The Lord has been speaking this to me lately through His word: "you shall have what you say," and "you shall have what you desire." It is not that name it claim it type of doctrine that we once had in Christendom. It is more, whatever you believe in your heart will come out of your mouth, so put some good things in your heart and allow the Lord to put some good things in your heart, so they can come out of your mouth. Did you get that? The trouble with my last statement is that we don't know what to say sometime and we speak death most often over ourselves and over our own lives. I have been memorizing Scripture with one of my coaches I disciple (He and I are having a blast by the way), and Joshua 1.8 tells us,"this book of instruction (law) must not depart from your mouth. Recite it day and night. Be careful to observe all that is written in it. Then you will be prosperous and succeed in whatever you do." Did I get it right...look it up for me. :) Deuteronomy 6.6,7 tell us, "the words I have given you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you are in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Check again to see if I got it right! Get to the point Dee. Ok, it is that we MUST hide the word in our hearts so we can know the word, so it can come out of our mouths, so we can repeat it to our children and everywhere we go so we can carefully observe the laws of God and be prosperous and succeed in whatever we do! Now shout on that right there!!!! Now the pastor is coming out of me...if you never speak God's Word outside of a church setting, you are sinning...plain and simple! You are breaking God's law because I just told you that you are supposed to always have it in your mouth. Get that Word in you today and you will be changed forever!
