The Bible opens with a clear message: when God speaks, things happen! Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26 repeats the phrase, “Then God said.”

We have to speak God’s word to activate it. We have to speak God’s word into our situations, to know emotionally what to do when we feel discouraged, worried, lonely, depressed, dissatisfied, condemned, confused, tempted, angry, rebellious. When this happens, take the antidote of God’s word. When we experience fear, feel mentally disturbed, need of courage, need of patience, need of peace, feel lukewarm spiritually, in grief, in doubt about God, then we need to take God’s antidote: His word! He spoke to each one of these situations through his word!
