Just Say The Word

This is a big deal. It’s HUGE:

But the centurion said, "Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.” ~ Matthew 8:8

How are things accomplished in this kingdom? I am talking about this kingdom where Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, this Kingdom of Heaven that is entered by faith in Christ, this Kingdom of God.

Words.

Words are the currency of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Perhaps I am selling it a bit short here. Not simply words, not just any words, this kingdom runs on words of faith.

Don’t get me wrong here. Faith results in actions.

But understand this:

Faith filled words,
words filled with expectation
words filled with hope

set heaven’s gears turning.

Angels move at the sound of His voice.

Oceans obey His voice.

The universe was created by a grand heavenly voice filled eager expectation.

His voice, the voice of God, the words of God, the Word of God, is the most powerful force, the most powerful substance, the most powerful being in the universe.

And He wants you to speak.

Faith filled words,
words filled with expectation
words filled with hope

to set heaven’s gears into motion.

As you set your affections on Him, and begin to speak His words, the words He puts in your heart, the words He speaks in your soul, as you agree with Him, and let your (His) words flow, your world will be moved, your universe will come under heaven’s influence.

BenCome back tomorrow for the flip side.

See you then.

    "Sing onto the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!" (Exodus 15:21) This was a popular song almost thirty years ago for us old Charis-maniacs.

    Just really beginning to know the power of faith filled Word vs the other side. Things had to get a little muddy there for me so I could really see in action what this post says. Glad I am now on the journey of discovering just how POWER filled those Words of faith and declaration can be! Thanks for another great post!

      Thanks Gayle - it is amazing how much power our words have. Even is you just look at how they impact our own attitudes. God has chosen preaching of all things to bring the gospel to the world. Big stuff.
