What are, words? Websters Dictionary defines them as a speech sound or series of speech sounds that symbolizes and communicates a meaning. That’s a powerful thing but is that all they are? Do they only allow us to communicate?
A Different Side to Words
Consider for a moment whether or not there’s a whole different side to these little and sometimes big things we call words.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. (Genesis 1: 1-3)
From the get-go, in the Bible, God is using them, and power is connected to them. Everything is made by the word of God. He said, “let it be” and it was. In Isaiah God said, “Oh My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it. (Isaiah 55:11)
Yes! But Those Are God’s Words
Okay, here’s something really exciting. We were created to be like God!
It’s true. We were created in the image of God. So we are a lot like him! So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27) we were created to be like God. When the bible says in his own image it means in three parts.
God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are Spirit, Soul, and Body. We are like him in our nature and so it stands to reason we have some of the attributes of Our Father and maker.
What Does All This Have to Do With Words?
God Said, “let it be,” and it was. So if we are made in his own image it stands to reason that we are like him in all kinds of ways. As a matter of fact, one could even argue that what we are in general is a representation, (albeit a really rough one) of the Father.
We were originally created to be a lot more like him but at the fall sin entered us and since then the seed of it remains and keeps being passed along down the line.
You can Make Things Happen
Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. (Mark 11:23)
Here Jesus is telling us a little about who we are. I know some of you will say, “yeah but only if it’s God’s will is that going to work.” But I have to totally disagree with you.
This and countless other statements in the Word of God talk about the power of the tongue. It’s literally filled with scripture telling us about the power of our words and that we must take care, how we use them.
