Were did this idea of speaking things into existence come from? I love Donald Lawrence and his contributions to gospel music has been wonderful. But of late he's moving toward that New Age way of thinking which is "The ME gospel". In an interview about his latest project in which Lawrence said he wanted people to realize how powerful words are and that they have the power to set the tempo for their life's success. The enemy has influenced their words and they are no longer speaking like kings but there is a king inside...Change your speech to that of a ruler." Here is one title off the CD that caught my attention. "Let The Word Do The Work" I don't believe we alone have the power to set the tempo for our life. If you have not accepted the Word of God then your words have no power. It's by Jesus that we have this power and not we by our self. The CD is about applying the Word of the Lord to everyday life that it may change your personal speech speaking only positive things and things of good report,” says Lawrence. The Law Of Confession.
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ
He said in verse 3 “let there be light” and there was light. In verse 6 He said let there be firmament and then in verse 7 He made the firmament. He made all things by Jesus.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In verses 9-12 He “said”, however in Genesis Chapter 2 we see the work that God did to make those things come to pass.
If you truly want something to change in your life speak it and then make sure that your faith is followed by action. However, your words and actions should line up with the Word of God!
