June 11 Speak God’s Words

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:11

Not Yours God’s plan for your life is even bigger than your plan. However, to enter into His plan, you must believe in and affirm it by what you say. Jesus’ life was successful because He didn’t speak His own words; He spoke God’s words.

For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say. The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.…He who does not love me will not

obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. This is the secret to living a victorious life of faith. It was a major key to Jesus’ power on earth. Jesus Christ didn’t invent words to say. He was always praying to God what God had said first. Why? Again, it is because God watches over His Word to fulfill it. Jesus’ works were the Father’s works because His words were the Father’s words. His miracles were the Father’s miracles because His words were the Father’s words. He knew who He was, what He believed, and what to say, and that combination brought Him victory on earth. The same can be true for us if we follow His example!

Prayer: Father, teach me how to speak and pray Your Word, so that my words are Your words, and my works are Your works. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Thought: Speaking the Father’s words was the primary secret of Jesus’ power.
