Make the Word the first and Last Word
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Rev 22:13
Falling in love with the Lord is the greatest romance; searching HIM, is the greatest adventure; finding HIM, the greatest achievement, and being with HIM, the greatest source of happiness.
Make the Word of God the First and the Last Word
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Rev 1:8
Jesus is the beginning and the ending. He is the Almighty.
He was giving us a powerful truth we can apply now, today!
Let me show you how. Jesus said He is the beginning. So no matter what challenge or situation you may be facing right now, you need to start with Him. John 1:1 says Jesus is the Word. That means if you're going to start with Jesus, you're going to start with the Word. Don't do anything until you find out what the Word has to say about it.
God says that wisdom is the "principal thing." Principal means "first in importance." That means the Word of God needs to occupy the place of highest importance in your daily life; in all of your activities.
Then, stay on the Word.
Don’t let go of the Word, no matter what may happen
Fear not; I am the first and the last: Rev 1:17
Then end with the Word. Jesus said He was the first and the last.
There are times our bodies encounter sickness, disease, pain, etc. That is a fact. But the real truth, the last word is Jesus bore all of it for us and by the stripes that wounded Him we are healed.
That means the word of your doctor is not the last word.
Even the word of your enemies is not the last word.
The Word of Jesus is the last Word!
Paint spiritual warming signs for the devil. Signs that say:
According to God’s Word, I don't belong to you anymore.
My family doesn't belong to you.
My health doesn't belong to you.
My money doesn't belong to you.
My ministry doesn't belong to you.
I belong to a different kingdom. Now, back off in Jesus' Name!
You are now what the Word says you are.
You can do what the Word says you can do.
And you can have what the Word says you can have.
Begin to believe that. Begin to say it out loud in faith.
God will never leave you empty. He will replace everything you lost. If He asks you to put something down, it's because He wants you to pick up something greater. God bless.
