TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORDS
The battlefield is in the mind, but the victory comes through your mouth! Speak life and see what the Lord will do!
One of the most important strategies God gives us for overcoming anything – even our own minds – is learning the discipline of speaking right words.
If you’re honest, you will come to the conclusion that you don’t know how to speak right words automatically. The impulse to speak is always carnal in nature and filthy in substance. Just like any other part of our walk, we have to be taught. If we are going to be taught by the Lord, we first have to be teachable people.
If you don’t know what to say, you’re in good company. When the Great I Am first introduced Himself to Moses and imparted his personal destiny to him, Moses made that objection that he didn’t know what to say or even how to say it.
Then Moses said to the Lord, “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”
So the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
– Exodus 4:10-12
When you are real with God about your mouth, He will be real with you. He was with Moses. In fact, if you will give Him an “ear to hear” on this subject, He will “teach you what you shall say.”
You see, God admits to creating the mute, the deaf, the seeing and the blind. Why? For His glory! If they were created to bring God glory, so was your mouth.
It’s time to go to war and win the battle for your tongue. It starts with your mind, then makes the three inch drop to your mouth. Remember, before anything can be set into order, certain things have to be spoken, so speak life over yourself! Speak victory over your mind. Speak faith and trust over your heart.
Then, when the enemy attacks – and he will attack all day every day – you will be prepared to win the fight for your mind and your mouth. The very words you speak will either attract goodness or bring wrath. Choose goodness!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO GIVE GOD CONTROL OF YOU MIND AND YOUR MOUTH. SPEAK WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT, VICTORY AND TRUTH OVER YOURSELF AND OTHERS. THE DEVIL HATES THAT BUT GOD LOVES IT!
