THE AWESOME POWER OF GOD'S WORD

The word of God, spoken in faith in the Name of Jesus, has awesome power to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Isaiah 55:10-11 ...[11] so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
  • There is irresistible power in God's word; it will not return to Him empty.
  • God's Word will accomplish His desires and purposes.
  • God's Word has heaven-backed power!
  • When you speak the Word of God, you are tapping into limitless power!
Jeremiah 23:28-29 Let the one who has my word speak it faithfully ... [29] "Is not my word like fire," declares the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?"
  • Think of God's Word as a hammer. Picture it.
  • This hammer can drive home a nail = positive results.
  • This hammer can break down obstacles = overcoming negatives.
  • "SPEAK [God's Word] faithfully" and (1) all kinds of positive things will begin to happen, and (2) all kinds of obstacles and opposition will begin to be broken.
  • Three times Jesus spoke to Satan: "It is WRITTEN!", and Satan's schemes were defeated. There is great power in the spoken word of God.
John 11:43-44a When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" [44] The dead man came out...

In Genesis - God said, "Let there be..." and light; sun, moon, and stars; animals, birds, and fish; and more came into being from God's spoken word.

Speak out God's Word to your "Lazarus":
  • "Devil, come out, because you are overcome by the blood of the Lamb."
  • "Cancer, leave this body, because by the wounds of Jesus this child of God was healed."
  • "Finances, come into line, because my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory."
John 8:51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.
  • Talk about incredible power in God's word!
  • Keep His Word, and you will "never see death."
  • Not just "know" His Word, but "KEEP" it.
  • That word says, "I will raise him up."
  • That word says, "Whosoever lives and believes in me will never die."
  • That word says we shall reign with Him forever.
John 8:31-32, KJV Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; [32] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

His Word will set you FREE!
  • "Drugs/alcohol, I don't need you, because the Son of God has set me free!"
  • That addictive behavior "You have no more control over me, because Jesus has set me free."
  • An uncontrollable habit? "I am more than a conqueror through Him that loved me."
John 17:17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
  • The Word of God in our hearts is a powerful antidote to sin.
  • Temptation comes through the eyes? "I made a covenant with my eyes."
  • Temptation to pride? "God exalts the humble."
  • Temptation to the flesh? "God will with the temptation make a way of escape."
  • Temptation to dishonesty? - Psalm 51:6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts.
Acts 10:44, 46 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.... [46] For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.
  • Speak God's Word to people to open for them new dimensions in the Holy Spirit.
  • Tell people what God's Word says about the mighty baptism with the Holy Spirit.
  • Tell people what the Word of God says about divine healings, prophecy, miracles...
  • Tell people from God's Word to pray for and expect the demonstration of the Holy Ghost and power.
Romans 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming.
  • That centurion in the bible understood this. He asked Jesus to speak that word of faith, and his servant would be healed.
  • Peter understood this. He spoke out: "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you" (condensing several healing Scriptures into five words!).
  • Paul understood the importance of the spoken Word of God: "Timothy, preach the Word!"
  • God's all-powerful Word "the word of faith" - "is in YOUR MOUTH" to be spoken.
  • SPEAK God's Word, and expect the infinite power of that Word to bring forth astounding results.
