THOUGHTS FOR YOUR DAY.
Jul23MonJuly 23, 2012
When faith speaks it calls those things that be not as thought they were.
When faith speaks it is with confident expectaion that what is being spoken will come to pass.
When faith speaks it is with a focus on what has already been given to us by God.
When faith speaks it is with the belief that what is being declared will be accomplished.
Scriptures to consider :
2 Cor 2:14 ... (triumph refers to the cellabration of victory not the securing of it) Jesus already finished the work of redemption. He already won the war and in Him we are more than conquerors. Celebrate ... Ps 92:4 ... Give Him thanks for the Victory!
Isa 55:11 The words God speaks accomplish something ... the thing they are sent to do ... When He speaks he isn't simply communicating, He isn't just talking ... He sends his words ... He speaks with purpose ... knowing they will come to pass. Compare Mark 11:23 ... Jesus is telling us to have the same attitude about our words that God has about His. We are to believe that those things we say will come to pass ... We are to believe that the words that we speak accomplish what we send them to do. (Our words need to line up with His Word and Will for the best results)
He sends His words, He speaks with purpose ... we are to imitate Him ... we should speak with purpose (with His direction would be wise) ... Speaking with purpose will probably require that we speak less ... We will need to learn to be "swift to hear and slow to speak" but being deliberate, choosy and specific with our words will bring better results.
Our thoughts and words determine our future, if they are acceptable to the Lord our lives will be also.
