TO LIVE LIFE FULLY , WE MUST GET OVER IT! ~~~ God chose us and He equipped us with the Truth. God got over our past, our mistakes, and it is His will that we SPEAK WORDS OF LIFE.
Follow Jesus, in His easy way, and walk surrendred to His will that we believe every word and carry it out in His unforced rythmn of grace. Listen to God, then listen to the words that depart from your lips. He is the Potter, we are the clay. He created the seed, He sows the seed, and we water the seed with our tongue, and we harvest the tomatoes that He grew! Halleluiah! God told us to HOLD captive every thought and consider the consequence before a word escapes and leaps off the tongue! Does it claim a promise? Does it bless the future? Will it be in harmony with God's tremendous power to transform? We have been GIVEN the power to speak words that heal a person or a situation. We were GIVEN the authority to call out demons and banish evil. We were drawn to God, chosen by God, and gifted by God to speak His word. "REMEMBER ME" The Holy Spirit is working ALL the time, without ceasing, and we were called by God to be His Ambassadors of good, to run the race and TAKE the PRIZE, to lead people in His way, towards the light and into the blessing. "God's Spirit spoke through me, his words took shape on my tongue." STOP blaming, STOP assigning emotions of how others may be feeling about you. STOP imparting doom by speaking of how it appears, of how it was, or words that whine about how it has always been. "Every word they speak is a land mine; their lungs breathe out poison gas. Their throats are gaping graves, their tongues slick as mudslides. Pile on the guilt, God! Let their so-called wisdom wreck them. Kick them out! They've had their chance." God speaks His will perfectly, He calls us to MATURITY in Him, that we are clear that He told us to TAKE the BLESSING, to claim our inheritance, and to speak words filled with FAITH in what is to come! "We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouths. If you could find someone whose speech was perfectly true, you'd have a perfect person, in perfect control of life. A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!" Kenneth and Gloria Copeland watched Oral Roberts, he modeled walking in the unforced rhythmn of grace as he consistently spoke words of faith, life and blessing. Ken confesses that Gloria often reminds him to "Get over it" and just speak words of life not woe, regret or sorrow! "This commandment that I'm commanding you today isn't too much for you, it's not out of your reach.... No. The word is right here and now—as near as the tongue in your mouth, as near as the heart in your chest. Just do it!" GOD talks to us straight, nothing is hidden, nothing is held back! He gives us the Truth and the choice to agree with Him, OR ~ He allows us, the gentle giant God He is, to continue holding tight on to our way of thinking, speaking, understanding. We burden ourselves with worry, fears and then live them out, and miss His blessing. Read this Word of God and guard your mind, hold your tongue, and DIGEST the truth into your soul! "Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God's Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. It's not at all fanciful for me to think this way about you. My prayers and hopes have deep roots in reality. So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover's life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God." Walk and talk while delighting in His UNFORCED rythmns of GRACE.
