His word is His voice!
Pastor Juanita Gibbs has told me to trust the voice of God through his written word. As a person who has trust issues that has been a work. I am getting better about it, but I am not fully there in it.
The more I begin to lean not on my own understanding and take the comfort that comes from His written word it can remedy the negative, depressive, doubtful, fearful stuff that comes from within my soul to bring deliverance and healing.
The word of God is a sword Pastor proclaims from Hebrews 4:12 and she continues that this is the only sword that can touch the soul(mind,will,and emotions). This sword has come to cut out all that brings anxiety and worry and all the other stuff that is not of God to align me with truth from His word.
Then your maidservant said, ‘Please let the word of my Lord the king be comforting, for as the angel of God, so is my Lord the king to discern good and evil. And may the Lord your God be with you.'” 2 Samuel 14:17 NASB
For so long before coming to the place I am now at Reformation Developmental Center I would pray God just one word from you can make all the difference. I was seeking comfort from a word from the Lord when He has already provided me countless words of comfort through the Bible.
Its like she told us last night in Bible study to want to see change in your life plant the word and plant it deep. I have to take the word and keep it in my thoughts hold them there.
Even today I have battled some contrary stuff by attacking it with the word. This is my battleground in my mind. In time I will be victorious in this and God can use this to get my spirit, soul and body in alignment and the God kind of manifestations will follow.
I will and am very determined to allow the Word of God to bring comfort to my soul and calm it, as well as, heal and deliver me from things that are not based on truth of the Word.
