YOUR WORDS AND YOUR LIFE – Pastor Chris
Wednesday, August 29, 2018
Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth (Proverbs 6:2).
There’s a spiritual language for the Christian. That’s why, as a child of God, you ought to put the Word on your lips, because the supernatural life is based on your tongue. Your tongue rules your life. In Matthew 12:36-37, Jesus said, “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
Literally, this means a man will go to heaven or hell because of his words. Read the Apostle Paul’s submission about salvation in Romans 10:8-10: “… if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
The Apostle James likened the tongue to the rudder of a great ship, which the captain uses to direct the ship wherever he wants (James 3:4-5). Likewise, your life is the character of your words. If your words are wholesome, your life will be perfect, excellent, and full of glory. Proverbs 15:4 says, “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life….” Jesus taught that what you say, is what you get (Mark 11:23).
Watch what you say, for your confessions control your life. You can keep yourself in health, safety, prosperity, and victory with your words. Stir your life in the direction of God’s destiny for you with your faith-filled confessions. Always talk success and increase only.
1 Peter 3:10 says, “For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.” Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Create and sustain your glorious life with your words. You can be anything you want to be, have anything you want to have, and achieve anything you want to achieve—with your words.
My life is excellent and full of glory; I walk in the dominion of the Spirit. My journey in life is upward and forward only. I’m on the path of success, victory and everlasting prosperity; I’m walking in, and fulfilling God’s destiny for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
