Our miracle is at hand right underneath our nose. It is the mouth we must watch out for.
Romans 10:8-10 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word [the message, the basis] of faith which we preach—9 because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].”
First, you must speak it for it to get into your heart, and you can see the results.
The key is to continue to say it until it becomes natural; you can reach out and obtain it.
Hebrews 10:23 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
We must be consistent with what we say, even if it’s not visible. We do not need to know how; all we need to know is that we have it.
Job asked God to help him with his mouth:
Job 6:24 24 “Teach me, and I will be silent; explain to me how I have been wrong.
It is time for us to evaluate what we say as Job did. Then, correcting our speech and asking God for help brings us to victory.
Thoughts are a major to keep under control. What you dwell on the most is what you will speak about. Eventually, it will manifest, and it can take form. When evil thoughts come, we must talk about the word of God and face it head-on. The battlefield is in mind.
We must put our trust in God, not our own ability because we are flawed.
5 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his [strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.6 For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord.
We are blessed when our confidence is in God. I loved my dad’s saying when I was a young teen. He would say, “I don’t trust you; I trust the God in you that you will do the right thing.” It has stuck with me my whole life.
Let’s depend on God to help us with our speech by facing our thoughts head-on with the word of God. It is a daily process.
Watch your speech. Your miracle is within reach!
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for another day to walk by faith. I repent for saying the wrong things; I know my miracle is in my mouth. Like Job God, I ask you to teach me, and I will hold my tongue; show me where I have made a mistake. I thank you for the victory. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
