SPEAK THE WORD FAITHFULLY - PART 1

MONDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2023


The Word of God is reliable when you speak it faithfully, which means, in a manner that is true to the fact or original, or as it is written. However, God wants us to eat His Word and let it digest within us such that we become wise enough to understand it, explain it and speak it forth. That is the reason I'm introducing this topic, "Speak the Word faithfully."

Reference: Jeremiah 23:28 Amplified Bible (AMP) "The prophet who has a dream may tell his dream; but he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat [for nourishment]?" says the LORD.


If God wants us to always declare His Word in a way that adheres to fact, standard or original, then it means that we must know the Word in an accurate manner, or function with the adequate knowledge and understanding, before we can speak it truthfully.


Beloved, there is a great difference between any other truth, news, knowledge, data, facts, details and information, and the truth of God's Word. This is the reason the Lord Himself says, "What has straw in common with wheat for nourishment? In other words, when it comes to real spiritual nourishment, what has chaff (other sources of information) got to do with wheat (God's Word)? The Word of God is not any prophet's word or dream; it is God's own declaration and it has been in existence right from the beginning. To instantiate this, John 1:1 (NLT) let's us know that, "In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God."


As I mentioned earlier, the Word is not anyone's dream, vision, opinion or sayings, it is the eternal truth from the very mouth of God, which is a reliable source. Although the prophet who has a dream may tell his dream, it is not the same with he who has the Word. Morever, let he who has the Word, speak it faithfully. More so, we can only tell it earnestly and truthfully, when we have it in us, and depending on whether we've received it correctly with the right understanding, bearing in mind that we have a Father in heaven, who gave it to us. God is the Father of the Word, and I'll come to that in the successive parts of this topic. Additionally and significantly, there is liberty of access to the depth of God's truth, as we verbalise the Word faithfully, meaning that God is pleased with us and will grant us more of His knowledge.


In the verse next to our referenced Scripture, the Lord God says, "Does not my word burn like fire? Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?" Indeed, this implies that the Word is quick and powerful; it can never be compared to any other (See also Hebrews 4:12 KJV). Stay tuned for part 2. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Numbers 23:12; 1 Kings 22:14; Jeremiah 1:7, 9, 17; Isaiah 51:16.


Exuberant Declaration: For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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. Praise God!
