Genesis 1:1-3 ... In the Beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. And the Earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be Light": and there was Light.
In the above Scripture, God looked out over the darkness that was over the Earth, and He said, "Let there be Light!"
Notice that the Spirit of God was hovering over the water. The water was there, the darkness was there, and the Spirit of God was there ... but nothing happened until words were spoken. God spoke and said, LIGHT!" When God spoke, Light came into existence.
His Words were His creative power
People think of words as being unimportant. They make statements like ... "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Nothing is further from the truth.
Words can kill you. If you don't know what you doing with words, they can destroy you.
