THE POWER OF SPEECH Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God… (Hebrews
Genesis chapter one shows us how God created
all things; it was through words. He spoke, and
everything He said, became. That’s because speech (words)
create sound waves—energy. This is one reason why
meditating on the Word is so important.
Meditation has three phases or levels. Level one is when
you speak under your voice. Then in the second level, you’re
literally talking or muttering. The third and final level is when
you shout or roar; you’re talking aloud. This final phase is so
important because of the power of sound or energy of words.
This is why when you read scriptures, you should
oftentimes read them aloud. Read your Rhapsody of Realities
aloud, including the prayers and confessions. Your affirmation
of the Word is very important. God gave us a tongue so we
could talk, and when you talk, energy is released.
Through the energy of words, God recreated and brought order to the world, which hitherto was a chaotic mass (Genesis 1). Ephesians 5:1 tells us to emulate Him as His beloved children. What God did in Genesis 1 was for us to emulate. With words, you’re to maintain the beauty and glory of your life and change circumstances and situations
in line with God’s will. By your words, you can chart your course in victory and success.
Jesus said you shall have what you say (Mark 11:23); so don’t keep quiet. There’s a reason for speaking. Even the very principle of salvation stresses the importance of speaking. It says, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:10). Confession here means, “saying what God has said in agreement with Him.” It’s translated from the Greek word “Homologeo”—which primarily means
to say the same thing as another in agreement. That’s what makes His Word effectual in your life.
It’s not enough to “believe” the Word of God with your heart; you have to declare it with your mouth to experience the blessings therein. The Bible says Christ is your life. Christ is your wisdom. Christ is your righteousness. Christ in you, the hope of glory. For the rest of today, meditate on these truths about Christ, saying them aloud every so often.
Dear Father, I thank you for the gift and power of speech. As I speak forth your Word, your light manifests and obliterates every form of darkness in my path. My life is beautiful, excellent, and full of glory. I walk in health and strength, prospering in all that I do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
