Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. “For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay. But My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul. Hebrews 10:35-39.
“Awake, O north wind, and come, wind of the south; make my garden breathe out fragrance, let its healing odors flow forth abroad.” Song of Songs 4:16.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Stand on My Word and you will see it come to pass. Do not give up, do not draw back, just keep going till it comes to pass. It takes faith and patience. Do not grow weary of well doing. Walk in love. Walk in peace. Entrust your life to Me and let Me help you make the right decisions. Do it right this time. And trust that I will lead you, guide you and arrange things to work together for your good. But walk in keeping with the nobility of who you are in Christ.
Do not toss aside your confidence, it has great reward. Watch yourself and watch your words. Everything is listening to what you say—molecules, atoms, angels, the cloud of witnesses, Me, and also the demons and the devil. All have ears and all react to what you say. Your words matter. They matter more than you know because you cannot see all that is taking place when you speak, from your inner self to all around you. And what you say even keeps reverberating after you have departed from this life. Have you never read: “By faith Abel offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying about his gifts, and through faith, though Abel is dead, he still speaks.” Hebrews 11:4. Your fruit will endure. People will remember what you said, good or bad, for many years after you are gone from this life. And you still find quotes from great men posted, their words live on.
You are constantly speaking, either in your inner man to yourself or through your mouth and actions into the world. It is what you do more than anything else. And yet many people are not organized and do not put their words to work for them. In fact, many speak and think words stout against their best interest. And do not think just because you did not give voice to a thought I do not know it as if you spoke it, for before a word is on your tongue, I know the whole of it. By your words you are acquitted and by your words you are condemned. Death and life are in power of your tongue. And that is entirely up to you. Weigh your words and if they are idle and have no weight of glory, discard them as you would clutter and rubbish. Why clutter up your life and the lives of others with garbage?
Your words should be like an opening flower, flowers only open from a bud to give forth sweet fragrance and beautiful colors. Open your mouth to show beautiful visions of vibrant color and sweet fragrance to all. Buds stay closed until they are mature enough to share beauty and sweet fragrance. “Like a lily among the thorns, so is my darling among the daughters.” Song of Songs 2:2. “Awake, O north wind, and come, wind of the south; make my garden breathe out fragrance, let its healing odors flow forth abroad.” Song of Songs 4:16. The inner garden of your heart should be filled with the sweet fragrance of love, which is better than the finest perfume, that you breath out by your words. You should be spreading the fragrance of Christ everywhere you go. Just as My apostle Paul spoke by the Spirit: “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” 2 Corinthians 2:14-15.
What do you want to see in your life? What do you have a vision for? Begin seeing it in your heart and speaking it with your mouth. Everything is listening and it is your words that frame your world. I send My Word to heal and deliver you. Why won’t you say it and take advantage of so accessible a treasure?
Do you recall the story of Jairus and his twelve year old daughter? She became deathly ill but her father had a vision of healing. He went to Jesus and spoke it: “My little daughter is at the point of death; come and lay Your hands on her, so that she will be saved and live.” Mark 5:23. He had it all planned out with the result he desired. And Jesus ran with the vision of Jairus. But before they got to the destination, news came that the daughter had already died. Jairus had a choice. He could give up his vision and draw back, speaking stout against his vision or he could go on and push forward to the fulfillment of the vision. Jesus told him, and he tells you who think your vision is not coming to pass, “Do not be afraid, only keep on believing.” Mark 5:36. Jairus had to decide whether he would give in to the fear and give up or keep on believing despite what had happened in the physical realm. He chose to go on. He made a new declaration: “My daughter has just died; but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.” Matthew 9:18. He took a step up to a higher level of the spirit realm. And what was the outcome? Of course, you know it. My Word works. Jesus pressed on with Jairus, for Jesus is the author and finisher of your faith and taking the child by the hand, He said to her, “Talitha kum!” (which translated means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). Immediately the girl got up and began to walk. Mark 5:41-42. And Jesus told them to give her something to eat.
Do you see? Death and life are in the power of your tongue. Jairus could have declared his daughter dead and left it there but he refused to declare anything but life. “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20. Moses told the people that many years ago, but most of you have not taken it seriously. Many say words mean nothing and talk is cheap, but they are in error. Words mean everything and made everything. My Word is living and working, sharper than any two edged sword, it is laser like and goes right to the very heart, right to the joints and marrow, right to the root of the problem. And My Word is real, you know that, for My Word became flesh and dwelt among you and your reached out and touched My Word and He reached out and touched you. And He still does, Christ in you, your hope of glory.
I love you. I made you speaking spirits for a reason. Use your words to frame your world so you may live a life of beauty. And always speak My Word with faith, for it is not an idle word for you; indeed it is your life. And by My Words you will prolong your days in the land I am giving you. Deuteronomy 32:47.
