"...God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were" (Rom. 4:17).

Words are important to God. This Scripture says that God uses words to call those things that are not as though they were. Some people say, "Well, that's fine for God, but we shouldn't be doing that." But the Bible says our words are important as well.

First, look at Proverbs 14:3: "In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them." Notice it doesn't say the lips of the wise will pickle them; it says their lips will preserve them!

Then in 1 Thessalonians 5:23, Paul told the Thessalonian church how he prayed for them: "I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Paul prayed that we'd be preserved blameless while we walk on this earth. But what preserves us from the enemy who wants to steal, kill and destroy us? Proverbs 14:3 gives us the answer: "the lips of the wise."

As our own mouths speak forth God's wisdom, our faith-filled words will preserve us from the enemy's strategies arrayed against us. That's why it's wise to follow God's example and call those things that be not as though they were!

I speak God's purpose for my life into existence, calling those things that be not as though they were. In Jesus' name, I speak healing to my body and health and wholeness to all my flesh!
