What is said is not as important as who said it. The person behind the word you hear determines its effect in your life. The same words spoken by different people in the same situation can never produce the same effects and result this is a very important point for you to note as from now on. When you focus on the word of a man, the personality of that man will determine how much you can hold onto that word. Anytime you hear what God has said or is saying, you can count on it because of the personality of God. When the liar (devil) tells you anything, no matter how close that thing is to the facts on ground, you ought to choose the WORDS of God over that of the devil (liar). The Bible says, "It is impossible for God to lie" also that "God cannot lie", in another place, it says, "God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent, Has He said it and will He not do it?"
problem is not the situation or the condition we are going through, our
problem is the inability to take God at His word and follow Him
blindly. Faith is following God blindly, faith is taking your eyes off
the situation or challenges, it is fixing your eyes on what God has said
and believing that He is able to make it good. Shadrack, Meshack and
Abednego followed God blindly, never considering the fiery funance of
fire, did they burn? When you follow His word because of who He is
rather than considering your situation, you will be pleasantly surprised
at the end of the day, a spectacular miracle will be born in your life
because of it. Peter had a more understanding of this as he walked on
water to go and meet our Lord Jesus Christ, but as soon as he took his
eyes off Jesus and considered the present situation of storms, he sank.
Those who believe operate at the realm of possibilities and the bible
says nothing shall be impossible to anyone who believes, do you?
is my point in all these? Very simple, in every situation, there are
voices speaking to you, some voices are saying one thing and others are
saying some other things, these are the voices of man, voices of
circumstances, voice of the devil or voice of God, which voice are you
to follow? The voice of circumstancial evidence or the voice of faith?
When you are going through stuffs, the circustances around always speaks
with the voice of doubt and discouragement, people will always show you
reasons why you should give up. Many a time, people and events will
show you those who attempted to go against the tide of circumstancial
evidence and perish or die and many times this has caused fear and made
many to stop trying.
Remeber this always, what is said
is not as important as who said it. If for example, circumstances said
that you will die in this sickness. Who said it? Either devil or
circumstances. what is the word said? That you will die. I am affirming
to you that what is said is not as important as who said it, so it means
that you should shift your focus away from what is said and rebuke the
one who said it, pure and simple. Men of God who excel do not struggle
with what the devil has said they simply rebuke the devil who said it.
Many people spend all their lives focusing on what is said instead of
battling with the one who said it. Remember, Jesus said, "We are not
fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers
and so on. When you focus on what is said, it will come to pass, but
when you rebuke the one who said it and rebuke the words said, you shall
triumph, it is the simple truth of the Word of God, I hope I have
spoken to your heart, be blessed and remain blessed.
