Scriptures For Meditation: Proverbs 18:21; Mark 11:20-24
One of the things that we meditated on yesterday, was the awesome power that is made available to Christians when we fast and pray.
This unfortunately, can become a double-edged sword, when another spiritual principle is brought into play — The Power of the spoken word!
As we read today in our scripture text Proverbs 18:21,
Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. Proverbs 18:21 (The Message Bible)
One of the strategies of Satan against believers, is to get us to agree with his perspective on the things that are happening in our lives, and then
encourage us to speak according to the lies that he has caused us to believe.
A time that we are to be most vigilant and conscious of this attack, is the period when we are waiting on the Lord in fasting and prayers.
Things will often happen during this time that are designed to make you take your eyes off God and the promises and prophecies that He has spoken concerning
your life, and get you instead, to speak negatively concerning your situation.
Whatever you do friend, do not meditate on, nor pronounce “what is not right” about your life or situation. Declare instead what the Lord has
promised, and what the word of God says concerning you!
The enemy will try to sabotage your spiritual efforts and distract you, if not today, definitely sometime over this period. He will instigate situations
to frustrate you, and move people to irritate, annoy or rub you the wrong way.
Resolve not to speak a rash word in anger, frustration or despair today; rather, speak words of faith and life, letting the word of God to be the influence
that will shape your day—
Your destiny is in your mouth, be careful what you speak it to be!
Ask God for the grace, strength and wisdom not to react to the schemings of the enemy to get you to speak the wrong words.
Whatever things are happening in your life right now that are contrary to what the word of God has declared, are subject to change!
Begin to declare to these things, that they will hear the word of the Lord that you speak to them, and declare also, that they must turn out to be
how God had said they should be! (Your health, marriage, children, ministry, business, job, finances, your destiny).
Stand with us in a prayer of agreement, and please pray these same prayers concerning our ministry, Guiding Light Assembly.
May the Lord honour His word in your life in the precious Name Of Jesus. Amen.
