Apostle Grace Lubega
James 1:22(KJV); But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
The Greek word for “doers” in our theme scripture is “poiētēs” which is translated to mean, among other things, “a poet.”
A poet is a person who makes something out of words. He knows how to weave with beautiful skill the fabric of words to produce beauty.
That is how God expects us to be with His own Word!
The Lord has made great and wondrous promises to us in the scriptures. He has told us who we are and what we can do in Him. We are heads and not tails, above and not beneath. We are the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hid. We are stars, shining brighter and brighter unto a perfect day. The Bible is full of line upon line of endless possibilities.
What are you doing with such beautiful material?
Some people have heard these words over and over but they are not poets of the Word! Even when they are in dire situations that only the Word can beautify, they are silent in their misery and passive in affliction.
A poet is vigilant in expression. Silence is not an art form. You must do something with the Word.
If disease dares to come, get a hold of the Word and weave some poetry. “By his stripes, I was healed. Disease is shackled in the past and has no gateway into my present and future.”
If situations dare to question your identity, arise in scriptural poetry and declare, “I am the offspring of divinity, not blood-begotten, not flesh-begotten but God-begotten!”
The Word is near you, it is in your mouth (Romans 10:8) and in it is the answer to that situation. Speak it! Declare it! Own it! Walk in it! Paint your world in it!

GOLDEN NUGGET: A poet of the Word is vigilant in expression. Silence is not an art form. You must do something with the Word.
Speak it! Declare it! Own it! Walk in it! Paint your world in it!
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I receive it in my spirit and walk in its manifestation. My world is a Word-world. The Bible says that by faith we know that that the worlds were made by the Word of God. I fashion my world with Your Word, I define its streets, its buildings and its systems with the Word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
