Creative Thoughts and Words
How does faith for your vision work? Let’s look more closely at how God functions. In Jeremiah 1:12, God declares, “I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”As this verse-along with many others throughout the Bible-demonstrates, God always brings His Words into being. We talked about this truth earlier. What did God use to create the universe? He used words. All through the account of creation, we read, “God said” (Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26).
God had an idea for the universe and then He saw or visualized it. Finally, He spoke His idea into existence. The result was that everything God saw in His mind’s eye for the earth and the rest of the universe became visible reality in the physical world. Nothing on earth is more important than thought. Thoughts are even more important than words because words are produced from thoughts. Yet while thoughts are the most important things on earth, words are the most powerful.
This point is crucial to understand because, while thoughts design a future, words create that future. You can think about something for twenty years, but that will not bring it to pass. Creative power is in the words and actions that come from thoughts. Whether those words are spoken or written, they are full of creative power. Note: While thoughts design a future, words create that future.
Let’s pray: Father, the Bibles tell me that You will perform Your Word. I trust You to perform Your Word in my life as I read and apply it. You indeed have a plan for me that will give me a future and a hope. Thank you for making my vision a reality. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
