Proverbs 13:2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
A fictional story is told about a woman who was believing God for her daily provision and she prayed audibly about it. An atheist was walking by and heard her prayers and declarations and decided to play a trick on her. The woman got up from her knees and declared that she would receive what she prayed about. The atheist went to the store and bought a number of food items and took them to the woman. He knocked on her door and left them on the step. The woman opened the door and saw the grocery items and started praising Jesus. The atheist came out of hiding and told her that it was him and not God who provided for her. She said something so profound, she told him that he was merely the vessel God used to answer her prayers. She declared what she wanted and she received exactly what she wanted.
Success begins in your mouth; what you say repeatedly will become your reality. For those who are seeking success, what often happens is that they start out believing that the dream or the promise will become a reality, but then comes the challenges and those beliefs quickly fade. How do you counter that? Romans 10:17 gives us the clue, It says “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”It is imperative that we walk in faith especially as it relates to what the Lord has spoken to us in various forms. The practical application of the scripture is to repeatedly rehearse the attainment of the dream or promise in your own ears using “I will” statements or simply thanking God in advance. It is advisable that you do that 2 to 3 times per day and you will realize soon that you are not fazed by the challenges you face. In the midst of obstacles, you will still be seen taking action towards the fulfillment of your goal. It is for this reason that the scripture says in Proverbs 13:2 a man will eat good by the fruit of his mouth. By using your mouth to speak success, it is only a matter of time that what you have spoken will become your reality.
Life Application: Use “I will” or “With God” statements to declare the accomplishment of your goal at least 2 times daily.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I declare with my mouth that I am blessed and highly favoured. I declare that I will walk in your abundance in every aspect of my time. In Jesus name, amen.
