You Have The Power……
So Just Change It
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,”. Proverbs 18:21a
There were two television shows that aired many, many years ago which each featured a different woman who possessed “mystical” powers. The programs were entitled: Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. In both of these series, the women’s powers were only known to certain people. In the program Bewitched, the lady named Samantha; was supposed to be a good witch (oxymoron!!); who was a homemaker. She used her powers in the times of distress or of grave importance. The other program featured a little genie that lived in a capped bottle which had been found by her master who was an astronaut. What these two women had in common is that whenever they encountered a situation that was not to their liking – they would just change it. Samantha would simply twitch her nose; Jeannie would blink her eyes; and whatever they wanted to be altered – would immediately change!
Although these were mere television programs; they depicted of a truth the power and the authority that we as children of the most high God have at our disposal. Whenever we encounter a situation that is not in accord with what God has decreed it to be; we should not grumble or complain about it… we should simply - just change it. God has given to us the power and the authority to bring into divine alignment everything that is in disarray (Luke 10:9).
However, far too often we will: entertain fear instead of faith (II Timothy 1:7); become a coward instead of being courageous (Joshua 1:7); or respond to a reaction - instead of proactively thinking ahead. We, in too many instances, become discouraged when we don’t see (with our physical eyes) immediate results and then begin sabotage our own efforts with our words (II Corinthians 5:7)!
When does a change occur? Does it occur when I see the manifestation of the change? Well....that answer is twofold. Change occurs in the realm of the spirit as soon as I command it to be so! The scripture states that “Death and life ARE….not will be….but ARE – Present tense! Therefore, I can possess the ability to see it before I see it! I once heard someone say several years ago; that if you can’t see a thing before you see it – when it appears, you won’t recognize it. So just because I don’t physically see a change; doesn’t negate the fact that change has occurred and is in the process of being manifested.
As you progress throughout your day today, be determined that you will no longer just “accept” or ignore whatever you encounter that is not in accord with God’s plans and purposes. Your power lies not in a twitch of your nose; nor in the blinking of your eyes. Your power lies within your mouth (Proverbs 18:21). You have the power to alter ANY situation! So don’t grumble, don’t complain …. You’re in control. So open your mouth, speak to your situation and…..
just change it!!!
