You Get What You Say!

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Prov. 18:21.

The words you spoke out of your mouth six months ago, you are living today.  The words you speak out of your mouth today you will live tomorrow.  You see Satan has no power over a Christian.  God already defeated Satan and he cannot touch you, harm you, or alter your life in any way.  He is chained up in a wheel chair, bound and gagged.  However, we give him power by the words we speak.

If you are speaking negative into your life, negative happens.  I hear people say all the time, “If it ain’t one thing, it’s another.”  Well no duh, you keep speaking that garbage and garbage keeps happening.   We have to control our tongue! You have to speak the promises of God into your life and into the life of your children.

That’s why it is so important to know God’s promises.  You see, it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are, it doesn’t matter what your bank statement says- the promise is that God will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory. Phil. 4:19. So you speak, “thank you God that I have more than enough.  Thank you God that my basket is full, and my store house is overflowing.”

Speak faith not fact!  It doesn’t matter what the doctor’s report is.  God says, by his stripes you were healed.  I Peter 2:24.Speak healing into your life and body.

Parents, speak faith into your children’s lives.  Praise God for your children being Godly and fulfilling God’s purpose in their life.  Praise God that your children are well behaved kids that people brag about how good they are.

Remember, you get what you say!  If you say to the mountain, be thou removed and cast into the sea and you believe it, the mountain has to move!  The mountain does not have a choice!

Proverbs 21:23 says, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepth is soul from trouble.”  We have to change the way we speak.  We have to make a decision to change the words that come out of our mouth.  If you do say something negative, and you catch yourself, just come right back with the promise!

The tongue is a little member of our body but it turns our whole body and controls our life.  Horses are turned by bits in their mouth.  Large ships are turned by small helms.  And people, you and me, are controlled by our tongue.  So the most important thing you can do right now, is control your tongue.  If you put your tongue under submission, your entire body will be under submission.

So when you pray, thank God for fulfilling the promises in your life that he promised.  You are entitled to those promises through the New Covenant!  When you are talking to others, speak faith into your life. Don’t concern yourself with the circumstance.  Don’t magnify your little problem and give it any power by your words.  Take that little problem and look at it as already defeated, already fixed and speak faith into your life and at your problem.  If you are not sure the promise, get in your Bible.  Get in a Bible based Church and learn God’s Word.  It is life changing! Remember, God already won! God already fixed your problem.  What you got to do is believe it!  If you believe it, you will speak it!  And that’s the LIFE.

If you are facing a problem and would like prayer warriors on your side, send me an email.  I have a prayer team that will pray for you and your family.  We believe in the power of God and have seen his miraculous works in our lives and are excited to see him pour out his spirit on all flesh!

Perception is Reality

The beautifulness of an object or event doesn’t change just because people try to make it ugly.  The way people perceive things is their own reality, but you can CHOOSE your perception.

Think about it- glass half full or glass half empty.  The glass has the same amount of water in it.  The only thing that changes is the individual’s perception of the glass.

So much is determined by the choices we make.  Makes me wonder if it really is that simple to choose your way to a happy life why would anyone choose hate, bitterness, sadness, despair, anger, unforgiveness… the list goes on.

What allows someone to make the positive choice? What is the missing piece?

Certainly no one that knew they could do something as simple as choose, would choose anything but happiness.

Willpower- courage-strength- hope-longsuffering-love.  It’s the want to: It is easy to have a self-pity party; ask my kids- they do it all the time.  But when you are a child you are expected to act like a child, when you are an adult- well you are expected to act like an adult.

I know people that can fix anything- they will find some way to make it work, whatever it is, it will work.  They don’t quit; they don’t complain about it, they just fix it.

I know other people- if something doesn’t go exactly the way they think it should or something breaks they throw a big ole fit- temper tantrum- and ruin their time and everyone else’s.

Guess who I want to spend my time with!  What’s the difference? Perception!  One person sees a problem as an opportunity to fix something- do they like it? No- but they don’t pick up their ball and go home when they don’t get their way.

The other person- well let’s just say everyone usually walks on egg shells; praying nothing will go wrong so everyone’s time is not ruined.  These people, in my opinion, actually enjoy pitching a fit.  The same way a child does.  Its a form of a release for them.

You can choose to view the world differently.  Once you know who you are in Christ and how he views you- you can see the world through his eyes.  When something doesn’t go exactly how you planned it- it will be okay.  God will provide a plan B, or even a plan C.  As long as you know God is your provider and he is on your side, you can handle whatever comes your way with grace.

Choose a positive mindset today!  When you wake up in the mornings think and SAY- it’s a Glass half-full kind of day!

Speak Faith not Facts

God is so good! He never ceases to fulfill his promises. As the seed of Abraham, all the promises in the Bible belong to us. We claim those promises by faith. The Bible states that if we have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, and we say to the mountain be removed and cast into the sea, it will be removed.

Do you know how small a mustard seed is? It is so very tiny! Which means we only have to have a little bit of faith. Just imagine if you believed with your whole heart the promises God spoke belong to you. What a difference in your life that would make. I encourage you, start today declaring God’s promises over your life.

Speak, “All my needs are met according to his riches in glory.” “I am healed because by Jesus’s stripes I was healed. And if I was healed then, I am healed now.” Don’t believe the doctor’s report. Don’t believe your bank statement. Believe the All Mighty God. Speak faith not fact. Don’t focus on your circumstances, focus on your Redeemer.

Someone attacking you? “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

Uncertain about your future? “All things work together for the good of those that are called according to his purpose. God knows the beginning and the end.”

Don’t let fear, despair, or discouragement rise up within you. Claim the promises that are yours as an heir of Jesus. Speak faith until you have a peace in your spirit. And if that doubt tries to rise back up, speak faith all over again! Faith is a decision you make every minute of the day!

When we have faith. We will act on those promises. Faith without works is dead. Speak the faith, don’t speak negativity in your life. Get alone in your bedroom or prayer closet and speak faith. Don’t then turn around and go poor mouth to your friends. Don’t go speak gloom and doom to your spouse. It’s best to speak faith to your friends and spouse. But if that is uncomfortable at first- that’s okay. Just say nothing to the outside world about your circumstance. When the topic comes up, just say, “I believe God on this one.” Speak faith to God alone. Proclaim it! Proclaim the promises as yours!

I know you will be blessed today! I know you are prosperous! I know you are healed! I stand in agreement with you! If you would like to be added to our prayer list, shoot me an email. We would be honored to stand up with you and intercede for you!
