Did you wake up this morning and jump out of bed and say “Good Morning, Lord” or did you jump out of bed and say, “Good lord, it's morning” and then groan?
Psalm 118:24 says: "This is the day the Lord hath made, let us rejoice be glad."
We are not promised tomorrow, yesterday is gone, we only have today, His Presence. How we lead our lives, moment by moment will impact our future. The words coming out of our mouths speak life or death, blessing or cursing.
Genesis 1:1-3 — "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. 2. And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep, And the Spirit of God moved upon the waters. 3 And God said, 'Let there be light and there was light.' 4. And God saw the light, and it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 6. And God called the light day and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."
As you read on in the first chapter of Genesis, you read "and God said." Everything God said in creating the earth was with the words of His mouth. He didn’t say, "Well what should I create today?" He knew exactly what he was creating and he spoke it into existence and thus created the world.
We also have that same power as born again children of God. We can speak the right words, the positive words into our lives, our families lives, our neighbor lives, where we work, etc.
Where I worked, my friend told about the time she did a little experiment. She said something, none of it being true, and put it out in the air. By the time it got back to her, the whole statement had completely changed, none of it was the same. So this is what your words do: they can completely change a situation from bad to worse or from good to bad.
The best thing a father can do for his children is to speak loving, positive words about their mother. That way your children learn the meaning of real love.
Genesis 1:27 — "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them. 28a: And God BLESSED them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful unto them, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it."
After God created the earth, He blessed man, and it was good. From the Beginning, God spoke the world into existence, and He blessed man. 1 Peter 2:9 says — But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of dark into His marvelous light."
God has called each and every one of us , as children of the living God, to spread the good news of the gospel to a dying world. Yes, there are wars, rumors of wars, but it is up to us to speak the Word of God over any and all situations. Jesus is coming back soon, and he is coming back for a united church so began to speak the Word of God, over your families, neighbors, work, etc.
Let us unite together as the hands and feet of Jesus and speak the Good News.
You may not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, so right now say: "Lord Jesus, please forgive me of my sins, wash me clean as snow, I invite you into my heart and make you my Lord and Savior."
In Jesus' name, Amen. Get into the Word of God, get into a Bible believing church and let your walk with God grow.
Thank you for reading and remember, as you Speak the Word, JESUS is LORD!
