According to the world standard, words can be likened to an egg that once broken cannot be fixed again, therefore, indicating or emphasising on the importance of spoken words. Which words have you spoken over your life and you think need to be reversed? Or which words have people spoken over your life and all aspects of your life that you think need to be changed?
Who can speak, and have it happened if the Lord has not decreed it (Lamentations 3:37; NIV)
Who can command things to happen without the Lord’s permission? (Lamentation 3:37; NLT)
Who is he that saith and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? (Lamentations 3:37; KJV).
Why focus so much on what people say (a man/woman like yourself), especially their negative words when the final authority or say over your life is in God? God’s word should be the only and final verdict over your life and situations. The time wasted in worrying about people’s words/decree over your life can be used wisely if channelled in the right direction: invest quality time in the word of God to find out what God has said concerning you and the situations of your life. Make God’s word the focus of your life. The mistake we make as individuals is that we tend to believe the promises or word of a man in high position (e.g. President of a nation) more than the word of Him (GOD) that created the man. Man can make promises and fail but God will never break His promises because He is a Covenant keeping God.
Truly, let’s critically examine and analyse Lam 3:37, who can truly bring to pass his decree without the permission of the Creator of Heavens and the earth? No one…..and never will there be. Where the word of a King is, there is power (Ecclesiastes 8:4) and since JESUS is the King of Kings, so in His word is power.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires (Hebrews 4:12; NLT).
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12; KJV).
It is high time you believe the authenticity of God’s word, people’s words/promises may change and/or fail but the word of God will never lose His potency because He can never change, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). The word of God according to Hebrews 4:12 is said to be quick to perform, is alive to deliver what God says / has said concerning you and it is powerful thereby overcoming and prevailing over all oppositions. The word of God is also powerful to repair every damage the negative words of people or the enemy (devil) have done to your life.
Now, nullify every contrary word you have spoken or that has been spoken against your life with the blood of Jesus (Revelation 12:11) then keep speaking God’s word over your life and situations and you will begin to enjoy the manifestation of His word because it works.
So, rejoice knowing that the word of GOD is authentic and in it is your testimonies and future, other words are fake.
JESUS IS LORD.
