The word of God is the steadfast truth that has stood the test of time. The ancient words still ring true with the power of God’s love and goodness towards us after all these years. There is no situation, no day, no trouble that does not change when the truth of God’s word is released upon it.
Hebrews 5:14 says Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have trained their senses to discern good and evil. To wield the truth of the word of God as a weapon and a powerful instrument requires dedicated practice in not only feeding on God’s word but also in allowing it to impact your senses i.e. your perception and thoughts. Practice speaking it over your adversities, over the stagnant areas of life. When situations try to tell you of your defeat convince your situation with the scriptures.
We are a favoured people. We live in the grace of God with the joy of salvation in our hearts. We have been made righteous in Christ and Psalms 5:12 says that the Lord surely will bless the righteous and surround them with the shield of favour. How blessed are we to be surrounded and shielded by the favour of the Almighty God!
This is the year for us to walk in the revelation of the truth of God’s word and in the realization of His unending favour over our lives. Isaiah 61 says that the Spirit of God declared favourable year of the Lord over the Israelites. The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. And instead of humiliation, they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore they will possess a double portion of their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs.
We who have been made righteous, adopted into the family of God through Christ and gifted with the infilling of the Holy Spirit have been called to live in the favourable year of God always. Let’s enjoy the months ahead and train our senses to perceive the favour of God upon our lives as we walk victoriously together with Christ
