If someone commands you something then chances are you will do or say as told. In Deuteronomy 28:8, the Bible tells us, “The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouse and in all that you undertake. And He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.” God commands us a blessing but why do some see those blessings and others don’t? I believe our words have power over what product we see in our lives. Our words are either going out to destroy or build up what God is wanting to do in our lives. In Proverbs 12:18, the Bible tells us that our words can either pierce or bring healing. In life there will always be some junk, otherwise known as stuff to complain about but on the other hand there is great stuff to be thankful for. The good news is we get to choose what we talk about! Most of us spend our days talking about the junk instead of being thankful for what we do have going right. I want to challenge you to start taking inventory of what you are saying each day. If God commands a blessing on you, yet you aren’t seeing it, then what words are you saying that are destroying that blessing from being yours? I’m sure most of you have heard Proverbs 18:21, death and life in the power of the tongue. This is basically saying, your life is as good or bad as you say it is and the fruit of your life depends on what you are saying. Are you constantly saying I’m broke, I’m stressed, or I’m tired? If you say it constantly then guess what friend, you’ll get just that! I love the verse in Isaiah 53:7, where we see that Jesus also had to keep his mouth closed at times. We have to choose to not talk about the negative and keep our eyes on God. If Jesus had to do it, so will we. So, how do you change what you are saying to start seeing all that God has for your life?
Declare what you want. So often we don’t get all that God has for us because we are talking all that we don’t have. Just as it says in Isaiah 42:9, if you want to begin to see Gods full command of blessing on your life, start declaring what you want. Stop talking about what you see and start talking about what God says!
Speak God’s word. This is the most powerful thing you can do! God’s word spoken out of your mouth is a weapon against the enemy. When you begin to say what God says, you get in agreement with Heaven about your future. Begin to believe God’s word and declare it over your life, that’s when everything will start to change.
Daily Declare. Have daily declarations over your family, business, friends, children, or whatever you are believing for. Have it everywhere you see to where you are constantly reminding yourself to say the right things on purpose. You believe more of what you hear yourself say than what anyone says to you. It’s time to start speaking life into yourself!
Friend, I hope this challenged you to start changing what you’re saying and start declaring the goodness of God over your life. I know it’s not always easy, but it’s a choice that we have to make daily in order to see the command of blessings God has for us!
