In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. The Word became flesh made his home among us. John 1:1,2,14
The Word of God is obviously powerful, I mean it is saying here that Jesus Christ is in fact the “Word” that was and is with God in the beginning. And we know the power that Jesus has, so that means that The Words that we speak and think are also powerful. If indeed we have the Spirit of Christ living in us. When we speak and meditate on Gods Word we are giving our Spirit and those who hear Life. We are indeed being good and faithful servants of Our Father.
And when we evil we then are speaking Death into others, and ourselves. I’m not going to dive all the way into this but there is something I want to make very clear to anyone with ears to hear. James tells us in 3:9 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.” We all are guilty of this, and those with His Spirit are convicted and repent of this, hopefully.
But there is another way where the enemy of our souls has slipped in, and that is through prayer and well-meaning sayings. The most recent saying that just makes my mind want to explode every-time I read it on a pretty picture. This saying is :
“We may never know the reason why things happen, but we still must trust”
The best lies are 99%true. People this word NEVER has just sealed the deal that you will in fact NEVER know the reason. NEVER is without wiggle room. God says with Him ALL things are possible, to those who BELIEVE. This well meaning partial truth is what we in fact believe. Jesus tells us if we ask God for ANYTHING in HIS NAME it will surely be given to us. I have personally been given a reason for everything bad that has happened to me. Some were tiny things that gave me a glimmer of peace, others were amazing. Some were instant the longest took almost 13 years to receive, but I did receive it. And so will you, if you claim it and stop speaking and believing that God isn’t capable, or loving enough to reveal part of Hid goodness to you in your grief.
I am not claiming that God will give us the reason in it’s entirety, but He WILL give you enough to grant you peace, His Word says that ALL things He works for GOOD. Trust this and the countless of other promises that God gives us throughout the bible that give HOPE. We have to watch what we say. How we pray, and what we claim for our lives in Christ.
Believe He is a God that anything is possible. Don’t limit what Our Father will do in our lives.
To be continued…possibly.
