Take God at His Word
45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. Luke 1:45
12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:12
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. Isaiah 55:11
What does it look like when God performs his word? The word performance here actually means a completing, perfecting, fulfillment or accomplishment. When God is watching over His Word to perform it, means that He not only speaks that Word but follows it through until the manifestation.
It’s almost like a vessel leaving its port with a destination in mind. The two sure things are the place of launch and the place of landing. What however, is unpredictable is what can happen on the journey. Often when we receive a Word or a promise from God, initially we are excited and full of faith about that Word. However the journey of that Word to manifestation often rattles our faith. I believe we don’t usually doubt God, but often second guess whether or not we heard it correctly. Did God really mean this Word for me?
I am assured of one thing God will go to great lengths to “watch over” His Word. It’s more than a fulfillment, it’s a performance. He will fight fear, doubt, and the enemies that try to devour that promise from growing inside of us.
What has God spoken to you? What promises has He put inside of your heart? I would like to challenge your faith to keep rehearsing those things. God is not only the source behind those promises, but He is the power in front of them. He will watch over, and carry that Word from its launching point to its destination.
Take God at His Word.
