Unfortunately, many people don’t know the awesome power that is in their mouths. As a result of their ignorance, they have used their mouths to curse themselves. Many people say lots of negative things about their families, business, and destiny which are working against them today. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21 that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
As children of God, we must be very careful of how we use our tongues, especially when things are difficult. The devil uses what we say to work against us. When we make negative confessions during times of discouragement, those words will affect us or our families in the near future. Whenever you are discouraged, disappointed, distressed, and depressed it is advisable that you spend time with God in prayer. Most times, when you don’t have the right word to say, you keep your quiet.
Here are five (5) negative things that you should stop saying about yourself and your family:
1. I Cannot Make It
God has destined you to make it in life. You should not use your mouth to declare that you cannot make it.
2. Other People Are Batter Than Me
Don’t use your mouth to declare that other people are better than you. Always confess positively that you will make it.
3. My Family Is Very Poor
Your family can only be poor when you say so. Even though things are not moving the way that you expect in your family, always be optimistic and trust God to make things better. Don’t confess that your family is poor
4. I Feel Like I Want To Die
Remember that life and death are in our mouths. When you confess that you will die, the devil will work by what you say. But when you confess that you will not die, God will work by what you say. You will not die an untimely death in Jesus’ name.
5. Bad Luck Is Always Following Me
Once again, the Bible says that goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. Whenever you confess that bad luck is following you, certainly bad luck will always follow you because you said it with your mouth.
In conclusion, no matter what you are going through, always see a positive side to it and always try to confess positive about yourself and your family.
