Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. — PROVERBS 6:2
Many Christians blame certain things on the devil, when actually they are taken captive by the words of their own mouths. One writer expressed it this way:
You said you could not — and the moment you said it you were whipped. You said you did not have faith — and doubt rose up like a giant and bound you. You are imprisoned with your own words. You talked failure, and failure held you in bondage.
Our words dominate us. That’s what Jesus was saying in Mark 11:23: “. . . he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
Never talk failure. Never talk defeat. Never acknowledge for one moment that God’s ability or power cannot put you over. If you do talk failure or defeat, you are acknowledging that God cannot and has not put you over in life.
But thank God, He can! And He has! If you will believe right and talk right, you will walk in the reality of it!
Confession: I refuse to talk failure. I refuse to talk defeat. God puts me over in life.
