Recently, a song entitled “Man of Your Word” caught my attention. The writer noted in the lyrics that we have confidence that God will certainly finish what he started. Part of the hook states a simple phrase, “If you said it we believe it.” Over the course of life many of us have been able to attest to the fact that God answers prayers and God, indeed is a faithful way maker.
On the other hand we’ve always had to face times that we weren’t too sure if things would ever change. I wanted to take a moment to encourage your faith today. I believe it’s important to be reminded we are not defined by where we are currently standing. Your NOW is certainly NOT your forever. Your circumstances are not the definition of your life. You not only have the ability to change your current conditions but our God who holds the whole world with omnipotent hands, desires to make you prosper in wealth and health.
John 16:33 says “…In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” Remember that you are an overcomer and The Lord, is what this songs describes as a “man of his word”. I don’t believe this song intends to limit God to what a “man’ can do. But on a human level if a person is referred to as a man of his word, we immediately associate trust and reliability with this person. All the writer is saying is, If God has made you a promise, He will keep the promise. My friend, You are what God says you are!
I pray for your strength today. I pray you are reminded that God is able to do anything but fail. I pray that you are reminded that no matter how much people would like to diminish your value, you know that you are powerful, gifted and unlimited of you can achieve. I pray that you let faith walk before you today. I pray that you speak in faith to every mountain and sea in front of you knowing where you are, is not where you will stay.
Have a Blessed Day,
Aquila T Carmon
