The LORD has been showing me various levels and reminds me that words are powerful and they can be creative like our great creator God!
But he had me go a bit further in my prayer time, telling me words are like “containers” and they can pour into, pour out of, dump, flood, pour negativity, release cursing with hatred and many numbers of scenarios.
We in God must learn to be angry, yet do not sin. God isn’t denying that your situation is real and bad, but He wants us to learn to react His way according to His word with others, to create a positive path now and for our future.
God wants us to learn to speak and be victorious over the enemy’s language, so that we won’t react to his threats or react to respond to people negatively.
“We must learn to “study to be quiet” and work with our own hands.” To Study to be quiet means it takes effort.
It takes developed discipline and we are supposed to be disciples of Christ. (One of the fruits of the Spirit is discipline/self-control (Corinthians 13).
I am not saying it is easy to become disciplined but for those of us who want to grow and produce the fruits of the Spirit in our lives, this is not a bargaining tool, it is a matter of necessity, fact, and foundation, not fiction.
We must learn “to be still” and know He is God. He is a jealous God and desires our total being!
Is it easy? No! But once you get the edge of alignment with God, you will develop these fruits through abiding and learning to wait on God and it will get easier to obey and easier not to retaliate according to the flesh towards people.
When we face these tests, they prove our spiritual condition to ourselves. God already knows our condition but he wants you to know your own condition!
I can say this, that when you learn to respond directed according to the Holy Spirit, you will learn to depend on the Holy Spirit in prayer and answers that you must pray before you ever say!
Our flesh bucks up because we think we are entitled to give those people a piece of our mind! Especially if it is someone we are having issues with we want to respond and retaliate in the flesh!
The flesh always resists the Spirit and we must remember it will take effort to be quiet and pray and only say what the Holy Spirit leads us to do.
The enemy knows if we learn to become a master craftsman using our tongue with God’s Word, that he will lose ground in our lives.
“And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you,” 1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,” 2 Timothy 2:14 KJV.
Why do you think the enemy wants us to respond to situations with negative words?
He is opposite of God and will do all things possible to keep us trapped in our world using our own thoughts and words.
We have the power to cancel the enemy’s assignments! When we realize the revelation of how powerful God’s word is through us, it is so powerful and awesome!
However, we must also be aware that we become a target of the enemy and we are a force to be reckoned with. We need our sisters and brothers to pray for us. There is no shame in getting help.
When we get serious about dedicating our lives to changing our words and reactions then we will be taken seriously by the enemy and man!
God wants to train and teach us how to control environments by walking out our lives in the spirit realm. God’s word in us carries supernatural power to change lives and situations!
The enemy wants us to respond his way as he provokes us to wrath so that we react towards people by spewing out words of defeat that will curse and affect us and others.
It only takes just one person to break the cycle! Everywhere your feet go has been giving for you to possess.
Take hold of every environment you find yourself in and take dominion and tell the devil to go! Choose to be the peacemaker and be the mature one and stop the cycle of chaos and discord.
Instead of responding to the negative words and vibes, counter it with God’s word or use silence. Pour out ice water over the enemies plans!
Our silence often speaks volumes! Just realize how powerful it is that we carry within us the author of peace and assurance.
We counter the negative, chaos and discord with kind words and actions or we act like it has no affect and we pray for them and that drives the enemy away!
Once we know the truth it sets us free! The enemy has no more foothold when we surrender and let God fights our battles.
Our battle is not with flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.
Words create our path and circumstances why?
Because the world was created by HIS Word. Heaven and earth shall be passed away but HIS Word will never pass away. We have been created in Christ for good works.
We are his workmanship. Learn to be silent and listen as you abide you will hear many things.
This is a very serious teaching beloved. If this has convicted you or stirred within you, get serious with God and doing some serious fasting and prayer to become sensitive and seek God to help you with these issues.
God is concerned with our words and learn to be aware of everything that will come out of our mouth. For everything good is created by the father of lights!
Everything that is created is by HIS Word! We have many tests and trials in life to prepare us for God’s destiny and purpose.
God creates in us what we lack and as we are learning to love and obey him, and finally to KNOW HIM and HIS Voice, Nature, Character, experiencing his unconditional love, and learning to love him as a child yes, but also learning that he loves you as is.
Come as you are to Jesus, don’t wait! Come as you are and the Holy Spirit will teach you all things.
Becoming refined truly takes time. For many years even though trial day and night come, and there are so many times of drought and long wilderness experiences. All those times were my greatest teachers!
These times of branding my behind that I am sealed and stamped and branded forever as His. However, the elements convinced me and not hearing him while going through a valley and dry season is where our lessons truly began.
I write these decrees in the Name of Jesus Christ and in His authority and through His power.
The Angelic troops stand ready to dispatch these decrees to the heavenly realms to the rulers, and authorities, and to post in the King’s Palace (Revelations 2-3, Ephesians 3:10, Esther 8:10,13).
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
