Don't you just love the AHA moments when you get a revelation of what the Word is saying to you? I do. I had one last night while Pastor was teaching us the word. I have heard it before but this time I connected it with myself. That is the AHA moments I am talking about. We can have a revelation of what the Word is saying but we do not always connect the dots back to us. He was talking about how people in third world countries don't always have doctors. So who do they call on when they are sick. Well, if they are believers, they call on God for their healing. Now, I know you have all heard me and others say this before that there are more miracles happening in those places than here in this country. Why? Because they do not have anyone telling them any different. HELLO! There was the AHA moment. If all they have is the Word of God to put their faith in, then that is what they believe. So they do not have any problem receiving what the Word tells them they have. We on the other hand have too many other sources to turn to that may tell us different. My AHA moment was when he said this, something I have heard before, and talked about before. I put myself in that place with no doctors and tried to picture what would I do? Well, when we were in Oregon, in our small little town, I felt like we were without doctors. After working in the Hospital back home,for so many years and getting to know personally so many doctors, I knew who to go to and who to lets just say not to choose. Sometimes a little information is just enough to spoil things. Now, I wasn't sick, nor was Rob. But we do go for our annual checkups and I was trying to figure out who to go to. Well, I picked the wrong one. And some of you know that story. Let's just say she tried to give me bad reports. I could not wait to get out of Oregon (a place Rob and I both fell in love with) just because I thought they could not supply me with medical help should I need it. WOW! Where was my faith? I even made the comment that this place reminded me of a third world country when it came to the medical field. First of all why was I meditating on needing a doctor? Second, where was my faith in believing that I am healed, whole and complete in the LORD? Good grief what would I do if I were in a third world country where they really did not have doctors? Now I said all of this so that you would understand when I tell you this. BE REALLY CAREFUL who you are listening to or hanging out with when you are believing for something that has not yet manifested. They just may talk you out of your healing, or your prosperity, or whatever you are believing for. This is not a message to tell you not to go to doctors. So don't go there with it. This is a message about us staying in the Word and getting the Word in us, so that we know who to listen to, and who not to. AMEN! It is a message about what we are to meditate on and what not to meditate about. This is not just about healing, this is about anything that we are believing for. It may be you are believing something for yourself or someone in your family. Don't let the enemy talk you out of your hope in the LORD and don't let him use others to talk you out of what you are believing for. AMEN! Keep saying and believing what you need and praising Him and thanking Him for it. No matter what the circumstances are saying. The Word of God will prevail. His Word will not come back void. AMEN! Mark 11 v 22-24...So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God". For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them."..... Speak to your mountains! Then meditate on the good things. Don't let someone give you contradictory information to meditate on. Phil. 4 v 8....Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-----meditate on these things........ Watch what we are saying as well. We must speak faith filled words. We must be speaking God's Word over our situations. God's Word has not lost His power to heal, or to change whatever He pleases. His Word is still power. God spoke everything into existence. That is the power of God's Word. And you being a child of God, have the ability to speak His power with His Words. AMEN. Charles Capps said it like this in one of his books.... The Word of God conceived in the heart, formed by the tongue, and spoken out of the mouth is creative power. (From the book, God's creative power gift collection by Charles Capps) A great little book to keep in your possession for a quick reference on any situation. God's Word still works today and always will. There is no expiration date on the Word of God and what He says He will do. AMEN! Oh yeh, my AHA moment. Now I know it doesn't matter where I am, my faith is in the LORD, not in man. AMEN! STAY IN THE WORD!
