Faith Food Devotional
SettledSeptember 2, 2014
"For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…" (Rom. 3:3-4).
To establish a firm foundation for your faith, I suggest you adopt the following motto which I wrote in red ink in the flyleaf of my Bible many years ago.
- The Bible says it.
- I believe it.
- And that settles it.
Don't try to read things into the Word just because you want to believe those things that way. Study the Word - and accept it just as it is written.
For example, the denomination I was reared in didn't teach faith and healing. I was bedfast sixteen months as a teenager, and five doctors said I had to die. But I turned to the Word of God, and the more I studied, the more I saw that the Word is true.
I declared, "I am going to walk in the light of what the Word says, regardless of church teaching, because the Word is God speaking to me today." When I settled that issue in my mind, sixty percent of the battle was won: I was on the road to divine healing.
Confession: God's Word is true. I believe God. I walk in the light of what the Word says, because the Word of God is God speaking to me today.
