Speak Well (2)
Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. - Proverbs 4:24
If you say it with your mouth, abundance shall manifest in your life. Many are waiting for the economy and government policy to change. Do not go by what you see, go by what HE says. God will supply your needs according to what he has and what He has is beyond a predictable salary. Do not have a mentality of just enough. Keep on dreaming and planning, God is taking you to a higher height. Great things will happen to you. God has a place of abundance for you, He is only limited by what you believe and if you believe abundance in your heart, you will say it with your mouth. For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
The same God that can give you a loaf of bread can give you a bakery. The same God that give you a pair of shoes can give you a shoe factory. Do not think just little. Just enough is not enough. God wants to give you more than enough. Be faithful in the wilderness and God will give you an overflow. There are many things money cannot buy; it cannot buy wisdom. A poor son is a bad reflection of the father, for poverty and holiness are not the same; therefore, give God permission to bless you. Jesus connected every believer with Abrahamic blessing as stated in third Galatians (Galatians. 3:13-14). We are not looking for blessing, we are blessed already. But you must activate it with your mouth; for until it is believed and spoken out it does not work. Somebody may ask what about ancestral curses? Look at your spiritual family that is bigger than the curse in your physical family. Christ died on the cross that the blessing of Abraham might be our redemptive right. Christ became a connection to the blessing of Abraham but our access to it is faith. No faith, no access. Faith is what receives what grace has made available so feed your faith, to starve your doubt.
Have time for the truth of God's word, honour your words. Do not just say what you will not do. With no steering no matter how good the engine is or the petrol, a car will not move. Your tongue is the steering wheel for your life. Do not speak for speaking sake honour your word. Thank God for the Holy Ghost and a prayer life, but without the steering of the tongue, you may not go far; so be careful what your mouth is saying. Speak to yourself; hear yourself, do inner communication.
God talked to himself when he wanted to make man. Talk to yourself to create your success. Whatever you talk about will multiply and enlarge. Ten spies talked about impossibility and they became victims so talk good (Numbers 14:3-4). Say what God wants to hear. what you are saying God is hearing; talk expectation, not experience (Numbers 13:29). Stop meditating on your feeling of rejection, nurture your possibility of success and it shall be well with you. Even to pray well, you must know the word of God. The word of God is the will of God.
Prayer: As long as my mouth is not shut, any door shut by the enemy is temporal. In the name of Jesus, I open my mouth in prayer that the counsel of the wicked shall not materialize in my life. I confess that I am redeemed from the curse of the law; I confess that I live under the new covenant which promises prosperity and good health in the name of Jesus.
