The Word And Your Response by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Word And Your Response by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

…he hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly
say… (Hebrews 13:5-6).

It’s important we understand how to use the
Word of God. The Word of God isn’t about
preaching or how well you can quote it; it’s
about living by it. It’s about your response to what God
has said. That’s what we read in our theme scripture; it
reveals an important principle: God spoke, and gave us
His Word, for the purpose of our response. You ought
to have a bold response to the Word always.

Now, this doesn’t mean “reciting” the same thing
that God has said; and that’s where many have missed
it. For example, He didn’t say, “I will never leave you
nor forsake you,” so that you may repeat the same
thing, saying, “He will never leave me nor forsake me.”
You have to give a response. He said what He said, so
that you can respond on the basis of what He has said.
So, the question is, what’s your response to God?

The powerful thing about the Word of God is
your response. If you don’t respond, the Word will
do you no good. You have to say something that’s
consistent with what God has said. For example, He
has said, “I’m with you always”; what’s your response
to that? It should be, “Yes, the Lord is my shepherd, I
shall not want or lack anything. I prosper everywhere
and in all things, because the Lord is with me; and more
so, He lives in me! This is my assurance of a victorious,
ever-prosperous and glorious life. Hallelujah!”

Don’t say, “O Lord, you said you’re with me; therefore, supply my needs. You said you’re with me,
why am I going through this predicament?” The one
who talks that way is using the wrong codes; he’s not
responding but complaining; and complainers get
nothing.

Don’t complain about your situation; respond
with the Word. That’s Christianity. That’s the life of faith:
the response of the human spirit to God’s Word. When
you hear the Word of God, give it a response. Your
confession of the Word is your response to the Word,
and that’s what will change your life and circumstances.
Praise God forever!

CONFESSION
I’m living the life of continuous victory. I refuse to be
discouraged or subject to the crippling principles of
the world, for I live far and above them. The Lord has
brought me into a large place, a place of wealth in
abundance. I’m a success; I win today and every day,
because the greater One lives in me. Blessed be God!
