Daily Bread – November 3, 2023 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) Isaiah 59:21 – As for Me, this is My Covenant with them, says Yahaoh, “My Spirit that is upon you and My word which I put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, and from the mouth of your seed, and from the mouth of your seed’s seed.” says Yahoah, from now on until eternity. How could God have said more emphatically that we are to continue to speak His Word – to declare from our own mouths all of His promises and blessings? As God commanded the children of Israel, He commands us now and forever to not let the Word of this Law depart of our mouth, but to recite it day and night that we may observe to do according to all that is written therein – and then shall our way prosper, and then shall we have understanding (Joshua 1:8; Psalms 1:2; Hebrews 10:23; Colossians 3:16; Philemon 1:6; Romans 10:8). When God refers to the Law, He is not just referring to the Law of Moses, but to everything He has declared through the mouth of His prophets since the world began – as well as to the New Covenant which we now enjoy (1 Peter 1:10-12; Mathew 5:18; Romans 3:21, 13:8; Luke 11:49-51). We spend way too much time speculating and talking about things that are totally irrelevant to what God has declared. If we find ourselves unsuccessful and lacking the things God has promised, then we should look to what is coming out of our mouths. Do we have God’s Word coming out of our mouths? His Word being in our mouth is a declaration that we are the seed referred to as being part of the New Covenant. God promised to place His Word in our mouths by writing it on our hearts and minds (Hebrews 8:10, 10:16; Jeremiah 31:33). We need to stop living by our own perception of things, and our own rational interpretation of the events as men and circumstances would dictate. Our own reflections and understanding of who we are and what we can do are meaningless heresy. We need to live by the Word of God and speak His Word to the wind and the waves of trouble, and prophesy His blessings over our lives and even adverse circumstances. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
