“The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me! I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E!”
We all are familiar with this catchy tune we grew up singing too in church. It was and still is one of my all-time favorite children’s songs I learned. Now as an adult I look back on the song and realized the real truth in the song. When you are a kid, they teach you really catchy tunes to remember, often leaving us completely blinded that there is a meaning and truth in this song.
I stand alone on the Word of God
So I had to sit back and ask myself what it means… and what does this look like in my everyday life? I often worry with how situations that I struggle with will turn out. I would ask God how He was going to take care of this situations. All I can do is look back and see how foolish I was.
First off, I was taking things into my own hands trying to control the outcome. Second, I was not relying on God nor on God’s word. All what I wanted to do was speak death over my situation, and be negative.
Mark 11:22-24:”And Jesus answered them, ‘Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, who-ever says to this mountain, be taken up and thrown into the seas,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believers that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
- Have faith in God
There is one thing I struggled with in all those times I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. My flesh goes back to sinking into a hole of doubting God and speaking death in my situations. But Jesus said, “Have faith.” Faith is seeing without belief. I pray that we will be able to tell our mountains today to be thrown into the sea (in this metaphor, the metaphor represents what seems impossible). So today, as I throw my mountains in the sea, I encourage you to do the same.
- Pray, believing that you have received it.
Proverbs 18:21 says that death and life are in the power of the tongue. I have learned that there is power in my tongue. I can either speak death over my situations or life. A dear friend of mine once pointed out the truth to me. She said, “Katie, you have to stop speaking death into your situation. If you keep speaking death it’s not going to happen. Instead give it to God, speak truth over every situation you have, and have faith that it will come true.”
She was absolutely right. I can either speak death in my impossible situations, or I can speak truth over them, knowing I serve a God with whom nothing is impossible. So I encourage you to join me in this journey of speaking life over each situation you may be facing. Speak truth over it because we stand alone on the Word of God. I am so thankful for the Word of God that I can to speak life in my situations. You can be too. Remember, He is a Promise Maker and keeper, not a promise breaker.
“But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
