(Watch The Words You Accept Into Your Life)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “You are snared by the words of your mouth; you are taken by the
words of your mouth.”
Change, whether positive or negative, results from the words you pay attention to and the thoughts that are stirred up in your heart. The Lord Jesus always taught His disciples to hear and think right.
In Mark 4:24, He said, “…Take heed what you hear….” Then in Luke 8:18, He said, “Therefore take heed how you hear….” How you hear is as important as what you hear, because how you hear often determines your response and attitude as well as your ability to appropriate the power of the words that come to you.
Words make or mar. Our lives are influenced by words; the atmosphere in your home depends on the words that are spoken in it. Your relationships are built on words.
Our lives are so dependent on words that not only do they affect our attitudes, but they also affect our health and living conditions. Whether or not you’re living in faith or fear is a function of what you hear, for faith comes by hearing (God’s Word: positive information), while fears come through negative information.
Many today have become faint-hearted from listening to media reports on the dwindling state of the world’s economy.
However, there’s one who never changes, and that’s the Almighty God; His Word is the same—yesterday, today, and forever. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away” (Matthew 24:35).
He’s given us His Word as the veritable agent to change and transform us from glory to glory: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Go Deeper: Mark 11:23; Matthew 12:37
Speak: I declare that there’s prosperity, progress, joy and increase in my life and in that of my loved ones. Through the power and influence of God’s Word in my life, victory, promotion, and
success are my hallmarks, in the Name of Jesus! Amen.
