The Word of God is Alive!

Heb 4:12: For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow.

God’s Word is alive and full of power, it has within itself the ability to give life, to heal and to enable Christians to live in victory. The problem is too few Christians understand just how powerful the Word of God is, and even fewer understand how powerful God’s Word is in the life of a believer when it is spoken in faith. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that the power of life and death is in the tongue, the words the we speak can produce life, healing and blessings or they can bring death, sickness and curses. God said to one man, “My Words in YOUR MOUTH are just as powerful as they are in mine.” Wow think about that! We can and should be creating a better world for ourselves; we create the world that we desire by confessing God’s Word over our lives. You see the truth is that we are today what we are because of the words that we have spoken in the past. Words, both positive and negative set the landmarks in your life. Jesus said in Mark 11:23 that we can have what we say, the problem is that we have been saying what we have, for an example, someone who the devil is trying to make sick instead of confessing, “By His stripes I AM HEALED,” are saying “I’m sick”, “I’ve got the flu” or some other thing, there is no power or virtue in confessing sickness, there is no faith in those words to change sickness to health, to make that change we must boldly confess “By His stripes I AM HEALED.” People often ask me to pray for “Their cancer” or whatever, what they do not realise is that they are making a confession of ownership, that cancer does not belong to a born again child of God and it does not come from God either, but it comes from Satan right out of the pit of hell. Instead of making a confession of ownership of sickness make it a confession of ownership of divine healing. Remember, God’s Word is alive and full of power and according to Proverbs 4 it is medicine to all our flesh, so keep taking the medicine by speaking words of faith and watch your circumstance change.
