Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21
Another version of that scripture states that those who love to talk reap the consequences of what they say. We’ve all heard of self fulfilling prophecy and in some instances we may say that we are simply being realistic or pragmatic. I believe the contrasting view is optimism and avoiding negativity. I don’t know about you but sitting around talking about sad stories and the sorry state of the world creates feelings of depression and doom.
There are spiritual laws that govern the universe including the laws of confession. You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways. Job 22: 28 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7
We arise each morning to command our day and our week and decree what will manifest. We use spiritual principles grounded in the word of God and we declare the promises in the word over our lives. We declare that although we feel weak that we are strong in Christ Jesus. We are rich because our father owns the wealth of the world. We are victorious because we place our trust and confidence in God and while we worship, God fights our battles. We are the righteousness of God, head and not the tail, above and not beneath. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus.
We use our words to declare not what we can see but by faith those things that we cannot see and watch them manifest. Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed. Romans 4:17
Speak life to whatever seems dead in your life. Use your words to decree and declare what must come into existence. Use your words to shape your life and destiny. “Son of man, can these bones live?”Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Ezekiel 37:3-4
