THE POWER OF POSITIVE SPEAKING

(GEN 1:26, 2:19. MATT 28:18-19)
GEN 2:19 – Then the Lord formed out of the ground all the beast of the field, and all the birds of the air and brought them to Adam, to see what he would call them, and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name.
When God created the heavens and the earth, he gave Adam the task to name the animals, and that which he named it, that it was. This means that we are pro-creators and God has given us the authority to name.
In Gen 1:26, God gave us authority and dominion over everything on earth, because we are created in his image and likeness, we have the authority of the father. This is to say that, if we walk in line with God, we are tuned to his will, we have the authority to name anything and so it shall be.
But man lost this authority when he sinned. The devil came and tampered with the authority man had. This authority was given to us again by God through Jesus Christ who came in the form of a men. By his death on the cross, Christ restored all that we had lost.
Gen 28: 18-19 says I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples from all nation….
Christ passed down this authority unto his disciples to continue from where he stopped before ascending to heaven. There were so many notable miracles by the early disciples when they speak in that authourity of Jesus Christ. This is to tell us that we cannot exercise this authority outside Christ. We are his present disciples and this authority should be exercised by us.
Now, what is that current situation, what have you named it? Your finance? What positive words have you spoken on it? Career and business? What authority have you exercised on it? Marriage/family? What have you named it? That sickness? What command have you given to it? This is a call to wake us up from our slumber, being created in the image and likeness of God, as a restored man in Christ, pick up that part of your life and name it, and it will be as you have said, just like Adam did. Speak positively, not negatively. Make it an everyday exercise.
