And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth (Genesis 1:22).
The first chapter of Genesis gives a clear narration of how God brought creation into being. It tells us in verses twenty and twenty-one precisely what God did: He spoke words. He said, Let there be …” and everything He said came into being. Then in the twenty-second verse, we observe something: He blessed every living creature that He created saying, “…Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.”
He spoke to create, and He blessed what He created, with words. When He said, “Be fruitful and multiply,” He invoked into them the power to multiply, the power to increase mightily and to spread. He did it with words. He did the same thing after He created man. Genesis 1:27 says, “…God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
Then in verse twenty-eight, we read that He blessed them saying, “…Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Observe that God created man in His own image, and likeness. That means He created man to look like Him (in His image), and to function like Him (in His likeness).
Therefore, since God creates and blesses with words, it means we have the ability, and are required to function like Him. We bless and create with our words. Your words are so important. Only say things that are consistent with the will and purpose of God for your life.
Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue….” Use your tongue to speak blessings, creative and corrective words, words of peace, health, and prosperity. Bless, that is, invoke the power of multiplication, increase, fruitfulness, and productivity into your finances, your business, and other areas of your life with words. God has given you a wholesome tongue (Proverbs 15:4), to create or recreate the circumstances of your life to align with His destiny and perfect will for you. Keep yourself in the transcendent life, with words.
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage. I’m walking in the light of God’s glory; I’m a success. I walk in prosperity, health and righteousness. Blessed be God!
