May 25: Speak Forth Your Next Level

Genesis 1:1-3

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

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.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Mark 11:23

For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in His heart but shall believe that those which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.

There is a link between your mouth, the words that proceed out of your mouth, and your next level, your ‘going to’. Now, how possible is that? The Word tells us that words produce realities. The world that we live in today came out of words. Genesis 1:1-3 says, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth; and the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and God said…” Between the period of darkness, the earth being void, and the new realities that came into existence thereafter, was the potent power of the spoken Word set in motion. God spoke this world into existence, and He showed us how He did it, that we may follow in His steps. Genesis 1:26 reveals that man is the image and likeness of God. God made man so that we might take after Him in all things. Man, like God, is a creator. When God created the heaven and the earth, He used the creative material of His Word. He spoke everything into existence. John 1:1-3 tells us that by the Word all things were made, and nothing was made without Him. We are creators like God. We are speaking spirits like God. We are His image and His very likeness in Christ. We too, can speak our own realities into existence, just like God. Hallelujah! This is so comforting! We are no longer at the mercy of life’s situations and circumstances. What comfort!

You too, can speak forth your next level, depending on what you actually desire to see. You can have whatsoever you say. When you truly believe according to God’s Word and speak forth that which you believe, you’ll see it leap into being for you. This is the thrust of our opening Scripture. You can take God’s Word at face value. So, when He says you can speak forth your next level, then that means you really can.  Don’t say “Well, I’ve heard a lot about the word of faith; it’s just what some people believe. No! It’s not what some people believe, it’s God’s Word! 2 Corinthians 4:13 says, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed and therefore have I spoken, we also believe and therefore speak.You can speak your next level according to your faith. Load up God’s Word in your heart and go ahead and speak it forth. That’s your next level.

 

My Solid Front (Confession): 

In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I am blessed, I am fruitful, I am making progress. All things are working together for my good. I enjoy the peace of God all over in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
