it is finished.
Lord, I don’t care what this body says, I know it hurts, but it has to line up with Your Word because by Jesus’ stripes I am healed!
Sometimes.... Okay I'm going to go out on a limb here and say most times…
we let the pain in our body, keep us from receiving our miracle!
The accuser will tell you a lots of things, but the bible says your body is a temple of God, and where God lives...power resides and healing
and every other promise God has ever made..lives there too!
I will say one thing about the devil...he is relentless!
he is constantly 24 hours a day reminding you...
what you don't have and what you can't have!
