The power of words is amazing. It started in Genesis 1 when darkness was everywhere and God said “Let there be light” and there was light. This light dispelled the darkness. Just think how the power of your words can bring light and life and dispel the darkness that seeks to consume you. God has power to create and restore. He has given us the honor to speak the powerful life giving name of Jesus to bring hope and life to others who may be in a dark situation or storm. Ephesians 1:19-20 says the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us. To speak that powerful name of Jesus over a situation or storm is to enter a spiritual realm that is beyond our finite understanding where victory and peace reign.

Here’s four ways to consider the power of speak:

FOCUS- What you focus and feed on will cause growth in that area. What you speak will call things into being. If you say I’m anxious you will be anxious. If you say I’m afraid you will open the door to fear. You will become what you think about and focus on. Therefore choose positive words and thoughts which bring blessing not cursing (Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV).

FILL- Ezekiel chapter 37 speaks of a prophet who prophesied that the dead dry bones would be restored to life. It was a process, he spoke and tendons, joints and muscles were filled. Then he spoke breath over them and they came alive. You may feel like a dead dry bone. You may have physical, emotional or financial needs. God knows these bones will be replenished and restored. Fill your thoughts with His Word and you will fill your life with God’s blessings and power.

FOLLOW- “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:27-28 KJV).  Eternity hinges on knowing His voice. How do you discern what voice you are hearing? It takes time to know that voice, so spend time with the Father of life, who loves you, not the father of lies who seeks to destroy you. Follow Jesus and see what will follow you! As the 23rd psalm says “surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…”

FAITH_ Feelings may fail but faith never will. God is faithful and He promises to never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). Believe in the power of the great I Am, who created the universe and calls you by name. This opens portals to the heavenly realm for angels to go to work for you. Speak His powerful name and the tide of battle turns (Psalm 51:9 TPT).

Listen to the song called “I speak Jesus”.  It reminds you that His name breaks every stronghold and brings power and deliverance. Speak the name of Jesus over your family, for His presence brings peace, power and victory! I speak Jesus name over concerns, for He cares for me and mine as He does for you and yours!
