Your DESTINY is in your mouth, so open wide and speak it.

Your destiny is in your mouth

You become great in your mind before you become great in life.

Thoughts and words are powerful because they influence our behavior and affect how we feel and respond to situations.

Our thoughts are connected to everything in our lives. And most of us are where we are in life right now because of how we think.

When we think a thought, it influences our actions, and our actions create habits. Then our habits reap character, and our character reaps our destiny.

When a thought enters our mind, we should decide if we should accept the thought or reject it, because unseen thoughts produce visible consequences.

If you understand the power of your words, then you won't speak carelessly. You'll be careful with what you say during seasons of struggle, disappointments, and tough times, and only say what you want instead of what you don't want.

When we say things without thinking about the consequence, our words can hurt us. But when we say things to ourselves or other people with prudence it helps, because wise words can help a person’s mental and physical condition (Proverbs 12:18).

“The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.”

— Proverbs 15:4 (NIV)

The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you. (Matthew 12:37). In other words, what you say will either free you from what you want to get out of, or it will punish you by keeping you in that condition or worse.

Our words are powerful enough to influence the atmosphere around us. Have you noticed when you're depressed, sad, or angry you can feel the tension in the air? Or when you're happy, excited, and joyful the atmosphere around you is light. It's because our words have power enough to affect the tone or mood of a place (Proverbs 17:22, Matthew 15:11, Proverbs 18:21).

Create the world you want to liveby speaking the Word of God over your life.

Although our tongue is small in comparison to other parts of our bodies, it has so much power over our lives. Just like how a spark can cause a great forest fire, our mouths can cause great problems or immense success (Proverbs 18:21). Your tongue may be a small part of your body, but as small as the tongue is, it has major influence over your life (James 3:5).

What you say steers your life where to go. It dictates the course of your life and determines how situations will play out, because where the mind goes, the person follows.

“Finally, brothers [and sisters], whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Philippians 4:8 (ESV)

Your thoughts become actions. The way you think can cause you to either succeed or fail. No matter how hard you try, you cannot act independently of how you think. If you're someone who thinks negatively, then you'll have more negative experiences than normal.

The Bible says it this way, “You have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth” Proverbs 6:2 NIV. You have allowed your thinking, which turns into words, to influence your life. If you're always thinking negatively, then that is the road you will travel down.

The advantage of reading the Bible is, you can take what God is saying about your life and bring it into reality. Also, the Bible will show you how unseen thoughts produce visible consequences.

Whatever God says about us, we need to be saying the same things about ourselves. And do not confess what you see, instead confess what you want to see. Better yet, confess what God wants for you.

Where the mind goes, the person follows. When wrong thoughts enter your mind, ask yourself some questions:

  • Where will these thoughts lead me?

  • Where did these thoughts originate?

  • Will these thoughts get me to where I want to go in life?

  • Will these thoughts build me up or tear me down?

You may be thinking "I cannot do it, or it's hard not to think wrong thoughts.” This is where God steps in. He is our helper, the great teacher, and He will guide you on what to do, every step of the way (Psalms 46:1; 54:4; Hebrews 4:14; John 14:6).

Anyone who has an encounter with God changes because He can change your perspective and give you understanding (Psalm 119:130, Proverbs 2:2-5, Proverbs 3:5).

As you begin this journey to change your life by changing your thinking, you will experience peace that goes beyond your understanding (Philippians 4:7).

We are in full control of our destiny. So, ignore the lies that whisper in your ear telling you are nothing, to give up, it's too hard, and I can't, and instead understand the position you're in, which is having the ability to speak God's Word into your situation and over your future.

Your life's beginning doesn't have to be your life's ending because you hold the key to your destiny, and it is in your mouth.

The call for salvation

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, His spirit will come to live inside you. This is one of the greatest blessings of salvation. You don't have to go through someone else to get to God, and He will live in your heart where you and Him become one, have a relationship, and you'll be able to know His advice of what to do in life.

All you have to do is make the choice of salvation by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus into your life by confessing that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that He came from Heaven to die for your sins (Romans 10:9).
