SPEAK THE WORD
“And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,”
(Luke 5: 1)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Our Focal Scripture speaks of a multitude that pressed on Jesus because they wanted to hear God’s word. Like we observed, ‘press’ is the root word for ‘pressure’. So the pressure that came to Jesus wanted to hear God’s word from Him. ‘Pressure’ came to Jesus and demanded to be fed with God’s word.
Friend, every pressure and every challenge you face is a call for you to speak God’s word. Some pressures may never end until you attack them with a word from God that fits perfectly into the pressure situation. Some challenges may never end until you fight against them with God’s word. Some pressures won’t end until you speak the word of God.
Speak God’s word to every pressure in your health, and it will crumble. For every financial pressure, remind yourself that God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. When pressures arise in your career/business, speak a word that addresses the specific issue and the pressure will fizzle out before your eyes.
If all you do in your pressure moments is to complain, you are making a mistake that will complicate your pressures. If you face pressures like one who is already defeated, don’t blame anyone when the pressure finally defeats you. When pressures come and you succumb without a response, the pressure might end up having the final say.
Search the scriptures and find a fitting word for every pressure that comes your way. As you speak the word, every pressure will bow to the word.
Acts 19:20 says: “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”
Pray With Me: Lord, when pressure comes, I will give it Your word, in Jesus’ name!
