It Shall Be Established ~ {Day 11}

Welcome to Day 11 In A 31 Day Series

31 Days To Becoming His Pearl

One of the things that I learned early on in my faith walk was to speak life and speak His word over my life and over my circumstances.

I do my best to try and remember this powerful truth daily. We all make mistakes and fall short in this area..I have to remind myself hourly some days.

One way many people remember this scripture from Job 22:28 is to remind yourself in this way....

I just placed an order.

Whatever you just spoke. Whatever you just decided to decree and declare into the atmosphere...

whether it be true or a joke or out of a moment of frustration...

You just placed an order.

Our words are so powerful that God created the world and everything in it using words.

He spoke things into existence and we are created in His image. 

He has given us that same tool.

"Decree a thing and it shall be established." Job 22:28

"Life and death are in the power of the tongue."  Proverbs 18: 20-21

Start speaking to your circumstances and decree and declare over your life His word.

Command your circumstances to line up with biblical truths.

You have that authority.

Speak God's word.

Speak truth.

Speak life.

Try making a declaration about the way you want things to be.

Try praying and giving thanks for things and circumstances by faith.

The only thing that is going to happen when we talk about our unfortunate circumstances and situations is simply more of the same.

We just place the same order over and over again.

Sometimes we may need to break free from the old words that we have spoken about ourselves and also the negative words that other people may have spoken about us or our circumstances too.

I will share more on this in another post but this holds true for those who make a declaration about their fears as well.

Never, ever decree and declare your fears.

God's word tells us over and over again DO NOT FEAR or DO NOT BE AFRAID.

His word also tells us in Job 3:25 " For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me."

Your words are super powerful.

I've met many people over the years who are still trying to do life operating out of negative words that others have spoken over them a decade ago.

Break free from those words.

You are not the sum total of what everyone else declares that you are.

If people are not declaring the word of God over your life- if they are not speaking truth- move on.

Every morning when I wake up I pray this as part of my daily prayer.

I break the power of any negative or ill intentioned words spoken over me or about me, my husband and our six children in Jesus' name. They will not prosper. I thank you God that NO WEAPON formed against me, my husband or our six children will prosper and that EVERY tongue that rises up against us in judgement, you shall condemn in Jesus' name. 

Isaiah 54:17 says this:

"No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you
in judgement You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me, says the Lord."

Speak God's word. Speak life. Speak His truth and saturate your life with it.

For a little more encouragement today, you can find two other posts I've written on this subject here.
