Only the WORD

Written by Oma Okwara

"And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing; nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net" (Luke 5:5)

"My son, attend to my words, incline thine ear unto my sayings... for they are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh" (Prov 4:20-22)

"....... but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed" (Matthew 8:8)

The words we speak are very powerful and have in them the ability to effect changes. Little wonder the bible says; life and death are in the power of the tongue, and whosoever loves it shall eat the fruit thereof. If our own words can be this powerful and transforming, how much more then the words of God, by whom we came into existence.
God's word is infallible (Is. 55:10-11). It has the ability to give life no matter the deadness of the situation to which it is sent to. It was all that was needed to bring Jairus daughter back to life (Mark 5:41). The dry bones received life by the word. Even fig tree withered only by the words spoken by Jesus.

"He sent his word and healed them and delivered them from their destructions"
The word cannot be limited. For his mouth has given the order, and his spirit will gather them together (Is 34:16). No wonder the centurion asked Jesus to speak the word only, which was all the servant needed to be healed.
If you receive and appropriate God's word for your life, it can alter every other report, every other judgement and every other decision of man cos the witness of God is greater than that of man (1 John 5:9).

How to appropriate God's word in your life:

FAITH: For he that believes, there shall be a performance of that which is said concerning him.
PAY ATTENTION TO GOD'S WORD (Prov 4:20). Don't attend to your dreams, rumours, or even the doctor's report.Be rest assured that it is only the council of the Lord that shall stand.
HOLD UNTO THE WORD TENACIOUSLY . Never trade it for anything whatsoever, cos it's even more precious than gold.
ENGAGE IN THE WORD THERAPY. Massage your system with the word. Don't stop saying it. For God will do exactly as he hears you say.
KEEP THE WORD IN YOUR HEART (Ps. 119:11) Let it go beyond your mouth, for your heart is the ground wherein the word will become fruitful.
BEHAVE THE WORD. Let it become your lifestyle.

His word is able to keep us and give us an inheritance among the saints. Never give yourself an option to his word. If he has said it, then it must surely come to pass for he watches over his word to perform it.
