How can we Proclaim God’s Word in our life?
Discover what the Word says regarding your situation.
Whether you are standing for physical healing, emotional well-being, a loved one’s salvation, financial provision, professional blessing or something else, you can find scriptures to stand on.
Begin praying those scriptures over your situation.
For example, if you are praying for a family member’s salvation, begin praying that the Lord will send laborers across his path (Matthew 9:38). The key is to find out what the Word has to say and then pray that over your situation.
Begin praising God for His promises.
- If you are fighting depression, begin thanking God that “the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).
- If you are fighting a chronic illness, begin thanking God that “.. he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5).
Let the Word be your standard for every action you take.
Colossians 3:23 “work willingly at whatever you do, as through you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”
PSALMS 119:9-11 (NKJV)
9 How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.10 With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! 11 Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.
Obey the Word by walking in love and forgiveness.
- There is power in the act of forgiveness.
- Jesus’ instructions: “When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too” (Mark 11:25).
- God wants you to come to Him with pure heart, one that is free of anger, bitterness and resentment.
