Speak Victory Only
“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” –Ephesians 4:29, NKJV
Your words determine your destiny. Sound intense? It is! And it’s true. But, too often, we are careless with our words, thinking they really don’t make a difference.
Maybe you already know how important your words are in your life, but you struggle to keep from speaking negatively about frustrating circumstances. Today is the day to start choosing your words as if your life depends on it—because it does! What you say today is what you’ll have tomorrow.
If you are in a tough situation with your finances, and you’ve been speaking God’s Word over the problem, when an unexpected bill arrives or another seeming setback crops up, resist the temptation to speak anything contrary. Refuse to give place to the devil or entertain his thoughts. When you resist him, he will flee from you (James 4:7).
Answer every doubt immediately with the Word of God. That’s how you “[cast] down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5, NKJV).
