During His early ministry, the Lord Jesus displayed absolute mastery over the circumstances of life, including the forces of nature. On a particular occasion, He was hungry and walked to a fig tree, hoping to find some fruit to eat. But the tree was fruitless, as it was not yet the season for figs. The Bible records that Jesus spoke to the fig tree and said, “…no man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And His disciples heard it." (Mark 11:14).
The Master talked to a tree; He spoke out so loud, and His disciples’ heard Him!
The next day, Peter, recalling what had happened the previous day, called the Master’s attention to the fig tree, saying, “Master, behold the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away” (Mark 11:21).
From His response, Jesus made us understand that we can talk to anything- we can influence anything, and effect any changes with our words: “for verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:23)
Here Jesus wasn’t talking figuratively as many people assume. Remember that in the previous verse, He had talked to a tree! He was showing us the power and efficacy of our words, and He proved it on numerous occasions. Jesus spoke to the winds and the waves, to fish in the water, to dead bodies, etc, and they all heard and obeyed Him. You too have been infused with the same ability to effect changes with the word of God in your mouth, for “as He is, (Jesus), so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). Your faith filled words determine the quality of life that you live!
It doesn’t matter the situation or circumstance in which you have found yourself, you can begin to effect changes with your faith filled words today!
DECREE AND DECLARE:
In the name of Jesus, I decree and declare change to the circumstances of my life!
I speak to my body, my family, my business and everything around me to align to the word of God spoken out of my mouth in Jesus name.
I call favor, strength and blessings to locate me today in Jesus name.
