“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11

There is life-changing power in the words of God. God spoke the world into existence with His words of power. He upholds the universe by His mighty word (Hebrews 1:3). We can change our world by the words we speak. We can prophesy over our lives.

How often we speak negative words over ourselves and our situations. Or we use our words to describe the problems and challenges we face in a negative and hopeless light. With our words we question our abilities… let opportunities pass us by… and talk ourselves out of blessings and miracles that God so wants to give us.

When we believe our feelings… when we let the world influence us… when we believe the lies and deceits of the enemy, our lives take a negative path. We can counter the negativity that we have internalized over the years by speaking God’s truth. We can use the powerful and hope-filled words of God to change our perspective, our outlook and our circumstances.

God’s Word is filled with promises. We can speak to our world with His life-changing words and see His goodness manifest in our lives. We can move into His divine will and abundance. For He has promised that His words will accomplish all that He desires and purposes.

With our words we either glorify God or we glorify the enemy. When we speak words of criticism, anxiousness, fear, condemnation, doubt, discouragement or defeat, our focus shifts to all that is wrong in our lives. We believe our words, our thoughts, our feelings. Our outlook turns negative. We are essentially glorifying the enemy’s work in our world.

When we speak God’s words, we remember His unending love for us and His eternal promises. We remember our identity in Christ. Our focus shifts to one of positivity. We sense His presence with us… and His peace and joy fill our hearts. We remember our future forever with Him. As we glorify God by speaking His words, our hope is renewed.

“You will… decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and the light of God’s favor will shine upon your ways.”Job 22:28

Believe who God says you are. Be who He created you to be. Take hold of the opportunities He brings your way. Live in the abundance of His divine will and purpose. For He has only the best in mind for you.

Affirm who you are in Christ. Affirm the promises for you in Scripture. Affirm God’s words of power. Speak life… speak health… speak grace… speak blessings. Prophesy over yourself, your family, your loved ones, your world. God’s Word is powerful to change lives.

Personalize God’s promises in Scripture and apply them to the areas where you need His intervention. Here are just a few of the vast number of promises God has given us in His Word. Keep these Scriptures close at hand and speak them daily. Make these promises your own. See how God will transform your life and the lives of those you love.
