The key to personal growth is meditation upon God’s Word. But when we meditate upon God’s word, we have to use our mouths to speak it aloud. Remember, last week when we talked about God telling Joshua that the book of the law was to remain in his mouth day and night. Joshua 1:8 reads:
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it; for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. (Jos. 1:8)
Speaking God’s word has an impact that reading it alone can never have. Reading the word uses our eyes. But speaking the word uses our eyes, mouth, and ears. By using your mouth to speak God’s Word aloud, God’s word will get into your subconscious quicker. The Bible says, So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).
But be prepared to throw away some of your most cherished beliefs for this teaching. Don’t let your tradition or experience be the filter in which you reject this teaching. You must ask yourself will confessing the word get me going in the right direction or take me the wrong direction. I submit to you that it will get you going in the right direction.
The Bible says, to be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2). Furthermore, Jesus said we can have whatever we say (Mark 11:23). The Greek word for say is to confess. What we have become is the outcome of all that we have said and confessed in the past. What we will become is the outcome of all that we say and confess from this point onward. During the upcoming shows I will be talking more about speaking God’s Word. So, stay tuned in! It’s going to be life transforming! Please, don’t forget to share this podcast with others.
