Are you ready to begin our next march to demolish the barriers blocking the fulfillment of God’s promises in your life? During the next few days, we are going to deal with one of the most powerful forces in the world, one that determines the entire course of your life: James 3:1-18
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge it shall eat the fruit of it (for death or life). (Proverbs 18:21, TAB)
Your words determine your destiny! You are either speaking forth…
…Blessing or cursing.
…Power or weakness.
…Faith or unbelief.
…Victory or defeat.
…Abundance or lack.
…Life or death.
If you continually speak negative words of fear, doubt, and discouragement, you are setting the course of your life to live in discouragement and defeat. If you constantly talk about your problems, your sickness, and your lack of finances, you will continue to live with your problems, sickness, and lack of finances. The words coming out of your mouth will hinder you from taking possession of God’s promises!
However, if you will take control over your tongue, get rid of the doubt and unbelief in your heart and mind, fill your mouth with the Word of God, and begin to speak it forth, you will be setting the course of your life to live in victory. You will take possession of God’s promises!
God is bringing us into a new dimension of authority where our words, spoken with authority, invested in the promises of God, will enable us to confront every stronghold of the enemy. Before you can enter this powerful spiritual realm of authority, however, you must gain control of your tongue.
This battle to gain control of your tongue actually begins in your heart and mind. That is why we spent the entire month of March breaking through the barrier of our carnal, natural minds to take hold of the one-hundred percent victorious mind of Christ. Only as your mind is renewed and you take hold of the one-hundred percent victorious mind of Christ will you be able to bring your tongue under the control of the Holy Spirit.
Make this declaration:
I am going to fight and win the battle for my tongue. It will come under the control of the Holy Spirit.
