1 John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” As Christians, we’re victorious in Christ Jesus, and we maintain our victory by speaking faith-filled words. We speak the language of victors. We speak righteousness, success, and excellence only. The Apostle Paul calls our language “the wisdom of God”: “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world….But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery…” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7).
Never be among those whining and griping over the dwindling state of the world’s economy or the darkness in the world; rather, speak the wisdom of God! Affirm what Jesus said about you: “Ye are the light of the world…” (Matthew 5:14). Declare that ideas, solutions, joy, fulfilment, and direction are flowing through you; you’re making things happen; you’re teaching the world how to live.
When someone says, “Business is really down these days,” you say, “No, business is booming; it’s better now than ever!” Job 22:29 says, “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up….” That’s how victors talk; they respond to circumstances and situations with the Word; they say what God has said. Hebrews 13:5-6 says, “…he hath said…So that we may boldly say….”
If you’ve been experiencing symptoms of an ailment, for example, don’t voice the symptoms; declare healing and health. If you were feeling weak, declare that you’re strengthened and invigorated with might by the Holy Ghost in your inner man. Affirm that the life of God in you is superior, and therefore, destroys and dispels every sickness, disease, and pain from your body.
Keep affirming your righteousness and triumphant life in Christ! Reign and rule over circumstances with the Word of faith in your mouth.
