Disobedience kept Israel from advancing into their promised land. Another big barrier to claiming their inheritance was the words that came out of their mouths. During the coming days we are going to deal with one of the most powerful forces in the world, one that determines the entire course of your life:
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge it shall eat the fruit of it (for death or life). (Proverbs 18:21, AMP)
Your words determine your destiny! You are either speaking forth... -Blessing or cursing.
-Power or weakness. -Faith or unbelief. -Victory or defeat. -Abundance or lack. -Life or death. -Words that will advance or hinder your destiny.
If you continually speak negative words of defeat and discouragement, you are setting the course of your life to live in defeat and discouragement. If you constantly talk about your problems, the words coming out of your mouth will hinder you from taking possession of God’s promises and fulfilling your divine destiny.
If you take control of your tongue, however, and fill your mouth with the Word of God and speak it forth by faith, you will be setting the course of your life to live in victory. By your verbal confession, you will be taking ownership of God’s promises!
God wants to bring you into a new dimension of spiritual authority where your words, spoken with power and invested in the promises of God, will enable you to confront and conquer every stronghold of the enemy. Before you can enter this powerful realm of spiritual authority, however, you must gain control of your tongue.
It was negative words that prevented Israel from embracing their destiny and led them to rebel against God. What words will come out of your mouth today? Will you speak words of death to your destiny, or will you speak words of life?
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
