I once unconsciously spoke showers of death over my life; every word like a raindrop keeping me drenched and cold.
I claimed negative feelings, thoughts, and fears that I never wanted to own as mine in the first place.
Even against the Lord’s true intentions I had accused and spoke words that cut short the flow to true freedom in Christ and the flow of faith that is able to receive abundance.
But then I began using my weapons, like scripture and revelations, that greatly unleashed power of the Spirit’s movement in my life. The Spirit gained the space to run joyfully.
My battles against descending thoughts and spiraling feelings were conquered, to be consistently made obedient to the truths of Christ (*2 Corinthians 10:5)
Through the understanding of the power of words, I’ve grasped freedom in an effective way…in a victorious way.
Life truly is in the power of what is spoken (**Proverbs 15:28, Proverbs 18:21), so I will only speak sun-rays of beauty over mine and others’ lives.
And if declaring the Words of life were effective enough for Jesus to cut off Satan’s advances in the wilderness (***Matthew 4:3-11), then such is a reliable tactic for me!
And what revelations are quietly spoken to me in my Lord’s presence, I will give voice to for building my faith and remaining free in my mind!
I will be conscious of my words always, In Jesus Name.
*We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One (2 Corinthians 10:5)
**The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking (Proverbs 15:28)
**What you say can mean life or death. Those who speak with care will be rewarded (Proverbs 18:21)
***The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down.” […] Jesus answered him, “It is also written, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test”.
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him (Matthew 4:3-11)
