11 July 2023: TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD – Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 12:6


When a doctor says to a patient, “Despite the fact that you are feeling good, our tests tell us you have a dangerous condition in your body, and we have to admit you immediately.” Will you say that the doctor is crazy or stupid? No, you accept his judgment because he’s a doctor. Why then do you doubt God when His Word tells you that angels are with you (Psa. 91:11) and no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper (Isa. 54:17a)?

Your feeling may contradict what the doctor is telling you, but you would accept the doctor’s conclusion on your need to be admitted immediately. You should also be able to say, “According to the Word of God, I am healed by the stripes of Jesus despite that I am feeling this way (Isa. 53:3).”

You can decide to go with the Word of the Lord even when you are called stupid or crazy.

Just as you have no physical, observable evidence, the doctor also has no such evidence. However, most people judge the education and tools of a doctor as legitimate bases to believe what he says but struggle to extend the same thinking to the Divinity of God and the supremacy of His Word. Know that the education of the fallible doctor cannot equal the Divinity of God Almighty!

The Bible is more accurate than any doctor’s stethoscope. The Bible is more current and more precise than any report or research findings. Whose report will you believe? Many choose to believe the reports of fallible men like themselves but doubt the report of the Almighty God that is infallible.

ACTION: Decide today to always take God at His Word. List out three things you are trusting God for and meditate upon God’s promises on those things.

1 Chronicles 11:1-12:18; Acts 28:1-31; Psalm 9:1-12; Proverbs 19:1-3
