We have not understood the power of our words. God's words are the most powerful things in the universe and we have the ability to give voice to His words.
John 1:1-3 says,"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God .... All things were made by Him (the Word), and without Him (the Word) was not any thing made that was made."
We have the authority to speak God's words after Him. There's no authority exercised without words. God has given us authority over the devil. Hardly anything can be done without words.
It's time that we give more thought to the words we speak. We should do as David did ... ask God to set a watch over our mouths and keep the door of our lips. (Psalm 141:3).
We must realize that God knew what He was talking about. If we'll do what He said, we will have what He said we could have.
Don't be a hearer only, but also a doer of God's Word.
James 1:22,25 tells us that if we are hearers only, we deceive ourselves, but if we also do what the Word says, we will be blessed.
The Word of God is Good News. It is the Gospel, and it's the power of God unto our deliverance, preservation, healing and soundness.
