AUGUST, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD!
Scriptures For Meditation — Ecc 8:4; Mark 11:22-24
“Where the word of a king is, there is power; And who may say to him, “What are you doing?”
“Where the word of a king is, there is power…”
Waiting for direction for our concluding prayers on the last day of this month’s fasting and prayer, the first part of our scripture for today (Ecc 8:4) was what kept ringing in my spirit —
As the Amplified version of the bible puts it:
“the word of a king is authoritative and powerful…”.
There is great power in the word of God! The prophets of the Old Testament times exhibited a profound understanding of this truth, as they would usually preface a prophecy to the people with the phrase:
“Thus saith the Lord”;
and the Lord would back up the words that He gave them to speak in His Name, by His miraculous power!
We read about Ezekiel commanding the dry bones to hear the word of the Lord and come to life; God also commanded him to prophesy to the mountains and hills of Israel and to call out to every kind of bird and all the wild animals.
Elijah declared to the skies to withhold rain for three and a half years. Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it obeyed; He spoke to the seas and the winds, they obeyed; He called out to Lazarus, dead four days and stinking; Lazarus came back to life —
And the NLT version puts it this way:
“His command is backed by great power. No one can resist or question it.” Ecc 8:4
Even death and the grave could not resist the power and authority of the word of His command.
As the bible tells us in Heb 1:3, He upholds all things by the word of His power. Hallelujah!
With all these in mind, we will open our mouths and declare God’s counsel and blessings over and into the month of August, concerning every area of our lives, church and family.
Come, Bless the Lord
Psa 134:1 A Song of Ascents. Behold, bless the LORD, All you servants of the LORD, Who by night stand in the house of the LORD!
Psa 134:2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the LORD.
Psa 134:3 The LORD who made heaven and earth Bless you from Zion!
Open your mouth wide and prophesy into the month of August.
Declare that it is only the counsel of the Lord that will stand in your life, family, household, business, ministry, education, etc.
Petition God for, and declare open heavens over the month of August.
Prophesy divine alignment of your life with the resources, provisions and blessings that God had purposed for your season.
Prophesy the opening of the miraculous gateways and the doorways of blessings, favour and breakthroughs for yourself, your household and the church family in Jesus’s Name.
Let God fill your mouth with praise as you thank Him in advance for answering your prayers. Amen.
