Speak the Word ONLY! pt.3
For the past two months, we have looked at the issue of dealing with our speech. This month, we will look at how we actually speak the Word only and we will look at what happens when we don't speak God's Word.
In order for us to speak God's Word on a regular basis, not just when we focus on it, we must have our minds transformed to line up with God's Word. Romans 12:2
In James 3:2-12, we see an example of an untransformed mind. We cannot operate speaking like the world and expecting to have God's Words results. We have to speak God's Word or what lines up with His Word if we expect to receive right results.
God's Word must be sown in our hearts. Matthew 12:34-35; 13:19-23; Luke 6:45; Psalms 34:13 We cannot sow wrong seed (media) and get right results. Every man is given a measure of faith. What he does with that faith is determined by him. Romans 12:3b; 10:17 We can have productive things in our lives or we can have destructive things.
What happens when we don't speak God's Word?
We can give the enemy a place to manifest. Ephesians 4:27 When we don't speak God's Word, we don't give God a place to manifest. Exodus 3:7-10. We are the authorized vehicles for manifestation in the earth. We have to cooperate with God in order for Him to use us. God expects us to use our speech just like Jesus did. 1 Peter 2:21-23 KJV & AMP We have to recognize that our speech betrays us. Whatever is in our heart, will eventually come out of our mouth. Matthew 26:73: 12:34-35 When you speak in line with the curse instead of the Word, you must take back what you said and speak God's Word instead. Jesus shows us this with the situation that happened when Peter denied Him. John 18:17, 25-27; 21:15-17 In our lives, we will see the daily benefit of speaking God's Word only. Manifesting God's Word instead of the curse brings the culture of heaven into our lives and the lives of those around us. That brings glory to God!
