TOPIC: The Lord Heard Their Words (Anglican Devotional 6 May 2021)
READ: Deuteronomy 1:34-35 (NKJV)
- ” And the LORD heard the sound of your words, and was angry, and took an oath, saying,
- ‘Surely not one of these men of this evil generation shall see that good land of which I swore to give to your fathers,
Many years ago, I fell sick, fasted, prayed, visited many doctors without positive results and I lost hope. One night, my spirit left my body which was shouting on the bed, “no Jesus, I won’t die, I must finish my ministry!” I heard a voice that commanded me thrice to repeat what my body was saying. I obeyed and my spirit entered my body. I believed, confessed and acted out healing scriptures over few months and gradually recovered. That experience taught me about the power of words.
God heard the unbelieving words and complaints of the Israelites in spite of His promises and miracles. He ensured that they died in the wilderness. Beloved, which word does God hear from your mouth? Death and life are in the power of your tongue (Proverbs 18:21). The tongue sets the wheel of birth on fire (James 3: 6). A single gossip can break relationships, destroy Churches and communities. On the positive side, the tongue was used to give you, your Church , family, nation its name. God does what He hears us say (Numbers 14:28). Focus on God’s promises and confess appropriate scriptures over your challenges. Change your words to God’s words. God’s words which break the rocks of stubborn resistance will settle both your case and its cause in Jesus name.
PRAYER: Father I believe and confess Your word of victory over any challenges in life in Jesus Name. Amen.
