That you may boldly say
Text: Hebrews 13:5-6; Proverbs 12:13-14
Key Verse: Hebrews 13:6 “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” (KJV).
God is a Spirit. God begins from the spiritual before it manifests in the physical. God starts from invisible to visible. He speaks to us spiritually, but we bring what God tells us physically through our spoken words. Words constructs destiny.
Speaking the Word of God in your mouth is saying what God says. When you speak the Word of God in your mouth, it is like God speaking His Word by Himself. For God Has said it, so that you may boldly say. God Has said that Healing is the Children’s Bread so that you will boldly say, ‘I am healed.’ God Has blessed you, so that you will boldly say, ‘I am blessed.’
You don’t need to be covetous about someone else’s blessing and promotion, if you believe God shall promote you. You don’t need to steal another man’s money, why? For God Has spoken. What did God say? He said, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5). So why Has God spoken? So that you can speak His Word in your mouth and it shall come to pass. For God Has said it, so that you will boldly say.
When you read your Bible and you see God saying something, it is an open cheque to say that which God Has spoken over your life or any situation. Anytime God speaks to you, it is an opportunity to speak something.
Saying what God says is the key to drawing the things that God Has given you in the spiritual into manifestation in the physical. When God speaks a word to you, He works on you until He fulfils His word on you.
A promise by God to someone in the Bible is also a promise by God to you. God spoke to Jacob first, but David declared what God said to Jacob as God speaking to him. In Genesis 28:15, God spoke to Jacob, when he felt abandoned, left alone and that everything was against him. God said to him, “…, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.” In Psalm 27:9b, David declared, “thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.”
When God changed a person’s name and gave him a new name, it was usually to establish a new identity. God changed Abram’s “high father” name to “Abraham,” “father of many nations” (Genesis 17:5). Abraham called himself Abraham, even when he has no child. Abraham’s reality says he has no child, but Abraham continued to put the Word of God in his mouth – father of many nations.
Call yourself what God Has called you. It may seem ridiculous to call yourself what God Has called you. If you want to see the supernatural power of God, you must say what God says to you not minding the contradicting realities. The Word of God in your mouth carries the same power as if God Has spoken it.
Proverbs 12:13a, says, “The wicked is ensnared by the transgression of his lips.” To be “ensnared” is to be trapped. How do you fall into the trap? By the transgression of your lips (words).
“Transgression” means to go astray. The Word of God establishes the path of your lips. When you say something else outside of the Word of God, your lips had transgressed and when you transgress, you are trapped. If you say, “Life is hard,” you have transgressed and set a trap for yourself and the devil.
When God establishes a path (His spoken word), your duty is continue to boldly say what God Has said. Proverbs 12: 14a, says, “A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth.” What is the fruit of mouth? Words. Your words can either trap or satisfy you.
Stay in God’s Word spoken concerning you. Discipline yourself to stay in God’s Word, even if it seems hardest.Today’s Nugget: Saying what God says is the key to drawing the supernatural to the natural.
