As for me, I shall call upon God,
And the Lord will save me.

Psalm 55:16 (NASB)

Words are powerful, both for good and for bad – all the more reason for us to be careful in how we use them. I first encountered the beautiful effect of speaking God’s Word at a Bible camp in the shadow of the Malvern Hills, the key speaker was that man of God Derek Prince. Derek and Ruth his wife began each service with an appropiate scripture to proclaim together; the effect was uplifting to all who participated. It seems such a simple action, but we should never underestimate the power of God’s Word – especially when we speak it over ourselves.

Since that summer camp in the English countryside I have often returned to speaking the Bible over myself, especially in times of trial. It is a way of plugging into my Father God’s resources; recharging my soul direct from Heaven’s provisions at my disposal.

Dear reader, let me encourage you to grow a habit of proclaimng God’s Word over your life often, in both the good and bad times. Begin with today’s verse, a proclamation of King David – it applies to you as a child of God as much as it did to him. Speak it, pray it, or sing it, repeat it several times. Let it sink into your soul and lift you; the angels will rejoice with you, and your Father God hears your every word. He will provide for and guide you by your faithfulness.

  2. A great exhortation Alan to proclaim the Word over your life. What a privilege to have heard Derek Prince speak ! I re-read his book “Spiritual Warfare” earlier this summer. I’m grateful his writings continue to be in print.

    1. Thank you Beth. I was blessed to hear Derek Prince I think it was in three services he taught that week, then he came to our church in Stockton later that year too. It certainly was a time in my life when I needed good Biblical teaching, and I certainly found it there. The pastor of the church was a lovely man of God from Fort Lauderdale whose teaching had a profound influence on many young men.
