Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Heb. 11:3 KJV)
If we will live victoriously in the realm of the spirit, then we must understand the power of words. We have understood the power of words in the realm of the physical. Words can hurt feelings, or rejoice the heart. Words have broken relationships, caused missed business opportunities, and split families and friends. The physical power of words is only the tip of the iceberg in the realm of the spirit. God rules the realm of the spirit by speaking. The effects of words in the realm of the spirit are far more important than in the physical.
The scripture above teaches us that God created the world, including everything that we see, and of course the world we do not see, by speaking. This will be laughable to those who do not understanding spiritual things. Are we serious to think that the galaxies came into being when God simply spoke it from His mouth? Yes, that is what happened! We can only understand this by faith. It is no doubt that the world will find it foolishness, because we understand it by faith. Learn to talk. This is not merely trying to avoid saying the wrong things, but much more speaking the right things. God has put His Word in your mouth. Start speaking to circumstances, and call those things that are not as though they are. That is how God functions!
Ponder upon the verse above, begin to mutter it, and then declare it out. Declare that your life is being framed by the Word of God you are declaring.
Thank the Lord for giving us His Word. Ask the Spirit to teach you the mysteries behind words, and enable you to watch your tongue.
Start speaking! Declare the decree of God over your life (Ps. 2:7). Watch your words, because they have spiritual implications that many of us do not realize. Do not use your mouth to declare death over your own life. Rather, begin speaking life.
