We read of this in Genesis 1:3, "And God said, 'Let there be light.'" Another example of this is found in Ezekiel 37:4, which says, "Again He said to me, 'Prophesy over these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.'" Jesus prophesies in John 11:43, "When He had said this, He cried out with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come out!'"
What happened when God prophesied in Genesis 1:3? Light manifested. And this is what happened when Ezekiel prophesied to the dry bones, "So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a noise and a shaking. And the bones came together, bone to its bone. When I looked, the sinews and the flesh grew upon them, and the skin covered them. But there was no breath in them" (Ezek. 37:7-8). And when Jesus prophesied with a loud voice over Lazarus' dead body, it came back to life and walked out from the tomb.
We are not speaking out a lie when we declare a confession of faith for a healing or a miracle. We are activating the gift of prophesy. And according to 1 Corinthians 14:3, the purpose of prophecy is, "But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men."
Today, make a quality decision that you will use the power of your words wisely; bless, not curse yourself and others; create and build up, not destroy your body in the name of Jesus; and declare those things that are not as though they already are: "In Jesus' name, I am healed."
