While reflecting on this week’s blog on vocal gifts, I meditated on the power of words. God historically established things through communication- From Genesis to Revelation, it appears that communication or oratory means one of the ways God establishes his purposes on earth. God can speak directly to create or influence a matter or through others to establish an issue. This made me understand God’s interaction with Jon in Job 38, specifically, the question” “Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place?”

The concept of commanding the morning was taken from the above interaction between God and Job, where God questions Job whether he can dedicate the affairs of the earth.  To the Spirit-Filled believer, the vocal gifts, coupled with faith in God, understanding of the promises in the Bible, and proper application of Scripture, can help us alter the course of our affairs.

Jesus in Mark 11:23-24 taught that “if anyone says to this mountain, ‘be lifted and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” Through prayer, when can you change the course of negative events? Through declarations, we can speak into our day according to Scripture and establish the purposes of God. Through prophecy, we can bring to life things that are dead into being (Ezekiel 37:1-14, Romans 4:17, Romans 10:17)

Through vocal gifts, use God’s word to speak into your job, business, relationship, or marriage. Declare what you want to see in these situations in alignment with God’s promises to you-this how we “command the morning.”
