For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)


God created Adam and Eve to operate the same way He operates. As speaking spirits, they were designed to follow His example, using their words to accomplish His plan by being fruitful, multiplying, replenishing, subduing, and taking dominion over the Earth (Genesis 1:26, 28). As long as they were in complete unity and one accord with God, life was perfect. Their words reflected God’s mind and heart, which meant their lives and everything around them was good. But then the serpent came, tempted Eve, and many things changed.

How did the serpent tempt Eve? He challenged God’s Word. He said, “Hath God said…?” (Genesis 3:1). The devil has never changed! He is still trying to cause believers to doubt God’s Word today. He knows the power of words, especially God’s words.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they left a spiritual existence and fell into a natural one. Their carnal reasoning and physical senses became the extent of their ability. Their spirits were disconnected from God, so their words no longer reflected His heart and mind. After the Fall, their words reflected the sin and death that reigned in their hearts and minds.


Dear Father, I desire to operate the way You do and not be limited to my physical senses as the world is limited. Thank you for sending Jesus so that I could once again operate through the supernatural realm of the Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
