The Word of God is tested and tried the moment He releases it. The Word of God concerning our lives is for instance tested and tried through our natural life testing circumstances and situations. And in the midst of our trials, it is not uncommon to end up with doubting the validity of the Word or the authenticity of its power.
The Word of God manifested in the flesh is Christ (John 1:1-14). Christ as God's keyword manifested in the flesh prevailed and overcame all tempting and trial situations in the world of flesh and in all realms and dominion. And through Christ, we know for certain that God's Word as authority and dominion above all can never fail. God's Word is spirit and it is life (John 6:63). It is the solid anchor of our soul. It is the source and root of creation itself. All of creation are subject to the authority and dominion power that is in the Word of God. Therefore, it is impossible for God's written, spoken and living Word of authority to fail when tested and tried in any aspect, shape or form in the existence of His creations.
The lingering trials we immediately find ourselves in the moment we become awoken to God's spoken Word of promises concerning our lives does not determine its authenticity or change the validity of God's Word. The testing situations we find ourselves in the moment we come to the knowledge of God's existing and enduring love for us which, are usually the direct opposite of God's Word of promises for our lives are by no means evidence that the Word of God is void of power or that God is incapable of bringing to pass His written and spoken promises concerning our lives. Instead the spoken, written and living Word of God has already predetermined not only the outcome of our situations as good but also for the fact that it is our solid soul anchor, it is indeed all that we need to hold on to in order to remain in God's only righteous path that can lead us to His predetermined righteous end outcomes for our souls .
Christ as God's anchored Word revealed and manifested in the flesh has already overcome all for us and as long as we remain in oneness with Christ we will in all situations and circumstances continue to be more than conquerors in Him (John 16:33, Romans 8:28-39). Christ as our soul anchor is an anchor that never fails. Christ as our soul anchor is also our good Shepherd. As our good Shepherd, He guides our soul to remain in the path of God's predetermined righteous goodness outcome for our lives. And as also our heavenly Manna, He keeps us strengthened in the midst of our weakening natural situations. The natural situations we go through are not meant to cut us loose from God's soul anchor, which is Christ. Instead, our natural situations are meant to empower us to put all our trust and hope in Christ who is the anchored glory of God. The power of the Word as it is already evidenced through Christ's victory in all realms and dominion can never fail. And as long as we continue to trust and focus on the power of the Word and not get distracted from focusing by our trials in the world, we will remain spiritually strong even when we are naturally weak (2 Corinthians 12:8-10).
The unfailing power of the Word is evidenced already through God's amazing work of creation. All of creation is subject to the dominion authority of the Word. And the opposite to the true Word of God, which is the devil who is nothing but a liar can never stand against God's Word let alone prevail over the dominion power and authority of God's written, spoken and living Word. Christ as God's entire Word of authority manifested in the flesh has proved to us without a shred of doubt that the Word is forever enduring, therefore it can never fail. When tempted by the devil, Christ who is God's Word manifested in the flesh prevailed and overcame all temptations. The storm obeyed His voice and was still. The sea and all sea realm spirits bowed under His feet. And as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, He walked on the sea and trampled upon all the evil sea spirits. Spirits of infirmities disappear at the commanding tone of His voice. Demons flee with extreme fear at the commanding order of His voice. The ocean obeyed His voice and the grave could not keep Him buried in the grave. Death conceded defeat in all realms and dominion when faced with Christ who is Resurrection and life itself. As the All in all Word of dominion and authority revealed in the flesh, Christ overcame and prevailed against all. And to Him forever and ever be all power, glory and honour.
The Word of God as evidenced by Christ's victory who is the Word revealed in the flesh is authority and dominion over all. Therefore, the Word of God as living Word of truth and life will always prevail over every situations and circumstances we can possibly find ourselves in this fallen world of sinfulness. God's Word endures forever. And whether it is tested, tempted, doubted or even disbelieved it will always prosper and accomplish that, which God has released it to accomplish (Isaiah 55:8-11).
Today you might be reading this and feeling somehow down or doubtful because of your trying situations. My word of encouragement for you today is simply to stand firm on the Word. If Christ as the unfailing Word is with you, then you are a partaker of His endless victory. And by His special grace and dominion power, every knee will surely bow and every tongue will surely confess that Jesus Christ is LORD over and upon Your life. As the Word of authority revealed, Christ is the only one with power and dominion above all. And as long as He is the solid anchor of your soul, your life boat can never sink, storms of afflictions can never blow you apart and darkness can never comprehend or apprehend you. By His special grace, power and mercy, you will reach the destination of your expected end result as it is already predetermined by God. Your testimony shall know no boundaries. And through it all, you will come out full of lion strength but gentle and meek as a lamb in line with God's supernatural Will. Your trials by grace of God will work together for the perfection of your faith. Your testing situations to the glory of God will righteously refine you to fulfil your God given entire purpose and not confine you in sinfulness. And in all realm and dominion, your testing situations will enable you to have an unshakeable trust and faith in the power, dominion and authority of God's solid soul anchored Word, which He manifested in the flesh in the Person of Jesus Christ who as the Word is the truth, the life and the only way of having eternal life in the everlasting kingdom of God (John 14:6).
Stand firm on the written, spoken and living Word of God. Confess it daily and hold on firmly always to Jesus Christ who is God's solid soul anchor for your life. He has never fail and He can never fail, He will never fail and He can never fail you! Amen.
"Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all."
