Have you ever heard someone say that you need to 'work the Word?' Want to know what it means? It means that for every situation that arises, there is an answer to it in the Word of God. Ever had financial difficulties? There are over 2,180 verses that deal with finance. What about stress, or worry over different circumstances? I'll give you a couple of scriptures for these, since I deal with them as well; and trust me, it does get hard but praise the Lord for His Word! We have shared Philippians 4:6-7 (TPT) which say 'Don't be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, then God's wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.' Notice that it says that we need to be saturated in prayer, and to tell Him every detail. God knows, but He desires for us to come to Him for fellowship, and to also give us help in time of need. God loves to help us and desires to meet every need in our life. This is why Jesus told us in Matthew 7:31-33 'Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.' Our minds cannot comprehend that God wants to totally take care of us. But, if we listen, we can hear the still small voice of the Holy Spirit telling us that God knows, and knows exactly how to take care of any and all situations, and we know this ourselves if we truly are honest. You have to go to the Word, and find out what it says about each and every situation that you face. Then, you apply what the Word says about a certain situation, and by faith, believe that it has been taken care of. Remember, 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says 'All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.' It gets hard sometimes, and there have been times that I have wanted to just throw in the towel and quit! I can relate to David when he said in Psalm 27:13 'I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.' I am just being transparent with you. But I know my Lord, and I know that nothing takes Him by surprise, and that He has me right in the palm of His hands, and would never fail me. So, why would I fail Him by doubting His capabilities, or His Word, or His strength and allow fear to rise up and bring unbelief? He is God Almighty, and He tells me in Jeremiah 32:27, 'Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?' Work the Word! Apply it to your life, and tell your circumstance just how big your God is!
