Topic: God Responds To His Word [TREM Devotional 25 August 2020]

“Take words with you and return to the Lord….” Hosea 14:2 (KJV)
Why does the scripture say we are to return to God with words or confession? It is simple! God does not respond to our cries or complains but to His Word. He is only moved by His Word and that is why He is constantly watching over His Word to perform it in our lives. There is a Word concerning every contrary situation that the believer goes through. You, therefore, have a responsibility to find out what God is saying about that situation in your own life. When you locate what the Word says, take it back to Him because that is what He is obligated to watch over.
Like I have always said to you, the things you are trusting God for will not just fall on you like a bag of cherries simply because you cried or complained. While it is okay to cry when necessary, you still need to blow your nose, wipe away your tears and talk to God. I am not talking about complaining or just mumbling words all in the name of prayer. No! I am talking about locating God’s Word and taking it back to Him. I am talking about bringing forth your strong reasons. Are you sick, troubled, in want or afflicted? Get into the Word and locate your healing and deliverance. The scripture that says: “by His stripes ye were healed” is still true till today.
Every time you refuse to accept what the word of God says about you; you are trying to make Him a liar. When you say you are weak and cannot succeed, God is not pleased because He does not make any person weak. It is offensive to God when you say you don’t have. There is no lack in God. Child of God take the scripture that addresses your area of need, read it, meditate on it, confess it over and over again and you will see the manifestation. You will not be denied. The delay is lifted! God is granting you great speed.
