Got this on my email this morning. It was totally related to what I posted yesterday about power in declaration, the power of your words.
Just sharing with you guys :)
Don’t Get Snared
“You are snared by the words of your mouth...”
(Proverbs 6:2, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
the 1990’s, Jose Lima was the star pitcher for the Houston Astros. One
season, he won 20 games and was considered one of the best pitchers in
the league. When the Astros moved from the Astrodome to their new
ballpark downtown, the fence in left field was much closer than the
fence in the Astrodome. It favored the hitters and made it more
difficult on the pitchers. The first time Jose Lima went to the new
ballpark, he stood on the mound, looked at the fence, and the first
words out of his mouth were, “I’ll never be able to pitch in here. The
fence is way too close.” Sure enough, he went from being a 20-game
winner to a 16-game loser. It was one of the biggest negative
turnarounds in the history of the Astros. What happened? He prophesied
don’t get snared by the words of your mouth. When negative thoughts
come, don’t speak them out; instead, speak life. Speak hope. Speak
blessing. Speak what you seek! Speak the Word of God so you can move
forward in the victory He has prepared for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
today I submit my thoughts, my words, and every area of my life to You.
Help me, by Your Spirit, to speak life according to Your Word. Help me
to stay aligned with You on the path of blessing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
