February 27, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – THE CREATIVE POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD – “LET THERE BE!” – Genesis 1:3, Matthew 8:26
The Word of God knows no defeat or failure. I want to share with you THREE of the most powerful words ever spoken! They were spoken by the most powerful Monarch in the universe – GOD ALMIGHTY. Every statement from the mouth of God exhales Almightiness and is filled with Almightiness, but these three words are absolutely tremendous. I do not think there are any words in the entire Bible more powerful than they.
Genesis 1:3, “And God said, LET THERE BE light and there was light.”
Look at those three words again! Wait some minutes and ponder their texture in your spirit. They convey no sense of weakness whatsoever. No sense of inability. They are creative, dominating, authoritative and ruling words.
God saw the chaos on the earth, it was void, the darkness, and the seeming hopelessness and He did not panic. He only spoke – “LET THERE BE.” He did not take counsel with the existing situation, nor did He call the devil to a council meeting to discuss what must be done, He just said, “LET THERE BE.” What it means is this – CREATE SPACE FOR WHAT I DESIRE! GIVE ROOM FOR WHAT IS MY DESIRE TO BE! It does not matter how powerful the opposing forces are – let there be room for my desire.
In Matthew 8:26, Jesus looked at the storm and said LET THERE BE PEACE and it was so! This is because they were creative words. Man was created in the image and likeness of God – to act and operate like Him. The statement of Jesus here to the disciples implied that He expected them by simple faith to do what He did – speak to the winds – and they would have seen the same results. You can speak to all situations or circumstances and have the same result. Get your mouth working and don’t understand or cope with the condition. The condition will respond to your words, not your complaints or desires.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for the power in the Word. I speak over my life – LET IT BE UNTO ME ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF THE LORD! Amen!
