I find it mind blowing, eye opening even, that one can overcome evil situations by the words that come out of their mouths.
Makes me wonder half the time why l never grasp the habit of confessing and speaking into existence the things l want to see in my life.
Come to think of it we serve a God who speaks things into existence
“(as it is written [in Scripture], “I HAVE MADE YOU A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS ”) in the sight of Him in whom he believed, that is, God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.”
ROMANS 4:17 AMP
Whatever comes out of our mouths therefore has the capacity to manifest itself into existence, be it sadness, be it joy either in our lives or in the person who we have spoken it to.
We should not take for granted our mouths, they are divine weapons ! When they are filled with the word of God , they have the capacity to change atmospheres.
It is with the mouths we give praise and worship to God.
“With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God.” JAMES 3:9 AMP
My focus today is on how we can better use the word of God, through the word of our testimony in difficult situations, even in good times.
Overcoming by the word of our testimony
(Confessing it out loud)
1️⃣In weakness – “I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]”PHILIPPIANS 4:13 AMP 🙌🏻
2️⃣Feeling timid- “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].”2 TIMOTHY 1:7 AMP
3️⃣ Discouraged – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:9 NIV
4️⃣Feeling unloved – nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ROMANS 8:39 AMP
5️⃣Things falling apart- “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” ROMANS 8:28 AMP 👌
6️⃣Fighting spiritual welfare – “When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross.”COLOSSIANS 2:15 AMP
These are just some of the verses l came across, the Bible is a rich resource, More so, the Word of God, it is alive and active. When we speak it into our lives and circumstances it has the power to do that which it was sent to do!
I hope this encourages you, to testify of the works of God, to speak life into situations, to change your circumstances by your praise..
I am also taking hold of this principle and learning daily to watch over my words.
Much Love ❤️
