20 Praise the LORD, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
20 Praise the LORD, you angels of his,
you mighty creatures who carry out his plans,
listening for each of his commands.
21 Yes, praise the LORD, you armies of angels
who serve him and do his will!
Do you realize that there are angels listening to see what you are saying so that they can get to work on your behalf? It is imperative that you say what God says. We must pray and speak what God says about our situations, our circumstances, our trials, and our lives. The scripture above says that the angels listen for God’s commands and they obey. The angels recognize what you say when you speak the Word of God. As His children, we must say what our Father says about us and confess what His Word says about what we face in life. By doing so, we dispatch those angles who serve God and do His will.
No matter what you are dealing with, you can find out what God says about it in His Word. Simply begin to make those truths a part of the foundation on which you stand until the desired result manifests. Say what God says. Declare what the Word says. This does not just apply to times when you are praying or purposely setting time aside to confess the Word pertaining to your situation. Make sure that the words spoken in your everyday conversation line up with the Word of God. Do not inadvertently cancel the commands or negate the Word previously confessed by voicing frustration, doubt, or unbelief. Keep those angels on their assignment. Do not pull them off their task by being careless about what comes out of your mouth.
Give the angels something to work with and keep your expectation on high. Do not let your angels stand around with nothing to do! When God’s Word is spoken, it gets the attention of the angels and they work to serve and do His will. Find out what God’s will is for you and your life, and begin to speak it, announce it, and just say it!
Prayer: Father, thank you reminding me that when I speak what you say, the angels are at work bringing your will to pass. My desire is to stay committed to saying what you say so that your glory will shine forth in my life and in the life situations that I face. Thank you for allowing me to stay on track with your Word as the guidebook for the words I speak. Amen.
