"The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all." - John 3:31
In the Message Bible, it is written as "The One who comes from above is head and shoulders over other messengers from God. The earthborn is earthbound and speaks earth language; the heaven born is in a league of his own…"
After constantly travelling from one country to the next, bible teacher Lisa Bevere realizes that as one travels, one will go through different neighborhoods in the city. One neighborhood may speak Farsi, another may speak Arabic and another may speak Mandarin.
What Lisa learnt from these travels is that people actually inhabit these languages.
You and I have been entrusted with a language that we can inhabit. It is called the Word of God.
When we speak only "earth words", we are "earth-bound". But when we speak "heaven words", then we have a heaven-connection!
It is written in the bible that Jesus spoke as one who has authority. It was not the words that He used or the amount of scriptures that He had studied. Jesus spoke with authority because of who He is.
Let's live our life as someone who is heaven-bound rather than earth-bound.
Speak the word of God to your situation.
Speak the word of God over your children.
Let's inhabit the word of God and make that our language.
