10 20 10 Wednesday
The words we use everyday and how we use them can and will have a major affect on our destiny. We need to speak to the situation, the mountain, the circumstances rather speaking about it.
I am not saying that we should never talk about our problems and situations, but when we spend the majority of time rehearsing the circumstances they will simply grow stronger and stronger. What we spend our time thinking and talking about becomes our focus. We will move toward what we are focused on. There is a time to pray about the mountains in our life, but at the same time there is a time to speak to them. I am not understating the power and need for prayer, but it is also Biblical to speak to the mountain in your life. Melissa and I speak a blessing over our marriage, home, and family each day. Then we also pray together each day. There is a balance, but take time each day to speak to your mountain. Speak to the root of the situation. You may not see the desired results immediately, but they will come in time. Don’t lose hope in life. Don’t lose hop in your marriage, your job, your family. Don’t give up in your school, with your friends, and in yourself.
