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, next year, or next week, but now is the time. God checks 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 of 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 won titles. Speak what you want in the present tense, not the future or past tense. Do not cause a delay with what you say.
Prayer: God, I thank you for breathing life into me and creating me for a purpose. I am made in your image and likeness. I can create things with my words. I repent for delaying the process with the words I have spoken. I choose to live in the present. Now is the time; now is the day of salvation. I thank you, God. You are the great I am. I speak it with life application knowing that it is already done. In Jesus’ name! Amen!
