TOPIC: Speak God’s Language
SCRIPTURE: Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual (1 Corinthians 2:13).
RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
In Galatians 4:1-2, the Bible says, “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.” An heir is someone who has an inheritance bequeathed to him, a legal inheritor of an estate or position of high authority and wealth.
However, as long as the heir is a child, he’s not different from a servant. The word translated “child” is “nepios,” one who’s unable to talk right or communicate wisely. Someone can be forty years in Christianity and still be a “nepios”; he can’t form the right words in the realm of the spirit.
Yes, the Word says we’re heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, but “nepios” can’t live the life of an heir. 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “…all things are yours”; but they’re suffering through life because they haven’t matured spiritually. They use the wrong terms because they’ve never learnt God’s language.
The way to learn and speak God’s language is by studying and meditating on the Word. Our theme verse says we’re to speak words which the Holy Ghost teaches— words of wisdom from and by the Spirit. So, get yourself trained in the Word of God and have the Word in your heart and on your lips always, irrespective of the circumstance.
I speak the wisdom of God in esoteric language. In Christ Jesus, I’ve been given dominion over circumstances, and I’m superior to Satan and the forces of darkness. The life God has given me in Christ is that of great glory and excellence, where I prosper in all things, by His Word! I’m full of wisdom, glory and strength. Hallelujah!
