The Power of Honor

You can receive a life of miracles and breakthroughs. Honor is the key to unlocking faith.

Hi, I’m Russell Evans from Planetshakers and I’m so glad you’re with us with God Today. I want to speak to you briefly about the concept of honor. Honor is talked about a lot through Scripture. In fact, if you look at the first miracle Jesus ever did, it was when they honored what He said was when the water was turned to wine. The second recorded miracle is when a nobleman came to Jesus. And before that Jesus was in his hometown and the Bible says He could not do a mighty work because they did not honor Him. So honor is attached to miracles. Honor is attached to breakthrough.

So I began to look at what honor meant. Honor came from the concept of when coins were weighed. The more they weighed, the more valuable they were. So what really honor is, is something that has value, that has weight. So what you honor is what you give weight to, and what you give weight to is what you receive from. Think of “honor your parents and it’ll go well with you.” When you honor your parents, you receive the weight of what they have. You receive what they carry, and it goes well for you. The Kingdom of God is based on honor.

In fact, without honor, we cannot experience salvation. Honor is faith’s best friend. Jesus died for the whole world. He died for all our sins. He died for every single person, but it isn’t until people come and give weight to what He has done and give value to what He’s done that they receive salvation. And then as they receive salvation, they’re given faith. So honor is the key that unlocks faith. So I want to encourage you – honor the people around you. Honor God in your life. Honor His Word.

When I was growing up, I had the devil speak to me about my destiny, that I couldn’t do this and I couldn’t do that. At the same time, I had the voice of God speaking about my destiny to be a spokesman to nations. I had two voices speaking to me. It was the voice that I honored that I empowered. I want to encourage you to honor God’s voice because when you empower His voice in your life, miracles and breakthroughs happen. I’m sitting here today and I say, “God, you’ve done amazing things. We touch millions and millions of people’s lives through the Gospel. How did that happen?”

It happened because one day I honored what He said about my future and continue to honor His Word every day. And then He came and took over the rest and did mighty works through us. That’s the same thing that can happen to you. You can receive this breakthrough. You can receive a life of miracles and breakthroughs. Honor is the key to unlocking faith.

Let’s pray. Father, today I thank You for these amazing people listening today. I ask that You would minister to them and give them a revelation of honor. As they honor God, as they honor the people God puts in their lives, and as they honor Your voice, Lord, we’re believing for miracles and breakthroughs, healings and deliverances, and provision and prosperity. Bless Your children, and I thank God for them today. You’ve been listening to God Today and I’m Russell Evans, and I want to shake the planet.
