Speak, Speak, and Speak... the Word of God in your Situation

John 1:1-3
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2. The same was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Christians have been given power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt them. Just as God spoke and the heavens and the earth came into being, we should also speak to every situation in our lives.

Speaking empowers the Spirit to act on our behalf and until we speak the Spirit is inactive waiting for the Word from our mouths. So long as we speak the Word of God in our situations; the Spirit is always ready to perform it.

The Word of God was with God in the beginning. The Word was God and so God cannot be separated from the Word. All things were made by the Word and when God made all things, He saw them as good and beautiful. What is not good and beautiful in your life need to be rectified by speaking the Word of God upon it. Just like God spoke to a formless, void and dark earth and it became good and beautiful; we should also prophesy to our formless, void and dark lives today.

Having allowed Jesus as King in our lives, means that we have actually allowed the Word in us. So, let our mouths speak the Word because the Word is empowered by Jesus Himself. When the Word gets firmly rooted in our hearts, it grows until it starts producing fruit and that fruit is the one we usually speak (Proverbs 18:20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. 21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof). Do you desire satisfaction? Increasingly feed on the Word, let it sink deep, soak yourself in the Word, meditate on it, let it grow in you, then when it starts producing fruit, speak it and you shall definitely be satisfied. Remember that this has to be a daily discipline if you want to be fully satisfied.

Joshua 1:8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Procedure of pumping the Word in your spirit
1. Read the Word daily in order to have know the Word
2. Study the Word daily in order to gain deep knowledge and understanding of the Word.
3. Meditate on the Word daily to attain wisdom of how you will apply the knowledge you gained after reading and studying the Word
4. Speak the Word daily to get results of good success and prosperity. Remember that you cannot speak the Word if you do not have knowledge of what it says. In order to speak the Word, you must read, study and meditate on it. Speaking the Word of God will change even the most hopeless situations. When God spoke in the beginning, everything was good and beautiful. Whatever is not like it was in the beginning is acting against the Word of God and need to be rectified by the Word of God spoken by a Spirit filled (Jesus filled or Word filled ) Christian like you.
5. Do the Word Daily. Faith is seeing beyond your circumstances. Circumstances change, but he Word of God does not. Faith comes by hearing God’s Word and the more of it you hear; the more your faith grows. However, it is not enough just to hear God’s Word. You must practice it. Faith is increased when you exercise it. Don’t just speak it... Do it! Learn how to work your faith. Read Romans 10:17 and James 2:26.

Prayer is also an integral part of any successful Christian. I urge you to take a pen and paper and write down the 5 steps listed above with an intention of carrying them out and applying them in your life daily and consistently. Form a habit of being a success.
