TODAY’S TEXT: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. 7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength’ (Acts 3:6-7)
TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT CHANGES OUR DECLARATIONS
What you see determines what you speak. Our declarations are influenced by our visions. In 1 John 1:1-3 the apostle reiterate this important truth about how what we see affects what we speak.
‘That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.’
The things we have seen influences the things that we speak. Our declaration can never be better or greater than our vision. It, therefore, goes without saying that when the Holy Spirit changes our vision he automatically changes our declaration too! When we receive the supply of the Spirit our declarations changes!
Peter was a man who could not stand for Jesus but once the Holy Spirit came in Acts 2, he not only preached in that name but in Acts 3:1-6 he healed in that name! What declarations he made in those names and there were instant miracles! A man who has seen strange things will declare strange things! Peter has seen the risen king ascend into heaven, saw the supply of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, all these spiritual encounters changed his declarations forever!
Isaiah 43:26 says, ’declare thou that you may be justified’. As it has been shown to you by the Spirit declare the counsel of God over your life. And as you do you will see miracles, signs, and wonders! Amen.
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord fill my mouth by your Spirit to declare your counsel
TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: When we receive the supply of the Spirit our declarations changes!
