Brothers and Sisters in Christ, please understand that the words that are coming out of your mouth do matter. When you begin to speak words which declare that you do not have faith, doubt instantly arises to keep you in bondage. Be careful regarding what you speak and don’t be defeated by the words of your mouth.
Your words, what you speak can cause you to suffer a beat down. Proverbs 6:2, warns, “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth”. When you speak failure, failure will hold you in bondage; you will become defeated and imprisoned by the words of your own mouth.
Remember that you can never be defeated until you confess that you are defeated. Therefore, do not allow your words to curse your path to success, but strive to gain the mastery of what you speak. People often like to use the excuse that they only speak their mind, however, be assured that can only be good if you have the mind of Christ.
Having a Christ like mind enables you to make a bold, confident confession, imparting a faith filled courage which begins to take control of you. Give acknowledgement to your God inside mind, aware that greater is He in you than any force which comes against you.
God created everything with words. We must conclude, then, words are more powerful than any military force, or any political or religious system. Use words which will not defeat your purpose, but which acknowledge God’s power to make you overcome. Learn to use your words as your servants which pull you out of defeat and help you to win.
