is black text on a white background you can simply place the text layer on top and the image in the layer below.
Above the layers dialog is a drop down menu.Those are your layer modes.Select the top text layer and set the mode for it to multiply. OR
Select the top layer and go to Colors>Color to Alpha and select white (by default it already is).
That will make your text have transparency around it.

If you have text on a textured background try to select just the text with the color select tool in the toolbox and go to Select > Invert
Then go to Edit>Clear

That will clear all but the text,

Hope that helps.
