There’s power in your words! “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit – you choose.” Proverbs 18:21.
God created the world and everything in it by His words and it still stands today. When a king gives a decree, it is carried out as he decreed it. We’re made in God’s image and He’s given us His Name and authority to rule and reign in our domain by the power of our words. We’re heirs and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. That in itself should give you revelation that you were created for victory!
Since Jesus is the King of kings and we are joint heirs with him; we’re created to rule and reign in our domain and speak forth decrees, just as a king would do to fulfill what he wants accomplished in his kingdom.
My three favorite Bible versions are The Message Bible, The Amplified Bible, and the New American Standard Bible. It’s good to read and study different Bible translations to get a better understanding of God’s word. Therefore, I want to share Job 22:28 in those three versions.
“You’ll take delight in God, the Mighty One, and look to him joyfully, boldly. You’ll pray to him and he’ll listen; he’ll help you do what you’ve promised. You’ll decide what you want and it will happen; your life will be bathed in light. To those who feel low you’ll say, ‘Chin up! Be brave! And God will save them. Yes, even the guilty will escape, escape through God’s grace in your life.”
“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”
“You will also decree a thing and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.”
I believe this is a life-time nugget to personalize for yourself; to meditate on; to ponder and let it explode into revelation knowledge!
As you decide what you want your life to look like, start decreeing it as the king you are! Just as God spoke the world into existence, you can use your words to speak and decree your world into existence according to Job 22:28. Open your mouth. Fill it with good words. Decree your victorious future and watch it manifest before your eyes!
