Trust God’s Word
By two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. Hebrews 6:18
God cannot lie! I think we all can agree on that, but what exactly does that mean? Well, the first thing it means is that His Word (everything that He spoke and recorded for us in the Bible) we can depend on as truth. It also means that every promise He made, He will keep. One of the reasons that He gave us His Word is because He wanted us to hold to the promises and boundaries that He established.
Here in Hebrews, it says that we can anchor our hope in His promises. What does that even look like? So, if you consider that every situation and struggle you come up against in life has a solution in the Word of God, you search for that wisdom in His Word and then hold on to it through the entire struggle.
For example, if you are struggling financially, you go to God’s Word and find the passage that says: “My God will supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”. Then you hang on to that promise through the entire crisis. Every time a wave of doubt, fear and unbelief hits you, you grab tighter to your life preserver of the Word that God promised and remember that He cannot lie and will keep that promise. When you have sickness and disease in your body, you cling to a promise such as Psalm 103 that says He heals all your diseases and hold on to that promise until you are through to the other side of that trouble.
I know it sounds simple, but if God cannot lie, than certainly He wants us to hold on to His unbreakable promises that He has given us in His Word. Otherwise, He wouldn’t have said it and recorded it for us to have.
Lastly, because God has established His Word and given it to us so we can be assured that He will not go against it. This eliminates the mentality that God is God and He is going to do whatever He wants to in my situation. While it is true that God is God, He has already told us what He wants to do in our situation in His Word, and He will not change. His Word is rock solid!!
Today I want to encourage you in whatever your circumstances are, to trust God’s Word! Take some time to press into God and His Word and ask Him to lead you to the promise He has given that you can directly apply to your dilemma. Then, hold on to that Word! Instead of speaking the problem over and over again, speaks God’s promise over and over. When your thoughts go back to the problem and they will, learn to not continue to talk about it, but about the goodness of God and the promise He gave. Let the power of God’s Word become the covering that produces healing to whatever you are going through and apply that covering as protection to every area of your life.
