Title: “Kingdom Run by Words

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) – “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Message:

In the Kingdom of God, words are not just mere utterances; they are powerful agents of transformation and creation. As believers, we have been entrusted with the incredible responsibility of stewarding our words wisely, recognizing their profound impact on our lives and the world around us. In this powerful devotional, titled “Kingdom Run by Words,” let’s explore the significance of our speech in advancing God’s Kingdom and fulfilling His purposes.

Reflection:

Reflect on the profound truth of Proverbs 18:21, which reminds us of the power inherent in our words. Our tongue has the ability to speak life and death, blessing and cursing, healing and harm. Every word we speak carries weight and significance, shaping our reality and influencing the lives of those around us. As stewards of God’s Word, it’s crucial that we use our speech to align with His truth and advance His Kingdom purposes.

In the beginning, God spoke the world into existence through His Word (Genesis 1:3). Similarly, as His children, we have been given the authority to speak life into every situation we encounter. Our words have creative power, and when spoken in alignment with God’s will, they have the ability to bring about transformation and restoration. Let us be intentional about speaking words of faith, hope, love, and encouragement, releasing the life-giving power of God into every circumstance.

Throughout Scripture, we see the importance of declaring God’s promises over our lives and circumstances. Just as Joshua and Caleb proclaimed the Lord’s faithfulness in the face of giants (Numbers 14:6-9), we are called to boldly declare God’s truth and stand firm on His promises. When we speak God’s Word in faith, we activate His power to bring about His purposes and fulfill His plans in our lives.

While our words have the power to build up and edify, they also have the potential to tear down and destroy. Therefore, it’s essential that we guard our speech and use it to glorify God and edify others. Let us refrain from gossip, slander, and negative talk, choosing instead to speak words of kindness, encouragement, and truth. By doing so, we reflect the love and character of Christ and create an atmosphere conducive to God’s presence and blessing.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of speech and the power inherent in our words. Help us to steward our speech wisely, recognizing its profound impact on our lives and the lives of others. May our words be aligned with your truth and used to advance your Kingdom purposes on earth. Give us the wisdom and discernment to speak life, declare your promises, and build up those around us. May our speech be a reflection of your love and grace, bringing glory to your name. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Further Reading:

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) – “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
James 3:5-6 (NIV) – “Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.”
May this devotional on “Kingdom Run by Words” inspire you to steward your speech wisely and use it to advance God’s Kingdom purposes. May you be intentional about speaking life, declaring God’s promises, and building up others with your words, knowing that they have the power to shape your reality and influence the world around you.
