Speaking Faith Filled Words
After my run today I had quite the pity-post to share, but I refuse to let those thoughts take up my time today. Instead I turned a few more pages in Joel Osteen's "It's Your Time" and I replace those discouraging words with some advice from him:
I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am favored. I am healthy. I am free.
When you speak faith, you are in agreement with God. When you speak defeat, you're in agreement with the enemy.
God-talk brings God on the scene. Enemy-talk brings the enemy on the scene. All through the day there are two voices competing for our attention - the voice of faith and the voice of defeat.
Now you must choose which choice comes to life. Make your choice known by speaking out. The moment you verbalize that thought, you give it the right to come to pass. When you choose negative words, you choose the wrong voice.
Get in agreement with God. That other voice may be louder, but you can override it. You can take away all of its power by simply choosing the voice of faith.
I am blessed.
I am prosperous.
I am favored.
I am healthy.
I am free.
