Speak Life! – 2
“Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21.
Keep declaring, keep believing, and keep expecting that your season of harvest you have labored for will soon come. And it shall come in Jesus name. (Amen). Brandi L. Bates said, “Like caterpillars, our metamorphosis begins with what comes from our mouth. Caterpillars spin silk cocoons from the mouth. We speak life or death, success, or failure. All transformation starts with what comes from our mouth.”
Speak life through the word of God over yourself, you will see healing power moving in your mind, bodies, and soul in a way that is so powerful. Proverbs 16:24 says, “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” That is why the word of God is life to those who find them and healing to one’s entire body (proverb 4:22 paraphrase).
Jeremiah was a predestined prophet of God. God sent His word to him to reveal his true identity and purpose (Jeremiah 1:5), but Jeremiah felt too young for such mandate, and then he began to counter God’s word with negative words. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak: for I [am] a child. Jeremiah 1:6. Immediately, God heard his negative words; He had to put His hand in his mouth just to stop him from speaking more negative words.
Any word that is not in alignment with the Word of God is not appropriate for our lives. The words of our mouth must be alive. Sometimes all we need to get a problem solved is to speak to it. If the word of God formed the whole world, then a simple problem in our life can be controlled by the words of God in our mouth. After God restrained Jeremiah from speaking negative words, the right words became the good seed, he sowed, and then the true identity that God has predestined for him began to manifest.
If we must move forward and eat good fruit, we have to sow the right seed via our words today. When you wake up, declare the good things you want to see in your future and never stop saying it till it happens. The fact that you don’t see anything immediately you say it doesn’t mean it wasn’t heard, the seed just needs time for its fruit to manifest. So keep saying it, don’t stop saying (sowing) it. Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
