Transformation! Power of Words

Excerpt: Stop Dancing With The Enemy: Foundational Step 2: Dance of the Word

 Dance with The Deceiver

Precious and The Deceiver begin to dance. The floor beneath them is crumbling, decayed, and treacherous, and there is no foundation beneath her feet. She is slipping into what feels like a dark abyss. Negative unspoken words of others and judgments are spiraling around, causing fear and condemnation. Her soul feels like the dark night of endless despair. The Deceiver’s words are like shards of glass cutting her soul.


Words have great power. They have the power to shape, influence, build, destroy, plant, and bring things into being. Consider what happened before creation. The earth was dark and empty, and God spoke, and creation occurred after He spoke. Words we speak over our selves have the same power over us. They are seeds and will produce after it own kind. Rejection reproduces rejection.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Gen. 1:1–2

Creation progresses as God speaks,

…light

…separation of night and day

…division between land and sea

…vegetation, trees,

…moon and sun to govern night and day

…all animal life

…creation of mankind (man and women).

Just as God’s Word has power to create, so the words we hear either spoken or unspoken have the impact to create, build, destroy, or influence us. Do you remember hearing words that stuck with you? Did they cause damage to your soul, or did they impart encouragement?

We are often the byproduct of spoken or unspoken words. Our souls are often filled with wounds resulting from negative, harsh, or hurtful words. They are like fruit and will deposit their seeds and reproduce in our life. God’s desire is for His Word to shape and influence us. This foundational step will be incorporated at the end of each chapter in “Dance of Freedom” section. We will learn to identify life-stealing words and replace them with the life-giving Word of God.

Speak what God says

Transformation came when I learned to speak the Word of God over myself until I believed what He was saying. Every promise became a treasure. It was not just theological information like before, but it became heart knowledge. Then the power began    to work in my heart and life. I began to experience God’s power through His Word. By my confession I was saved. Reading is good, but faith comes by hearing the Word. I cannot hear the Word unless I speak it.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Rom 10:17

I want to agree with God’s Word because it will not return to Him empty. It will accomplish what pleases God, and it will be prosperous or successful. We can be assured that the truth of God never changes. It is reliable, trustworthy, and unwavering.

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. Is. 55:11


 Dance with The Beloved

Once again, The Beloved offers to dance with Precious. He is the Word. As He speaks truth it feels foreign because all she has heard has been the life-stealing words of The Deceiver. Her wounded heart has so many broken pieces, it seems impossible to comprehend whole- ness. The Beloved, relentless in His love, speaks over and over words of life to her broken heart. As she listens and speaks His Word, she sees her heart become new and mended. Life, joy, peace, and love flood the once-darkened places. The dark abyss is now a beautiful well of living water emanating from the Light of The Beloved’s glory.

  • Transformation! Ignite Your New Man Thinking
    Ignite: Catch fire, catch light, burst into flames, detonate, go off, Now it’s time to ignite your New Man thinking. The word “ignite” means to catch fire, catch light, burst into flames, that to me, and go off. What a great word picture of what the word of God does to transform and change us. I imagine when God created heaven and earth, and there was nothing there was so much power in his Word it  caused atoms, molecules, ions to ignite a form and fashion creation. Maybe not literally in terms of  fire, but the idea of cause and Continue reading Transformation! Ignite Your New Man Thinking
