Dont Shut Your Mouth
A mans belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Proverbs 18:20
If you truly desire the good life, you must refuse to close your mouth to situations around you. Dont join the company of those who say what will be, will be. If it will be, it depends on you. Dont shut your mouth, but rather speak as your Father spoke. In Mark 4, we are told that there was a time a storm broke out unannounced upon Jesus and His disciples. While the disciples were busy bailing out water from the boat, the Master was fast asleep. The Master was able to sleep even in the face of a storm because He was not on the same level with the disciples. When He woke up, He spoke to the storm and there was calm.
Right there, God is giving you a template, a pattern on how to approach situations. When you learn to speak to contrary situations in your life, they will have no choice than to bow. You must come to the point where you speak what you believe because your confession ultimately brings possession. I encourage you to begin to speak to your finances, business, marriage, health and ministry and you will begin to see changes.
Proverbs 18:21 says Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Joshua 1:8 says This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Child of God, I challenge you to internalize who you are, sit down and get scriptures that talk about your ability in Christ, meditate on them, understand and be convinced that you are in Christ and therefore you are His ambassador here on earth and walk in the privilege of your relationship with God. I declare to you today that you will win in every battle of life! You cannot fail in Jesus name.
