It’s been a minute since my last entry. However the timing couldn’t be more perfect. The second installment of the ‘Mindset’ series for The KIRK ELIOTT Blog is about the way we talk. So the reason I say the timing is perfect is because I’m also reading a book called ‘UNFU*K YOURSELF’ by an author named Gary John Bishop. Also, I’ve read and reading again a book called ‘GOD’s Creative Power by an author named Charles Capps. Although very contrasting titles, ironically enough very much the same ideals! Watch what and how you speak to yourself!! These are the perfect reading materials to accompany Part 2 of my ‘Mindset’ series! So without further a due....WATCH YO’ MOUTH!
The previous post about MINDSET began with our thoughts. As I believe this is the substratum or foundation of starting a New Thing! Or going into a New Dimension. However, we can't just Think our way into a new dimension, we have to Say and Do!
So today we will discuss the SAY.
"You will have what you say" These are the words of JESUS from Mark 11:23
If I may use words from a book I enjoy reading called 'GOD'S CREATIVE POWER'...Christianity is called The Great Confession! Think about this for a second. It's the ABC's of/for being saved. Admit/Acknowledge, Believe, Confess...Romans 10:9-Amplified Bible (AMP) - 9 because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
So ironically enough, we have to open our mouths to confess...to say what HE says about us, but instead...we open our mouths and condemn. Not just others, but ourselves!
Proverbs 6:2 says - Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth. In essence, you have been trapped by the words of your mouth.
Now, back to 'GOD'S CREATIVE POWER'! Words are containers. They carry FAITH or FEAR! You speak faith, you produce faith. You speak fear, you produce fear.
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue - Proverbs 18:21. If we look at the book of Genesis and recognize that GOD Himself SPOKE the world into existence! Everything created came from the very mouth of GOD! And if we are created in HIS Image... how is it possible that we say the wrong thing about ourselves, or we say nothing at all! To drive this point home I will use two more quotes from "GOD'S CREATIVE POWER'..."For GOD's Word to be effective, MEN must speak it...No Word of MINE is void of Power, only powerless when it is Unspoken!!!!!!
WOOOOOOO-WEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! I'm preaching even if you don't think so! HAAAA!!! I'm definitely talking to me!
You literally speak life or death into your circumstances y'all! We can have what we say, but instead we say what we have! Let that marinate! 🤔 💡
Bottom line is this...We must get our minds right! When this occurs...we will think about ourselves the way GOD thinks about us. Then we will begin to say what HE says about us! And what HE says we can have! This will ultimately lead to what HE says we can DO!
I'm going somewhere ya'll. Bare with me as I get it together! I want us to grow together and flourish together! I encourage you right now to say what GOD says about you! As usual, I'm talking to myself. When I look at my children, especially my sons...I want to be the best example I can be! And though I fall short daily...I'm Glad I serve a Forgiving GOD that has spoken Victory over my life. Which means it's ALREADY been done! All I have to do is say what HE says, then I relay that to my family! It's IMPORTANT we understand this.
Watch yo' mouth!
I am an imperfect Ambassador of KING...HE's calling you too! LETS GO!!!
