I shall believe the report of the Lord

We are living in the world full of contrasting reports. Satan and the world’s system give their report while God and his servants give a different report. Whose report will you believe? Isaiah 53:1 says, “Who has believed our report? And to whom is the Arm of the Lord revealed?” 

 

Who has ever experienced God’s delivering power? In the book of Genesis 3:1-6, Satan challenges God’s word, so you better know what God says. If man gives you a report which is contrary to the word of God, “let God be true and every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). “Blessed are those who do not follow the advice of the ungodly, but delight in the law of the Lord (Psalms 1:1-3).” 

 

A lot of people may advise you to do things contrary to God’s word. For example: Believing that a certain kind of sickness is incurable. In Romans 4:17-21, Abraham did not consider his body or the deadness of Sarah’s womb, but he believed the report of the Lord saying “so shall your seed be.” Abraham was convinced that what God promised, He was also able to perform. God’s report says, by the stripes of the Lord Jesus you are healed (Read Isaiah 53:1, Isaiah 53:4-5, Peter 2:24); the world’s report says cancer is incurable; HIV is incurable, sugar diabetes incurable and all of the others. Whose report will you believe?

In Mark 5:25-34, the woman with the issue of blood heard the report about Jesus, while doctors could not heal her; she believed and touched Jesus’ garment and was healed. In 2 Chronicles 16:12-13, it speaks about King Asa who only sought help from the doctors and never from the Lord; his sickness got worse and then he died. Therefore, trust the Lord for your healing because nothing is too hard for Him. 

 

God placed doctors here to help us and we should go to the doctors to find out what’s going on with our body. Despite what the doctor says, you can believe the report of the Lord and the word of God for your healing. Know that it is God’s will for you to be healed for your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost not the temple of sickness. Proverbs 4:22 says that God’s word is “health to all your flesh,” and it works for those who find it. Medicine should be taken according to the doctor’s instructions; if he says take two tablets three times a day for one week; you should do exactly as he advised. You believe it works even when you still feel pain, now that’s what the doctor’s instruction is. 

 

Now let’s see what God is saying or is instructing you to do. Take these verses as often as possible, meditate on them day and night, if the condition gets worst double the dose; do not believe the devil’s report. The devil always questions the word of God. In Romans 8:2 it says, “The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.” In Philippians 1:21-26, Paul did not know what to choose but he ultimately chose to remain living. We have authority; God has given it to us, use it. “Jesus has given us authority over the power of the enemy and nothing shall in anyway harm us (Luke 10:17-19).” 

Jesus is building his church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; Jesus has given us the keys of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 16:18-19). We have authority. In the book of Acts 19:16-18, we see that the sons of Sceva had no authority to use the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus as long as you have the authority to use it. John 14:12-14 tells us that believers will do the works that Jesus did, even greater works because Jesus is now with the Father. Job 22:28 states that, “You shall decree a thing and it shall be established”. So, decree and declare that no weapon formed against you or your family in any way shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. Amen 

 

Let God be true and every man a liar. Whose report shall you believe? I shall believe the report of the Lord.
