The Word Works!
"For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe."
I Thessalonians 2:13 NKJV
The word works! Hallelujah!
In Lystra a certain man without strength in his feet was sitting, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. The man heard Paul speaking. Paul, observing him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed, said with a loud voice, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And the man leaped and walked!
About a month ago, a dear lady schooling in London read our devotional titled "Orders Have Been Given Concerning You" just before she went for an interview. She had been denied visa before, but there in the hall, waiting for her turn, she remembered the word, "orders have been given concerning your success"; she said a little prayer and then it was her turn. Guess what, she was only asked one question, and without much ado her visa was approved! The word works!
If you receive the word rightly it will always work for you. Paul said that it works effectively in the lives of those who believe. Sometimes it's not visible immediately, but it's working. You can have testimonies everyday! You can have testimonies even now as you're reading this devotional! The word of God is living and powerful! When you get the word into your heart, and then into your mouth, there will surely be results! The word always works! Now, I pray for you; receive your healing, miracles, blessings, testimonies, deliverance in the name of Jesus!
