God removed darkness by the words he spoke. We are created in the image and likeness of God.
Genesis 1:3 says, And God said let there be light, and there was light.
We should imitate God. Ephesians 5 says Be imitators of God and walk in love. Faith works by love.
Mark 11:25 says when you stand praying for forgiveness. Unforgiveness can block prayers from being answered.
If anyone has a problem with forgiving a person, you can confess, ” I am forgiving,” or say, ” Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
When you keep saying something over and over, it gets down in your heart then you start to believe it.
Salvation is the same way. Romans 10:9-10 New King James Version says 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
Notice that the first thing is to confess with your mouth and then believe in your heart.
If you are not saved or do not have the assurance of your salvation, there is no time like the present to start. To receive the things of God, you must accept him as the Lord and Savior of your life.
If you are having a hard time with your faith, start speaking the word of God continually. It will take root in your heart.
Mark 11:23-24 King James Version says 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them
Notice the word saith, which means it is a daily thing.
Muhammad Ali kept saying, “I am the greatest.” He became the greatest because he spoke it into existence.
What we confess, we possess.
Instead of saying “I am old,” replace it with “my youth is renewed like the eagles.” Instead of saying “I am broke,” replace it with “God supplies my needs.” Instead of saying, “I am sick,” replace it with “I am healed with the stripes of Jesus.” Instead of saying, ” I can’t break this addiction” (whatever it may be), replace it with “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” during it.
Even though the facts say different, speak the word of God, which is the truth. Romans 3:4 Easy Read Version says, even if everyone else is a liar, God will always do what he says.
Ask God to put a check on your spirit each time you say the wrong thing. Speak crop failure to it and start at it again. Remember, correction brings perfection.
You can tackle your shackle with your words.
Bound by something you cannot shake? Speak words of life for the chains to break!
Prayer: I thank you, Heavenly Father, for giving me a tongue to speak of your goodness. I can break any chains in my life with the word of God. The word of God is sharper and more powerful than any two-edged sword, and it can cut up any negative roots in my life. I repent for living in chains when Jesus set me free from bondage. My tongue guides my life like the Rutter guides a ship. Who the Son sets free, is free indeed? In Jesus’ name! Amen.
