(Dominate Your World By Speaking Faith-Filled Words)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
The Lord Jesus, while He walked this earth, lived such an exemplary life of faith. His confidence and apparent mastery over life’s circumstances are awe-inspiring. He amazed everyone with His extraordinary life of dominion.
On a certain occasion, His disciples couldn’t help but ask out loud, in utter amazement: “…Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” (Luke 8:25).
Luke 8:23-24 records for us the occasion that prompted this question from the disciples: “But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy.And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm.” Observe closely what the Master did: He rebuked the wind and the raging waves; that means He spoke words. He actually said, “…Peace, be still” (Mark 4:39), and there was a great calm.
This gives us an insight into how He prevailed over circumstances. He ruled negative circumstances with faith-filled words. He spoke words, and blind eyes opened up, maimed limbs were restored, and deaf ears were unstopped.
He spoke and Lazarus, who was already dead and buried for four days, came back to life. He did all these to show that we can do the same; for as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). So rise, rule, and frame your world with faith-filled words, and watch your life move from one degree of glory to another.
Go Deeper: 1 John 4:4; 1 John 5:4
Speak: I know who I am. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! The world is mine, because I’m a joint-heir with Christ. Greater is He that’s in me, than he that’s in the world. I live the life of excellence, victory, and dominion over Satan; I reign triumphantly in all circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
