When the devil is at your door and fear is breathing down your neck, you must be prepared to fight. When the devil comes at you with both barrels, you have to reach into the armory and pull out the biggest weapon you have, and that’s the Word of God in your mouth. The Word of God on the pages of your Bible will only get you so far, but the Word in your mouth will put you over the top.
And you have to do it when you don’t feel like it. You have to do it when you don’t want to, you have to do it even when you don’t believe it. In fact, that’s the most critical time to do it. And as you continue to say what the Word says, your attitude will begin to change, your heart will begin to change, and pretty soon, you will start to believe it. That’s when victory is right around the corner.
Say what the Word says; that’s the key.
Sometimes it happens quickly, sometimes it moves slower than molasses. Sometimes it happens so subtly, you don’t even realize it, but you wake up one day and say, “Wow, I’m not struggling with that issue any longer.” That’s how it seems to work with me a lot of the time.
People say that talk is cheap, but it’s most definitely not. It’s power, it’s medicine, it’s ammunition, it’s your way out.
God created the universe with His words. You are made like Him. What are you doing with your words?
