As image bearers of God, we have been created to operate exactly like He does. Do you think if God was present physically in your situation actually living your life the situation would remain the same ? So does it not then mean there is a difference in belief system and methods adopted by God? Whenever we are encountered by a situation in life that is challenging instead of breaking down into fear based reactions why not say ” I wonder how God would handle this”? The most accurate example we have to see how God would operate is Jesus as He is His expressed image in all fullness. When we see Jesus we see that He would turn every situation for God’s glory. He was all the time so full of faith that caused Him to always speak things into existence even though they do not exist.
Romans 4:17 tells us this
(As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead, and calls those things which are not as though they were.
This is the principle Jesus operated by so why not make it real in our lives as well ?
Here is an interview of Annette Capps on this subject who shares with us how to accurately do this. Make it your own today!
Dear friends, as you already know as Christians who have been given the word of God to operate with and live by, we are still constantly being bombarded by words, ideas and traditions from all around us. It is life saving to focus on word of God and use it as a filter to view the world and to filter what is not of God. Often we hear people saying to us, “the flu season is on, have you finished your turn catching it this time ?”. If we are not careful and do not take note of that when flu does make its way to our colleague sitting next to us for example and we are beginning to show early symptoms of it, we will end up having it. The sad part would be that we agreed to that suggestion whereas God’s intention of divine health for us is quite clear. Why would Jesus go through all those stripes ? Was it so that we would be susceptible to the flu and finish our round of having it? This was a simple example.
The same question can be asked about word curses people deliberately direct towards us. We cannot feel overpowered by it as though we cannot do anything about it. Sometimes these word curses come against us as though they are God’s word. Words can be spoken against your destinies, children, marriage, parents, work , ministries, how much progress we would make in our lives. If we do not have the word of God hidden in our hearts and a lively ongoing and deep fellowship with Holy Spirit we will surely succumb to those word curses by either knowing something doesn’t fit right and not knowing what to do about it or ever worse thinking they are from God. It is never God’s will to bring us down. It is never God’s will to break us using sickness or disease.
The moment you recognize these word curses you have to take authority over them and completely disassociate yourself with them and break any agreement with them. Watch this short video by Ryan LeStrange who teaches us how we can break any word curse.
Our glorious God does everything with His word. Forever His word is settled in Heaven.He sends His word to heal and deliver us from destruction.He gives light through His word. He melts snow with His word, causes the water to flow and commands winds to blow. He established heavens with His word. With His word He commanded light to be. Everything in heavens and earth is under His authority and His word is the currency so to speak that moves things. We get to operate according to His word but at the same time He has given us the power to use our tongues to cause certain actions to take place. We can understand this with the analogy that citizens of a Kingdom can choose to either operate according to their King’s decree or not. If they want to see Kingdom results then they will have to align with their King’s decrees and make it active in their lives. But if they choose not to align then their results will be according to what they speak and the King would not be responsible for that. In the same way to get God’s results we must align and operate according to His word. One of the best things about our God is He is God of all life and He wants us to live in the same prosperity and abundance of life just because He has created us in His image. Our King wants each and every citizen to prosper. Therefore our lives and especially the words or confessions we make in and about our lives and situations must correspond to the words of the King we serve. To get the maximum and the best yield out of a produce it is best to sow the word of God. We must be able to take the word of God which just as a seed remains passive till its activated in our lives. Word of God is active but it is not an automatic thing if we are not consciously releasing the power of it into our lives and situations. For example Jesus has already paid for the healing for everyone as the bible tells us that by His stripes we are healed. But do we still not see sickness and disease in the world? It is upto us Christians we take His word and release the power of it by faith and bring healing into a person’s life. In this manner it is not an automatic thing.
If we understand all this so far, we can now understand that words and confessions we speak and make on a constant basis are dictating how we our lives here on earth are turning out. We will have what we say as Jesus taught us. Therefore is it not such a privilege to have the word of God and release it into our lives and situations and see the alignment?
