Greetings and love to you in Christ Jesus! Be encouraged and blessed this day as you read the Word God has for you. I encourage you to allow this Word to work in your life, for it is truly alive, creative and powerful!!
Faith in the Word As Our Truth
Faith is an integral (necessary for completeness) part of our lives; both spiritual and physical! For without faith we can’t please our Father, or live the Kingdom life effectively here on earth as it is in heaven!! Selah!
I am reminded each day as I hear some of the news and what is happening all around the world, as I hear friends talk about what is going on in their lives and of course living my own life ~ how very important it is to know our truth! Life can be very challenging and we must know the difference between the facts, as we see and hear them, and the truth, God’s Word, as we see, receive and believe by faith! God’s Word is our truth and the truth is what we must focus our thoughts on and not the facts! For the facts as we listen to them change many times during the days and months. Those facts may cause you worry, fear and anxiety which in turn may cause you physical, emotional and/or mental distress. Not what God has planned for you at all! Keep your focus on His promises, on His direction, on His leading and extend your faith knowing He is forever faithful!
For the Word never changes; it remains the same. That is why our faith is in God and the Word ~ our truth!!
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.”
Now let us look at Proverbs 4:20-22 “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
This scripture is so rich and full of instruction on how to keep our bodies healthy and live in God’s divine health. But, as we look at it again we also see God’s pathway for our whole life ~ spirit, soul and body. This scripture is telling us; not only does the Word bring health to our flesh, our bodies, but it brings health and life to our soul! Remember, your soul is your mind, will and emotions! Healthy bodies (flesh) and healthy souls (mind, will and emotions). Of course as born again Christians your spirit is already made perfect! Yes and amen!
Be encouraged today that your Father loves you and has provided for you to live a healthy, whole life as you follow your truth into the Kingdom life which He has provided. Knowing, you are in this world but not of this world!
It is all about faith in the Word!
