Window On The Word
... by Tim
Speaking God’s Words
us can be victorious in everything we do when we follow the
lead of Jesus. Now I’m not talking about wearing a bracelet
that has WWJD on it. I’m actually talking about speaking the
way Jesus did, acting the way Jesus did and actually living
His life by every Word of God in whatever situation He found
Jesus was taken up into a mountain by the Holy
Spirit right after He was baptized. Forty days had now passed
and Jesus fasted the whole time. Now I would say that at this
point in His life that Jesus was at His weakest He ever had
been – in the natural. But in the spirit, He was at His
strongest. He had just spent forty days in direct
communication with the Father, getting direction through the
Holy Spirit. He was ready for anything!
This is when the devil tried to ‘take Him out’
you might say. Satan came at Jesus with words. Strong words!
Words that would try to hurt His pride, words that would
offend, words that would get Him to react. Satan said to Jesus
in Matthew 4:4 – "IF you are the Son of God, tell these
stones to become bread." You see, I don’t think Satan really
knew that Jesus WAS the Son of God. He wanted to be
In the natural, Jesus was hungry, but He
responded to the devil not through His emotions, in the
natural, but through His spirit. He
spoke the Word of God over the situation. He said "It is
written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word
that comes out from the mouth of God."
You may be going through a difficult time in
your life. The devil may be using every weapon he has and
throwing it right at you. You may be feeling worn down and
physically & emotionally weak. But you don’t have to
stay that way.
Proverbs 4:20-22 – My Child (put your name in
here) attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of
thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and
health to all their flesh.
We have the best resource there ever was – the
Bible – the very Word of God! His Word works against any
situation that comes our way every time!
God’s Word is living and
active. Once we grab hold of His Word,
His Truth, then we can turn any situation around, no matter
how destructive it seems to be at the moment.
God says that He watches over His Word to
perform it. That means that He is waiting to hear you and me
speak forth His words to Him so He can then act on what He
said He would do. Once we speak God’s Word – it is
activated and it will come to pass in our lives.
Whatever situation we find ourselves in, we
must know, that we are not at a standstill, we are not at a
dead end. I Cor. 10:4 tells us that our godly weapons are
mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. Nothing the devil
can throw against us will be able to take us down or out – IF
we respond with the Word of God in faith.
We don’t have to be ‘held down’ in any area of
our life any longer. The moment we grab hold of God’s Word and
begin to speak it forth – it begins working in our lives to
destroy any stronghold, any darkness, any depression, any
habit, any sin, any sickness, any destruction that has tried
to attach itself to us.
Mark 11:23 Commands us to speak to our
mountain and tell it to depart from us. Many Christians have
never heard of speaking to the mountain (any problem) before.
Actually it really sounds kind of ‘nutty’ or strange to our
natural minds. But our ways are not God’s ways. There is
true power in the words we speak, either positively or
The first time we heard this scripture, we
just began doing it, even though we didn’t fully
understand what it meant at the time. We spoke to Tim’s heart
and told the angina and heart problem to leave him in Jesus
name. And you know we learned that ‘God’s Word’ really does
I want to encourage you right now, if you have
any mountains in your life that you need removed, speak to
them just like Jesus spoke the Word to the devil and
throughout all His life on earth and you will have a
Victorious Life. For there truly is power in our spoken
