God created the heavens and the earth by his words. He healed the sick by his words accompanied by faith. When God created man he breathed his breathe his spirit into man. The same spirit that raise Christ from the dead lives in us (Romans 8:11). If we only dear to believe and walk according to this knowledge that we are a speaking spirit: able to declare a thing and see it manifested, able to speak to a situation, your mountain and see it become a plain, see issues resolved according to your faith. We will live in a level of freedom that God had so desired for us.
For 2017 I declare a new level of faith, a deeper walk with the lord, that we operate in our new found authority in Christ. Speaking life, looking at our situations as God would, calling forth things that are not, as those they were.
The power of the Word
Hebrews 4:12 says “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” To show how powerful Gods words are, think about a scripture that spoke to you resently one that became real, one by which you were able to judge yourself and say “self we gotta do better”. This is God discerning our intent, speaking to our inner being about our stuff. Listen to him. Even in our daily lives we may not know the outcome of a particular situation but God knows and as he speaks gives us that “on second thought”, we should listen and obey. Knowing his voice also comes as we practice applying his every word to our daily walk.
Our words are also important
It’s amazing how sometimes we say evil things and they come to past. How we can beat up on ourselves when we make a mistake. Know that Words are venomous for power; A fear voiced out loud, words spoken in anger or envy. I have learnt that my words should be carefully selected as I have noticed that negativity voiced can be manifested. Then you are left thinking how did this happen or I knew this would happen. That is because you spoke into your atmosphere. Colossians 4:6 says “Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” Let us therefore practice rebuking negative thoughts and words that will even come out of your own mouth, pray against word curses heard and unheard.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” II Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV
In the same way as a speaking spirit negitivity can be birthed same can blessings. I have seen God move mountains in my life through my words. Speak life! And see your life transformed by your words. See the enemy flee by your words see your faith arise by your words, overcome by your words. Words spoken to encourage yourself and others in the lord. As you get deeper in the word use the knowledge of the word of God to scrape away every negative thought and transform your outlook on life. You will walk undefeated!
