Topic: The Creative Word Of God

MEMORISE: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. – Genesis 1:1

READ: John 1:1-3 (KJV)

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.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 7-8

MESSAGE:

There is power in the word of God. The word of God has creative power. The power in the word of God created space where there seemed to be none, according to our Bible reading for today.

The word of God will always make a way where there is no way and a space where there is no space. When the Israelites got to the Red Sea and it seemed that they were shut between it and the hosts of Pharaoh, the Lord spoke through Moses that they should move on. It takes faith in God to obey such a command, but thank God they did and their obedience paid off because the word made an expressway in the sea for them to pass through. Exodus 14:15-16 says:

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”

Another lesson we should learn here is that we should always talk of God about our challenge. Moses did this effectively and every time he did, God spoke. This made Moses a problem-solver because he always heard from God. Also, when God speaks, it is done. All that is required for the ultimate manifestation is for us to take the necessary action in obedience to His word. My life is a testimony of the power in the word of God. The word of God has increased my faith in the past and is still doing so. It was the word which came to me during a family devotion that strengthened me when we were trusting God for our first natural birth. Indeed, it came through one of the children as we were considering the miracle of the parting of the Red Sea when the power of God made a way where there was none. The Bible says in Exodus 14:16:

“But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it…”

It was Moses who divided the sea under the influence of God’s word. The word had established it ahead:

“…and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”

The children of God moved forward in faith and it came to pass. We must be both hearers and doers of the word (James 1:22,25). My prayer for you is that, as you obey the word of God, you will begin to do the impossible, in Jesus’ name.

ACTION POINT:

Examine your life and see if there are ways in which you have not been heeding God’s word. Repent so that you may begin to live in the supernatural from now.

HYMN 1: All Hail The Power Of Jesus Name

1. All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!

2. Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!

3. Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!

4. Oh, that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!
