A Lifestyle of God’s Word by Richard Roberts

Faith is a tool to be used each day to face anything that might come against us. Here are a couple more ways to use our faith: Develop a lifestyle of speaking God’s Word. The words used by the invalid beside the pool of Bethesda were negative not faith-filled—words. The opposite can be found in the woman with the issue of blood.

  

Mark 5:25-34 says that for 12 years this woman had gone to many doctors for relief from the constant bleeding, but no one could help her. She’d heard about Jesus and His healing power. She kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health (v. 28 AMP). She kept saying…she kept saying…she spoke out her faith in Jesus’ miracle-working power. She wasn’t in denial of her problem, she just began saying words of faith, and those words of faith became her lifestyle.

  

This woman shows us how to live a lifestyle of speaking God’s Word: stand on His Word, believe His promises, and speak it forth. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but God’s Word is forever” (Luke 21:33).

  

Focus on the promise, not the problem. Each one of us has a promise from God, and every promise from Him is yes and Amen (II Corinthians 1:20). God promised to make Abraham a father of many nations. Abraham didn’t stagger at the problem—he and Sarah were way past the age of becoming parents—he set his gaze on God’s promise (Genesis 15:5-6).

  

When problems surround you and your faith seems to be growing weak, remind God of His promises, and then turn your focus to the promise, not the problem.
