For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (Mark 11:23).
When Jesus calmed the turbulent waves, the Bible tells us that his disciples "...feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?" (Mark 4:41). How could the sea hear Jesus and obey His words? The obvious answer, of course, must be that the wind and water have the intelligence to respond to God's Word.
In Mark 11:14, Jesus addressed a fig tree. Also in the twenty-third verse, He showed us that we could speak to a mountain, letting us know that everything in life--animate or inanimate--has intelligence. When you talk to them, they'll hear you. On the mount of transfiguration, the Bible tells us that a voice spoke from heaven concerning Jesus, saying "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him" (Matthew 17:5).
Now, the words "...hear ye him" wasn't just referring to humans alone but all of nature. No wonder Jesus spoke to deaf ears, blind eyes, maimed limbs, corpses, the wind, the waves, fishes, a tree--and they all heard Him. Then in Mark 11:23, He said you shall have what you say. This means you also have the ability to speak to anything. He has vested in you the authority to speak words of life--to anything--for they are all intelligent enough to hear and respond to your words.
Instead of complaining about life, your finances or a health condition, speak God's Word of blessing. Speak words of life. Those words will go into the realm of the spirit and produce the change you want to see. You can speak life to your body, your job, your family, your finances and even your future! Your words carry power. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says "Where the word of a king is, there is power..." You're a king (Revelations 1:6); therefore whatever you want changes, talk to it, and it'll respond.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the ability to speak words of life--words that carry the power to alter my condition and destiny for good. I speak life to everything that concerns me today, and I declare that I'm moving from glory to glory, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
