KEY SCRIPTURE: John 11:43 KJV” And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.”
During our Lord Jesus’ ministry, He demonstrated that one could speak to inanimate objects and situations to obey and they did. He spoke to raging storms to be at peace, He spoke to withered hands to be whole and they became well. He cursed to a fig tree, Mark 11:14 KJV” And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.” The Bible said the tree died from its roots. He then said to His disciples, “Whosoever, shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed and enter the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that, those things he says, shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he says.” Mk 11 :23.
Lazarus, was dead for four days, and could be described as an inanimate object yet the Lord knew that life is spiritual. The spiritual has power over the natural. In the case of Lazarus, the Lord called his spirit from the spirit realm. Please note that Lazarus had been dead for four days. Every organ was totally dead, and had started decaying. Calling Lazarus to come forth meant, his spirit, was to enter him, and regenerate all that was dead.
Where did the life which was to stir up his spirit to come into his body and regenerate him, come from? This life was in His words. The scripture says God has ordained power in your mouth. Ps 8:2.
Use your mouth against whatever comes against you. Do not think others are powerful, and you are not. Jesus is the same unto all. Rom 10:12.
What makes certain Christians less powerful than others? A man who has not learnt to keep his promises cannot have that resolute confidence in the words that proceed from his mouth. The one who gives his word to do a thing, but does the opposite, easily doubt himself. This is why many cannot see great things proceeding from what they say.
The other reason why some do not find their words making great impact, is that, they do not speak with a consciousness of the Lord’s presence, who has heard whatever they said, and would act accordingly.
Those who say idle words would not have power in what they say. Idle words are words that do not inspire, instruct, encourage or bless in any way. Matt 12:36. Be serious about every word that comes out of your mouth.
God my father has ordained strength in my mouth. I against every contrary to, condition, or problem, and I see the expected results. I do not give idle words, but I am very conscious about every word that proceed out of my mouth.
Psalms 8:2 KJV “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.”
Matt 12:36 KJV “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
