God responds to you

Posted on Posted in Character, Commitment, Responsibility

                                                … according to your word!

      We are quick to quote God’s Word,
      … and to expect that God will do what He said.
      And yes God will do what He said,
      … because God holds Himself to His Word!

However, what we so often don’t realize,
is that God holds us at our word.
What we say and what we confess,
… is what God responds to.
In fact, God not only holds us to our words,
God judges us according to our words!

      For by your words you will be justified,
      and by your words you will be condemned.”
      Matt 12:37

Too often we are like the Israelites, who,
… when God wanted to be a strength to them,
saw themselves as being well able, saying …

      “All that the Lord has spoken we will do.”
      Exodus 19:8

So God held them at their word, (as He does us as well).
and gave them the ten commandments to keep!

Jesus however came to do for us what we could NOT do,
… and told us what is needed to make it work.

      If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you
      John 15:7

Let Jesus give you His words of life,
and the Father will do according to His words of life that you speak!
