What If….

Throughout Scripture we are told that what we say has an impact on our lives. Speak sickness and lack and chances are you will have sickness and lack. Speak blessings and health and they manifest. Whatever we dwell on, we speak. Whatever we speak, we seem to support by our actions. Our actions, in turn, create our world.
Proverbs 18:21 says the power of death and life are in the tongue. Proverbs 12:14 says that a man is filled with good things from the fruit of his lips. Mark 11:22-24 says to have faith in God; whatever we say and do not doubt but believe it will come to pass…will be done for us. Jesus tells us again in John 16:24 to ask and we will receive and our joy will be complete.
What if Scripture were true? What if we could shape our world with God’s words in our mouth? Would you be willing to give it a try? Lucyah and I have listened to the words that came out of mouth and wondered….Why did we say that? That’s not what we want AND that’s not what Scripture says.

We’ve actually heard ourselves say “We can’t afford that?” when Scripture tells us we are the children of God and He owns all the silver and gold and the only reason we have not is because we ask not! Deuteronomy 8:18 tells us that God has given us the power to get wealth. So the question is…Are we using the power (speaking God’s Word to begin with) to get what we say we want?
“My back is killing me” comes from our lips instead of “my God is healing me.” The Word of God tells us we are healed by His stripes. The same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead raises me right now from a bed of sickening symptoms.
So…let’s get physically and financially well. Let’s start speaking God’s Word and thanking Him for the positive results that are starting to take root. Whenever you get tempted to confess a negative circumstance, speak one of these instead:

I AM healed by His stripes. (1 Peter 2:24). As I live longer, I get wiser, healthier, younger and stronger!

I AM getting all my needs met by my Father and all my desires are satisfied with good things. (Philippians 4:19 & Psalm 103:5).

I AM exercising my authority over the enemy; nothing harms me. No weapon formed against me prospers! (Luke 10:19 & Isaiah 54:17)
