The Word Of The Lord

The Word of the Lord is Good!

The Word of the Lord has been tested and proven. His Word is dependable and trustworthy.

The Word of the Lord was subjected to hardship and trouble.

Let us look at a few people who have proved and tested that the Word of the Lord is faithful.

Noah received a Word from the Lord that there would be a flood on the land.

Though Noah had never seen rain, and though he was rediculed and persecuted by unbelievers, he believed the Word of the Lord and build an Ark and was saved with his family.

After these things the Word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” (Genesis 15:1)

By faith Abraham obeyed the Word of the Lord when God told him to relocate to a far away land where he knew nothing about.

But, by faith Abraham obeyed and received a great inheritance.

By faith Abraham believed the Word of the Lord that he would have a son in his old age and be the father of a great nation.

The prophetic Word of God was fullfilled even though Abraham did not live to see it.

Moses believed the Word of the Lord that He would deliver the children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt.

Though Moses endured persecution, hardship and rejection, he continued to believe the Word of the Lord. Then, after ten plagues, Pharoah released the children of Israel.

David received a Word from the Lord while he was a mere shepherd boy that he would be king over all Israel.

He was hunted by Saul to be killed and spent many years in the wilderness as a fugitive.

In spite of this, David held on to the Word of the Lord until the promise of God was fulfilled in his life.

The widow at Zarephath obeyed the Word of the Lord to give her last meal to the man of God; and she, Elijah and her household ate for many days. 

The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the Word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah. (1 Kings 17:15-16) 

And it came to pass after many days that the Word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.” (1 Kings 18:1)

King Ahab and his evil wife, Jezebel had massacred most of the prophets of God in Israel and they sought Elijah to kill him.

Even though Elijah feared for his life, he believed and obeyed the Word of God more than his life and presented himself to Ahab.

So Elijah went to present himself to Ahab; and there was a severe famine in Samaria. (1Kings 18:2)

After obtaining revenge by killing eight hundred and fifty of Jezebel’s false prophets on Mount Carmel, the Lord sent rain on the land.

Then the Word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:4-5)

Jeremiah spent the rest of his life declaring, “thus says the Lord…”

He was persecuted by the people and other prophets and was called a prophet of doom because he only prophesied violence and plunder.

Jeremiah said that the Word of the Lord had made him a daily reproach and derision.

He became frustrated and decided to quit. He said that he would not mention the name of the Lord again.

But, the Word of God was in his heart like a burning fire shut up within his bones. He couldn’t stifle it, but had to release it.

Hallelujah!

What else can I say?

The Word of the Lord has been tried and proven in my life. I am a living testimony of the goodness and mercy of God.

Do not reject the Word of the Lord but believe it, and it will come to pass in your life.

  1. Good word and so true. God knows what we need and knows our path even before we take a step. I can testify. Even before I through my dark times, the Lord planned my steps and led me to Jesus & then He caused the Word of God to come alive in me showing me verses to stand on as I lived with the abuse & drama of a drug addict & alcoholic and the death of my 16 yr old son. He continued to show me verses to stand on that gave life to my heart as my older son due to all of it continued in his emotional ups & downs & tried to commit suicide. God gave me His word to pray over him. He is saved today but is still in the process of healing, like layers of onions. Today through His Word, God has delivered me and healed my heart and has given me a voice in the process, I have written to date 23 books for His glory! His Word is true! Wonderful word!

    • Sandralottauthor, what a beautiful testimony and encouragement to all of us with loved ones who are going through addiction and overall troubles of this life and are unsaved. It brought tears to my eyes. I have a 41 yr old son who even though I talk to him about the truth of Gods Word, still doesn’t believe in Him. Sometimes I wonder where I went wrong in his upbringing, but he’s a grown man now, and I just need to trust God and never give up praying for him. God is faithful. He hears my prayers, and His timing is perfect, and yes, His Word is true.

      • Don’t give up praying for your son Susan becasue as you said God is faithful. Sometimes as parents we want to blame ourselves when our children strayed, but rest assured you did your best. The devil tries to use our children against us when he can’t get to us. I will continue to pray for your son that God will visit him, and the presence of God will transform him into the image and likeness of God. In Jesus name. Amen.

      • Just because we know the truth, doesn’t mean our loved ones will want to hear us. I brought my son up in love, but someone else damaged him. You never know what happened to hurt your son. They don’t always tell us everything. I found out 8 yrs ago about something that happened to him when he was a child. This too has affected him. God is faithful and it is promised, your son will be saved. Acts 16:31 Isaiah 54:13 speak the word over him–insert his name. Prophesy over your son (Romans 4:17)
        God bless!

    • Praise the Lord! To God be the glory great things He has done. You have such a powerful testimony of God’s miraculous work in your life. He is still healing and restoring you. Your testimony is a source of strength to those who are still struggling with abuse of all sorts. I pray that God will continue to strengthen and keep you as He used you to His glory. In Jesus name. Amen. I will check out your books.

  3. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. I am currently studying the Book of 1 Kings for the month of August. I am a living testimony of the word of God. The Lord surely speaks. He is Faithful. I find joy sitting at the feet of Jesus. As for God, his ways are flawless. No one is like our God. Through the trials and tribulations, He is still God. God bless you Beverley.

  4. In the 1st chapter of the Book of Genesis, the Word of God was tried 10 times with, “And God said,” and every command was obeyed, even by inanimate things. Of truth HIS word is sharper than any two edged sword. Yes, there’s no doubt, Beverly, that we can rely on HIS proven Word, and what’s more, His Word is a Personage: the Lord Jesus! Amen.
