Summary: We need to stop speaking defeat in our lives, God is tried of His children saying, "I don’t know what I’m going to do, when problems come our way. God want you to stop speaking defeat in their life. He want you to know that there is Power In Your Mouth,
We’re living in a time, where the enemy is going to and from, seeking whom he may devour. The devil is busy, the devil is not taking a coffee break, and he’s not on vacation. The devil recognizes that if he’s going to bring down, as many Christians as possible, he has to work over-time, not only is he working over-time, he’s working triple time. And why you’re on your job, in church, or even sleeping at night, the devil is trying to plot up something to get you. That’s why before you go to work; to church, or to bed, you need to pray over yourself. Because if you’re not careful, you will have some bad days.
You see the enemy is trying to corrupt you, “He don’t want you to know the truth”. In fact he don’t even like you, because when you made up in your mind that you’re going to serve God. The devil got real angry with you, (but turn to your neighbor and say, it’s to late now). I gave the devil his time, now I’m on the Lord’s side, and I’m not going back. You see, a lot of Christians these days are not saying anything; we just let the devil walk all over us. But you see, when you have gone through HELL, and High Water, and you know God brought you out, you don’t mind saying something, you don’t mind telling somebody how good God’s been or how He brought you out. But before you can say something, you must use what the Bible tell us to use.
6. A fool’s lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating. 7. A fool’s mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul. 21. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Lk.19:40. "I tell you, "If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
I know so many good church folks who are afraid to declare with their mouths what the Word of God says about them. But they will gladly and boldly talk about everything that doesn’t concern them, but for some reason or other, they are so afraid to confess what God and His Word says. If you don’t hear anything else I say tonight, please hear this. “There’s Power in your Mouth”! Let’s see what God’s Word say about this. I have three points to give you, and I will take my seat:
I. How to stop speaking defeat in our life:
a. Watch what you say
First of all, if you’re going to tell somebody something, you got to watch what you say. You can’t say just anything; to many people are speaking defeat in their life. God is getting tired of his children saying; I don’t know what I’m going to do when trails come your way, because when we get into trouble, that’s what we say. He said death or life is in the power of the tongue.
What are you saying, preacher? Well, the Bible says:
God’s name is a conquering name;
Philippians 2:10-11 say, “every Knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord”. So when the devil comes my way and start missing with me, I just put the word of God on him. When you speak the Word, you are actually putting God in the battle. Remember the battle is not yours, it’s the Lords, but God told us to defeat the devil by rebuking him. In order to rebuke him, you have to say something.
John 1:1 say, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
Gen. 1:1 said, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth”. In chapter 1 alone, you will find theses 3 words (And God said) 9 times.
John 1:14 says, “And the Word became flesh”, David said in Psalms 119:11, “thy Word have I hidden in my heart that I may not sin against thee”. The word hidden, in Hebrews means (Memorized) that mean you should have the word memorized in your heart. Why, because the word I memorize, is the word I utilize (say that with me).
You see when Satan attempted to tempt Jesus in the wilderness, he was trying to subdue Jesus mission to the cross. When Satan came up against Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus didn’t say, I don’t know what I’m going to do; He opened his mouth and quoted the Words of God. He said, “It is written”, so if Jesus can speak the Words of God, and He did say these things I do, you can do, and even greater. Then “Somebody in here ought to say something”! You see;
