Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 17: 1-16


“And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.” (1 Kings 17: 7)

In our Focal Scripture, mention was made of how the brook Cherith dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Notice that Elijah had made a proclamation that there will be no dew or rain in the land. Elijah was in the brook Cherith, and the dryness he had proclaimed began to catch up with the brook. What Elijah said with his mouth began to affect where he was. The words of Elijah created issues in his location.

Friend, whatever you say with your mouth has the capacity to affect or influence events in your location. Your words could create the dryness you so much loathe. Your words could energize the lack or dryness that you do not want to experience. Your words could close the same doors you have been battling to open. Your words could create the same negativity that you don’t want to experience. Your words can create your reality.

Notice that the brook was an element of nature. So the words of Elijah turned an element of nature against Elijah. The words he spoke made what should ordinarily work in his favour to work against him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: the very words you speak have the capacity to turn the hands of the clock against you. The words you speak have the capacity to cause negative results to manifest for you.

Instead of speaking words that will dry up your brook, speak words that will cause the brooks of your life to flourish. Speak words that will bring forth your helpers. Use your words to call forth your new season. Use your words to create your world. Use your words to rearrange the events of your life in your favour. Use your words to call forth the profit you desire. Use your words to create the realities you want to see. Use your words profitably.

Remember, you can literally alter nature and alter your realities by your words. Speak words that will not dry up your brook. Speak words that will create your abundance.


I speak life; I choose to speak words that will be profitable to my destiny, in Jesus’ name!
