Num 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
Why do we need to know the voice of God; His spoken word, written word, dreams, visions, trances, impressions? Why study, why memorize, why listen? Note, the written word of God is the standard by which all revelation must be judged. Dreams, visions, trances and voice must align with the written word.
What stands out for me about the Word of God is that it creates. When He speaks and says what will happen, the circumstances must reorganize to let the word come true, even if they previously disagreed.
In a dark expanse, He spoke and there was light. No sun, no moon, no lamp, just light. How that came to be is mind-boggling and it always is when we try to figure out how He could possibly do what He has said, given the circumstances. Our part is not to figure out but to know that it will come to pass. Leave the “how” to the Lord.
God told Abraham in Gen 15 that he would have his own son and then offspring as many as the stars, he believed. I would say, because at that point, God did not say that the mother of the son would be Sarah. So when God, in Chapter 17, brought Sarah into the promise, Abraham laughed at the thought of it. At that point, the father of faith almost missed the point because to him, Sarah’s case was beyond possible.“
“That is not possible,” we say. That is a phrase one cannot afford to hold onto. Even death does not define impossible for God. Take the word, believe it, stick with it, insist and persist because it will surely come to pass.
Matt 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God ALL THINGS are possible.”
There is a life that is at the disposal of every son of God, his for the taking that will bring glory to God. That people will look at and say, “How did he achieve that? That can only be God. That life is taken by faith in the God of impossible; believing in His seemingly impossible plan. That is how the previously barren woman from the Eastern side of Kenya brought forth twins, that is how many have been healed from cancers that are in untreatable stages and that is how one Andrew Womack had his own son come back to life from death. Selah.
