As I sat with a close friend today during a play date, I realized that the “life” we live is created by us and us alone.
The words that come out of our mouth, the things we believe and the way we act will dictate the way our day, week, month … life will go. I caught myself saying things like “we can’t afford”, “I will never” or “I am not good at”. Who told me that??
For sure it wasn’t my Comforter, my Healer, my Provider…He says the very opposite. So why do these things come out of my mouth?? Why would I, one who carries the living God inside of me allow negative and untruthful sayings to fill my mouth? Do I want negative in my life? NO! Do I want a life full of lies? NO!
I left our play date today feeling defeated until I came home, opened my Bible and there it was … the very scripture The Lord wanted me to see:
But He answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4 NKJV)
I will live by what my Father says about me … I am loved. I have a destiny. I am chosen by God. He will supply ALL my needs. I have wisdom. He accepts me as I am.
I am free. I am a child of the KING!!!!
These truths I go to bed with in my heart and these things I will speak tomorrow.
