“A dictionary for navigators on spiritual rough waters” chapter 25 – the power of words

Here we are, at the cross road of life. We each know the place from which we have come. We do not know where we are going. We each must choose now. Indeed, the more we read the words of God, the more we realize how little we know God. How can we ever know our Creator? How can the clay ever know the Potter?

Potter leaves mark on the product of his hands. God our Creator leaves mark in us. We are created in His image. Even though we have fallen (since Adam) and come short of His glory, there are marks of God in some of us which are still discernible, the compassion, goodness and mercy of God. But we want to know Him more and be more like Him.

Here we are, at His manual again.

today we look at the power of God’s words.

A most power word in the Bible is: I. When the word ‘I’ is spoken by God. We read Leviticus 26 ( I encourage you to read the whole chapter yourself. You can read the Bible online if you do not have a hard copy.)

2 “I am the Lord.”

“If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you the seasonal rains. 

“I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear.

“I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you. 10 You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest! 11 I will live among you, and I will not despise you.12 I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people.13 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high.” 

What an awesome God! He spoke all these on His own accord. He offered the best ever to His people. Because He is God, He means every word He speaks. They will all come to pass. His words had never failed. So the ‘I’ declared by God is really a most powerful word we have ever heard.God's power in us
