God is faithful. He was, He is and He will always be faithful, for that is His very nature. Unlike man who is largely undependable, God is always dependable for He never change. We appreciate God's faithfulness in His promises. We are all powerless against the wiles, the lies and the supernatural powers of the enemy except for the word of God. God's words have the power to disarm all the powers, lies and cunning of the enemy. To show to the world and to man that God's words are the most effective tool against the enemy, even Jesus Christ Himself used God's words to disarm the devil in the temptation at the desert. God's words have the same power and efficacy as God Himself. This is revealed in the Book of John when it began with the words, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1). It continued with, "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).
God never goes back from His promises. His promises become supernatural and powerful if we accept them with full faith, trust and confidence. God said that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed, we can command the mountain to cast itself to the sea and it will obey. Even if the physical reality is overwhelmingly against the realization of God's promise, it shall come to pass if we believe in it wholeheartedly and persist in it with the patience of the cascading waves that pound the shores. All our sicknesses have been healed through the wounds and stripes borne by Jesus Christ prior to the cross. We only have to claim the healing with living faith and full trust and healing can be ours for the taking. We can rest in the faithfulness of God when He said, "Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved." TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
