OUTFLOW OF WORDS
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If
any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water
Let’s review what we just read: Jesus said if you believe in me as the Scripture has said, out of your belly—your innermost being—shall flow rivers of living water. When He says rivers of living water, what does that mean? What are these living waters? They’re words, rivers of living words.
Many had thought the rivers of living water refer to the outflow of the Spirit from us; no, they’re actually words of life. The Spirit is transmitted in words, because words are spirit. Jesus said in John 6:63, “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
We pour out spirit when we pour out words. When you take the Word of God from within your spirit and speak it forth, when you prophesy, you’re pouring out rivers of living water. This is what the Bible says, and if we follow the Word, we’ll always have the right results.
Study the New Testament; you’d find that whenever the apostles were filled with the Spirit, it resulted in outflow of words: they spoke the Word of God with boldness (Acts 4:31); the Word of the Lord grew and multiplied (Acts 6:7, Acts 12:24).
Being filled with the Spirit always resulted in an outflow of words. That’s why you must put a premium on words. Every so often, get yourself filled with the Spirit according to Ephesians 5:18-20 and pour out words—gushers of living water! Those words will tame the world, change circumstances and give life to everything in and around you.
Dear Father, I release positive energy through my words, for they’re unlimited and eternal. I speak life to everything that concerns me; I declare that I’m strengthened, energized and emboldened to preach
the Gospel, and there’s a great haul of souls into the kingdom. I declare great grace upon my family, job, ministry and finances. I affirm God’s Word in every situation and speak life only. Hallelujah!
