Friday morning after I had my time of prayer, I asked the Lord if he wanted to say anything specific to me. This is what I heard Him speak; “Watch your words. Judge every thought against my Word, if it’s not of me, cast it down. It’s crucial that you hear me and do as I say. If it doesn’t line up with my Word, don’t speak it out of your mouth.”
This morning as I was meditating on that, I heard Jesus’ in Mark 11:22-24; So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
I realized something, how many times have we believed bad things would happen to us and because we believed it and didn’t doubt, they came to pass? How many times have we allowed fear to be the foundation of our words, the motivation of our thoughts? We fear something is wrong, we speak our fears, we go to the doctor and have our fears confirmed then we pronounce the diagnosis and tell it to everyone we meet. Then we go to church and ask for prayer to get rid of the thing we feared, spoke and received. Do you see the foolishness in all of that? We even blame God or say that ‘healing isn’t for everyone’ or ‘I tried that and it didn’t work’, when it was clearly not God nor His will, it was simply what we chose to think on and speak out.
We need to be looking for what God’s Word says about the situation we face, have faith in God, stand on His promises and let His Word do it’s perfect work in us. Is anything too difficult for God? Is anything impossible with God? One drop of the blood of Jesus is enough to cover all sin, sickness and disease. Jesus died for that. Jesus ROSE for that. Anything else is heresy, a lie and need not come out of our mouth. What are we thinking on? What are we speaking out?
Psalm 19:14 is my prayer today; Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. May I think on your Word so that Your Word comes out of my mouth. You are my strength when I’m weak, you have redeemed me from the curse of sickness and disease. You’ve redeemed me from poverty and oppression. You’ve set me free from wrong mind sets and old fears. You came to bring life and not just life, but abundant life. My life is rich because of you, Lord. You cause me to daily walk in your ways because I set my thoughts on you. May my words be Your Words and may you be exalted in what I say and do today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
