“Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable]” Psalm 119:89 AMP.
“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” Genesis 1:1-3.
From the above verses in Genesis, we see that the Spirit of God was moving on the face of the waters before God spoke, but nothing happened until God said. When God released His words of faith, creation happened. Everything in this material world is the result of the Word of God.
And Jesus holds the universe together by the word of His power. “He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature,upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power” (Hebrews 1:3 AMPC) .
God’s Word is eternal, unchangeable, forever settled in heaven. The material universe, what we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell is temporal. It can change and it does change. When you apply the unchangeable to the changeable, it is obvious which one will yield – the changeable.
When we take the unchangeable Word of God and apply it in faith to the temporal world, the temporal world must conform to the Word of God. Jesus demonstrated this principle while He lived on earth. When he spoke, demons fled, diseases were healed, the dead were brought to life (“And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth...” John 11:43 KJV), food multiplied, and winds and storms ceased.
Jesus said He did what His Father told Him to do.
“I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me” (John 14:30-31 NIV).
By the power of God’s Word, Jesus lived and ministered on this death filled planet totally free from all its bondages. Jesus desires us, as born-again believers, to speak His Word in faith, and expect it to change the negative circumstances around us through the power of His unchangeable Word.
Our words have power and we need to be careful how we use them. The following ten Scripture verses speak about our words:
And lastly, Satan can steal from us with our words.
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:6-7 ESV).
From the above verse, we see we have the choice to waiver or to receive. We can’t do both at the same time. One of Satan’s tactics is to get us to doubt and waiver. We can either give in to the doubting thoughts and give place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27) or we can stand on the veracity of God’s Word. We are the ones who decide if we will allow Satan to steal God’s promises from us. Remember, Satan’s only has one plan – to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10).
We need to be like God, Who calls the things that are not, as though they were. “As it is written: I have appointed you to be the father of many nations. So Abraham is our father in the eyes of God in whom he had faith, the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that don’t exist into existence” (Romans 4:17 CEB).
Be assured, born-again friend, God’s unchangeable Word, spoken and acted on in faith, will release the power of God and change the circumstances you face.
