The Impact of Our Words
Read Time: 10 Minutes
We have learned that the words that we speak are power-filled words. God set it up this way, but why did He do that?
Why has God given us the authority to come before Him boldly and ask of Him? Ask and we shall receive, that our joy may be full. That word full is pleroo in the Greek which means filled to capacity, there is no more room, nothing more required. This is a promise in God's Word for you and me. We have been adopted in the family of God (Ephesians 1:5), the body of Christ, and we are to have life and have it more than abundantly (John 10:10). We are ambassadors for Christ (II Corinthians 5:20), we are representatives of Christ on earth in this day and time. We are the spokespersons for God. The goodness of God leads men to repentance (Romans 2:4) we are to manifest that goodness.
When we are doing well, when we bear much fruit (Galatians 5:22 and 23 love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance). When we, as ambassadors of Christ, exhibit these qualities of life, we glorify God.
Abiding in the love of God and doing the Word of God allows us to abide in the love of Christ and his joy will remain in us and our joy may be full, and when God fills He does it perfectly. If you take some time and look up the occurrences of joy in the new testament and gospels you will see that it is used 60 times and it is wonderful to take the time to study.
Since God has said that we could have what we ask for as we keep His commands and abide in His love we need to watch what we say and ask for. We need to all realize that it is the Word of God abiding in us that causes us to believe God's Word beyond a shadow of a doubt (faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, Romans 10:17).
Let us see some of the effects of God's Words.
How did He do that?
Words have no mass, no physical appearance, our world and all the planets and stars in the universe that hold our world in place were created by the words that God spoke. Powerful!!
After Satan attempted to usurp the throne of God he was cast out of heaven and it made the world become without form and void
God spoke and it came into being.
We know that Satan beguiled Eve and Adam went along with it and then Satan received the dominion and authority over the world. But then Jesus Christ was born and lived a sinless life, and with his death and resurrection, fulfilled the law redeeming us from it, buying back the dominion and authority over the world. We were held captive by the adversary but Jesus Christ lead captivity captive (Ephesians 4:8), more precisely he lead our captor captive so we are now free from Satan's dominance and we have the original power and authority returned to us.
God brought to pass the (seemingly) impossible when Mary said, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word." (Luke 1:36) and she became pregnant without laying with a man. God told Mary via the angel that with God nothing is impossible and with her words she accepted the promise that she was going to bring forth the Son of God and call his name Jesus.
Jesus Christ had all power and authority (Matthew 28:18) and before he ascended he gave that to us who believe.
The key is to believe. We have been accepted into the household of God by adoption and given full right and privileges (Ephesians 1:5-19 ). We have the same power and authority that Jesus Christ has. We need to act like it. If you were the child of wealthy parents would you act like you had need of food and clothes? NO! I can do all things because God has given me the authority and power to do it! I know this because God's Word abides in my heart. My desire is to do the will of God and walk with Him. When you are absolutely convinced of who you are and what is available you are unstoppable. Your spirit knows and is the power of God--you must learn how to use it.
Jesus Christ taught us how:
You know what happened to that tree; the next morning it was dried up from the roots (it died backwards even). Jesus Christ cursed that tree. Watch your mouth that you don't curse anything. If you speak anything contrary to what is promised in God's Word, anything that is less than the more than abundant life, anything less than health and wholeness you are cursing it. What is promised? By his stripes I was healed or am I saying that I am sick, or have cancer, or have arthritis, or have a screwy metabolism, or my thyroid doesn't work anymore or . . . Satan's lies are endless. And that is just what they are--lies. You have been redeemed from the captor.
We have been so world conditioned. All sickness no longer has any right to your body, you have been bought back. That is why God tells us to not be conformed to the world, it is sin, sickness, and death. We need to renew our minds to the Word of God and be spiritually conditioned. God had Paul write, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me." (Philippians 4:13) because he can, no matter the circumstances or facts. We can do all things as well because we are convinced of His Word. What God said, He will bring to pass. Watch what you say:
Do you honestly believe in your heart that you have a certain illness or problem? It is manifested in your life isn't it? We need to get to the place where we believe the Word of God instead of the lies of the captor which we have been freed from.
Do you doubt your faith in the Word which is believing the Word?
Also, build your faith by praying in the spirit; speak in tongues.
This is what God has said to us. Take Him as His Word. When you come before God praise Him. Speak His promises that pertain to your situation. You don't have to confess the lies the devil is trying to impose on your life; speak the Word which is spiritual power, and thank God for all that He continually does for you and all His saints. When you come before God don't say something along these lines, "I just can't seem to make ends meet here God. The economy is turning bad and so many are being laid off, and things are getting more expensive, and I'm afraid I'm going to be next. Please help me keep my job, amen."
What have you just done? Did God say your livelihood depends on the economy or Him? Didn't Jesus Christ come that we could have life and have it more abundantly? Do you believe that? If you are not absolutely convinced of that you need to get your head into the Word continuously. At every opportunity speak out loud the promises of God and you will believe it in your heart and you will see it come to pass. God says so. So pray like this instead:
When you speak God's Word you have unleashed the spiritual power behind it. God's Word is effective and will never return void, it will accomplish that which God pleases.
Replace your thoughts with God's thoughts, His Word. That Word which comes out of your mouth is effectual and will prosper in the thing whereto you send it.
To God be the Glory!!
For the Glory of God and Accuracy of His Word
