Speak Life; Not Death

Mark 11:14 In response Jesus said to it, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever again."

11:22 "Have faith in God.  For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain," 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.  Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

In the book of Mark in chapter 11, from the Bible, New King James Version, Jesus was leaving Bethany with the twelve disciples and He was hungry.  He noticed from afar a fig tree, and decided to approach to find food on it.  When he approached the fig tree, there was nothing to eat; only leaves.  Jesus then said, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever again."

Later when the disciples and Jesus passed the fig tree, Peter, one of Jesus' disciples noticed that the fig tree withered and brought it to Jesus attention. then Jesus replies, "Have faith in God.  For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.  Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."  

Jesus uses parables and illustrations to reach people to make them think about their actions.  What Jesus was saying is that whatever you speaketh and you believeth, you shall bear its fruit: you shall have what you asked for in life.  It's important to speak life over yourself, over your family and over your community.  When you speak life in to people around yourself, it builds and changes things positively.  On the other hand if you speak death, it can lead to things in your life to rotten, to disrupt, to derail, and to destroy.  They can work both for you and work in the same fashion, so which one will you choose?  Are you choosing life (positivity) or choosing death (negativity)?

This year, let's take a different look on life.  What is it in your life that you really want to see change?  Have you written it down?  Have you spoke life over it?  Have prayed on it?  Have you set a plan in motion to do it?  Do you believe that it'll come to pass?  Have you prayed and talked to the Lord God about it?  What are some things that you've said that you regret?  Well even though you cannot change what was said in the past, you can change what you say in the future.  Even if you planted a flower and it died in the soil doesn't mean you cannot plant another flower and make sure that this time you cultivate it in the direction for it to grow.  It is the same with your mouth and your heart because you can change what you say and you can make things better.

This year in everything, speak life.  If you  want something to be better for your life, say these things below:

  • Lord God I know You will bless my family and bless me
  • Lord God I know if I keep You first, all things will work out according to Your plan you have for me
  • Lord God Your Word is true
  • Lord God You are the Truth
  • Lord God, I know you have not put more on me and all things are possible
  • Lord God I am your vessel and I know you have an assignment for me to perform
  • Lord God, you didn't bring me this far to fall
  • Lord God, there is a message in this situation, and I ask for you to show me the Light so I can get out of the darkness
  • Lord God, I want a relationship with you, and I know you provide my needs
  • Lord allow me to seek you in everything I do
  • Lord God with you I shall prosper 
  • Lord God allow me to be a blessing to others by showing your Will

If there are any either statements or affirmations that you can say to our Lord God, then say it to Him daily, and believe what you say, and everything shall come to pass.  Speak life over everything, and know that when you believe in what you say, it passes through the heart of your body because that's what pumps the blood through your veins in order to be engrafted into the tissues of your skin. your muscles and your limbs.  It'll stick to you and then it'll grow.  Choose your words wisely, so the words that you spoke positively are the words we see grow from you and from the work you've produced.

Have a Happy New Year,and remember to speak what: LIFE
