When God’s word determines the seasons of your life, your words will influence situations. Amen! Elijah declared
1 Kings 17:1 (NKJV)
“...there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”
A desire to influence situations with our words can be fulfilled when we allow God’s word to determine the seasons of our lives. We are looking at a case in point, the prophet Elijah. We should not overlook the fact that 1 Kings 17 is the very first chapter in the bible where Elijah is first mentioned. We are introduced to him communicating to Ahab and declaring what the land should expect – a drought. And so it was.
Sometimes we yearn for our voices to be relevant voices in our generation and in this dispensation. I believe one of the ways that such desires can be fulfilled is when we allow scriptures to guide us. If we do, the impact will be beyond what we expected.
Desire to be in a place in your life whereby you only speak what the Father tells you to say (John 12:49 NIV). This was a great example modeled by Jesus Himself.
One of the ways that we can make these truths our reality, is by living a purpose driven life. A godly life; a life dependent on the leadership of the Holy Spirit. By so doing, your presence in every situation will leave a lasting positive impact.
By this we mean, the words you speak will influence the situation and the people. Amen!
