“And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.” Romans 16:30 NKJV
I’ve said it many times, and I don’t mind saying it again – “God is Faithful to His Word!”
Have you heard the song by Andrae Crouch, featuring Pastor Marvin Winans, Let the Church Say Amen? If not, then please purchase it or request that your local gospel radio station play it. It will be a blessing to you!
Amen, is a little word with a huge meaning. It’s much more than just how you end a prayer, it means it is so, so be it and I’m in agreement with you. And this plain and simply needs to be our response to WHATEVER God has said.
I understand that it’s hard for some people to take God at His Word, because the devil will do everything that he possibly can to get you to not line up with the Word of God. When we are in agreement with God’s Word, we are a tremendous threat to the forces of darkness. We’ll begin to take God at His Word, and stop believing the lies of the devil.
Once your thinking, speaking and believing matches what God has already said – you’ll see the Word become manifested in your own life. And then you’ll have a testimony. And then your testimony might encourage someone else to believe God and then they’ll experience His Word being manifested in their own lives, and then they’ll tell someone. And as the old shampoo commercial goes, “And so on, and so on and so on…”
We must keep reminding ourselves that the Word of God is true and already settled in heaven – it’s NOT going to change. The gospel singer Fred Hammond says it this way in his song, Wait on the Lord, “Don’t give up, the Word is confirmed!”
So, getting back to Andrae Crouch’s song – read the words (and listen below) and just agree with God!
“Make this your response… amen
To whatever He says… amen
From the healing of your body… amen
To the raising of the dead… amen
No matter how you’re feeling… amen
Or how your world is reeling… amen
Battle on through the night… amen
Cause you’re going to win the fight… amen
Even in the valley… amen
Or standing at your red sea… amen
Continue to say… amen
Cause your help is on the way… amen
My God has spoken
I heard Him… let the church say amen.”
When sickness tries to attack your body, just tell yourself that the Word of God already says that Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our sins, the chastisement of our peace was laid upon Him and by His stripes we are ALREADY healed. God has said it, and I agree with Him, so “AMEN!” (Isaiah 53:5)
When circumstances keep reminding you that you still aren’t walking in your destiny or living your dreams, tell yourself that the Word of God says that if I delight myself in Him, then He WILL give me the desires of my heart! And I’ve decided to agree with God, so, “AMEN!” (Psalm 37:4)
Get into the Word of God so that you’ll know what He’s said – and then agree with Him, and no matter what comes your way, there will already be a scripture that lines up with what you’re going through and you can boldly say to the matter, “God has already spoken about this, here’s what He said ______________, and to Him, I say AMEN!!!”
