I heard The LORD say, “As you speak, I AM establishing.”
A lot of people live in the wish zone. They want reality, but they keep dwelling in the figment of their own imaginations. There is no reality without The Word. Jesus is The Word. Jesus is… Reality!
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men,” John 1:1-4.
The Word is God, outside The Word, there is no god. The Word brings reality, outside The Word there is no reality. In The Word is life, outside The Word, there is no life.
“I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith The LORD, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty,“ Revelation 1:8.
This is one of my favorite verses in scripture. It says He is the beginning and the end. It doesn’t say He is the beginning of time and the end of time as many think. This is a blank cheque.
Then it goes on to say He is, He Was and is to come — making Him the ultimate reality. He is my past, my present and if I want a future he is the only future. This is the life of the believer.
This is why most people who are empty of The Word run in circles with zero satisfaction. The Word of God is not an option for the believer, it is the only life we have. What works for the unbeliever will not work for the believer.
For example, before the Israelites came out of Egypt to possess Canaan, the land was already prosperous. The people were already prospering there!
God himself said the land was flowing with milk and honey — which the spies went and verified for themselves.
These people did not know God, yet they were prosperous. They were not following God’s Word, yet their land was blessed. But look at God’s Word to His Own People as they were about to enter and possess the land,
“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it,” Deuteronomy 32:46-47.
The world may prosper and live long life through a lot of things, but to the believer, only by The Word are we promised life. This is why some Christians envy unbelievers’ prosperity, when they have neglected God’s life, which is, The Word.
We do not have a portion in earthly things, but our life is The Word. Neglecting The Word, is neglecting life. Esteeming The Word lightly, is dangerous.
When you value The Word, you value your life, and when you don’t value The Word, you have no value for your life, for The Eord is your own very life. We are dead, and our life is now The Word.
“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory,” Colossians 3:1-4.
In an encounter with The LORD, I saw His Fire on the hearts of people and I saw massive response to God’s Word as Christians were proclaiming The Word.
Coming out, I was led by The Spirit to;
“And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” Luke 24:32.
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways,” Job 22:28.
Then The LORD said, “From the place of meditation you are rising with My Word, the very fire in your bones to ignite the hearts of men.
I have made My Word in your mouth a divine decree. As you speak, I AM establishing. I AM opening the hearts of nations to hear My Word through your mouth!
As My Word never returns to Me void, so even now what you speak will not return void, but I AM accomplishing.
Decree! Declare! Proclaim without fear! For you are receiving an overflowing harvest.”
