God's word framed the world. He spoke and created.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
God made us in His image and He created. He made us to create just like He did. Spoken words are our tools by which we use to frame our own world.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
If words are our tools then the question is, how well are we using those tools? Are you choosing words that build up or destroy? Do you encourage or discourage?
James 1:26 If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless.
For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses' mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
James teaches us that "no man" can tame the tongue. But one thing is for sure; Christ can!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
The key is Lordship. Turning everything in your life over to Christ recognizing that He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We need to have our minds renewed by the washing of the water with the Word of (Ephesians 5:26) and as we do this our minds are transformed.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Then we are positioned to "prove" God's word because we will have discovered His will. His words will become our words and our words His. Then we shall see:
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Framing Your World - Faith and Words Work Together
So if you are not satisfied with what is in your world, then take the time to learn what God's world and His thoughts look like and change your mind. Changing your mind is just another way of saying "repent." Then you can do like Abraham did and discover God's thoughts toward you and begin to use your words to agree with God's and call things that were not, as though they were. He did this for 25 years before He saw the manifestation. So be patient, consistent and disciplined..... like a disciple.
Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed — God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, "So shall your descendants be."
