We have a promise within a promise in Psalm 12. We know that the Word of God will go on forever. We know that Jesus is the Word, and the Word was made flesh when He came to earth as the Son of man to save us from our sins.
We must have faith in the words He has spoken to our heart personally for us to have faith for ourselves to draw near to Him. This is why many do not have a close personal relationship with Jesus. They must have personal contact with the Savior, or it will be just going through the motions without drawing near with a true connection to Jesus, (lifeless and dead).
His Words are pure and perfect. When we truly believe we have received a Word from Him to us, our heart is moved. It touches us down deep where only He can go. We can hang on to what we have been given and mix it with faith which brings power in our lives.
Faith is what is not revealed to the senses. We are given a promise from the Lord. It may be a promise from the Bible. It may be a prophecy someone has spoken to us. It may be from a Word He has personally spoken to us. No matter how we received it, if it is truly from Him it is pure. He must keep His promises. He cannot lie and will always make it good. That is who He is.
If we are not sure He will perform what He is said, we are basically calling Him a liar. Our heart is reacting out of unbelief instead of faith. Anything we receive from Him must be mixed with faith or it will not come to pass.
I believe many Christians have not held on with faith believing His promise to them, so they go on from year to year without the answers they seek. The Lord has conditions on all that He does. He is Holy and pure. There is no mixture in Him. He wants us to be like Him. That means we must have true faith in His Words and no unbelief.
If He says His words are pure then we must have faith in what He says.
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence – the assurance, the privilege of boldness – which we have in Him: we are sure that if we ask anything according to His will (in accordance with His own plan) He listens to and hears us. 15. And if we positively know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know with settled and absolute knowledge that we have granted us as our present possessions the requests made of Him. Amp.
