God’s Words

Genesis 1:26-27

The power to create comes from God’s inner being. His dynamic, living, self energizing, creative force of faith is released with His Words. In Genesis 1 alone, 10 times the Scriptures tell us “God said,” as He released His faith to create day and night, the firmament, dry land, plants and trees, the stars and planets, etc. Hebrews 11:3 says, “By faith we understand that the universe was framed by the Word of God, so that things that are seen were not made out of things which are visible.”

Man was created the same way, God formed him from the dust of the ground “and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7). Notice, it says, “God said, ‘let us make man in our image, after our likeness…'” (Genesis 1:26). Just as He had spoken to create everything else, God spoke man into existence with His Words, essentially saying “Man, be in our image.” The “breath of life” was contained in the words spoken into Adam.

Jesus said, “It is the Spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life” (John 6:63). And Proverbs 4 says, “My son, attend to my words… for they are life to those who find out, and health to all their body (verses 20, 22).
