Words that Act

In Genesis chapter 1 God spoke. He spoke the words that created the entire universe. In verses 3-5 he commanded light to come forth. And it did. That was day one. In verses 6-8 He spoke Sky! And it came forth. That was day two. In verses 9-10 He spoke the words that separated the heavens from the earth. He also commanded the land to appear and called it earth and called the water “ocean.”   God saw that this was good. In verses 11-13 God created all the plants and trees. That was day 3. In verses 14-19 God spoke the sun and the moon into existence. That was day four. In verses 20-23 God spoke the ocean creatures and birds into existence. And commanded them to reproduce. That was day five. In verses 24-25 God spoke the land animals into creation. But then, in verses 26-28 God did something different. He said this “God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make the reflecting our nature.” (The Message). He did it so we can be responsible for everything God had done. This was day six. On the seventh day, God rested from all He had done. If God did all this with the power of words then shouldn’t we focus on our words too? Our words have power. From the beginning of time this has been the case. The words I prayed back in 2011 have carried forward to today. I cried out to God and He heard my prayer. Our words have power. You can speak life. Or you can speak death. This applies to everyone of us! And it applies to how you talk about yourself too! You can choose to speak the words that will bring life to your body such as “I have autism, cancer, fibromyalgia…” Or you can proclaim that by His (Jesus) stripes I was healed of ___!” And give glory to God! I am claiming that by the blood of Jesus I am healed! In Genesis 50:20 Joseph said to his brothers “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives!” In this, Joseph used words to heal. What will you do? Until next time…

 

Always speak life
