Biblical Christianity is about a word-based lifestyle and not a silent life. God built a voice-activated system into creation. You cannot have biblical Christianity without words. Everything in creation responds to words. Out of all the creation of God, man is the only creation that has the privilege to share in His authority to use words. God created man to be a speaking spirit – to rule by his words, dominate by his words, control by his words and operate by his words. The first line of attack the devil gets us is to get our words against us. Everybody is already operating by words, but most of the time, we are operating against ourselves.
Over the years, I have discovered that when people’s confession aligns with their action by talking right, they come up with the testimony of positive results. It is not that the devil has retired, rather they rightly connected to the law of words. It is a voice-activated universe.
Words give life to thoughts, “Therefore take no thought, saying” (Mat. 6:31). Your words take a thought – whether it’s a demon that is pretending to be a thought or the Holy Spirit; once you say it out, you give birth to that life, and you take it as your own. An unspoken thought will die unborn. You can beat the devil by keeping quiet. Don’t repeat negative thoughts. Don’t be a victim of the wrong use of words. Keep your mouth in the direction of a positive outcome. Never speak against your prayers or work. Once you change your mouth, your life changes in that direction.
PRAYER: I cast down wrong imaginations and thoughts that can trigger negative speaking in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit, help me to keep my mouth in the direction of success.
