I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Did you know that with your words you can either bless your future or curse your future? Your words have creative power. If you want to know what your life is going to be like five years from now, just listen to what youre saying about yourself today!
Too many people go around saying, Ill never get well. Ill never get out of debt. Its flu season. Ill probably get it. This marriage is never going to last. Then they wonder why they dont see things turn around. Its because theyre calling defeat into their future. Theyre calling in mediocrity. Dont let that be you! When you get up in the morning, no matter how you feel, no matter what things look like, instead of using your words to describe your situation, use your words to change your situation. Make a declaration of faith by saying, This is going to be a great day. I have Gods favor. Hes directing my steps. When you do that, you are choosing life and blessing. You are calling in favor, increase and opportunities, and you will move forward in the life of blessing He has for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I commit my words to You today. I choose to speak good things over my life and bless my future. Keep me close to You and use me for Your glory in Jesus name. Amen.
