Charles Capps: Our Words… spiritual forces…

God’s Word that is conceived in your heart, then
formed by the tongue, and spoken out of your own mouth,
becomes a spiritual force releasing the ability of God
within you.
That’s why Paul said, “I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philip-pians 4:13). His
heart (spirit) had received God’s Word. It was not Paul’s
ability that made him say that, but the ability of God
formed in him by the Word, and out of the abundance of
his heart his mouth spoke.
Those that say they can and those that say they can’t
are both right. Words are the most powerful thing in the
universe. We read in John 1:1, “In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God.” We must learn to use our words more effectively.
The words you speak will either put you over or hold you
in bondage.
