… for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me – Hebrews 13:5-6
Proverbs 6:2 says, “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.” This scripture underscores the precarious situations many have found themselves in today. They’ve been taken captive by their negative confessions; bound by their words. However, if you’ve been taught right, you’ll think right, and the result of that is, you’ll talk right. Moreover, when you talk right, you’ll act right. When you talk right and act right, your life will turn out right.
Our confessions rule us. When it comes to words, there’s no such thing as “I actually didn’t mean it.” Jesus didn’t say, “You shall have what you mean,” He said, you shall have what you say (Mark 11:23). When you joke, don’t joke against the Word. Consciously speak in consonance with the Word always—over your life, finances, business, health, etc.
Proverbs 18:20 says, “A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.” Here, the scripture isn’t talking about how big your lips are. It’s talking about the words of wisdom pouring out of your mouth. If you’re not going to live a hungry life, then you’re advised to speak the right words. If you don’t want to be broke, then talk the right kind of talk—the God talk!
Proverbs 18:21 tells us, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” This means you can speak life and reap a harvest of good things. Whatever you believe and voice out with your mouth is what’s going to happen in your life. This is a law of the spirit, and it works, whether or not you believe it.
Dear Father, I thank you for showing me the way to a life of continuous victory, through my faith-filled confessions, in accordance to your word! I’ll never be discouraged nor subject to the crippling principles of this world, because the Word of God on my lips is God talking. I reign triumphantly over all the negativities of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
