The Word of God can be trusted; it's integrity is unquestionable. When God wants to do something new in your life, He gives you His Word; He brings that thing (Whatever it is), into your life through words; through His message to you. His Word is His material for blessing you. It behooves you, therefore, to get the Word into your spirit; trust and live in the Word.
When He wanted to launch Abraham to a new level in his life, it was through words. He said to him, "Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee" (Genesis 17:5). In the mind of God, Abraham being the father of many nations was a done deal. Though Abraham had no physical children at the time, as far as God was concerned he was already a father of many, through words.
Until Abraham connected with God's Word, he couldn't walk in the blessings thereof. Being the father of many nations was God's destiny for him; a destiny created God's Word. There are people who aren't walking in God's destiny for their lives because they aren't living out the Word. Don't assume that as long as God has given a word concerning you, it'll come to pass; you have a role to play. You must believe and act on the Word. You must connect to, and align yourself with His message to you to experience the blessings thereof.
The Bible says, "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3). You have to walk and agree with God for His blessings, His truth, His Word, His will and purpose to be fulfilled in your life. You have to work out your own salvation with godly reverence (Philippians 2:12). It's the doer, not the hearer of the Word, that's blessed.
