Some people asked Jesus in John 6:28 “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” Jesus said in John 6:29 “This is the work of God that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent”. God had sent His son Jesus, and Jesus is the word of God. When you believe the word: when you speak the word: and when you devote yourself to the word, then you are doing the works of God.
If you read Genesis Chapter 1, you will observe that the major instrument used for creation was the word. No effort was recorded, no other work was mentioned other than “…And God said, let there be … and there was …” The only work God did apart from the word was the creation of man (and woman). Firstly, He spoke, “Let us make man …”. Secondly, he molded the image with dust of the earth. Thirdly, he breathe on man, and man became a living soul. Apart from man, all created things (and beings) were spoken into existence
Though faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things, which are seen, were not made of things which do appear. Heb. 11:3
And the Bible says God rested on the seventh day. The work He did was the word he spoke. This is the reason why many of us preachers get very tired after finishing sessions of preaching and prayers. Those who are involved in deliverance will agree with me that they get tired after the deliverance session, because they use God’s creative word in the process.
If anyone is sick, speak the word and God will work the works of healing. If anyone is poor, speak the word and God will work the works of prosperity. If anyone is dying, speak the word and God will work the works of life. If anyone is bound, speak the word and God will work the works of deliverance.
In the battle of life, speak the word and victory is SURE because God will work. Each time you speak the word of God, then God is ready to be at work. Using water, spiritual materials like candles, cross, oil for spiritual battle will not give you victory. Victory comes when the word is proclaimed by faith. The word is the work.
