Reigning Through Words – Pastor Chris
Sunday, September 17, 2017
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).
Something important that you must do today is to meditate on our opening verse until it becomes a part of your system. The Amplified Classic Version renders the latter part rather beautifully. It says those who have received this gift of righteousness shall reign as kings in life. That’s talking about reigning in the earth; a kingly life on earth.
Revelation 5:10 says, “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Let’s examine one striking quality of a king in Ecclesiastes 8:4. It says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power….” Kings reign with words. You’re a king; therefore, reign with words. When you command fear to go, it goes! If you’re attacked by any kind of sickness, and you call it by name and command it to go, it’s got to quit! Everything in life has intelligence; they’re intelligent enough to recognize when the king gives the word, and that king is YOU!
Can you see why you ought to speak right and never paralyze your own faith? When you feel symptoms of sickness or disease in your body, don’t succumb! Just say the word and effect a change! Every word you say goes out in the spirit-realm to cause changes.
Jesus said in John 6:63, “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life,” and you’re like Him (1 John 4:17). Refuse to speak empty, idle, inoperative, nonworking words. Ordinary men may talk anyhow, but not you! You’re a spiritual man; your words have creative power.
Take your place of dominion, and reign in the Name of Jesus over circumstances, through words. Command every storm to be still in the Name of Jesus. Refuse the down life. Reign and rule in life as the king that you are, through words.
Dear Father, I thank you for the gift of righteousness that gives me boldness in your presence, and causes me to reign in life as a king. I speak the right words only, thereby effecting changes in my family, health, business and ministry. I walk in righteousness, and produce works of righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
