KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 12:37 KJV “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
Who are you? Many of us would answer this question in the light of our natural lineage. In actual fact you are how you call yourself. Our Lord Jesus never made a mistake when he was declaring who He was. He had taken the form of a man and became a servant to die on the cross (Phil 2:5& 6) His description of Himself amazed His hearers. He said I am the Light of the world. (John 8:12) He said God is my father (Luke 2:49). He said I and my father are one. John 10:30. They took stones to kill Him because of that.
Would you notice that Jesus never said even once in all His lifetime that he was the son of Joseph and Mary. He assured all those who needed help in one form or another that He could help them. Why did He speak this way? The Lord new that the spiritual state always rules over the natural. He always identified Himself with His spiritual lineage Hebrews 11:3. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God. Your words create your world. Your words form in the spirit and later manifest in the natural. Whenever you identify yourself with anything weak that is what you are. The word says God calls those things which be not as though they were (Rom 4:17) How do you call yourself? You are one Spirit with Jesus (1st Corinth 6:17) Say I am one with Jesus. Say I have the ability of Christ in me. I can heal the sick like He did. This is your true identity. Do you say I am the weak one? Do you say things are difficult for me? No, never talk like that. Rather say I am the strong one. I am the healed one. I am the blessed one.
Dear brother be careful how you speak. Your words define you. The bible says infants in the Lord are always under tutors and instructors. The Greek word for such people is Nepios
Galatians 4:1 KJV “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all”; The Bible defines such a one as ‘non speaking’. The implication is that they do not speak rightly. Not speaking rightly is not speaking according to the scriptures. His inheritance would never be delivered into his hands. Negative forces will easily rule over him. The inheritance is given to the adult son called huios” in Greek. The adult son or huios knows how to speak in line with God’s word. You are snared by the words of your mouth. You are also blessed by the words of your mouth. You also become what you say. Your words are your signature in the Spirit signing what should happen to you. Be careful what you say. According to Ps 45:1, your tongue is a pen. It signs decrees of your life.
Thank you, heavenly father for your word. It is my daily food. It is my compass in life. It is the words I speak. My world is ruled by the words from my mouth. No unwholesome word comes from my mouth. I live by God’s word. By His word in my mouth I conquer every difficulty and my way is made very prosperous.
Psalm 45:1 KJV. To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. My heart is indicting a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer”.
Joshua 1:8 KJV “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
