I find myself quoting my mother a lot lately. Like when someone had a run in her hose, mother always said, “Just keep them looking at your face.” Or she would say, “No one will ever notice on a galloping horse.”
Mother loved to quote the Bible, “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye alo to them likewise” Luke 6:31. Or “To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin” James 4:17.
There is no arguing with a mother who quotes the Word of God to you.
How often do we quote the most important person in the world? What God has to say about any given situation is more important than what anyone else says. When you stand face to face with a problem, it really doesn’t matter what you think or what anyone else thinks. What matters is what God has to say about it.
The words written in ink on a page of a book have no power. Having a Bible on your coffee table is good, but the greatest Book ever written is just paper and ink until the words are spoken. The Word of God does you no good if you don’t properly use it. How did God Himself use it? He spoke it. So how do you properly use it? You have to speak it.
For instance, when facing a pile of bills that must be paid right now, speak God’s Word that says, “My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Phil 4:19.
Just believing in your heart that God will supply all your need is sweet, it is good, but it is not enough. You access the power of God’s Word by speaking it.
The power of God is in the spoken Word of God, so start quoting God.
