RISE

Hello: When we were children we were all told that sticks and stones could break our bones but words could never hurt us. As it turns out this is not the case at all. Words are extremely powerful and one of the precepts of our faith points out that death and life reside in the tongue. What you say actually locates where you are mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, Matthew 12:34. And it is also true that we will find ourselves unable to rise above our own words. If we constantly speak fear, defeat, failure, anxiety, sickness and unbelief we will actually frame our own world by those words, and find ourselves living on that level far below our privilege in Christ Jesus. Neither we nor anyone else will ever live above the standard we set by our own conversation regardless of our advantages in life. Invariably if an individual’s conversation is foolish, impractical or confused his life will be the same way. Our words can paint a pretty clear picture of our inner selves. Proverbs 21:23 says Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. What a statement. How often we can look back over our lives and say amen to that one! How many times we wish we could have taken something back or just not been there in that moment, but the bible says that a word spoken is like an arrow spent, once it is released, the damage is done and no amount of apology or atonement, can really put things completely back like it was before. We know with our mouths confession can be made, and that can be a great thing...but it can also be a great negative...if our confession is bondage, weakness, sickness, lack or failure and any other thing that does not line up in agreement with the blessings of His grace. The enemy delights in leading us by our physical eyes but we are those who walk not by sight, but by faith in the Word of God. Our Father has said many specific and wonderful things about His Sons and Daughters and we have many entitlements in Him. We cannot look at our situations and circumstances through our natural eyes and then agree with the enemies assessment. We must allow our words to line up with His Word...until His Word and our word are one Word.........and our confession is His confession.......if our confession denies the reality of scripture we will go on in defeat........RISE........to the level of the Word ..... Love and Blessings Pastor Randy
