MIND YOUR MOUTH (I)
One of the most effective ways the devil fights Christians is by using the words of our mouth against us. As a Christian, you have faith, which is the capacity to believe God and experience Him, but you must make a conscious effort to give precise and accurate education to your mouth so as not to use it against yourself or your children while you use it to pull spiritual realities from the spirit world.
God says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” If you are ignorant of the impact of your words, you can use them against yourself. If you want life, speak it; and if you regularly speak death, it will happen. As a Christian, you must understand that everything you say in life falls under life and death.
Some people play into the hands of the devil, not when people are around, but when they are alone. Such people find themselves alone in the toilet or in some other places and start making negative statements which surely come to pass somewhere unless cancelled.
Negative statements should not come out of your mouth, whether you are alone or you are in the midst of people. You must be consistent in saying positive things to your life. When a sinner makes a positive statement, it is just good wishes but when a Christian confesses the scriptures, he is declaring the power of God into operation.
PRAYER: Lord, circumcise my mouth. I pray for a divine reversal of every negative word I have spoken in the past in Jesus’ name. Amen!
