I think this is a topic that so many of us have heard or read about before. Yet I still think that it can never be emphasized enough. But after attending a prayer convention at church yesterday and had the pastor preach I thought I could share what I learnt. I have been taught on this topic again and again and got even more revelations, yeah let us just call them that.
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruits of his mouth, and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled ..Proverbs 18:2o KJV
Nomatter how bad the situation is never speak negatively. If the situation seems dead how about we speak life to it. Let me use an analogy of crops. When one is speaking or confessing be it good or bad it’s the same as sowing a seed. So remember you reap what you sow. So say you have been praying for that breakthrough , that miracle in whatever area of your life.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue ;and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof..Proverbs 18:21 KJV
The prayer was you confessing and saying to the man uphigh thank you I believe you and know you are so going to do this for me. The moment you then start confessing doubt and saying all the negative things regarding your prayer request then it’s a downhill ride. It is the same as instead of weeding and nurturing your crops by watering them ,applying fertiliser and all you just let them be unattended. So as you wake up each day what do you say to yourself. What harvest are you expecting from the type of seed you are sowing.
For he that will love life, and see good let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.. I Peter 3:10 KJV
Of all the statements you utter in a day how much is positive and how much is to keep you going. Words have the power to bless or curse, to heal or destroy. They bring hope or defeat and they will last a life time.Remember this: every word you speak will boomerang back to you. In the case of Zechariah and Elizabeth to think God had to shut the mouth of Zechariah so as to fulfilll his plan.
If Zechariah wasn’t made dumb he probably would have said all the negative things and would have even instilled disbelief in Elizabeth. Note that his mouth is only opened after God’s plan had come to pass. Abram was later named Abraham meaning Father of many nations. As the people around him called him by his new name they heped pave way for the fulfillment of God’s promise. Of him being a father of many nations.
So whatever it is that you confess with your mouth bare in mind you are speaking to your destiny. It is actually in the power of your tongue.
As how God simply said ”let there be light ” , you can also speak things into existence.
