God has been dealing with me this week about things being held up by the words that I have spoken. “When I get paid I can do such and such.” “Next year is the year for me.” The word of God says now is the time. Not tomorrow, not next year, not next week, but now is the time. God puts a check in my spirit just like I asked Him to, each time I say something that is not of faith. Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. I corrected myself quickly. Instead of saying I am going to have my own business, I am saying I am an entrepreneur. Instead of saying 2019 is the year for me, I am saying this year is the year for me and my situation can change at any moment. Instead of saying my bank account is low, I am saying because I give my bank account is overflowing. “Instead saying I am broke, I am saying my needs are met because God provides for me and I am blessed to be a blessing to others. Everything we need God has already predestined before the foundation of the world. When God sent His son Jesus to die for our sins, He said “it is finished.” That statement alone tells me everything I need, is already done. Abraham said”I Am the father of many nations, before it happened. Even Jesus said “I am the way, I am the Bread of Life, I am the Good Shepherd, I am the Truth, I am the Light, and we should follow His example. Muhammad Ali,the famous boxer, said “I am the greatest,” and he was winning titles. Speak what you want in present tense not future or past tense. Don’t cause a delay, by what you say.
