Allowing God to Speak Through You

“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.” 1 Peter 4:11

The words we speak have power. And when we speak words with conviction we are creating as God creates in that very moment. With every word spoken we are either affirming or defeating, building up or tearing down, edifying or destroying. There are no neutral words.

Genesis shows the power of the word as God set out to manifest all of creation:

  • And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. (1:3)
  • And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. (1:9)
  • Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. (1:11)
  • And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. (1:14-15)
  • And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. (1:24)
  • Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the earth.” (1:26)

Then GOD SAID … and it was so!

And then, “God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.” (1:31) God spoke, God created, God saw that it was GOOD. The Creator did not just proclaim it was good after the fact but rather acknowledged the goodness of what God spoke into existence.

The lesson? When God speaks, what manifests is always good, loving, affirming, true … divine. And we have the choice in every moment to allow God to speak through us and to use us to create and manifest God’s love here on earth.

Regardless of our circumstance, our mood, or our life story we always have the choice and the power to speak love and peace into our own lives and the lives of others.

What will you choose today?

Choose to affirm yourself. Right now. Call on the power of Spirit to SPEAK love into your current situation and circumstances. Then as you move throughout the day, allow Spirit to SPEAK love into the life of everyone you meet. Even if you do not utter audible words, allow the God in you to acknowledge and edify others. Allow God to speak through you and it will be good.
