The spoken and written word are so important and powerful. Its power is often taken for granted, overlooked, and misused. In this series I hope to explore and shed light on the magnitude of the God-given ability to communicate and how it effects our entire being – mind, body, and spirit.
Starting at the beginning…
In Genesis, we open up to God having created the heavens and the earth. Then we read in Genesis 1:2 - 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 face of the waters. I love this verse as it gives me such a visual of a very involved Creator moving over His creation, deeply connected to it, watching over it, planning His next move to beautify and fill it.
Then, it happens – God SAID… He spoke and things began to happen in an instant. Heaven and earth took shape, day and night were set in place to establish time and seasons, the waters were separated and land sprung forth from the deep. (Can you imagine the earthquakes during that time?) Plant life and animals of every kind took shape and were given their survival instructions planted in the secret place of instinct. And, God saw that it was all good. Every time He sent His creative word forth, something brand new and wonderful resulted.
Words spoken from the mouth of God are full of life and creativity. We, being made in their image (Gen 1:26 NIV), carry everything that was embedded into our DNA. The sooner we clear the brain-fog and draw closer to our Creator and Redeemer, the sooner we will tap into the explosive power that our words hold as well.
This starts a series of posts on the subject of the power of our words. There is the potential to go deep and wide on the subject, so I’m staying flexible to the length and direction that the Lord takes this revelatory study. Thank you for coming along for the journey and please let me know what you think.
Be blessed and be a blessing!
