“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” –Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
Ignorance is the devil’s playground. He knows if he can keep you from knowing all that belongs to you, he has you. A lack of knowledge results in unbelief—and the devil is right there to take advantage—telling you you’re sick, broke, depressed and a failure. But Satan is overruled by the Word of God. If you know this, you can object to his claims. If you don’t, you’ll buy what the devil is selling and stay right where you are.
Maybe you’re praying for healing today. You say all the right words, “Thank God, I believe I receive…” but inside you’re thinking, I wonder why God isn’t healing me?
Even if you confess you believe you are healed, you can still stagger at the promise of God—believing what your body is telling you instead of the Word of God.
Hebrews 4:11 tells us: “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief” (AKJV).
We must labor! How? By hanging on to the promises of God by faith day after day.
Don’t get casual about the Word. Don’t make the mistake of thinking, Oh I know all that faith stuff. I know how to receive my healing. If you do, you’ll slack off, and one of these days, the devil will catch you unprepared and steal you blind.
Get rid of “what if,” “yeah but,” and “if it be Thy will.” Get in the Word of God until your hope gets crisp, your expectancy gets strong, and you begin to expect the glory to happen.
