The Word of God can be likened to rain that comes pouring down from heaven (Isa. 55:10-11). It is God’s major way of ending the drought in a man’s life. When the Word of God is received and applied, no matter how harsh the climate may be, results are inevitable. Responding to the Word is the way to end the dry season in your life.
For instance, in the time of Isaac, there was physical famine in the land. King and subjects alike were affected. The famine was very severe, and king Abimelech and all his experts saw no way out. But Isaac was also in that land. He despised the famine and instead obeyed the Word of God – sowing in spite of the weather condition – and God blessed him. Isaac became great because he operated God’s Word.
God’s Word is your access to healing, deliverance, abundance, promotion, etc. And just like no amount of energy applied can force open a firmly locked door, it is only the application of the Word to a given circumstance that can produce favourable results-not the use of force.
The Word comes like rain. When there is an outpouring of the rain of the Word, and your spirit absorbs it, you “bring forth and bud” in all areas of life.
It takes the Word to have victory over life’s circumstances. There is nothing life demands that is not obtainable in the Word. That is why you need the rain of the Word to fall upon you. But, like we said earlier, the rain of revelation draws from the rain of righteousness. Proverbs 1:23 says:
“Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.”
You turn at His reproof first before He pours His Spirit upon you and makes known His Word unto you. The Holy Spirit is prepared to teach you the ways of God, but until you turn away from iniquity, He will not teach you and except the Holy Spirit teaches you a thing, you cannot know it (1 Cor. 2:13).
Thus, without consecration, there is no unction, and without unction, there is no revelation.
