“Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.” – Luke 5:4-7
The third key to possessing your possessions is the key of being committed to the integrity of the Word of God. In the reference scripture above, Peter had labored all through the night and caught nothing but when he committed himself to the integrity of the Word of Jesus, he possessed his possession. He got the best business breakthrough ever. The Word of God is pure; it has integrity; and it can’t be compromised. David emphasized this in Psalms 12:6,
“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”
Our possessions (inheritance) are packaged in the Word of God and until we lay hold on the Word, we cannot possess it.
“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” – Acts 20:32
How then do we commit to the integrity of the Word? You must first receive the Word of God.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” – John 1:12
The Word you don’t receive can not make any impact on you. We must then proceed to believe the Word.
“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” – Luke 1:45
You don’t stop at receiving the Word, you must believe the Word before there can be any kind of performance. And finally, you must engage the Word. That is, you must act on the Word.
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” – James 1:22-25
Hold on to the Word of God you receive and believe and it shall surely deliver in Jesus mighty name. You shall surely possess your possessions in the name of Jesus!
