Topic: Don’t Say What God Didn’t Say [TREM Devotional 13 May 2020]
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. – Ephesians 4:29 KJV
When you read that scripture, you may think that it is when you are relating with other people. No! It has to do even with yourself. Let no corrupt communication proceed from you to yourself or another person. Corrupt communication is anything contrary to what God said about you. When you begin to spew out and spill out what God didn’t say about you, it is a corrupt communication. And Paul is telling us not to let it happen.
When challenged in your health, declare ”By His stripes, I am healed”. When death lurks around, I shall not die but live to declare the works of God. My God supplies all my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I will not be stranded! The tempest may rage and billows may toss high, I will be standing. I have been delivered from darkness. I am walking in the kingdom of His dear Son. This is how a believer should speak.
Speak out the things that would build you up. Speak out the things that will edify you. Wake up early in the morning and begin to make declarations from the scriptures. Find scriptures that will build you up and jumpstart you every morning. Start your day with the Word. Become addicted to the Word of the Lord. Speak the Word and you will see the manifestations! Remember that we are not living life in assumption. We are living our lives with a knowing because we have the seal of God over our lives. After all said and done,
Remember the fact is not the truth. The fact is what you feel, the truth is what the word says. Override your circumstance with the word by declaring the word over your life.
Whichever way you turn, head or tail you are already on the winning side. Your words must be consistent with this reality.
