There is a saying, “The Word works wonders when the worker works the Word.” And that is the absolute truth!  So, what is the flip side of that?  If you don’t work the Word, there won’t be any wonders.  Now as you know, my ministry is HEALING.  And there is no healing taking place without the Word doing it. So that means if you’re trying to get healed, you’d better get busy with the Word of God.

The Lord Jesus said in John 8:31-32,
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Now notice something here: Jesus said, If ye CONTINUE in my Word…what does that say to you?  Does it mean to START with the Word, then stop using it?  NO!  It means KEEP IT UP!  Now why do I bring that up?  Well, I teach people how to use the Word of God to receive their healing, and some start out fine, but after a few days, if they’re not seeing progress or manifestation, they give up and quit.  Then they have the nerve to accuse God and say He doesn’t keep His promises.  Needless to say, they don’t receive their healing.

It is written in James 1:2-7, My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

Well, for sure trials and sickness try your patience and your faith.  And that’s what they’re SUPPOSED to do.  But if we want perfect and mature faith, it must be tried and tested.  When we endure testing, keeping the faith, we have a reward. What is it?  It’s the manifestation of what we are believing for.  Many people expect God to wave a magic wand and poof! They are healed.  But it doesn’t work like that, folks.  God gave us His Word to use as a servant.  Now a master doesn’t tell his or her servant to go sit on the couch and watch TV, but rather, get up and SERVE me.  Well, the Word will work for you, that is if you don’t let it sit on it’s butt and watch TV.

Most people are too spiritually lazy to get in God’s Word and find out for themselves what it says, so they call someone who DOES know God’s Word, and hope they will spoon-feed them until they have everything they want, then they abandon the Word.  I’ve seen it time and time again.  So that means, time and time again I’ve seen people who START seeing the manifestation of their healing, and then they get lazy, and it doesn’t finish, because they didn’t CONTINUE in the Word.  They let doubt and unbelieve get in, whether it’s symptoms in their body, or discouragement from friends or family who said, “My friend tried that healing stuff with the Bible and it didn’t work, and they died.”   Yes, some DO die, and it’s because they failed to CONTINUE with the Word. But you don’t have to let sickness kill you.

I said, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LET SICKNESS KILL YOU!!  Really, it’s totally up to you.  Yes, that’s right, it’s totally up to YOU whether you live or die, because God already sent His Word to heal you, but unless you believe, unless you WORK the Word continually, The Lord Jesus already did everything that needs to be done for you to receive your healing, over 2000 years ago.  He isn’t going to do anything else, nor does He need to.  Now it’s up to YOU to receive what God has made available.  And God tells you, WORK THE WORD!

It’s been over 24 years now I’ve been working the Word, confessing I’m healed by the stripes of Jesus, believing what the Word says, and do you know what?  I’m STILL healed, because I’m STILL working the Word.  The devil is just waiting for you to stop using the Word against him so he can mount a deciding battle against you and overcome you.  If you are overcome and defeated, it isn’t because the Word of God doesn’t work, it’s because YOU STOPPED WORKING THE WORD!
Maybe that isn’t what you want to hear, but I’m helping you here.  You cannot start with the Word, then quit.  The Word will serve you all the days of your life if you continue working it.  But if you quit using it, don’t expect it to do anything for you, because it won’t.  The Word of God coming out of your mouth is the most powerful weapon in all creation.  That’s why God gave you the ability to speak His Word.  No other creatures are so equipped.

Maybe there are some who say, “How can I know if what I’m asking God for is His will?” Well, READ THE WORD and you’ll know.  If you’re not too lazy to read the Word, you will quickly find there are many wonderful promises therein.  But don’t expect God to do everything for you.  He has given you His Word, He has given you eyes and ears to see and hear His Word, and a mouth to speak it forth.  The Word is designed to be SENT TO WORK.  It is written in Isaiah 55:11, So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall PROSPER in the thing whereto I sent it.

So there you see, the Word will accomplish nothing unless it is SENT. And if you SEND IT, that is , speak it forth, it WILL accomplish and prosper in what it is sent to do.  So what do you do?  You speak it, and KEEP CONTINUING TO SPEAK IT, until what you sent it to do is manifest.  How long will that take?  Depends on your faith, for one thing.  Yes, sorry, you must BELIEVE!  Like I said, YOU have a part in this. YOU must believe.  YOU must send the Word, and YOU must CONTINUE in the Word.  Again, how long will it take?  Till you win.  You DO want to win, right?  Then stop looking at the “how long” and start seeing it DONE.  Remember, “The Word works wonders when the worker works the Word.” Never stop, never give up, never give in, keep at it till you WIN!

Whether it’s healing you need, or financial provision, or deliverance from depression, or whatever, find what God has to say about it in His Word, and start sending that Word to work for you.  And keep it up. Make the Word work for you.  It needs no vacations or days off.
