"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:8
Our heavenly Father places a great emphasis on His Word, especially the spoken Word. It was by the spoken Word that He framed the universe. He tells us in Hebrews 11:6 that without faith, it is impossible to please Him and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him . He tells us in Romans 10:17 that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Reading, studying, and mediating on the Word of God increases our knowledge and understanding of Him. It teaches wisdom. And God's wisdom can give us the breakthroughs we want and need in every area of our life. Hearing the Word of God builds our faith within our spirit to give us the confidence to fulfill His plan for our life...the abundant life (John 10:10). But, speaking the anointed Word of God empowers us to achieve the abundant life.
We cannot over emphasize the value God places on the words we speak. Throughout the Bible, He warns us against idle and foolish talking. Jesus warns,"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 12:36-37
James, chapter 3, is about controlling our tongue. God calls our tongue an unruly, little, evil member that must be tamed. In verse 10, he warns that "out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing". Make no mistake about it, we need to watch what we say about ourselves, our situations, our love ones, our friends, etc. Its a matter of life or death.
As you read and speak your daily scriptures, remember that God loves you. He is no respecter of person for what He did for someone else, He will do it for you (Acts 10:34). All it takes is faith in Him and His Word.
"The Bible is the Word of God: supernatural in origin, eternal in duration, inexpressible in valor, infinite in interest, personal in application, inspired in totality. Read it through, write it down, pray it in, work it out, and then pass it on. Truly it is the Word of God." (Smith Wigglesworth from his sermon entitled, "Like Precious Faith" )
