Your life is framed by the words you speak. When you speak words that oppose the Word of God, you turn on the law of sin and death. When you speak words that agree with the Word of God, you
turn on the law of life in Christ Jesus In many places in the Bible,
words and things are used interchangeably. Words don't produce things,
they are things. God's laws are always strong, but if your faith is weak
they can not operate in your life. You must have confidence in God's
words and the words that you speak.

  1. There are two systems operating in the world that are governed by laws (Romans 8:1-2).
    1. The world system is governed by the laws of sin and death, and the Kingdom of God system is governed by the law of life in Christ Jesus.
      1. The world uses words of fear, but in the Kingdom of God system, faith-filled words must be used.
      2. The laws in the Kingdom of God system are greater than the laws in the world system.
      3. All spiritual laws are activated by words.

  2. The Word works in Hebrew is translated as dabar, which means things or words (Psalm 145:5, I Samuel 3:15-18, I Samuel 16:18).
    1. Words are things and they have substance.
      1. Things are heard before they are seen.
      2. Just because something is not seen does not mean it does not exist.

  3. God does not bless us according to what we think we deserve but based upon His spiritual laws.
    1. You must become knowledgeable of God's laws; and appropriate them in your life.
    2. God's laws always work.
      1. As Christians, we are partakers of these laws. And there are some spiritual laws that will also work for non-Christians.
      2. Spiritual laws will also work in the negative. For example, if you speak negative words about yourself, that law is working for you until you replace
        them with positive words and do not change your stance.
      3. You must call things not as they are, but how you want them to be.
    3. Satan is after your words.
    4. Satan knows how the laws work. He wants you to name and claim your trouble so you can speak his fear-filled words, which will determine the outcome
      of your life.
    5. Had Jesus spoken words in His own defense during His trial, He would have stopped the plan of redemption.

  4. A double-minded man is unstable in his ways (James 1:8).
    1. A person who is double-minded speaks words that oppose what he or she has said previously.
      1. If you say "I have a sound mind" you will cancel it out by saying "I'm going crazy." You won't ever get results because you are going in
      2. Once you say something, it is released spiritually and will keep working until you reverse it by declaring something else that opposes it.
    2. Faith has to be your foundation. God's laws are always strong, but our faith may not be as strong.
      1. In chemistry, if you have a strong acid, and you want to get a reaction but your base is weak, the chemical reaction will be delayed. But if you
        have a strong base and acid, when you mix the two, you will get a quick
      2. Think of the acid as God's spiritual laws, and the base as your faith. God's laws are always strong, but if your faith is weak it will take longer for them
        to produce results in your life.
    3. Faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). It is also your practical expression of the confidence
      you have in God and His Word.
      1. We must have confidence in what we say, and only speak what we want and not what we don't want.
      2. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and your life will be satisfied by the fruit of your mouth (Proverbs 18:20-21).
