If you listen to a person talk, in a little while you can locate them spiritually. Spiritual maturity is determined by what we say in the course of our daily conversation. My mother taught me an old cliché years ago, sticks and stones may break my bones but words don’t harm me. This phrase was obviously coined by a person who knows nothing about living by faith.
Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God.
God created the worlds, the ones we can see and the ones we cannot see. He exercised His Word to create the worlds exactly how He wanted them, then He gave man dominion over them, but man obeyed the voice of a serpent and he opened the door to God’s archenemy, the devil. Today we live in a fallen world that must deal with the curse all the live long day. But we have a choice, we can let the devil frame our world or we can become proactive. We can take God’s Word and frame our own world, God is offering us a custom made life. We are the prophet, the architect of our own life. So, whatcha havin?
Mark 11:24 What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.
One day the Lord spoke this to Charles Capps “I told My people they could have what they say but they been saying what they have”. The kingdom of God functions by the laws God gave us, consequently words matter. Faith filled words dominate the law of sin and death. The devil came to steal, kill and destroy, Jesus came to give us a life better than we have ever dreamed of. God does not give us what He thinks is best for us. He gives us what we say. Why can’t God just give us only good things? He certainly wants to but He is bound by the laws He created. These laws are for our benefit. We must speak the devil out and God in, it’s not up to God, it’s up to us. Once you learn and understand the laws of God you can use them to your advantage and disappoint the devil.
James 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not so to be.
It would be so convenient if we had two mouths, then we could permanently disable the one that speaks curses. God gave every man one mouth and the choice to speak whatsoever we choose. A mature Christian can bridle his tongue and commit to speaking only words that bless. Can you imagine what kind of life you would have if you spoke words of edification only? We will always have today what we spoke yesterday and tomorrow we will have what we say today. In order to be successful we must be totally conscious of every word that we allow to come out of our pie hole.
This is not a play on words, we are to speak the Word the Lord has already established. “But I didn’t mean to say that”. Well, it doesn’t matter, you will have what you say, not what you meant to say. Living by faith is not a game, it’s a matter of life and death. Our words will activate God or the devil, one brings life and one brings death. Whatcha havin?
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
