Power in Words

Hello Friends!  I'm excited about the topic of today's I've got Power post on Words.

We use words to communicate or thoughts and feelings; We use words to give direction, we use words to compliment, we use words to scold, we use words to express love, we use words to curse; in essence, we use words as our primary means of communication.   The question is, how often do we use words to create?

To create means to bring into existence; cause to happen. A few words with similar meaning to create are produce, generate, build. 

Let us take time to meditate on the fact that Words have Power. This is evident from the account of the Creation of the World as recorded in:

Genesis Chapter 1
 New Living Translation
 
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light
 
Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.”  And that is what happened.
 
Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened.
 
Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened.
 
Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years.  Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened
 
Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind.
 
The earth was created by God's word.  Do you know that our Words have creative Power too? Really they do!

The bible tells us in Genesis 1:26 that God decided to make us, humans, in His Image and Likeness. This means we were created to share in the attributes and characteristics God including His Power.

As stated earlier, to create means to bring into existence; cause to happen. One of the ways we use the creative, building Power of Words is through prayer.

 
Psalm 51:10-12(NIV)
 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
 
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.



Another way to use the creative, building Power of Words is through our declarations/affirmations.  What we say (good or bad) is what we build/create.

 
Proverbs 18:20-21(MSG)
 Words satisfy the mind as much as fruit does the stomach;
good talk is as gratifying as a good harvest.
 
Words kill, words give life;
they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.


What do you pray about? What do you say often?  Are your words building and creating what you desire?  Now is the time to create, re-create and/or repair through the Power of our Words.
 
 
Psalm 19:14(NKJV)
 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
