Topic: If you believe, Speak [January 1, 2017]
Remember, having daily victories is a function of your faith. And faith is expressed through perspective, thoughts and words. So, it begins with what you see or how you view life in accordance with scriptures. And then the process continues, because what you see you think and what you think you will naturally say.
“…For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matt 12:34). Faith always speaks! Whatever you cannot say is what you do not truly believe. In 2 Corinthians 4:13 Apostle Paul said, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.” What you say is the proof of your faith. And Mark 11:23 assures you that you shall have whatever you say.
When Moses sent 12 spices to the Promised Land, they returned and 10 of them said, “We be not able to take the land.” But two of them said, “Let us go up at once for we be well able to take the land. Our God will give them into our hand.” They all saw the same things in the Promised Land; the fruits, the milk and the giants. But because of different perspectives, they were saying different things and God said to Moses, “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you” (Numbers 14:28). So, God does to you according to what you say in His ears. Whatever God hears you say is what His hand will perform for you. God’s hand will never perform for you greater things than what you are saying into His ears.
There are many things that happen to you and you are either blaming God or blaming the devil, but the truth is, it was your choice. You chose it by your speech.
The 12 spies went to the same place but while 10 were looking at the circumstances, the other two were looking at the possibilities. If all you can see around you is circumstances, you will continue to describe the circumstances, until it becomes inscribed on your mind and begin to manifest in your life. Beware! What you describe will soon be inscribed on your mind. Whatever is inscribed on your mind will soon find expression through your mouth. And when you say, it becomes established for you.
The 10 spies saw themselves as grasshoppers beside the giants and so they became intimidated. You can’t be looking at your opposition and not end up intimidated. The only way to escape intimidation is to see your God who is greater than your opposition. And then open your mouth wide to declare what your God will do for you. As you make your boast in the Lord, He will boost you till you overtake your oppositions.
