There is a problem I would like to address that seems to be common in most Christian circles today.Very few believers know how to speak the word to their problems and I believe it is the key to answered prayer. Instead we are negatively talking about our problems resulting in long silly counseling sessions that go nowhere and resolve nothing.Proverbs 18:21 says"Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat it's fruit."
I believe the most important weapon a believer has in his armor is his tongue.It is the #1 weapon against the devil.It's like a machine gun.It is always loaded and always produces results.Your tongue is either working for or against you.What you say will have an effect on you and the people you talk about.All we have to do is look at the latest feud between Donald Trump and Rosie for evidence of this.
For sure I have come to understand that we will never rise above our confession.In James 1:26 we read "if any man among you seem to be religious,and bridleth not his tongue,but deceiveth his own heart,this man's religion is vain.The word vain is translated "profitless"in the Greek.If we don't learn to say what God says about us and our situation we are in a sense handcuffing God to move on our behalf.God has always worked with words and always will.One of the names of Jesus is "The Word Of God".
So often after church we stand around chatting and our conversations sound something like this.." Well Bob, you know they are laying off at the plant again...yep..looks like I'll be the next to go..or...that Flu thing sure is going around hey?Did you get it yet.Everybody is getting it at work.I'll be getting it next I just know it."This kind of talk has no revelation of what Jesus has provided for us nor does it take into account the instruction on how to believe and receive according to your confession.It basically slaps God in the face and says he has made no provision for us and we are fending for ourselves.It is the kind of faith that really isn't faith at all although these believers would loudly proclaim they believe God's promises.
Consider what Jesus said in Mark 11:22-26" Have faith in God.For assuredly I say to you whoever says to this mountain,Be thou removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he SAYS will be done,he will have whatever he SAYS.Therefore I say to you whatever things you ask when you pray believe that you receive them and you will have them.And when you stand praying if you have anything against anyone,forgive him,that your father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.But if you do not forgive neither will your father in heaven forgive your trespasses."Along with proper confession we need to be walking in love so that our prayers aren't hindered.Answered prayer begins with changes in us.
I am writing this article not to condemn but to encourage.The only victories I have experienced in my life came from speaking God's word on a regular basis and hanging in there until it came to pass.We inherit the promises of God by faith and patience.God really has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness.So whatever you are believing God for start calling those things that are not as though they are.Thank him daily for your new job,husband,wife,healing..or whatever you are praying about.Make sure you are asking according to his will and then persevere and be positive and don't let others rain on your parade.
