Topic: Speak The Word [Tuesday August 1, 2017]
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Mathew 4:4 (KJV)
The strength that comes from being equipped with the Word of God cannot be overemphasised. Jesus in the face of strong temptation, even after he had fasted for forty days and nights, won the battle by His knowledge of the word of God. Everything he said to the devil started with it is written. What is written concerning that situation you are struggling against? Would you rather continue to struggle or would you go to the scriptures and find out what was written concerning your victory?
Search the scriptures, arm yourself with the word and begin to declare it into that situation. It will turn around. When the earth was without form and void and everything around was unpleasant, God spoke his word. Everything He spoke came to pass and God saw that it was good. None of his words will go back to Him void but it will accomplish that for which He has sent it. That is why I know that one of the best weapons God has armed us with as believers is His word. Make use of the Word today and your life shall be transformed for good. In the work of creation, God spoke what He desired and He saw what He spoke turn out the way He intended it to be. For six days, God was busy speaking and what he spoke happened.
That is why I know today that everything the Lord has spoken concerning your life will come to pass in the name of Jesus. The Spirit of God is still moving and He is waiting for you to speak. Don’t keep quiet. Speak the word and keep speaking until you see the salvation of the Lord. There is nowhere the Word of God cannot reach. It will reach into every corner of your life and sort out the thorny issue for you. Learn to speak the word of God always and create your world just like God did during creation.
