As Jesus taught in the synagogue at Capernaum, the Bible describes it this way: “And they were astonished at His doctrine: for His word was with power.” (Luke 4:32) His word was with Power! WOW!
Dear Ones, please get this truth in your spirit. There is power in the Word. Jesus spoke as one who knew the truth because He is TRUTH. He, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, has to speak with authority because He is the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1: 1, 3)
There is creative power in the Word. As people of God, learn to speak the desired results to your circumstance –
- “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
- “I will succeed in this business endeavor.”
- “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.”
Speak a positive confession into the lives of your children and grandchildren. (May I suggest you pronounce upon your children the blessing found in Numbers 6:24-26). There is overcoming power in the Word. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” (Revelations 12:11)
We are children of the Most High God. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit displays God’s power through each of us as a means of helping the entire church. If God be for us, who then can be against us? The Word will work if you will work the Word. Mark 11:23, “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” The Word tells us that “Michael, one of the mightiest of the angels, when he was arguing with Satan about Moses’ body, did not dare to accuse even Satan, or jeer at him, but simply said ‘The Lord rebuke you’.”
Dear Ones, our authority, yes, our power is found in the infallible Word of God. Love it, learn it, use it, and be blessed.
