Use Your Mouth To Speak Life

Daily Devotional

Numbers 21:5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

What you choose to speak is what will come to you. If you speak life that is what will flow, but if you choose to speak death then that will be your portion. We see this being exemplified in Numbers 21:5 where the Children of Israel were very discouraged and out of their discouragement they spoke against God and unknowingly declared over their lives that they would die in the wilderness. The next thing that happened is that many of them died from a fiery serpent that God sent among them. They spoke death and death came upon them.

The Shummamite woman illustrated the complete opposite. Her son was dead but not once did she mention death. She refused to speak death because she had the wisdom to know that what she speaks repeatedly will become her reality. When Elisha’s servant met her and asked if her husband was well? If she was well? If her son was well? Her faith response was “it is well”. Undoubtedly the current reality was staring her in her face but she chose to respond by faith and say “it is well”.  She understood that if you speak your current reality, your current reality will always be your future.  What you say determines the future you create tomorrow. 

What are you saying that is contributing to things staying the way that they are. Refuse to allow yourself to speak anything negative about any area of your life. Rather, choose to speak the reality that you want to see. 

Life Application: Carefully consider your words and make deliberate attempts to only speak the reality that you want to see. 

Prayer: Dear Lord, I cancel every negative word I have spoken over my life and the life of my family in the name of Jesus. I speak life over my circumstances. I declare that I am above and not beneath, prosperous, in good health and strength. I speak life and not death in every aspect of my life right now in the name of Jesus, amen.
