I remember the day when my father (Dr. T.L. Osborn) came to my office and said to me, “Daughter, do you know that God has given people the creative power of words?” He went on to discuss the nature of God, His creative and living words, the shaping power of words, and the gift that God gave His human creation to speak words that heal. Yes, I knew that there is power in the Word of God and that when we speak God’s words, we are casting His will among the people, planting the seeds that produce healing and change. But on that day, I felt a fresh revelation concerning the power that every believer has to bring healing within their spheres of influence.
Whenever I open my mouth, I’m aware that WORDS CAN HEAL. I am often invited to speak to nations via radio or television, such as was the case in Liberia. People responded with questions and requests for prayer. They expressed hope and faith in the good words of Jesus Christ.
