Place A Demand: The Word Revives
"Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go." John 11: 43-44 (NKJV)
Today, we will be placing a demand on the Word of God to revive every good thing that is dead in our lives.
To revive means to bring back to life and full functionality from a state of death or inactivity. We will be asking God to revive us in every area where we need to be fully alive and active.
The Word of God is living (see Hebrews 4:12) and can send life into any dead situation as seen from our Bible passage for today.
The Word of God is not only able to raise people from the dead, but it can also command life into dead situations, dead body parts, and inactive or dormant spiritual lives.
For us to be able to place a demand on the word of God, we need to first be children of God indeed—we must not only read the word, but we must believe the word, and the proof of our belief in the word is living by the word. That is, unless we live by the word, we don’t really believe the word (see James 2:14-26).
Let us pray:
Father, I thank You for Your Word that You have made available to us Your children. Thank You Father because Your Words are Spirit and Life. Thank You, Father, because as Your Word abides in me, they give me life and through them, I can receive whatever I ask.
Father, by the power of Your Word, I command every good thing that is dead or dormant in my life to receive new life in the name of Jesus Christ.
Father, by the power of Your Word, I command the life of God into my environment, let every dead work around me be replaced with works of light, in the name of Jesus.
Father, by the Power of Your Word, please give me life in my spirit and let Your life flow through me to everyone, everything and every situation around me, in the name of Jesus.
Thank you Father for Your Words that say You will do whatever I say to Your ears for me.
In Jesus' name, I pray.
