Power To Decree!
This morning, I would to share on the believer’s “Power To Decree”.
God’s Words are powerful. They contain the miraculous power of God to create. In Greek, the word power has been described as “miraculous power, might and strength”. We are given the “Power To Decree”.
As believers, our words have creative power and it is important that we choose what we say to one and another. The Bible has good counsel how we should talk and speak. And this is clearly explained in the scripture in Isaiah 55:11:-
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Through the prophet Isaiah, God has made it plainly clear that His words once spoken will accomplish whatever and whenever we delcare them. This is an importance and powerful principle for us to obey.
However, do note that the above scripture is in the Old Testament. If it carries such power, then surely words spoken by New Testament believers will carry even more power!
Present day believers that is, living in the age after the resurrection of Jesus, should therefore exercise caution in their words spoken. Let’s read Revelation 1:6 to catch a glimpse of who we are and why our words carry such potent power as declared in this scripture:-
“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.”
Dear Brethren, do you see how important our words are? As kings, we are given the right to “DECREE”! As you are aware, only Kings carry the authority and power to decree, not the people under their rule.
So go ahead, whatever things you want to come to pass, so long as they are according to God’s Will, you can declare and decree them.
