KEY SCRIPTURE: Rev 12:11 KJV” And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
The Lord Jesus throughout his lifetime conquered every challenge that rose up against Him. In almost all of these encounters he had to use His mouth to address the situation to bring about a drastic change. The Lord spoke to blind eyes, and they were opened. He spoke to crippled legs and they were made straight. He commanded the storms to be at peace. He called four days dead, Lazarus from the grave, and he came back to life. He said my words are spirit and life. When Satan came tempting Jesus, he answered the devil with,” it is written’, and then quoted the scripture. The Lord showed us that by using our mouth we can release the power of God to various situations and win over them.
God has established in His word that by believing Him for whatever He has said we are justified, and by boldly saying what we have believed, salvation is affected. (Romans 10:9&10) A closed mouth is a closed destiny. Your words reveal who you exalt in times of difficulty. The Lord shows us the essence of boldly confessing him to men in the following verse. Luke 12:8 & 9 KJV “Also I say unto you, whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God. But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God”. Whenever we declare before men the glory of God or testify about God’s ability to save, the angels are released to bring that word to pass. When you keep your mouth shut, the angels will have no instruction to come to your aid.
In every contest you find yourself, you can always speak to the situation to comply. This is a very strong principle in the Spirit. David conquered Goliath by boldly stating to him what will happen to him. 1 Samuel 17:46. He said to him ‘God will deliver you into my hands, and I would slay you’. David did not have a sword, but was still speaking by faith. This is the way to speak to situations, trusting God to honour His word. Speak to any condition you want to see a change. Speak to your body, speak to your finances, speak to your marriage. Call for peace in your home.
LIFE and death are in the power of the tongue. I choose life, by calling for good, blessings, health, peace, success in all I do. As the Lord defeated the devil by holding faith with God, I also win by declaring boldly God’s word in every situation.
Proverbs 18:21 KJV “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Psalms 8:2 KJV” Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger”.
