Yesterday I looked up some promises in the Bible to post above my desk. I felt impressed to be speaking out faith over my heart and mind. I don't always know how or what to pray for, so I believe this will energize my prayers.
"God's Word is His promise to us, and we should speak of those things He promised us as if they already existed." Joyce Meyer
By continually speaking the negative, we are declaring negative things into our lives. Sometimes it is best to not say anything aloud at all, lest we speak against God's will for us - his best for us. But if we can speak aloud the promises and positive words God has given, we will experience the power to believe He will do those things in our lives.
Words are powerful instruments and God will use them if you speak life, prosperity, health, peace, joy and love over yourself and others. If you look through the words of Jesus you will see he applied this principle of positive declaration when He healed the sick and spoke of the kingdom to come. The Psalms encourage us to speak positive words as well.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you,O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders. Psalm 26:7
It's difficult to be positive when things are falling all around you. But you have nothing to lose by speaking victory - except for defeat - and that's the whole point.
