And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Luke 1:45 KJV)

Many times I receive desperate requests for prayer to deal with admittedly difficult situations. It is obvious that people would have tried different avenues to get things to work. Sometimes it’s a plea for a job, a stubborn illness, children that have rebelled, sleeplessness to mention a few.

The word of God holds eternal value. One can depend on it anytime. There is only one condition for it to work for you, BELIEVE. The story of Mary is noteworthy, the word that the angel brought was seemingly impossible. She would conceive and have a child without a man in the equation. Now, now, it needs total faith from the recipient of such a word.

When she got hold of the word, she believed it. Elizabeth testifies in Luke 1:45, ‘blessed is she that believed.’ There is only one result for those who believe the Word. There will be a performance, perfection and a fulfillment of that word. It might look like its taking time, HOLD ON! It might seem like there are other methods available to fix it, HOLD ON!

As you hold on, you will wake up and realize that the pain has been swept away. You will realize that the financial difficult has been solved. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Don’t fear, don’t despair!

I pray for you today that you be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. You will arise as a champion in our day.

Declare this,
Today I choose to believe the Word of God. I disregard all the natural signs trying to deter me from focusing on the Word.
