Speaking is an important aspect of the human existence. The word speak in the Greek means to “say out loudly.” In other words, speaking must be heard, and must not be silent. The Bible says, “Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.” Read Luke 1:42 (NKJV). Here, you see the emphasis was placed on Mary speaking out loudly, to the hearing of others. From the book of Genesis, chapter 1 through to 31; we see the terminology ascribed to God, “Then God said.” In other words, emphasizing the point that God is a master communicator. God the master communicator always has something of worth and value to say; and every thing He spoke about brought change to the lives of the human race. “A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil]. Read Proverbs 18:20 (AMPC). In other words, we see here, speaking has consequences. Selah. ‘Let your speaking be accompanied with positive and God’ declarative’s.’ Ricky. Your life will flow in the direction of your speech, so then, watch what you say. Selah (pause and calmly think).
It is evident we should speak and not keep silent; the question then is how do we know exactly what to say? The Bible answers it this way, God reached out, touched my mouth, and said, “Look, I’ve just put my words in your mouth—hand-delivered…” Read Jeremiah 1:9 (MSG). Scripture also says, “ But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.” Read Deuteronomy 30:14 (AMPC). I liken speaking to testifying; speaking is testifying about something, and the Bible says, “I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord.” Read Psalm 40:9 (NIV). In other words, we should not kept silent, and should constantly testify with our mouths publicly. Guess what dearly beloved, I don’t think there is anything wrong with being a talkative; especially when you are declaring loudly God’s promises over your life and situations and circumstances.
Jabez’s mother named her son Jabez, because of her pain and experience. Dearly beloved, please listen to my heart on this; I know you might have been through some kind of experiences in life, BUT, never speak and declare on the basis of your experiences in life. The Bible said of Jabez, “Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers…” “And Jabez called on the God of Israel SAYING, SPEAKING, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain! So God granted him what he requested.” Read 1 Chronicles 4:9(NKJV). Here you see, Jabez was speaking out loud what he wanted God to do for him, and in like manner, you can speak to God about your life, your business, your ministry, your children; quite frankly, all things that concerns you. Hallelujah, glory to God. And when you speak what He has already spoken according to His promise concerning you – Homologeo, God then says, “He watches over His word to perform it.”
Here is my encouragement to you today, find out what the Bible says about you, latch on to it like a bull dog would lock its teeth into the object; then begin to declare the promises and blessings of God over all that concern you. For example: I am truly blessed of God. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The works of my hands are blessed. I am increasing in the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God. I have a good inheritance, and a Godly heritage. I am above only, and never beneath. The word of God is shinning brighter and brighter on my path, therefore, I know where to step and what to do. I am highly favored with God, and with men. Hey, I am walking upon my high places. I am flourishing like the palm tree of Lebanon. All of my needs are met. I have much more than enough to meet every financial obligation. God’s grace is exceedingly abundant upon my life, all this we declare in the Name of Jesus. Hallelujah, Glory to God. Beloved, this is how we talk, we speak the promises of God, speak out loudly your promises, and denounce your fears. Watch this, “In the face of adversity, you must hold fast your confession.” Read Hebrews 10:23 (ESV).
“Let your speaking be independent of your experiences.” Hear my heart on this dearly beloved, “God is good.”
