"Believe What You Speak"

Having daily victories starts with believing what you speak, which is a function of your faith. If your faith is not full of God’s assurance and confidence it’s impossible to see your words come to life.

Every time I meditate on the remembered Word of God, (because I remember everything He said), it brings back to my recollection that there’s a fixed blessing prepared for my every need. It’s really not hard to see faith being expressed through perspective when your thoughts and words “speak life and not death”.

Believing begins with what you ‘see’ or how you view life in accordance with scriptures. And then the process continues because what you see, you then think and what you think you will naturally say. “…For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matt 12:34). No matter the trial or circumstance, speak faith every time you speak….Faith always speaks! Whatever you cannot say is what you do not truly believe.

What you say is the proof of your faith. In 2 Corinthians 4:13 the Apostle Paul said, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.”

The members of my church are reminded of what Mark 11:23 says -- “you shall have whatever you say”. But before you can see the promises of God, you must “speak and sing” the praises of His name. God does unto you according to what you say in His ears, so what you speak is what you get. Whatever God hears you say is what His hand will perform for you. God’s hand will never perform for you greater things than what you are saying into His ears.

There are many things that have happened to you and you are either blaming God or blaming the devil. But the truth is it was your choice. You chose it by your speech. Believe that what you speak will happen, whether it’s good or bad. So be careful of the things you say, especially about yourself and other people!
