What are we speaking and thinking? As a man thinketh so is he(Proverbs 23:7) means our thoughts and words must line up with the word of God. But honestly speaking how many times a day do we find ourselves speaking, thinking or communicating the opposite of the word of God. We are bombarded by our culture in the form of tv, radio, billboards, magazines and other people. Hourly we see images, words and pictures that are opposite of the word of God. Once we step out of our house, there is the culture of the world.
So how do we live in this world but not be of this world? Jesus told us to let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Phil 2:5). The devil is not after our elbow, our knee, our car, or our clothes. The enemy wants our mind and our words. Every choice, every decision, every word comes form our mind. We must let, allow the word of God into us all the way.
Jesus is our example in all things. Jesus had no other agenda than to promote the glory of God and the salvation of mankind. He was not distracted by money, fame or fortune. His meat and drink was to do the will of the Father. Jesus humbled himself to become a servant all the way to the cross. Jesus left the glory of heaven in the presence of His Father, and humbled himself, abased himself and took on the lowliness of a human servant. Hallelujah.
It is time for us to let go of the other agendas and make the agenda of God our sole purpose. We must start right where Jesus was, In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He is the Word. We must say what the Word-Jesus says. Say, speak, think, keep our minds on what Jesus said. When Jesus was tempted He spoke the Word because he was the Word made flesh. As he went from town to town, He spoke the Word.
Beloved what are we saying? Let us stop gossiping, doubting, talking about the problem over and over, but start to speak the Word of God. Nothing added nothing taken away. Let us speak the Word of God. Let us say what God said day and night, in season and out of season, when we are going to and through. Speak the Word.
God my prayer is that each of us would spend time in your Word today and every day this week. That we would saturate our minds with your Word. We would think and speak your words in Jesus name. When there is a decision, let us ask the question what does the Word say? When we don't know what to do, let us find out what the Word says and speak Your Words Father. I decree and declare a diligent, study and learning time with you this week where each of us can bask in your presence and recieve your Word. As we receive help each of us to not keep it to ourselves but share it in Jesus name.
God bless you,
I love you in Jesus name.
