There may be promises God made you as a young boy or girl, or promises he made you as an older man or woman. God honors His Word. It is not your job to question when God is going to honor His Word; it is your job to walk in faith and know He meant it. The devil curses and calls things that aren’t as though they were, God blesses and calls things that aren’t as though they were. So, when you say, ‘I’m sick and tired,’ you are going to be sick and tired. If you say, ‘I am blessed and healthy,’ you are going to be blessed and healthy. Learn to change your words. The devil calls things that aren’t as though they were, but he does it with cursing. God calls things that aren’t as though they were, but he does it with a blessing. Which one are you going to flow in? Are you going to walk in life, or are you going to walk in death?
“For I did not speak on my initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.” John 12:49 NASB
Jesus only speaks the words His Father says. You need to learn to speak good things over your life. Malachi 3:8-11 talks about tithing. It says if you tithe, then God will rebuke the devourer for you. This is one time where God is saying, move over baby, I’ve got your back! Then it goes into verse 13 and says, you have been arrogant against me. It is talking about tithers. If you are not tithing, then you have nowhere to stand. I know people who will hold their tithe checks for weeks before giving it. I give mine the moment my paycheck hits my bank account. Why? Because I’ve got to get that seed in the soil so God can rebuke the devourer. We know the devil is quick to come after us, so let’s be quick to get our protection up. Get your tithe and offering in the ground quickly and speak the Word over it. Only one place in the Bible does God tell us we have a right to test Him, and it is in our giving. Don’t let your words get arrogant against God.
“The one who is taught the Word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him.” Galatians 6:6 NASB
He is saying, so, if somebody is teaching you the Word, then you should share back with him all good things. You should give an offering to your pastor, to the person that feeds you.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7 NASB
If you sow into your wife strife, negativity to her self-esteem, then that is what you are going to get. What do you sow into your children? Reap and sow God’s Word. God’s Word is the truth. The Bible can feed you and make you whole. It can bless your marriage and your relationships. It can bless your job. The Bible and the words in it are the most important thing in the world. God’s Word is more vital than blood, oxygen, food, or water. Because God’s Word can provide all those things, fix all those things, and sustain you.
