    The Importance of Speaking God’s Word

    In life, we all face trials and we may face mountains. We must know how to be fully prepared and wear the armor of God. We must clothe ourselves in Christ. One of the most important weapons for warfare is the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God, the Bible (Ephesians 6). We must have the Word quick on our tongue, and know scripture. God spoke the world into existence, and the Bible says we can speak to a mountain and it SHALL be moved.

      

    Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)

      

    The Bible also tells us that the power of the tongue can produce life or death (Proverbs 18:21). We must be careful of what we say and think because it will shape our environment and even our faith. God spoke light, darkness, fruit, stars, planets, people, water and land into existence. Words are very powerful.

      

    God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. (Genesis 1:3-5)

      

    The Lord is very powerful and created us in His image and likeness. We have the same authority over the earth and land. We can declare and decree things and they can manifest. We can rebuke and loose things into the heavens and onto earth. We must know and understand our authority. We must stay connected to God’s power and spirit in order to have full dominion over the enemy. (John 15:5)

      

    Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 18:18)

      

    We must not only believe God’s Word, but also speak it and use it as a weapon. The Sword of the spirit is how we combat the enemy. We must also obey and do God’s Word. It’s not enough to read God’s Word—we must apply it to our life. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word.

      

    Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (James 1:22)

    Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. (Romans 10:17)

      

    To combat the enemy, Jesus spoke the scriptures by saying, “It is written.” The enemy tempted Christ when he was in the wilderness, but the Lord declared the scriptures out loud and that power resisted the enemy and rebuked the devil to flee. We can do that same thing, which is why it’s so important to read, memorize and declare the Bible. We must write it on the tablets of our hearts.

      

    Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4)

    1. My fave verse is II Corinthians 4:18 – “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (NKJV) This verse reminds me of what is truly important, and gives me hope of my future in Heaven w/ Jesus. <3

      I used to read my Bible everyday and memorize a bunch of scriptures. Gonna get back to it now! 😛
