The Power of Words

"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
A few Sundays ago I heard a pastor speak on the power of words. I thought, "An all familiar message often found in the Christian sermon world..." At first I wanted to brush it aside thinking, "I've heard it all before... I get it.. words are important..blah blah."But thankfully the power of Holy Spirit whispered and said, 'pay attention Kayla. There's more here..'
Minutes, maybe even seconds later, I received a new revelation of what the power of words means. I used to only hear this "power" only from a negative standpoint. Still today, I think we focus too much on the negative power of our words and not enough of the positive power of our words! When we speak with the power and authority that we have as believers, there is kingdom to be won back from the enemy! There is life to be built, prophecies to be spoken.
Yes, negative words are like dynamite, but I believe that positive words are even stronger and more powerful dynamite! These words are the real dynamite, good and productive dynamite. Dynamite that blows through mountains, blows through strongholds. Jesus said,
"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can SAY to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
God's Word has the words that blow up obstacles and barriers that are keeping us from the destiny and purpose God has for us! When the Israelites defeated Jericho they shouted after they marched. And the walls came a-tumbling down!
Activate the tongue that has been redeemed by Jesus Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit and you will see walls come tumbling down. I believe we are to take what the Lord is speaking in and over our lives and speak it aloud too. That is how we fight well.
-Write out and speak the Word of God out loud.
-Write out and speak Faith Confessions and Truths
-Tell the enemy what his place is. Remind him and yourself who God is!
-Tell the situation in front of you who your God is whom you serve.
If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
