Act Like It’s True
January 28, 2017
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17).
The crises of life come to all of us. If you do not know how to act on God’s Word when a crisis comes, you will be at a disadvantage.
No matter what the problem is, God’s Word has something to say about it. God’s Word has the answer. Find out what the Word says, and act like it’s true!
When someone asks the question, “What in the world are we going to do now?” Just smile and answer, “We’re going to act like the Bible is true!”
Many people mentally agree that the Bible is true, but that’s not enough. You must act like the Bible is true! If you know God’s Word is true, and you act like it is, then it will become real in your life. You will bring God on the scene in your life!
Confession: God’s Word is truth. I act like God’s Word is true. I act like First John 4:4 is true. I act like Matthew 6:25-34 is true. I act like Hebrews 13:5-6 is true. I act like Philippians 4:19 is true. I act like Matthew 8:17 and First Peter 2:24 are true. I act like all the “in Him” scriptures are true. I act like it, and they are a reality in my life!

Sickness Is Bondage
January 28, 2017
And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day? (Luke 13:16)
Jesus went into the synagogue on the Sabbath, and a woman came in whose body was bowed together. She couldn’t lift herself up. She must have been bound with something like arthritis, because she couldn’t stand up straight. Who bowed this woman together? Was it the will of God that her body be bowed together so that she couldn’t stand up straight like other humans? Did God put that on her? No! Jesus said to this woman, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity” (Luke 13:12). Then He touched her, she was healed, and immediately she straightened up. The rulers of the synagogue became angry because Jesus had healed the woman on the Sabbath. (You know, some people think more of a day than they do of the Lord.) Notice that Jesus then said that Satan had bound this woman for eighteen years (Luke 13:16). When you’re sick, you’re under bondage. It’s not a blessing; it’s not freedom. I remember when I was paralyzed and bedfast for sixteen months. I know what it means to be bound and in bondage. You want to get up and move, but you can’t; you’re helpless. Sickness is bondage. Confession
It is not the will of God that I be sick. It is the will of God that I be free from every bondage, free from every sickness and disease
