” 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
“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord , and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God , thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord . Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:..” Ezekiel 37 :1-5 .
“And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 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. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.”
Noticed anything in the above bible verses? Maybe theres something else you noticed .
But i have something i want to bring out here.
All the situations seen were what i will call impossible situations,but something turned these situations around; the WORD of GOD.
I can not over emphasize the power in the word of God .It changes everything. In the beginning,the earth was without form and void but what was at the beginning ?
Words were the tools God used to create all things. If i decide today to make a nice dish,i wouldnt go into the kitchen and snap my fingers hoping the dish in my head will appear right before me .I would use certain ingredients to make my meal.
But we see God who created something out of nothing.By his words mixed with faith he framed the worlds.Isn’t this amazing?. The earth without form and with darkness around it , had light by the word of God.
Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones saw a situation that looked humanly impossible ,when God asked him if the bones could have life.He said “Lord thou knowest” but God told him to prophesy to the bones.
God was like “let out the word of God Ezekiel! “. 😁😁
You sure know what happened to the bones.They came back to life!
Simon was told to launch out into the deep and let down his net for a catch,having toiled all night without having anything he obeyed the “word” of the Lord.
What am i driving at? The power in Gods word.The power to create,the power to give life ,the power to do the impossible. People of God we have a tool in our hands. Its time to put Gods word in our hearts and mouth .Begin to pray for God to constantly fix your eyes on his power and not the present situations you may find yourself . The conditions do not have to be favourable and so encouraging before you act on the word of God. If God has spoken ,we can say like Peter “Nevertheless,i will let down my net”
In the face of temptations or attack ,the word of God is the weapon that we can use to win that great battle.Most of the time we tend to forget this fact and when fears,problems and sickness set in we begin to fret.
Today,i encourage you to rest in Gods word.His word is power. He exalts his word more than his name. Tap into the power in Gods word today.Keep speaking it and let this words be in your heart and mouth so that you can be able to apply it at every point in your life.
