Are we destroying ourselves with our words? Some of us are. The Lord has really been dealing with me lately about how I talk, how I use my words. I bought this little book years ago written by Charles Capps, and not only did I buy myself one, but I bought my husband one, and then through the years I have probably bought 20 or more and given away as gifts to people who I felt needed to read this. People who I felt like they were not using their words to their advantage. Well, it turns out here lately, I have not been using my words to my advantage but to my disadvantage. I want to give you a glimpse of a truth that is in one little part of this book that I believe will set some people free today. I know it did me.

You Can Have What You Say.. (just a note..same goes with health or any other area of your life, this one just happens to be in the finance part of the book, but it is also in the part over your health, get the book you won't be sorry)
Most Christians who are defeated in their finances are defeated because they believe and confess the wrong things. They have spoken the words of the enemy, and those words hold them in bondage. Jesus said in Matthew 17:20..."for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove: and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
And in Mark 11:23, "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."
In these passages of Scripture, Jesus tells us that what we believe and speak affects the natural world, including our finances. God has given us His Word so that we can understand these scriptural laws that govern the universe. There are spiritual laws just as there are natural laws, such as gravity and the law of lift. When you work with these laws, they work for you. When you work against God's spiritual laws, they work against you.
When you speak negatively about your financial situation, you have what you say and believe.
Here is a very important spiritual law; You can have what you say.
With your words, you can choose life or death, poverty or riches, sickness or health. you may tithe (give 10 percent to the church), work hard, and pray for prosperity every day, but if your words are negative and contrary to God's Word, you could stay mired in debt, struggling to make ends meet.
Words are powerful, but God's Word is full of creative power. When you agree with what God has said about you and speak His Word, your circumstances will begin to change and line up with His will for your life.
God's Will Is For You To Prosper
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth..3 John 2...
That is just a little taste of what this book has to offer us in helping us to choose our words wisely. Helping us to see where we miss the mark because of what we are confessing with our mouths. You do not want to miss out on all this little book has to offer. It may be a small book but it has an enormous impact on people's lives. The scriptures are listed in the book so that you can match it up with God's Word.
We believe that when we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord that we are saved. Why do we have a hard time believing the rest of His Word? His Word tells us in Mark 11:23 that we will have what we say and believe. While the best part of His Word is that we are loved and we can have eternal life with Him though Jesus, there is sooooo much more that we can have now here on this earth while we are waiting for His return. He does not want us struggling to get by or living in poor health while we are waiting on Him to come again. His Word says He came to give us life and to give it more abundantly. He wants us to enjoy our lives.
We find it easy to use the devils words against ourselves and repeat and believe the bad reports. Why can't we believe God's Words over ouselves instead. Next time you get ready to repeat something the devil has told you (that would be anything that is not good) instead stop and use God's Words and believe and say what He says about your situation.
Now can you see why it is so important to STAY IN THE WORD? You need to know what God says, and quit listening to the devil. I encourage you to go out and get this book and use it as a starting place to turn your words around. Use it as a reference as where to look in God's Word to find out what He says you can have, who He says you are, and how He says to use your words. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
