Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever – 1 Peter 1:23
When the whole world became a chaotic mass, God didn’t rally the angels and say, “Hey, let’s reconstruct the universe.” He spoke creation into being. He said, “Let there be….” and whatever He said came forth. When He said, “Let there be light,” light became! He gave the Word and recreated the world. Everything that exists came from the Word of God. Hebrews 1:3 tells us that He upholds all things by the Word of His power.
Words are powerful, but the Word is all-powerful! I need you to understand this, and let it soak; I want it to get into your spirit so you can truly understand it. Words are powerful, but the WORD is all-powerful! Anybody can say anything and have it produce results, whether or not he’s a Christian. After all, man was made in the image of God, and in His likeness. That’s the natural man. He can say anything, and have it affect his life, or affect anybody else’s; so in that light, words are powerful.
However, when a man is born again, he’s born of the Word. Our opening scripture says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” You’re the offspring of the Word, if you’re born again; you live by the Word. Your life is built by the Word; you dwell in the Word! What does that tell you? It means that you don’t just speak words, you speak the WORD. How important this is!
When your spirit is in sync with the Holy Spirit, you speak the Word; your words are spirit and life, like the words of the Master. When you have a situation to deal with, if there’s something you want to change, stir your spirit to speak forth the Word. Never be intimidated by anything! The Word of God in your mouth is God talking; it’ll change anything and prevail over circumstances.

Dear Father, what a privilege it is to have been born of your Word! Your Word in my mouth is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, filled with divine energy to turn any situation around for my good. The Word is in my mouth today, and with it I prevail over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
