Words have power and it takes the same amount of effort to use words that build up than it takes to use words that break down. We seem to focus on the negative, which brings bad situations into our lives. We should SAY positive things as if they are already true. God calls those things which do not exist as though they did (Romans 4: 17). He changed Abram’s name to Abraham, which in Hebrew means ‘father of many nations’. Every time Abraham introduced himself, he said: I am ‘the father of many nations’. He spoke it before it actually happened, because God wanted Abraham to SAY the words and therefore changed his name to accomplish it.
What we think, believe and say will manifest in our lives, whether we are Christians or not.
We need to speak life into our lives, and the lives of others, so that we can live abundantly.
Anything negative I ever say, is a curse, according to the Bible – Mark 11: 15-23.
Just as flowers have seeds, words are the seeds of God. The word of God is incorruptible seed according to 1 Peter 1:23 – …(you) have been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.
You will reap what you sow. Whatever seed you sow will germinate in your heart and produce a harvest, if you have faith. Every word I say is a seed planted and the harvest comes. Seed doesn’t grow overnight, there will be time between sowing and harvesting.
Praying desperately is not the answer, we have to speak positive words and believe that God will assist us. Hebrews 11:6 says: Without faith it is impossible to receive anything from the Lord. What we believe, we receive.
We have to accept Jesus as our Saviour, repent our sins, grow in our faith and speak positive words to lead a successful life.
Jesus is also called the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with of God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) He came to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord. (Isaiah 61:3) Furthermore, to those who believe in Him He gives the power to become the sons of God. (John 1:12)
We have the power through Christ to achieve, create and change circumstances in our lives. We are born powerful through Christ. Our Creator did not leave us helpless, poor and weak. He gave us all the tools to not only survive but fulfill our destiny to the utmost. We are all born for a purpose. It does not matter where we came from or the circumstances of our birth, our age or present lifestyle.
Let us consider these Words:
“The Lord will perfect that which concerns me: your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; forsake not the works of your own hands.” (Isaiah 138:8)
“I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works.. My substance was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.(Psalm 139:14-16)
“Thus says the Lord, thy Redeemer; the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way that you should go.” (Isaiah 48:17)
These are just a few Words of Promise that you can stand on and act upon. The Bible is filled with them. Not only is God’s Word better than the thoughts and words of great thinking and creative genius, it transforms people! Why? Because they penetrate the heart! They don’t merely appeal to your intellect, emotions or common sense, like ordinary words. The Word of God is “Quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12).
The Word of God is Truth, and the Truth will set you free. Freedom from fear, despair, suffering, and anxiety is the greatest gift you can get. It fills you with hope, love and faith which transforms into real Power..
That amazing power is not just for us to read about in the Bible. That kind of supernatural power is available to each and every one of us, every moment of every day! God’s truth allows you to experience His grace and His power. So, instead of solving your problems by your own minute power, allow me to encourage you to reach out and tap into God’s Power. It’s available for each one of us, smart or not, rich or poor, happy or miserable – any time we call upon His name.
Proverbs 18:21 says: …..death and life are in the power of the tongue.
Therefore we must speak life.
