Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Timothy 2:13 (KJV); If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
The law of faith is built on the integrity of God pertaining to His Word.
This integrity is defined in our theme scripture. The Amplified version of the Bible says, “If we are faithless, He remains faithful [true to His word and His righteous character], for He cannot deny Himself.”
In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1). God and His Word are inseparable. What He says is who He is. To believe in His Word is to unquestioningly believe Him as a person.
Sometimes, men subject the power of the Word to their personal experiences. They once prayed for a sick relative or close friend but the person died and as such they entirely disregarded the promise of God to heal disease. There are those who once desperately needed a financial breakthrough and prayed for God’s intervention but nothing happened. They have since written off divine providence as a fallacy of the deluded.
Did the death of that person diminish the healing power of God? No. Did the worsening of that financial situation shorten His saving hand? No. Did the downward turn of your situation make a liar of Him? Of course not.
Understand this, a man’s unbelief can never shake the truthfulness of the Word. God remains true to it in every circumstance.
This integrity is what gives faith its life force. Because we know that God is true to His Word, we live our lives with utmost confidence that what He said He is also able to perform. When things are not working as they ought, we instead ask ourselves (in humility), what we might be missing and have not yet understood about God and His character. We do not conclude that healing, miracles or God’s provision are a lie.
God keeps His Word. This is the foundation on which we base our faith.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God keeps His Word. This is the foundation on which we base our faith.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Knowledge. I live my life in the absolute confidence of Your Word. It is true and it never fails. It is on the Word that I stand and that I build ministry, business, career or family. You have exalted this Word above Your name. This is the blessed assurance by which I walk life’s courses. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
