I will give them a single purpose and put a new spirit in them. I will remove their stubborn hearts and give them obedient hearts. Ezekiel 11:19 GW
I’ve been observing a whole lot of people who seem to have a whole lot of time on their hands to talk about other people. They voice their observations as if reinforcing what they see through the words they speak.
“Things are so bad and seem to be getting worse!” “So many hard-hearted people who refuse to hear the truth!” “Can you believe that happened?” “Did you hear?” “Did you see the news last night?”
The only way things will ever change is when we change what we see and say. It’s the nature of God to speak things into existence and we are His children. We shouldn’t be moved by what we see in the natural world, we should be moving the natural world by speaking the Word over it.
If what is coming out of your mouth doesn’t line up with what God has spoken, you’re being moved by the wrong things. Set your heart on things above, not below. Meditate on the Word of God and allow it to trump the situation you’re facing. Stop allowing your spirit to be overwhelmed by your flesh. God is bigger than that!
Instead of saying, “I fear for this generation!”, begin to say, “Thank You Father for putting a new spirit in them and exchanging their stubborn heart for obedient ones.” Nothing changes until you change how you see things!
Read Philippians 4:8-9 so that you know what you’re to think on. Change your thoughts and you’ll change your words. Nothing is impossible with God so stop limiting Him by the way you think because of what you’ve heard. Train your brain to think right! Train your mouth to speak right! Change your expectations and your results will be different.
