There is power when we speak and there is death and life in the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Even in the darkest of circumstances when we speak the word it brings life to light our way.
The Psalmist declared that the word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. (Psalm 119:105) The word gives direction and even when we cannot see a way out of the darkest places, there is an answer in the word of God.
Trials and challenges will cause our minds to be bombarded with negative thinking. We learn to speak things that do not already exist as if they have already happened and watch our words manifest into reality.
We are what we believe and words spoken over us from as early as childhood often form our identity. Jesus died to give us a new identity and we can speak his words over ourselves and believe what he says about us.
As Believers and saints we have been called out of darkness into the marvellous light of God. (1 Peter 2:9) We do not have to continue to feel our way around through the darkness or become overwhelmed by the clouds of depression, fear, anxiety, guilt and worry. Our knowledge of the word of God brings life and when we speak the word over our circumstances it gives way to the light.
