What have you released in your atmosphere this morning? Have you legislated the outcome of the happenings in your day?
We live a causal realm, so don’t just accept what life throws at you, wake up and issue commands and counter-commands, that enforces what is written. Playing a victim in life does not benefit you nor anyone. Self-pity is only an indication that you are in the pit. You may be in the pit today but that is not your destination, arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of God is risen upon you.
Your life can be likened to a garden, and the plants in this garden, as the result of the seeds of your word spoken. If you don’t want to see it in your future, don’t give a voice to it. When we speak we are not only saying what we feel or think, but also we are issuing commands and granting permissions for existence.
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. (Job 22:28)
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Prov. 18:21)
What product is your tongue manufacturing: Death or Life? Life is manufactured when what we say is consistent with the word of God. Death is produced when we say what we feel and think in the midst of our confusion, trouble and worry.
Nobody will intentionally grow weeds in their garden, weeds are wild. So it’s not a matter of not saying anything negative or bad, but it’s about consciously, consistently and intentionally declaring your identity in consistency with what God has said about you in His word.
If you don’t intentionally declare and enforce who you are, then you will have to live other people’s definition of you. One day Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do men say that the Son of Man is?” And they replied “Some say you are John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others say Jeremiah or one of the prophets”.
From that day onward, Jesus began making a series of I AM statements because He did not want His real identity to be tarnished by the school of public opinion. He said of Himself; “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will give the light of life”, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet he shall live…”, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”, etc.
Stop looking everywhere else except God for help, the miracle is in your mouth. It’s not about what others are saying about you that matters, what are you saying about yourself? What kind of conversation do you have with yourself when no one is around?
It’s not about being proud or braggadocios, it’s about conviction in the heart as a result of knowledge from God’s word overflowing from the deep wells of the soul of man.
I speak because I believe!
You will also speak, if you believe.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; (2 Corin 4:13)
Don’t look on and beg for mercy while life passes you by. Life has never been fair, it’s not going to be anytime soon. But all hope is not lost, the miracle is in your mouth!
David did not kill Goliath with a sword, his words killed him.
45Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord‘s, and he will give you into our hands. (1 Samuel 17:45-47)
Every closed mouth equals a closed destiny.
Go, search through the word, study it, eat the scroll and when your belly is full, then speak. Then and only then will you see; light shining out of darkness, your life coming into divine alignment with the vision and purposes of God, favor surrounding you as a shield on every side, your yokes destroyed and the heavy burden lifted off of your shoulder.
Please Repeat this Confession:
I am the seed of Abraham the world belongs to me. I am a victor any day, anywhere and anytime. I am the light of the world, darkness is far from me and my household. I am a burning and a shining light, I have clarity of thought because I have the mind of Christ. I don’t talk foolishly, I speak well, I speak wisdom. Glory to God.
