He sends forth His word and heals them....Psalm 107:20
Jesus is the Word, and He doesn't only use scripture to deliver us, but I would never have imagined that a ‘rubber ducky’ word could be used to set this captive free.
One Sunday morning during a church service we were asked to get up out of our comfortable chairs to minister to one another. A certain wonderful lady came to me and told me about a vision God had given her. She saw me as a rubber ducky. Everytime the enemy tried to put me under, I would bob right back up.
For some time I had been in much distress with thoughts that I couldn't overcome. No matter what I did spiritually, the thoughts continued to bombard me. I finally told the Lord He had to fight the battle.
Then, He reminded me that I was like a rubber ducky. The Holy Spirit rose up within me. I said, "Devil, I'm like a rubber ducky and no matter what you do, I am going to bob back up."
Jesus was in those words. Instantly I had complete peace.
I identify with the disciples in the boat on the raging sea when Jesus calmed the storm with His words.
