Your Words Control Your Life

The Bible teaches that words, especially ones you say, are important.

20 A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth, and from the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

21 "As for Me," says the Lord, "this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants' descendants," says the Lord, "from this time and forevermore."

What You Say Is What You Get
MARK 11:23 NKJ
23 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.

Jesus said that you will have whatever you say -- dependent on believing and not doubting. Think of that. What you say determines what you get in life. It did for the children of Israel. And the Bible says the things which happened to them are lessons for us.

28 "Say to them, `As I live,' says the Lord, `just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you:

2 you are snared by the words of your own mouth; you are taken by the words of your mouth.

Words can get you in trouble. And words can deliver you (Revelation 12:11; Romans 10:10; Ephesians 6:17; see below). Words control your destiny.

Faith Must Speak
20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

6 So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, `Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.

Faith must be released through words. All we receive from God must be received by faith (Romans 5:2; Galatians 3:14; Hebrews 6:12; Matthew 9:29). So, you will only receive God's blessing in line with the words you speak.

Hold Fast Your Confession
HEBREWS 3:1; 4:14 NKJ
1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

Your confession is what you say. You should persistently continue speaking in faith, agreeing with what God has said, regardless of circumstances. If it never seemed like it was not working, there would be no need to hold fast, or hang on, to a confession of faith.

Call For Things
17 (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children

Imitate God. Speak like He speaks. God can call those things which do not exist as though they did. So, it is okay for you to do it, too, based on the evidence of His Word.

Words Will Judge You
MATTHEW 12:36-37 NKJ
36 "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
37 "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

ROMANS 10:9-10 NKJ
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.

Words Bring Success
8 "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

1 PETER 3:10 NKJ
10 For "He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking guile;

Speaking and thinking in line with God's Word will cause you to prosper and succeed.

32 "Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.

11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Never confess defeat. Confessing Jesus as Lord of every situation brings glory to God.

Control Your Words
1 PETER 4:11 NIV
11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. . . .

When you speak what the Bible says, you are speaking the very words of God. Anything contrary to what the Bible says, should never be spoken by a Christian.

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

11 Do not speak evil of one another . . . .

2 to speak evil of no one . . . .

You are responsible for what you say. If you cannot say something good, the Bible is clear: keep quiet.

Words Are Spiritual Weapons
11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word in their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

What Jesus did for you is enough. He defeated the devil for you. However, you must enforce that defeat by speaking and standing in agreement with God. Only then will you see Jesus' victory manifest in your life.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

You must take it. Your spiritual weapon is speaking the Word of God. You must take the Word and speak it -- just like Jesus did.

Ha! And did you notice how many people read the post and therefore grow from it? (hopefully)
Lol maybe its a good thing as when you post something nobody can take issue with. :)
James 3:6 KJV
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that IT Defileth the whole body, AND Setteth On Fire The Course Of Nature: AND It Is Set On Fire From Hell.

COURSE = The Wheel Of Nature

Our Words that is ALL our words once given life to by Speaking them - Begin to go into action.

They either work for us or against us.

Scripture tells us in
2 Corinthians 10:4-5
4... For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to pulling down strong holds

5... Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Why is this such a big deal?

Because our enemy the devil is after our words and he does this through thoughts and feelings.

Why is he after our words?

1 Peter 5:8
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

What's he looking for? An open door, an opportunity or the right to get involved.

How does he get this?
By Speaking words. Putting into action the thoughts he has been sending you.

It does not take some huge drastic ordeal in order to give the devil a right that he should not have had.

Doubt, worry, fear, questioning if God will or heard you and so on. These are just a few areas that he uses.

Jesus said....Take No Thought....Saying
The way you give life to a thought is speaking it.

Last thing....
It does not matter if you believe this or not.
It's just the way it is and has always been and always will be.

Scripture says the devil is looking for some one he can get to........ so this means there are those who he can not get to and those are the ones who keep their words in line with God's word.

There is no such thing as....oh its just words, they don't mean a thing......that's a lie of our enemy the devil he has sown into people's thinking for generations.

Words Count
Just want to comment on doubt because its a common thing for people to experience when they havent actually encountered God.

But as christian believers we DO encounter God. Its just making this experience known, and putting it into words as our testimony that is vital.

I was teaching this bible class and one of the stories I was given to teach was about Thomas, who didnt believe until he had seen the Lord. He can be forgiven Jesus said, becasue he hadnt seen the risen Christ yet and everyone else at the time had.

But then Jesus said blessed are those who havent seen and believe. For every one of us we can no longer see or touch the risen Jesus like they did, I mean he just doesnt come round and enter our homes everyday and ask us to touch his hands and feet. Sometimes he does and if you privleiged to encounter him that is great. But he does appear in dreams and visions, through the Word, in answered prayer and the evidence of things NOT seen is our faith.

I think in revelation it says we are saved by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. So what is our testimony? If we do not have a testimony, how can we tell others about Jesus? Our words are important to Him too! We MUST testify of what Jesus has done in our lives. People cant see Him but they can Hear about Him.

Jesus never asked for pictures or paintings to be made of him and waxwork dummies to be made of him even though theres plenty of that, plus the shroud thst he was buried in and still got blood on it..the way He wanted others to have faith is by spreading His word cos its the truth. Tell the truth!
