For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith – Mark 11:23
If all we read in Genesis 1 was, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…,” it would be right to presume that God doesn’t talk; He just does things! But the Bible didn’t stop there. It begins by telling us that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and tells us how He did it: through words, letting us know that God talks. Through the energy of words, He reframed and brought order to the world, which had become a chaotic mass.
What God did at the beginning was to reveal His character to us as a Creator, showing us how to bring order, beauty, and glory to our lives, and change circumstances and situations through the energy of words. As a child of God, having the Holy Spirit in you, you can never be disadvantaged. By your words, you can chart your course in victory and success. You can make your life triumphant.
Whatever you say, as long as it’s consistent with God’s Word, will surely come to pass. Amidst adversity, declare, “I’m rich in all things, for the Lord has given me richly all things to enjoy!” Affirm that good things are coming your way and happening for you and around you, because the Word says the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord (Psalm 33:5).
Remember, you were created in the image and likeness of God; that means you look like Him, and can function like Him. So like Him, use your mouth— your words—to transform circumstances, and change situations to conform to God’s perfect will for you.
