The Sent Word
He sent his word, and healed them . . . . — PSALM 107:20
An unsaved uncle of mine once contacted my mother. He wanted her to get in touch with me so I would pray for his daughter, who was dying. I told Momma when he called back to tell him that I said my cousin would live and not die.
“Oh, son, have you heard from the Lord?” Momma asked. (She knew the Lord sometimes told me things.)
“Yes, I heard from the Lord. She will live and not die,” I assured her.
“Praise the Lord. That’s fine.”
“Yes, I heard from the Lord in Mark 11:23.”
“Oh,” she said, her voice dropping in disappointment.
People put more emphasis on some kind of manifestation than they do the Word. Don’t do that. Put the Word first.
When I told Momma again what to tell my uncle, she said, “Do you suppose it will work, Son?”
“Certainly, it will work! Will the multiplication table work? No one ever says, ‘I don’t know if I’ve got enough faith to work the multiplication table. If you’ll work the multiplication table, it will work. And if you’ll work Mark 11:23, it will work. It’s the Word that does it.’”
That’s where some miss it. They think they’re going to have to perform. No, God does it. All we’re to do is what the Word tells us to do.
Confession: God’s Word works. I act on it, and it works for me.
