Faith Food Devotional

Settled

September 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.
Determine to always do these two things: (1) Accept God's Word for what it says, and (2) Walk in the light of what the Word says. Don't try to get around certain things or explain them away.

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.
