Daily Devotional for February 20
When he woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the water, “Quiet down!”
The command of faith in the mouth of Jesus was astounding. With two words, an entire storm broke, and the violence of death was stilled. The Word of God in your mouth is the most powerful force in the world. Paul said, “The message is close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart” (Romans 10:8). Jesus is the Word; therefore, when you speak the Word, you are speaking Jesus into your situation. Faith consists of first believing in your heart that God’s Word is true and then speaking that Word to your circumstances and watching them change. When Jesus spoke the command of faith to the legion of demons, they had no choice but to obey (Mark 5:13). The centurion, too, understood this principle and told the Lord that all that was needed was a simple command from His mouth for his servant to be healed (Matthew 8:8-9). Joshua spoke to the sun, Jesus spoke to the fig tree, and you can speak to your storms. Expect the Word of God in your mouth to move mountains!
