Say What You Want To See

Daily Devotional

Proverbs 13:2: A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth:

What you become is not determined by what people say, but by what you say. Change your language and say what you want to see. 

It was said of the apostles that they were unlearnt, nevertheless Acts 4:33 recorded the great power that defined their ministry.  Some of those in the church in Corinth said that Paul was “beside himself” or mad, but today he is remembered for writing most of the books in the New Testament. Saul told David in 1 Samuel 17:33 “thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth.” In short Saul was telling David you cannot win against Goliath. David’s response was in the same way that I killed a lion and bear, I will do likewise to him. What David said was what happened.

The future you create starts in your mouth. That is the principle taught in Proverbs 13:2 when it says a man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth. It is possible for you to hear what other people say about you so often that you start saying the same thing about yourself and then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The alternative approach, like that of David, is to say what you want to see and then do not stop until you do it. 

Life Application: Practice saying repeatedly what you want to see.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I declare that I am blessed and highly favoured. I declare that I am well in every aspect of my life. I am healed. I am prosperous. I am an overcomer. I cancel and nullify every negative word I have spoken over myself right now, In the name of Jesus, amen.
