The Sure Word for Today: God Created Me In His Image.
God’s Creative Power — Part 4.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 1:27 (KJV).
The Spirit gives life; the flesh profits nothing; every word that proceeds out of your mouth are Spirit and they are life. You must be mindful, conscious, aware, and take responsibility for your words. Spoken words program your spirit or heart either to success or defeat. Words are containers. They carry faith or fear, and they produce after their kind. When God saw the darkness on the earth, he said let there be light and there was light. His word was a container of light.
God desired light, so he called forth his desire to materialise. We are not told how long God waited for the light he called to manifest. God called into existence the light that was not yet existing in the physical realm but is real and existing in the spiritual realm. He saw the light first in the spirit and called it to manifest in the natural. What you see is what you get. He called the solution and not the problem.
Faith comes by the hearing and the hearing by the Word of God. Faith comes more quickly when you hear yourself quoting, speaking, and saying the things God said. You will more readily receive God’s Word into your spirit by hearing yourself say it than if you hear someone else. It is a scientific application of the wisdom of God to the psychological makeup of human to speak and hear your word. It builds and increases your faith faster than when you hear someone else speaking the same word.
You must begin to live in the authority of the Word. God’s Word is creative power. That creative power is produced by the heart, formed by the tongue, and released out of the mouth in the form of the word. I described the tongue as the gun that one uses to fire a bullet where the word is the bullet. If you can understand the Spirit and the power of the spoken word, then you will understand that long prayers are not necessary. Just speaking the word will bring you what you desire. God has given you his creative power in Word form.
