‘”…he who invokes a blessing on himself…shall do so by saying, ‘May the God of truth…bless me’…”‘ Isaiah 65:16
Did you know you can bless yourself by what you say? The Bible says: ‘”He who invokes a blessing on himself…shall do so by saying, ‘May the God of truth…bless me…because the former troubles are forgotten’.”‘ Two important truths are taught in this Scripture:
1) Your own words have more power to affect you than anybody else’s. Ultimately it’s not what others say that counts; it’s what you say to yourself after they get through talking! You always have the last word
2) You’ll never enjoy what God has for you in the future while you’re still living in the past. To enter the Promised Land, you must first leave the wilderness. So, come into agreement with God; begin to say what He says about you. This is no small matter. What you say from the time you get up in the morning until you go to bed at night not only influences your day, it influences the entire outlook and direction of your life. If you’ve been praying and asking God for specific answers, you can affect the outcome by making sure what you say lines up with what He says. In other words; get in harmony with God. Your body is God’s temple, so be careful what you allow to come out of your mouth (1 Corinthians 3:16).
Faultfinding and negativity destroy and tear down, but scripturally-based, faith-filled words open the door to God’s blessings. That’s why Paul writes: ‘Let no…worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such…as is…beneficial…’ (Ephesians 4:29 AMP). So before you sound off, ask yourself; is this beneficial?
till next time,
easy does it
