Our Words Bring Forth Power Part 2
2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
3 And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
26 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.
28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:
34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.
Just like the children of Israel ended back up in the wilderness, this was caused by them not changing their speech. It isn't called born again for no reason. We have to renew our whole way of life. We have to learn to walk, in the Spirit, We have to learn how to talk, By faith, we have to change what we watch and or listen to. We are the gatekeepers of our very soul. We are in charge of what we allow to enter our eye gates and ear gates. We are in charge of our emotions. We choose our moods, we are in charge of them, Nobody else is! We can choose to break out with praise and worship to God and speak out this is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it, OR....we can choose to act in a way that is not Christlike. It is OUR choice!! Nobody can keep you from being an overcomer but you!! REMEMBER...it is written, "Death and life is in the tongue" Choose LIFE! There is blessings and cursings in our life by our own words. Many people will speak out, Well...my Mom or Dad died at a young age of____ and I probably will too! If you say it often enough it will take root and harvest. Remember, the law of confession!!
So we have the enemy trying to wreak havoc on us and we have our own words that can condemn us. We are given the truth, but as God says; My people perish for lack of knowledge. He sent Jesus into the world to give life more abundantly, but if you give the devil entry into your mind he will destroy you by the thoughts he put there to be spoken out .
Look at John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The bible warns of old wives tales, superstition,idle words,giving the devil place. Here's just a few sayings we have all been guilty of, now think on earlier how I had shared, "Death and life is in the tongue" okay..."That kills me!" or "That scared me to death" or
Some Mothers say;" I'll never get you raised" or "you'll be the death of me" or some parents telling their kids they won't ever amount to nothing! These are words of curses!
I'm not talking voo doo here, I am talking of the law of confession. Speak what you want by faith. If you want healed, the say daily "By his stripes I am Healed" If you are in a financial bind, Speak....God is gonna open up the floodgates and breakthrough is coming!
We are to call things that are not as though they were.
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
By God's word was all created. God created us in His image and as creators too. We are to subdue, take control and authority to make changes in our life and our world.
Above was just an example of speaking death into your life, even fear,which in reality most words of negativity are caused by fear based thoughts.
We are to be Christlike if we call ourself christians, now I know He is the author and finisher of our faith but he needs us, His containers to plant good word seed. Jesus NEVER spoke an idle word. We too can feed on the word and let it take root and correct ourself when we do confess something that is not in align with what God says about us or for our circumstance. John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. Let's look at that in laymans terms of the amplified bible AMP>John 3:34For since He Whom God has sent speaks the words of God [proclaims God's own message], God does not give Him His Spirit sparingly or by measure, but boundless is the gift God makes of His Spirit!
God is watching over His word and He waits and longs to bring it to past in our lives. He also protects us as we guard His word, and bring it forth with the power He has given us to.
Psalms 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Joshua 1:5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
We need to be aware of the ministering angels that are there to work on our behalf to do the word of God that we confess,BUT...if our words are not faith words we stop our angels in their tracks! I'm sure we have all had our turn in wearing our angels out.
I recall a minister saying how pessimist will say well...it feels warm and the sun is shining BUT...look at the clouds, it's gonna rain. He said we need to leave our BUT behind us :-)
52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
The only sword we are to use is the word. We most all have come into this kingdom of God and sown bad word seeds.We can turn it around by planting God's word in our heart to weed out and uproot the old ones. Faith comes by reading the word of God. Many times new christians will reap what they had sown from past talk but don't be discouraged, look at the positive, it proves the law of confession and if we speak out words from God's word for our lives We shall reap what we sow also!! Hallelujah!!
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Another good faith seed, feed on this here about the faith of Abraham
17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:
I hope you got a good feeding and plant this deep in your heart. Meditate on it and be blessed! I leave you now with one last verse that pulls this whole teaching together.
Eph. 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,<<I had to underline that!!!
Have a wonderful day !!! God bless you; Pastor Linda Begley
