We’ve all heard the saying, ‘What goes in, must come out.’ Well, that’s a no brainer, right? The things you eat will make it’s journey through you, retrieving the good, before what’s not useful exits from you. Or so you think! Some of what you eat contains things that are not good for you, like pesticides that remain in various foods depending on the soil it’s grown in. Those things eventually wreck havoc on every part of your body, causing sickness and diseases. We always try to consume organic foods, but in the event we’re not sure, we ask God to take out anything bad and bless it to the good of our bodies.
When God is trying to show me something. He always takes the ’roundabout’ to reinforce the treasure He has for me and I totally love it! So as I’m thinking about food, something we all have on our mind, especially during the holidays, I hear the Lord ask, “What is the purpose of My Words? They are always full of purpose, on assignment the moment I speak them out. Do your words hold purpose?”
Proverbs 18:21 says, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat it’s fruit.”
Wait, how can there be fruit in a word? Well now, God said (that’s words), “Let there be light.” What happened? There was light. He sent a word (seed) and called it light which produced light. Remember Psalm 107:20, “He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from destruction.” Everything God speaks is a seed with a harvest attached to it. He made us in His image and likeness and expects us to do the same.
Proverbs 4:20-22; “My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body.”
My brothers and sisters in Christ, do not think that you can damn everything and everyone with your words and expect different results. If you are speaking negatively over your body, expect negative results. If you’re speaking the problem constantly, don’t expect it to change. It will only grow in magnitude until you change what you say.
I know what you’re thinking, ‘That’s just positive thinking!’ That’s right, I’m positive you will get whatever you’re saying because like Gods words, yours have value and are on assignment the moment you speak them out. And don’t think that what you say in secret won’t have the same results!
Father, I repent of words spoken in anger, in fear and in worry. I repent of curses, seeds sown that have become a garden of weeds, choking the life out of the few good plants growing. Help me to consistently speak what You tell me to and to not deviate from that course set before me. Put a watch guard on my mouth that I may refrain from speaking evil. I thank you for crop failure! Your grace is enough to give me a new start. I will consistently agree with Your word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
