In Christ, we no longer have any sense of alienation from God because we have been accepted in the beloved. The Bible says in Ephesians 1:5-7: "having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (NKJV). For this reason, by the virtue of new birth, we have a fathomable sense of responsibility, to speak words of faith in accordance with the truth which God has revealed.

Reference: Isaiah 59:21 New International Version (NIV) '"As for me, this is my covenant with them," says the Lord. "My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants - from this time on and forever," says the Lord.'

This Scripture was addressed to Zion or spiritual Israel, which we are part of, in Christ. God has given us His Spirit which is in His Beloved Son, Christ and because we are in Him, it's a position in which the revealed truth is to be spoken through our mouth consistently because God has placed it there for our successful Christian living and divine experience. God's spirit will never depart from us, because it's a fulfilled promise made to us and our descendants forever. Remember, Jesus said in John 14:16: "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, so that He may be with you forever" (NASB). So the Spirit and the Word walk side by side and they are given to all of God's children to profit from - forever.

God's Word on our lips is not for religious debate. Don't let yourselves get taken in by religious smooth talk because God is not interested in such engagement, although there are Christians who are full of religious sales talk. That's not what His Word is all about. Hebrews 4:12 reads, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (KJV).

The Scripture noted that Word is quick and powerful, which suggests being active, fruitful, potent and effective. And that was God's purpose for putting the Word in our mouth. Therefore, we are to create, restore and make things good with the Word because it has great power, influence and effect. Genesis 1:2-4 reads, 'The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness' (NKJV). Notice that when God spoke, there was a change; light emerged and it was good. Same way, as a result of the new birth, the Spirit of God imparts life in our speech, and as we speak or declare God's Word concerning ourselves, our situation or well-being, we are bound to experience a good and lasting change.

1 Peter 4:11 reads, "If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen (NKJV). "Beloved, when we declare the Word of God, we actually speak that which God inspires us to speak. Then watch this: As it goes forth from our lips, the ability of God is demonstrated through us for this reason- so that in everything God may be glorified through Christ. For instance, if you are experiencing a troubling issue or situation, and you want to restore order, you can declare the peace of God in the atmosphere and things will return to normalcy, which in turn, brings glory to God. Even after you've declared the Word and it seems like nothing has changed immediately, no matter how you feel, remain standing on the Word and maintain your declaration because the Word does not fail. It will surely accomplish or establish that which you've spoken. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - Isaiah 51:16; Jeremiah 1:9; Matthew 10:20; John 12:49.

Exuberant declaration: God's Word on my lips is efficacious in every aspect of life. I do not speak on my own initiative; rather the words that I speak are greatly inspired by the Spirit of God in me and they have beneficial effects in my life in every way. Hallelujah!
