The power of words

In the book of The Bible, “Hebrews 11:3” says: “Through faith we understand that the universe was framed by the word of GOD so that the things which are seen were made from nothing.” Everything you see, handle and feel, came out of words. In fact, words are the most powerful tools in the universe. Kingdoms and nations are ruled by decrees, ordinances or constitutions which are all written in words. Words have always been the greatest weapons at the disposal of every human being who has ever lived on earth. Actually, words are great assets.

Anyone who carefully studies the first book of The Bible (Genesis), will find out that GOD created the whole universe through the simple use of words. He stood before the land and waters, and declared that they should bring forth an abundance of creatures; he spoke to the firmament as well and it responded. On and on, GOD continued declaring words until the whole universe was set up. Most probably, there wouldn’t have been anything in existence if GOD hadn’t spoken. The method that GOD used in making everything manifest (physically and spiritually), was by speaking them out. Actually, everything was with Him before creation came into existence. You were created in his image and likeness, therefore you too posses the ability to speak out and create your own world (through the use of your own words).

Words are one of the most important tools you need on earth. Make optimum use of them! Each morning, make it a habit to speak into the day and declare the things you  want to achieve in future. You ought to always speak positively and declare the right words which will be more effective in the spirit world than in the physical world. All things (visible and invisible) have their roots/foundations firmly anchored in the almighty power GOD; for without him, nothing would have been created. If words, which  have spiritual power in them, cease to exist, then all things will disintegrate, become empty and void of any meaningful substance.

In the book of Matthew 8:8, a centurion made a remarkable statement which can reveal the powerful effect of words. He said: “I am not worthy that thou [Jesus] come under my roof, but speak the words only and my servant shall be healed.” A careful study of The Bible—all through—reveals that words have no respect for a barrier like distance: distance cannot prevent words from exhibiting the effects of their inherent latent power. Words are so powerful; that’s why you must make your thoughts, actions and comments to be aligned with the nature of GOD’s belief and words. Jesus said: “The words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.” Words are spirit! Speak positive words in alignment with belief in GOD, and the spirit of GOD will make your spoken words become a reality and physically manifest the things you desire.

  1. Thanks for this post – I agree completely, The Word of God Is so Powerful. The words people use are also powerful, for good or bad. The cruel words people used against me as weapons when I was a child and growing up almost destroyed me, and God continues to gradually set me free from their devastating effects. But Praise be to God, Who always leads us in Triumph in Christ Jesus – He has won he victory. God Is retraining me to retrain my mind and to be set free by the power of His Word, the Truth of Scripture – I am learning that the horrible things people said over me were weapons of darkness, but the Truth for all humanity is (Psalm 139) that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in His Image. I thank God that in His Perfect time He will cause all things to work together for good, and the Goodness and Truth of His Words will overcome all the cruel lies and words of darkness. God bless you and keep preaching Christ Jesus. 🙂
