Jeremiah 1:12 NKJ “Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”
Thats the verse that was on my mind this morning. The lesson in this chapter was God teaching Jeremiah to speak what he saw in a vision. It’s also a prophetic call on the body of Christ to begin speaking what we see in revelation, not what we see with our physical eyes. Jesus even said in Mark 11:23 NLT, “I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty tired of the enemy running off with my stuff simply because I fail to allow the Word of God to be louder than the things I see around me. I used to be so careless with my words that I would just spew out anything. I was whining one day to the Lord about all the bad things that were happening to me and he very clearly and lovingly pointed out to me that he was only paying attention to my words. Nothing like having your life on rewind while the Lord replays what you’ve been saying. What a wakeup call!
Galatians 6:7 NKJ, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
We all have a garden of words. Some of us eat richly, some of us are malnourished. Don’t be surprised at what grows; you planted it, remember? Or perhaps you don’t pay close attention to what you say to even notice. Yes, the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. Satan tries what he can to deceive us into believing that it will never happen, we’ll never get our healing, never get our blessing, but if you resist him long enough, he MUST flee (James 4:7). You say, “How long? I’ve been doing it for years!” What do you see? Keep speaking it until it manifests. See it, say it, have it.
Philippians 4:6-7; Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Father, put a watch guard on my mouth that I may refrain from speaking my feelings! My sincere desire is to see like You see, say what You say and have what You promised. I now know that for me to possess the promise, I must see the promise. Give me eyes to see and a heart to obey. May Your praise continually be in my mouth. It’s for Your glory. In Jesus mighty name, Amen.
