One Word From God Changes Everything

TODAY'S TEACHING

Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. ...He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. - Psalm 112:1,7


Over the years I've found that God's peace accompanies His instructions when He speaks to us.

There may be times when everyone around us is telling us that it's going to be okay and that God will come through, but we just can't get it settled in our hearts.

We just can't see how He's going to do it.

And as a result, fear takes that opportunity to try and flood our hearts and minds.

Even our closest friends and family are saying that it will all work out, but we can't seem to find our footing and trust God like we usually do.

It isn't until we get a word from God in our hearts that His peace arrives.

It's as if we hear Him deep within ourselves say, "Trust Me. I'm working everything out for you."

One morning back in 2019 I received an email from YouTube saying my channel had been suspended.

This was a notice that came out of nowhere.

The ministry had always abided by their rules and regulations.

I was confused, defeated, and completely caught off-guard.

Fear grabbed hold of me immediately because there was no way in which to contact someone from YouTube about what happened (a problem many creators still face today).

At that point in the ministry, it had been 4 years of uploading prayer videos and I had put all my heart and soul into it.

Truthfully, it was really tough for me to think about anything else for the rest of the day.

Just when I thought I had placed it all in God's hands, I was back to worrying about what I was going to do.

Fear kept hitting me like a freight train.

It didn't matter who tried to reassure me, I continually battled to resist fear and trust God.

Then, one moment the following day, God spoke to my heart and said, "Dan, I've got this. Trust Me." 

He went on to remind me of Isaiah 26:3 that says He'll keep me in perfect peace when I keep my mind on Him.

After that one word from God, the paralyzing fear lost its hold on me.

Sure, I was a bit unsure as I waited to see what would happen with YouTube because I knew they had made a mistake, but I was not terrified

I knew everything was in God's hands and whatever happened, He already had a plan because unlike me, this didn't catch Him off-guard

As it turned out, YouTube unsuspended my channel just a couple of days later due to a technical glitch (likely an automated process that incorrectly flagged my account).

Needless to say, I ended up being thankful instead of fearful, and grateful instead of panicked.

Thanks to hearing that one word from God, His peace overtook me and held me in place.

And from that moment, I knew I was not alone.

I knew God was on my side, and He was for me, not against me.

I knew He was working while I was waiting.

And that's what can happen in any situation when we learn to get quiet and hear God's voice.

One word from God really can change everything.

So, trust Him.

Refuse to give into fear.

Remember the faithful promises He has packed into His Word.

Believe Him in the face of impossibility.

He won't let you down.

If this resonates with you, here's a short prayer you can say today:

"Heavenly Father, Your Word is a beacon of light in the darkness, bringing peace and clarity to my heart. Your voice has the power to transform my life and fill me with a sense of calm. May I always listen closely to the words You speak and be guided by Your loving wisdom. Thank You for the peace that comes from a single word spoken by You in my heart. Amen."

God bless you! 


Your brother in Christ,

TODAY'S QUESTIONS

1. What does it mean to receive "one word from God"?

Receiving one word from God can be a life-changing experience, as it has the power to bring clarity, direction, and purpose to our lives. This single message or revelation can guide decisions, provide comfort in times of uncertainty, and ignite a passion for serving God and others. It serves as a reminder of God's presence and love, assuring us that we are not alone in our journey. Embracing this word and allowing it to permeate every aspect of life can lead to a deep sense of fulfillment and a closer relationship with God, our Heavenly Father.

2. How can a single word from God bring inner peace?

A single word from God can bring inner peace by providing clarity, comfort, and assurance in the midst of life's challenges. When we receive a divine message, it speaks directly to our hearts, guiding us in the right direction and soothing our anxious minds. This reassurance that comes from just one word from God helps us to find peace in the midst of chaos, knowing that we are never alone and that God is always with us, guiding us every step of the way. So, when we seek to hear from God and listen to His voice, we can experience a sense of calm and tranquility that surpasses all understanding.

3. What stories from Scripture illustrate the power of one word from God?

The stories found in the Bible showcase the immense power of a single word from God. From the moment when God spoke, "Let there be light," and light came into existence, to the instances of prophets receiving direct messages from the Lord that led to massive transformations in their lives and the lives of those around them, the impact of one word from God cannot be underestimated. Consider the story of Jonah, who was given a specific word from God to preach repentance to the people of Nineveh. Upon finally obeying and delivering this message, the entire city turned from their wicked ways, demonstrating the incredible power that lies within a single utterance from God Almighty. 

4. How can we discern if a word we receive is truly from God?

To discern if a word they receive is truly from God, one must first consult the Scriptures to ensure that it aligns with God's teachings and character. Next, it is crucial to spend time in prayer, seeking confirmation and guidance from the Holy Spirit. Seeking wise counsel from mature believers who can provide insight and perspective on the word received can help confirm its validity. By following these steps of discernment, we can be assured that the word we receive is indeed from God and can be trusted and acted upon with confidence.

5. In what ways can we improve hearing God's voice in our lives?

To increase our ability to hear God speaking to us, we must engage in spiritual habits that allow us to tune into His guidance. Through consistent prayer and the study of Scripture, we can create a space in our hearts and minds where we are more open to hearing and following God's voice. These practices help us to align our thoughts and desires with the will of God, making it easier for us to recognize His voice and respond faithfully to His leading. As we dedicate ourselves to these disciplines, we become more sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and more receptive to the divine direction that God offers us in every moment of our lives. Amen.
