Speak Life Into Your Destiny

“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” (Matthew 12:34 KJV)

God has given you the ability to speak life and death into your situation and circumstance for the bible says that there is life and death in the power of the tongue.

Now that’s an amazing thing because if used for good, you can conquer anything that the enemy can throw your way. However, it is up to you. What will it be life or death?

What are your thoughts day in and day out? Do you speak positive thoughts into your life, your dreams and visions?

David was a great example of someone who spoke life into his circumstances. He encouraged himself in the mist of his own trials. He wrote songs while going through trials and he came out victorious.

David was his own motivator, he encouraged himself in the Lord.

Children are born with an amazing imagination. You hear many stories of children who want to grow up to become firefighters, lawyers, doctors or scientist. Over a period of time, those same kids become conditioned to believe, “Oh you won’t amount to such a thing” and they believe it because someone has spoken death into their dreams.

It’s very important that you understand the power of speaking over yourself in the Lord. I believe that you can just speak a word and birth a miracle into your life and the life of someone else.

The other day I was speaking with a great friend, and we were talking in a casual somewhat jovial tone and I said to them, “If I told you that you can go out here and win a million dollars, would you believe me?”

Their response was, “Well it depends on how or what I’m doing that would cause me to win the million dollars?”

Sometimes you don’t need know the “who, what, when, where and the hows,” you should speak life into yourself.

R. L. Allan's Oxford Long Primer 2I believe that sometimes we, myself included, are afraid to speak certain things over ourselves because we are afraid of the big let down. Remember, when you take a step out on faith, God goes on your behalf to make a way out of what seems to be no way. He’s looking for the opportunity to bless you.

As I said we may not always know the “whats” and the “hows” but bible says that you have not because you ask not.

I’m encouraging you just like I am encouraging myself, to dream big dreams, speak them into existence. Don’t fear the possibilities of your dreams not coming to pass. Fear is a tactic of the enemy to throw you off track.

2 Timothy 1:7 says “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Let your tongue speak life and not death into your destiny today.
