I know first hand that God’s word is powerful and living. God’s word is full of life. There might be a million great books in the world, but none of them has the power of God’s word. It is God-breathed. It pierces and divides, sorting out the good and evil. It heals and restores our souls and mind. When God speaks to us, and we step out and say what we heard, we will see situations shift in our lives. We will see:
5. Our lives mirror our Father in heaven.
Be imitators of God as dear children. (Eph. 5:1)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11:1-3)
We are created in God’s image; we are creative beings, like our Father. We can combine our faith with His word and see original, miraculous events take place. God is waiting for our faith to awaken, and His will to be spoken and acted on. It is incredible what one person with faith can do: they can shake cities, colleges, nations, cultures, religions. They can frame their world “by the word of God” (Hebrews 11:3). God didn’t just haphazardly form the world we see. The word for “framed” is the Greek word “katartizo” which means “to set in order, adjust, complete what is lacking, make fully ready, repair, prepare, to arrange.” All that God created was shaped and put into existence by His spoken word. God used His words to create the world. What we can see comes from the invisible words of God.
We are made in His image, and we can create things with our words. Everything that needs to be changed in our lives, in our country, in culture, in our world will be improved through words. The kingdom of God is all around us, and it is governed by one thing: the word of God. It’s time to speak God’s Word over our mental health, our families’ futures, and the destiny of this country. We can be like our Father Who “calls things that are not as though they were…” (Romans 4:17).
