A few weeks ago, I was watching a three-year old girl recite some Bible verses. After reciting a few, she got stuck and couldn't continue. At that point, her aunt asked her: "What do you say to your mind?". She replied: "…my mind is enlightened with wisdom, knowledge, understanding and retentive memory through the blood of Jesus Christ". Afterwards, her aunt told her to continue reciting the verses from where she stopped and she recited it all this time. An alternative option for the girl was to say: "I can't remember" or "this is too much for me to handle" but rather, she used her words positively.
Our words have a way of making things turn around for our good, if we can learn to use them right. Guidance and revelation can be experienced when we practice the art of confessing positive words into our lives, our studies, career, business or family. Most successful people have maintained the practice of speaking positive words into their lives. We rarely hear them speak negatively about their businesses, work or family. We need to understand that our words have a way of bringing God's grace and favour into our lives.
"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (Mark 11:23-24)
Our words, depending on how we use them have the capacity of working wonders for us; they can shape, define and brighten up our lives, they can even deliver us from difficult situations. The same way Jesus used his words to calm the storm, raise Lazarus from death and dry up the fig tree, we can also use our words to turn situations around for us.
