Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21).
Everything God gave us is activated through speech – words. Many, however, don’t understand the power of words. The primary function of your mouth and your tongue is to steer your life in God’s direction for you. Remember what the Bible tells us about God in the book of Genesis; it says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light (Genesis 1:1-3).
The first speech we notice from God wasn’t to somebody; rather, He started by talking to situations and circumstances. He was making things happen through the power of speech, showing us what we’re supposed to do with words. He wanted light and He said, “…let there be light”, and light came into being. He gave us the ability to speak so that like Him, we can call into existence the things that we want to see in our lives and environment this 2020.
Your words locate you; what you say determines where you’ll be in life. That’s the reason it’s so important for you to avoid talking negatively. For instance, when a Christian declares, “I can’t do such-and-such”, he may think that only applies to the context of that particular statement, but it’s not so! That statement immediately works in his spirit and affects his divine nature.
This accounts for why some Christians are in a dilemma in their walk of faith. They think they know the Word of faith; yet they’re not getting the right results of the Word in their lives, and they wonder why the contradiction. The reason is that they’ve programmed too much negativism into their spirits which must be changed. And only the Word can make that happen.
Your life will always go in the direction of your words
Think and talk right.
Talk according to the scriptures! Be sure that your words are in sync with the revealed Word of God always. That way, you’ll consistently make progress, and chart your course from glory to glory.
I am walking in God’s plan and in the centre of His will.
I have entered 2020 with boldness and confidence, for the Word of the Lord has gone ahead of me; I look ahead with joy, knowing that the Lord has prepared my path. I walk on preordained pathways, doing those good works which God has predestined for me, and I’m living the good life which he prearranged and made ready for me.
I have clarity of vision and strong focus throughout 2020; no darkness, no distractions, no confusion, no failure in Jesus’ name.
