Your Words Carry Power   Leave a comment

Good morning all, A few minutes before reading this devotional email from Joseph Prince, I laid hands on my dog and prayed for her to be healed, because she threw up earlier and was breathing hard. While my hands were on my dog I began to have doubt and wonder if I should be doing this because it’s a dog. The Holy Spirit encouraged me and helped me believe in Amelia’s (my dog) healing. He said "my words have power". So I spoke healing in her. I just checked her and she’s breathing fine. Hallelujah; ALL Glory goes to God. The power that dwells in us come from our King, Jesus Christ. God says we are better than animals. Matthew 6:26 says “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” If you have doubt for your healing or someone else’s healing, believe you are loved by God and it’s His will for our healing. If we ask and believe, we receive.

Thank You Holy Spirit for helping me. For always being here for us all to help us. Thank You Father for Your Son and not leaving us helpless. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit. Thank You Jesus for EVERYTHING. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Ecclesiastes 8:4; Where the word of a king is, there is power…

In Bible times, a king’s word carried tremendous power. What he decreed would come to pass. It would be done. For example, if he said, “Raise the taxes,” the taxes would be raised.

Do you know that we are kings? The Bible tells us that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made us kings. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as kings in Christ, our words carry power too.

When we place our hands on a sick person and say, “Be healed,” the person is healed. When we lay hands on our children and say, “Be blessed,” our children are blessed. There is power in our words because they are the words of kings!

When I was a young Christian in my teens, I wanted to practice what I had learnt about the power of my words. There was this particular plant near my home and whenever I passed by it, I would say to it, “Be cursed in Jesus’ name!”

Many days passed. And I will never forget the day when I noticed that the leaves of the plant had turned brown! You may want to try this at home with your potted plants, but bless them instead!

Since our words carry power, can you imagine the harm we do when we say to our loved ones things like, “You are always so careless”, “You are good for nothing” or “You are so stupid”? We are cursing them!

The devil is happy when you use the power of your words against yourself and your loved ones. He wants to see you defeated. So instead of saying, “I am always short of money,” say, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1) Instead of saying, “I am so useless. I can’t do anything,” start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

Beloved, remember that as a king, what you say will come to pass because where the word of a king is, there is power. So learn to say what God says about you in His Word and see His promises come to pass in your life!
