A prosperous life is forged in the power of the tongue… Focus upon blessings and ” … life (and fruitfulness in all things) resides in the power of your tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Spirits and people who wish poorly for you are pleased when you use the power of your words against yourself, and your loved ones. They wish to see you defeated, or simply wish more for themselves and those for whom they care. Thereby, keep your mind and related actions set on the good, the wise, the prosperous, the successful, the strong and healthy. Then always speak correspondingly favorably, and speak supportively, no matter how things appear.
Instead of saying, “I am always short of …,” say, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want for …” In this sentence, “want” means “to be in lack of”, so you are stating that God will not allow you to be in lack of any good thing, because His Word tells you so. By including His Word in your prayer (Psalm 23:1), you are acknowledging the validity of His Word.
Repeated verbal recognition of an adverse situation does nothing for you. So, start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) And, be strengthened physically, mentally, spiritually and via the fruits of every manner of the blessings of God.
