Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we having died to sins, might live for righteousness–by whose stripes you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
“Get into (and stay in) agreement with God’s Word,”
is the best advice, I believe, that I have ever heard.
For instance, when the Word says that we’ve already been healed,
why do we, at times, feel that those words have been repealed?
Jesus said to speak to the mountain to see a change occur,
so He knew that we could do so, though we feel unsure.
Jesus was our example. He even spoke to the sea that roared.
The disciples were amazed thereafter when calmness was restored.
Proverbs says that in the power of the tongue are both death and life,
so speaking the Word of God will guard against trouble and strife.
To steal, kill, and destroy are the devil’s wicked desires,
but agreement with God’s Word will put out Satan’s “fires.”
Don’t look to situations where things seem to have fallen through;
but look, instead, to the Word. We can trust it to be true.
For, in life, we’re in a battle of great spiritual dimensions—
Hold fast to your faith that God always has for you only the best intentions.
P. A. Oltrogge
“…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:16-17 NKJV
This poem speaks of physical healing, for one thing, but can apply to any situation. Keep the faith to see God’s goodness, promises kept, and victory in any matter of your life.
On a side note, at this time in the U.S., as a Christian, I’m staying with those who are praying that any fraud will be exposed on the recent election, for truth in the vote matters and God does not approve of deceitful gains.
