That’s a Good Word

Any word God speaks is a word from his kingdom.  Words spoken from his kingdom are not simple suggestions but are powerful declarations.  Think about this, when God spoke the world into existence there wasn’t any resistance.  God commanded light to come onto the scene and it burst forth instantaneously.  He spoke a word from his kingdom and it impacted the universe in exactly how he intended.  So when this same God speaks a word for our lives we need to receive that as a seed placed in good soil and steward it until it grows into what he declared.  Jesus gives us an amazing insight in Matthew 13 where he discusses the different ways a seed can be received.

That spoken word is like a seed spread into a field.  Growth of that seed can be stunted by not understanding the word, failing to care for it because of persecution, or choking it off by worrying about if it will come to pass.  The only way it will grow into what God destined it to be is if your heart is willing to receive it.  When God speaks to you, don’t think about whether or not it is a true word or whether or not it will come to pass.  Receive it, embrace it, get it deep into your spirit, and wait for it to flourish.  His word never returns void, it accomplishes exactly what he sent it to do (Isaiah 55:11).
