We have been given that same power and authority. We, too, can speak into the darkness and command light. Command life. Command prosperity and instruction. Command the light of Jehovah Himself to shine upon our nation. We can and must do that.

A friend of mine, Karen Hardin, recently shared something with me that she has been doing. After hearing her share it the third time, it finally dawned on me that it must be something God wanted me to do as well.

Karen told me that she had been reading the word of God out loud each day. Not only out loud, but outside. Knowing as the word of God is released into the atmosphere, things will change. The atmosphere will change, just as they did for God in Genesis 1:3.

A couple days ago, I began to follow her example. Bible in hand, I head to my porch. I read the word of God into the atmosphere. Out loud. Once I am done, I pray for a few moments. Asking God to allow the words we are speaking out loud and outside to change the atmosphere. To drive out the fear, anxiety, and chaos. To release peace and His light in our nation.

This morning after I finished speaking the word of God into the atmosphere I began to think. What if all of us did this daily? What kind of impact would that make? Would be begin to see the same magnitude of light that God saw that day? Would we begin to see a new beginning? A God-filled, anointed beginning?

There is great power in declaring the word of God. There is dynamic power in agreement.

Today, I invite you to join Karen and I in this endeavor. Take a few moments, read the word of God out loud, and outside. It doesn’t matter what you read, Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms. All of the word of God is powerful – just read!
