Devotion: Let them think you are out of mind

11

Heb 11:7 NHEB* “By faith, Noah, being warned about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared a ship for the saving of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.”

PrayerWhen all people in the earth, didnt believe the Word of God Noah chose to be different. He acted on the Word and accepted to be despised and mocked. The weather forecasts might have not forecast any rains in the coming days but Lot was not moved by weather experts but by the Word of God.

He chose the Word as his final authority and he got saved from the floods. Some may have thought he was out of His mind but he was moved to act on the Word of God.

Lot was also moved by God’s Word to leave Sodom.No outward indicators showed that Sodom would be destroyed in those days.

Life was at easy, when people were freely drinking and eating, marrying and given in marriage in this city then destruction came. When he told the people, they mocked him.Even his own three inlaws thought he was out of his mind and they disobeyed him completely.

The whole Sodom mocked him thinking he had gine mad because of the Word of God. Gen 19:14 NHEB “ Lot went out, and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters, and said, “Get up! Get out of this place, for the LORD will destroy the city.” But he seemed to his sons-in-law to be joking.”

The language in the Word of God is contrary to the earthly reports. The Word has truths and not facts. Facts appeal to human senses, truth appeal to human spirit. They may say such and such sickness has no cure, thats a fact but its not truth.

Truth says all sicknesses were borne by Jesus.1 Peter 2:24 by His stripes you were healed. Facts in the time of Noah may have been that it was not rainy season, but truth said it would rain 40 days and 40nights.

Therefore to be a success in life through the Word, quit facts and embrace the truth of the Word. Let people think you are crazy but stick to the truth and you will get the results. Act 26:24-25 NHEB “As he thus made his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are crazy! Your great learning is driving you insane!” But he said, “I am not crazy, most excellent Festus, but boldly declare words of truth and reasonableness.”

Confession: I operate under the truth of the Word. I am uplifted, I am a success, I am a victor, I am operating in divine health. The Word of God is operating in my life. I refuse to fail. I choose the truth in the Word and refuse worldly facts to dictate my life. In Jesus Name. Amen
