Give Voice

words from lips pic-wide
Most of us have a problem when we speak, or for that matter when we think. We think about our personal situations and keep mulling them over in our minds. We speak about our problems and keep calling them as current problems that won’t leave. We need to make a change in our thinking and in our speaking. Why keep calling things horrible and stay in a state of depression or anxiety and worry? We need follow God’s example. That’s when we’ll begin to see things change in our life.

From the beginning of the world, from the darkness on the face of the deep, God spoke “light be”, and you know what? Light was! Throughout Jesus’ ministry on earth, when He spoke (what He heard His Father say), situations changed: people were healed, restored to health, raised from the dead. Indeed words have power and we’ve touched on that before. Your words have creative ability, especially when you speak God’s words.

In Psalms 103:20 we find that even God’s angels, who do His bidding, clearly follow His words, and they do the same for each believer who speaks forth God’s words of faith and life.

You can give voice to God’s Word by speaking it out loud. God’s Word (the Bible) will have greater impact of God’s power in your life when you begin to speak it forth in faith. There’s MORE to God’s power than just reading the Word. That’s good to read and study the Word; but when you speak God’s Word out of your mouth, you call into being things that aren’t seen in the natural at that moment. That’s what God did in the darkness. He called forth light and it came.

God is faithful to His Word and what He promises He will fulfill. I encourage you to get into God’s Word. Let the Word encourage you, increasing the assurance of God’s love, grace, and faithfulness. As you grow in His Word and in faith, it will be easy to give voice to His Word, and you’ll soon see His faithfulness and power working mightily in your life.
