"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." (Proverbs 18:21 KJV)
You have far more influence on your destiny than you may realize. whether you live or die, succeed or fail, are rich or poor, weak or strong, great or small; it’s a lot more dependent on you than on God. If you were waiting on God to do anything about your life, you might have been waiting in vain, because He already did all that’s required for you to have the best life. The Bible says the works were finished from the foundation of the world (Hebrews 4:3 NKJV). All you have to do now is enjoy everything that the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ provided for you. 2 Peter 1:3 says, "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,….” You’ve been given everything you require to live triumphantly, happily and fulfilled in life. But your response is the key. Every time you speak, you shape your life and future to either align with God’s divine provisions and destiny for you or to be at variance with it. Where you are today - your current state and estate - are the result of what you said yesterday. Thus, the next five or ten years will produce for you the harvest of your current words. Words are powerful and important, they create or destroy. You determine how you want your life to be, inline or at variance with the Word. When you face challenges, keep your confidence in the Lord and get radical with your affirmation of the Word. As you speak, the Spirit will cause things to happen in line with your words; He needs your words. Every now and then, declare, “I’m healthy and strong because I have the life of God in me!” Don’t wait for symptoms to show up in your body to make such declarations. Talk that way now, and it’ll keep sickness away from you. It’s up to you to create your triumphant life and blessed future with the word of God on your lips.
CONFESSION "The Word of God is my life and sustenance and has made me fruitful in every good work. I live in divine health, supernatural abundance, and in continual victory and prosperity. The light of God's Word illuminates my path, and all things are working together for my good, in Jesus' Name. Amen."
