CHILDLIKE CONFIDENCE IN THE
f r i d a y 8
So shall my word be that goeth forth out
of my mouth…it shall accomplish that
which I please, and it shall prosper in the
thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
The Word of God is trustworthy; it’s living and
active, sharper than any two-edged sword
(Hebrews 4:12 AMPC). God’s desire for us is to be
built by the Word; we excel and make progress by the
Word. 1 Peter 2:2 says, “As newborn babes, desire the
sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”
He wants us to accept the Word of God like children.
Children are trusting.
Jesus said, “…Truly I say to you, unless you…
become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving,
forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven
[at all]” (Matthew 18:3 AMPC). Exhibiting childlike
confidence in the Word doesn’t make you gullible or
naïve. Rather, it means you’re smart and functioning
in the wisdom of God.
Many make the Word of non-effect in their own
lives because they argue with the Word; they always
try to rationalize the Word. Children don’t try to
rationalize things; they simply act from their standpoint
of innocence, trusting the one who’s leading, guiding
or instructing them. That’s how we ought to be with
Jesus said to the Pharisees, “You have made the
Word of God of non-effect through your tradition”
(Mark 7:13). Don’t hold on to religious opinions, beliefs
and thought-patterns that are contrary to the Word.
Have a childlike delight and hunger for the Word to
do what it says.
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what has
happened to you; you can trust the Word and use
it to effect changes in your family, home, finances,
academics, and physical body. If sickness tries to attack
you, stand firm on the Word. Declare, “I’m healthy and
strong, because I have the life of God in me.” If it’s
fear, declare, “I’m more than a conqueror; greater is
He that’s in me, than he that’s in the world.”
The Word is dependable. Therefore, be bold to
speak it forth, and it’ll always prevail.
The Word of God is working and producing results in
me! I’m like a tree by the streams; evergreen, bearing
luscious fruits, because the Word of God is my life
and sustenance. I live in divine health, supernatural
abundance, and in continuous victory and prosperity,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
