If you want to see God’s promises to you fulfilled, it’s important to make sure your words match up with God’s Words.
The best way to encourage yourself is to quote Bible verses out loud. Say, “I’m the redeemed of the Lord (Ps. 107:2). I’m the apple of His eye (Ps. 17:8). I’m the head and not the tail, above and not beneath” (Deut. 28:13). Saying what God says about you will speak life back into your soul!
Whether you realize it or not, you’re always speaking over yourself, and those words are either ministering life or death. There is no “neutral” zone. If you’re not saying what God says about you, then you’ll repeat the lies that the enemy and other people may say about you. “You can’t do this! You can’t be that! You’ll never amount to anything! You’ve missed your chance!”
Why agree with lies? If you are going to be speaking over yourself, you might as well make a conscious effort to say what God says about you and speak good things. People won’t always be there to encourage you, but you can encourage yourself. It’s also important to remember that if you want people to say good things about you, you’ve got to sow some seed and speak good things into someone else’s life. When you do you’ll reap “good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over” (Luke 6:38).
Don’t let wrong thinking lead to wrong speaking.
HERE’S A TIP:
THE TAKE AWAY
Get a set of 3×5 cards, find an app, tape a piece of paper to your bathroom mirror – find a way to write down scriptures that tell you who God says you are and start saying those things. Whatever it takes, get God’s Word in front of your face and get His Words coming out of your mouth.
