WORD FOCUS: YOU HAVE IT, SO SAY IT!
TEXT: Matthew 25:29 “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath…”
As followers of Christ, power and authority have been given to us; so no matter how you look at yourself you have what it takes to make anything given to work to God’s glory. Have you come across people who have little, yet even that little is taken away from them? On the other hand, there are those who already have much, yet they receive even more. Jesus said, “To everyone who has, more will be given. From him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.” Notice that Jesus doesn’t go on to say what it is we have. He simply says, “But to everyone who has.”This simply implies that, after He has died for You and I all who will receive His redemption plan: everything that pertains to life and godliness have been made ready- given to them. Which further explains everyone has one talent, gift or more to give that would add value to others in God’s kingdom because they believe.
Jesus is talking about a firm belief in God’s Word that gives one the courage to say, “I have it!” If you say you have a talent or gift, you have it, and more will be given to you but, if you say that you don’t have it, when you actually do because God has freely given us all things (Romans 8:32), then even what you have which you say you don’t have, will be taken away — not by God but by the devil! The devil does not want you to walk in God’s blessings. So when you say that you don’t have it, he can rob you of your blessings because he has your agreement! When you need something, God says that you are to ask of Him and, when you ask, believe that you receive it because it is already yours and declare or say it (Mark 11:24) Say you already have it even if you don’t see it in the physical realm yet, and one day, you will see it! Again, God is not saying, “Oh come on, pretend that you see it and if you pretend long enough, you will have it.” This is not a game! God is telling us to call forth those things which don’t exist as though they do. (Rom. 4:17)
Today, we are talking about the haves and have-nots in the church. If you believe that it is yours, you will have it. You will see yourself possessing it and enjoying it, and more will be given to you. But if you say, “Well, I don’t feel it and I’m not sure if it will come,” in essence, you are saying that you don’t have it when you actually do. Then, even what you have will be taken away. So say you have it today!
