WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23 (KJV)
Beloved, what you say with your mouth is critical to where you are going. What are the things you speak concerning your life on a daily basis? Proverbs 18:20-21 a man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth [and] with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in your mouth- If you are speaking death and negative things about the present situation you are faced with, it will happen. You see, that situation is merely a temporary condition; you are not supposed to think that it is your obituary. It is not supposed to be the end of your story or your final destination. Things will definitely open up, I can see them opening up. Do not abort it with the words that you speak.
Speak life and not death. If you wake up every morning, you should speak life into your pockets, speak life into your business, speak life into your finance, speak life into your health, speak life into your marriage, speak life into your academics, speak life into your body, and speak life into everything that concerns you. You have the authority to speak life. The book of Mark 11:22-23 says, “and Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. Have the God kind of faith” What is that God kind of faith? our text explains it thus, “for verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain…” There it is again! Your mouth must be engaged. A closed mouth is a closed destiny. Whatever has shut things down for you is a mountain. And the scripture there says if we say to the mountain be thou removed.
What are you saying? Start saying what you want to see and what you want to have. Take a decision now on the quality of words that you are speaking. Speak the word of God to your situation. The word of God is infallible, errorless, impregnable, and authoritative, it can never fail.
