The Words We Speak 2

“…Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing” (Romans 4:17 – NLT)

This is another installment on our words:

If we believe God then our words should line up with what we believe about God. We say that God has created everything and can do anything…until we run into something that seems impossible to us. When that happens, often we then place the same limitation on God. How you say? Whenever we say, ‘this thing will never work,’ or ‘I’ll never get out of this,’ and ‘things never work out for me.’

These types of phrases can be devastating to anyone—especially Christians. What are we saying, when we use our words to confirm the difficulty of a situation instead of the possibilities of God’s deliverance! Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 18:27), regardless of what it may look like to us. Therefore, we should be speaking the good we expect to come to pass.

Our responsibility is to believe God—who alone is life—and watch things turn around!

Look…Christians are called believers for a reason. We believe in a God who cannot fail! So let’s practice getting our speaking in line with our believing and see our lives, our experiences, and even our world change!

Remember to have faith first…

    Hi Sebastian, very True what you and Ron shared, our words and actions must reflect our Faith in a Loving God who has planed good for us and does not want to harm us. He does not lie or promise what He wont give.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    There is something God will not do and that is evil or will He willing allow it … Love can’t do evil and God is Love, we were created to Love 100%, everything God made was good, the opposite of Love is evil, choosing evil brings spiritual death. He created Satan or the destroyer but not evil he chose because of pride to become evil and to do evil.

    If God created evil that would make God evil, He hates evil so why would He create it, people say so would have a choice but choosing evil is not God’s choice for us, evil is given birth when there is no real Love and it dies when Love is perfected in us, until we are Born again of God’s seed we have Adams D.N.A, or seed ,we must put our evil flesh to death by the Spirit, disobedience is evil and this is what Adam chose because of listening to Eve. God gave us free will to decide for ourselves to live or die spiritually.

    Christian Love Anne.

    Recently I studied Isaiah 40: 12-31~ Our God is so great, when we do speak the words you wrote about, not only are we calling the LORD a liar, but we are trying to comprehend Him with our feeble mind. A tool the enemy is using more and more with those I minister to and with. I shout a loud AMEN brother! Thank you

      Hello and thank you for the Amen brother! The greatness of our God far surpasses ANYTHING we could EVER come up against! However, it is up to us to confirm His word in our lives by believing, trusting, and speaking what we believe. Not just to have something to say but to actually give His mighty power the permission to create His will in our lives! God bless you and yours! — Sebastian

      Hi Ron! Your point is correct! Faith must have corresponding action to be effective. One way for us to add works to our faith is to speak in line with the word of God. When we do this, we give the power of God permission to act in our affairs.

      We can say we believe God is a healer but if all we talk about is how sick we are, we are working against ourselves. Jesus said, “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?”(Matthew 6:31 KJV)
      When we raise doubt about God’s provision, we limit His power in our lives.

      Thanks Ron, for adding to the discussion.

    Thank you so much, Sebastian. Praying to stay silent until I can line my words up with His! God bless you for helping us with this!

      Hi Debbie. Of course, silence has it’s place but we have God’s creative power within us and it is put to work through the words of mouths. We have to study His Word to determine what He says about a thing and say that.

      Instead of saying I am sick, say I am well…because that is what God says about you! The scriptures says: “let the weak say I am strong.”
