Have you ever noticed that negative people who only speak about how bad everything is in their life end up leading miserable lives? These people are unwittingly or unknowingly speaking “death” over their lives. Positive people, who speak words filled with optimism and hope, are speaking “life” over themselves and end up leading happier, more successful lives. Our words and our thoughts create our reality.
What we focus on becomes bigger and more powerful in our minds. When we think on something long enough, it becomes part of us. Eventually, we act out on those thoughts through our words or actions. When we speak the things in our hearts, we are prophesying over ourselves. If we are going to prophesy our future, we need to make sure it is filled with life and what the Lord desires for us.
