The Word of God Has Power

From the beginning of time we see that it was the word of God that created Heaven and earth. God spoke and everything came to be. As God’s children, people made in His image and likeness, we have the same power. Problem is too many of us ignore, dismiss or misuse the power that God gave us by what comes out of our mouths.
This is important to you as a new believer because the sooner you appreciate the power of your words, the sooner you can intentionally employ truth to situations around you and the sooner you’ll see those situations turn for the better and to His glory.

Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” In other words, you have the option to speak words that will yield life or positive returns, or you can speak defeat, doubt, negativity, and death. Whichever you choose, you will live with. In fact, where you are today is the result of words you spoke and the expectations you had yesterday. Where you will be tomorrow is also the sum total of what you speak out of your mouth today. If you don’t like what is going on around you, change what you are saying.

Make the decision to say what God says about you. Speak words that are filled with life and truth (edify, encourage yourself and others). John 6:63 says, “It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The Words that I speak they are spirit and they are life.” Say what God says and you’re speaking life. John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” Say what God says, and you will be saying truth. The truth is God’s word.
