Invitations: Speak

A morning walk
A dried up stalk
Initiated a powerful talk.

Peter was fraught
Jesus taught
About the power of faith, words, and thought.

Our words can move mountains.
What we speak can create fountains
Of blessings when we are not doubting.

Say what inspires
Believing we acquire
Whatsoever our hearts desire

When we have faith in God.

Years ago I read a book by Charles Capps (God’s Creative Power, 2004). In the book he issues a challenge. He says,

“If Jesus came to you personally and said, from this day forward it will come to pass, that everything you say will happen exactly as you say it; would that change your vocabulary?”

Jesus teaches us in Mark 11 verses 22 and 23 that we can have what we say if we have faith in God. The words we speak reflect what we believe and they have power.

What are we saying about God?

What are we saying about our spouse–our marriage?

What are we saying about our children?

What are we saying about ourselves?
