Here’s a thought to carry you through the days ahead:
John 1:1 (NIV)
Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. [Someone must speak it in order to hear.]
1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
Hebrews 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Proverbs 30:5 Every Word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God.
Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the Word of God, and keep it.
Acts 4:31 … and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness.
Acts 12:24 But the Word of God grew and multiplied.
2 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water …
Father, as your word says, so let us speak and believe for it is not written that You spoke into existence heaven and earth, and divided the light from the darkness? It is not also written that we are as You are? It is not also written that you gave Your disciples the power to heal and cast out demons and that we are whole and complete in Christ Jesus who is the head of every power and authority and that the grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever? As You speak, Lord, for is it not written that You our triune Jehovah are the same yesterday, and today and forever – shall we not also boldly speak Your Word for it is not written that Your word is quick and powerful and that we should not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God?
Father, Your Word is truth and as it is written in Isaiah 14:2-4 “The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand” and as in Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” and so Your Word shall be for is not Your Word life to those who speak it? Father, direct our path. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
