For by thy words thou shalt be justified and thy words thy shall be condemned, Matthew 12: 37
We can see very clearly here how important our words really are. We not only affect our lives by what we say, we are also judged by it. Isnít it interesting that Jesus does not say are we justified or condemned by our deeds, but by our words? The reason Jesus says, "By thy words," is that your deeds will be based on your words. If you continue talking badly, you are going to act badly, if you continue talking sickness and disease, you will have sickness and disease, keep talking negative, you will reap negative things.
Many people have talked themselves into sickness and disease, into poverty, into fear and lack, they have not realized it. They thought as long as they believe right, they could say whatever they wanted with their mouth, and the believing still would work. What you say is what you get either positive or negative. Let assume that, you want to be physically healed, the Godís principle say with the heart man believes in physical healing; he believe that by Christís stripes he has already been healed, and with his mouth, he makes confession; I believe, I am healed. That is what will make physically healing becomes manifested in your life. Confess positive things with your mouth.
The word says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof, Psalm 18: 21
If you remember this law, and make part of your daily life, it will guarantee your success. Your faith is governed by your confession. If you confess doubt, that is where your faith will operate at the level or in the area of doubt. Your words will determine where your faith operates. There are people who are not christians who operate by the law. They make it a point to say only positive things. and maintain their confession and they are successful today. You may say, "I'd rather go to heaven poor than go to hell rich," Fine but that is not your heritage. Your heritage is for you be successful and wealthy.
Why not take full advantage of your covenant right? Folow this law of confession and go to heaven. The reason most christian are not as successful as they could be is that they talk themselves right out of it. If you ask them if they are sick, they will immediately answer.
"Yes" because they believe in sickness and they are having what they say. When do you do when someone ask you, 'are you sick,' tell them "No" I am healed, with His stripes, I am healed. Be positive always so that you can be successful.
