“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #20: Taking God at His Word (Trusting in the Lord).



"The royal official said, 'Sir, come down before my child dies.' Jesus replied, 'You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.'" - John 4:49-51 (NIV)

Smith Wigglesworth used to say, "God said it, I believe it, that settles it." 

This short statement summarises how Wigglesworth related to God. If God said it, Wigglesworth believed it and that settled it. What a life!

What does God say about your life? What does He say about the challenges that you are facing?  What does He say about the plans that you have? Do you know?

I suggest you do as follows: Take your Bible. Using the index, find portions that speak to your life, i.e, your family, your marriage, your finances, your fellowship with Him, your challenges, etc. If you have an electronic Bible, this will be quite easy for you to do.

Once you get what God says about your life, you will need, just like Wigglesworth did, to boldly declare, "God said it, I believe it, that settles it."
