One of the most exciting thing about WORDS is that they have creative power.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
When we speak God’s Word, His creative power is in His Words. Therefore, when we speak His Word in faith, that creative power is still in the Word. That’s when we see miracles happen.
Joshua and the Israelites needed a miracle. God told him to keep the Word in his mouth night and day and then he would make his way prosperous and have good success. That’s what he did and that’s what he got. [Joshua 6]
Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
That’s what we’re to do – confess God’s Word continuously and then we will make our way prosperous and have good success. Who doesn’t want that!
We must make the Word of God the benchmark for all we do and keep it in the forefront of our thinking and speaking because that’s what works. If we only speak what the world says, then we’ll only get what the world gets. And we surely don’t want that!
Don’t pattern yourself after a failing system. Pattern yourself after a System that works – God’s System, His Kingdom, His way of doing things. And that’s a sure thing because God’s Word always works and has a no-failure rate of performance!
1 Kings 8:56b (KJV) 56 … there hath not failed one word of all his good promise …
