It is not enough to just avoid the negative. You have to choose to be positive. You have to focus on the goodness of God. You may see negative all around you but you do not have to let the negative grow in you … stop speaking negative, stop talking down your life, your marriage, your job — START SPEAKING LIFE!!!!
Joel 3:10: “Let the weak say, ‘I am a warrior.’” You become what you confess. It does not say, “Let the weak pray to become a warrior.” Or “Let the weak train harder.” It says let the weak SAY. Joel was teaching us the important truth that “you are what you repeatedly say about yourself.”
Let me say this; just because someone says something about you does not make it true! Some of you don’t know how to speak life – you grew up in an environment that was not encouraging – negative words were planted into your heart. Today, declare, “I AM not what others have said to me or about me … I AM what God says that I AM.”
I AM righteous. Forgiven. Complete. Saved. Overcomer.
Deuteronomy 30:19: “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Choose to speak life. It does not just affect you … it will impact generations after you are long gone.
