Morning Devotion: Speak life! Align your words with God in 2017 (all the time). Activation and prayer at the end.
Words, I love them. Not because I love to talk or write. I love words because they are seeds. Say what? Words are not just words. God spoke (used words) and creation began. God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
When you and I speak, we are emitting frequencies into the airwaves. We are, for visualization purposes, depositing tiny little seeds and targets. These seeds can produce an abundant harvest. The power of life and death is in our tongue as scripture says.
I am not saying if you profess, “I am a tree,” everyday you are going to become a tree. I am saying what you and I say is either inviting hell or heaven to invade. Hence verbal abuse can be sometimes more damaging than physical abuse. Sticks and stones may break your bones and words dear hearts will still hurt you.
Negative words and labels plant seeds, some are curses that invite demons. If you do not believe in demons, come along for a street ministry outreach with me sometimes. We encounter lots of demonized people.
I see the impact of words in deep inner healing/deliverance sessions. Parents who called their children dumb, no good, said things like, “I wish you were never born. I wish you were a different personality or gender. I can not stand you,” invited demonic harassment in their children’s lives. Those children, many of them grow up with seeds of rejection. They have a target on them to be rejected. In deliverance we deal with the root causes (seeds/open doors) so they can get free.
How are you talking to yourself? Would God say the same things? How are you talking about other people? What targets are you placing on them? What are you speaking over your destiny, future, circumstances?
I want you to speak life. Speak life even when it feels different, or weird. Agree with God. Both heaven and hell are looking for human agreement.
Spend some time with Holy Spirit…ask Him to reveal the words you have been using that are not in agreement with Him.
Lord I choose this year to align my thoughts and words with Yours. I confess You are always right and You speak life! You know the plans You have for me and they are good. I ask for forgiveness for every agreement with the enemy. I choose to believe You as an act of my faith. Help me to speak life.
Write Out Some Bible Based Declarations and Speak Them:
The Word of God is life. Speaking His word helps to align our mind with truth.
God is with me. He is good. His desire for my life is good.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made, God’s workmanship, created for His glory.
I am called in Christ to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.
God’s perfect love casts out fear. I can stand bold and courageous in His love!
Papa God thank You for being the Master Gardener. Please forgive us for planting seeds that do not yield good fruit. This year, help us to sow seeds of life. Uproot what is not of You. We cancel every negative word, negative vow, negative word curse we have spoken or others have spoken over us. We choose to bless and not curse. Align our thoughts with Your thoughts. Align our words with Your words. Help us to be sowers for Your Kingdom! In Jesus mighty name, amen.
