You must have noticed that the status of a man determines the trust you put in him and his word. Consider this; if a wealthy man in your neighbourhood meets you someday and promises that he would give you a million naira the following week_ you would not only believe him, but you would even start thanking him in advance.
But what if a poor man that has often depended on you for food promises you the same amount? Won’t you laugh so widely before you know he could get hurt?
So is God with his word. God is greater than the greatest man in the world today; the accumulation of the wealth of all the richest men in the world today means less than a penny to God. He is all powerful, all sufficient. You see, I do not fathom why we fail to believe him sometimes.
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.”
What God can do, his word can do. The book of John chapter 1 tells us of the existence of God and His word, confirming His word is everything and He. So, no matter the situation you are or the hardship you are experiencing today_ I beat my chest that His word is more than able to settle things for you.
God created all things through His word. Hebrews 11:3_ “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God…” It is crystal clear that everything we see and admire in the world today was created by God’s word. If his word could create the whole universe, it can change your life and transform situations for you. His word is inerrant, infallible and unchangeable.
Certain Deeds of His Word
1. His word reveals our Salvation_ 1 Peter 1:10-11. Since ages past, the Prophets of God has, through the Holy Spirit, prophesied of the salvation that was to come through Jesus Christ. Moreover, everything done by Jesus to save us is written in the word of God.
2. His word saved us_ 1 Peter 1:23_ “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” KJV.
3. His word sanctifies: John 15:3, 17:17. The word of God is all we need to be made clean. The truth we get from the word of God, helps us to live a life of sanctification and consecration.
4. We are kept by the word. Revelation 3:10. Jesus promised the church of Philadelphia that since they have kept His word with patience, he would also keep them from the hour of temptation.
