This one really steps on my toes. How many times have you said something, then wished you could take it back? That is what happens when we are too quick to speak. Now most of you are probably thinking that I am talking about saying something that might would hurt someone's feelings. Well, that is true too. But no, I am talking about mostly speaking over yourself.
This lesson has to do with the spoken word of God. We see in Hebrews where it tells us the world was framed by God's word. When studied out, this verse is referring to the Rhema Word, or the spoken word. In other words God spoke and it was. When we read in Genesis, God says, let there be light, and there it is. Let there be land and there it is. That is the rhema word, the spoken word of God. The bible is the logos word. The written word of God. But when we speak out the logos word with faith, it becomes the rhema word the spoken word of God. AMEN!
Hebrews 11 v 3.....By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.....
Gen. 1 v 3....Then God said, "Let there be light", and there was light.......
When we speak something with faith, meaning we believe what we are saying, then we are speaking that into our lives or the lives of others. When we say everyday, I am so tired, I can hardly put one foot in front of the other, then we will be tired everyday, and we will hardly be able to walk. When we say, everyday this job is driving me crazy, or this job is wearing me out, then that job is going to drive you crazy or wear you out.
When we speak we must think about what we are saying, and instead of confessing bad, negative words over our lives, we must start confessing good words, calling those things that are not as if they were.
Don't keep telling yourself you do not know how you are going to get by, that you do not have enough money to pay your bills, because then you will never have enough money to pay your bills. Start confessing that you have more than enough, that you have the riches and glory of Christ Jesus, that you are of royalty, you are the heir to a throne higher than any other. You will always have enough and then some so that you may give back to those who have not. AMEN!
Don't worry about what others are saying or thinking about you when you confess these things that are not yet, because they will be, when you keep confessing the word of God with faith believing that what you say is true. The word tells us that people will think us (children of God) as a peculiar people. Be proud to be a peculiar person in God. AMEN!
If you need healing in your body, speak it out as though you are already healed. Because in fact the healing is already there, Jesus has already taken care of that. You just have to speak it out and believe that what you say is true. You have facts and you have the TRUTH, the word of God is TRUTH. Sometimes it may go against your facts, but God's word is TRUTH. So you can take a stand and believe your facts or you can take a stand and believe God's TRUTH. AMEN!
So here is the TRUTH, God created the heavens and the earth by speaking them into existence. God created man in His image, (you did not come from an ape) and God spoke those things that were not as if they already were and then they were. You have the same power in your words. Jesus gave you the same power as He himself has, when He left you with His Holy Spirit dwelling within each of us. When you accepted Him as your personal savior, you were given then His Holy Spirit, His dunamis power. (dunamis meaning dynamite power) AMEN!
Prov 18 v 21....Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit....
1 Pet 2 v 1.......Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy and all evil speaking.....
Some people read this scripture and think that evil speaking means cursing or talking ugly. What evil speaking is, is when you are speaking evil into your life or the lives of others. The cursing you are doing here is saying negative things about yourself or a loved one. When you speak sickness, disease, poverty, these are the evil things this scripture is talking about. When you speak things like, so and so has cancer, or so and so is going down quick, or these kids will never amount to anything, those are forms of evil speaking. God says put it away from you, in other words do not say or repeat these things.
Everytime you say something like that you are confessing that and coming into agreement with the enemy on that lie. That is why the WORD tells us guard our hearts and to watch our words. Because you are opening up your heart to the enemy who will attack you with your words. When you speak evil things you are giving him power.
Why not speak God's WORD over yourself instead, He has a greater power than the enemy will ever have. When you speak and confess His WORD and believe it you will not be defeated. AMEN!
You have more power than you could ever imagine in your spoken words. Be careful with your words. Speak them in faith knowing that God's word is truth, but also put a watch over your mouth that you do not speak the wrong things into your life. If you will renew your mind with the word of God, you will change the way you speak. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
