The words of your mouth determine your ultimate worth in the school of success. It is impossible to encounter success without talking success. This is because the words we speak are seeds. So, you can’t lay hold on success if you don’t talk success. The louder you talk success, the brighter your encounter with it. Let me show you how the words you speak affect you.
YOUR WORDS ARE SEEDS
The words you speak are seeds, which bring forth fruits after their kind.
” The seed is the word of God “. (Luke 8:11)
The seed is the Word of God. That means, how much of the Word of God that is expressed through your lips in any area of your life determines your harvest in that area. So, when you stuff your heart with words of success and you give them expression through your mouth, you are sowing seeds of success. And in Genesis 8:22, the Bible says, ” While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest…shall not cease.”
Until you speak success words, you can’t see or enjoy success. But by the way some people talk, no matter how hard they work, they can’t succeed. This is because despite the fact that they are great givers and diligent workers, they sow seeds of failure with their mouths, and the Bible says: Read Mark 11:23 from your Bible.
When God gave Joshua the success formula in Joshua 1:8, He said, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth …” There are many great doers, but poor talkers. So, in spite of their great doings, they still remain small.
In the world of the spirit, your mouth is what gives expression to your choice — “For he shall have whatsoever he saith “, whatever he doeth not withstanding. God regards what you say as the conclusion of your expectation.
Remember when the children of Israel were about entering the land of Canaan? God had promised to give them the land, Yes! In fact, that was why He took them out of Egypt, to take them into a land flowing with milk and honey. But just as they were about entering, the people made their choice with their own mouths.
Read Numbers 13:31 and Numbers 14:2-3 from your Bible.
What did God do?
Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Read Numbers 14:28-30 from your Bible.
You can’t enter into a land flowing with milk and honey talking failure and poverty. You can’t keep saying words such as “You see the state of the country and the economy now? You see how devalued the naira is to the dollar?” and expect to taste success. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! It sets on fire the course of nature (James 3:5). Your mouth can burn off in a very short time all that took you a long time to heap up.
No matter how many people are angry with me, I will never talk failure and poverty. When poverty was my next door neighbour, I didn’t talk it, how much more now that it has left me alone. Until you talk success, both publicly and privately, you will never succeed. So stop all those secret tales of woe now! I command your tongue to be sanctified, so it will not block your access into the land flowing with milk and honey.
Let me show you other ways by which the words you speak affect your success rate.
Read Proverbs 12:14 and Proverbs 13:2-3 from your Bible.
That is, the rewards of the work of your hands are released through the words of your mouth. What your hand does will only be delivered to you through what your mouth speaks. So, if your hands are busy working and your mouth is destroying the good results through speaking negative words, then you will never taste success. Stop saying what is happening; rather, start emphasizing what is written in God’s Word!
