"If only you carefully listen to the voice of the Lord your God…"
(Deuteronomy 15:5, AMP)
I read in one of my favorite devotionals this week that there are two voices that compete for our attention throughout our day: the VOICE of FAITH and the VOICE of DEFEAT!
You have the choice daily in each circumstance, to which voice you will give attention.
The negative voices that tell us lies from our past, present or even future, send discouraging messages to defeat us daily. That negative voice may be louder, but you can override those thoughts and that voice. You can take away all the power of this voice by choosing the voice of faith.
The positive voice that gives us encouragements, lifting our spirit and filling us with HOPE and FAITH. Messages of truth that say "You can do all things through Christ ", "You are well able","You are more than a conqueror", "Your best days are yet to come."
When you speak faith, you are in agreement with God. When you speak forth defeat, you are in agreement with the enemy, who wants to rob, steal and defeat you thus winning your soul and thoughts turn to temptations and negativity. The moment you verbalize the thought, you give it the right to come to pass. We must choose to walk in the victory God has in store for us!
Joel Osteen says it best like this:
"God–talk brings God on the scene. Enemy–talk brings the enemy on the scene."
TO WHOM DO YOU CHOOSE TO LISTEN?
WHY NOT COME IN AGREEMENT WITH THE VOICE of FAITH & TRUTH?
CHOOSE to DECLARE VICTORY in each situation, DON'T ALLOW DEFEAT!
DECLARE FAVOR, BLESSING and INCREASE over your life and for those you are praying.
BIND every NEGATIVE, and RELEASE a POSITIVE counter attack.
Heavenly Father, Today and everyday, I choose the voice of faith and victory. I can do all things in Christ who gives me strength. I declare that today, I am rising up higher in You. Lord, forgive me for the times that I did not stop and listen for Your Voice and Your Truth being spoken.
I need a victory (over...........................) in Jesus' Name.
I bless and honor You in everything I think and do. I choose to fill my mind with Your Word, good thoughts that will defeat the negative battle for my mind. I am Yours and You are mine. May I find favor, blessings and victory in You! Thank You for all of Your Promises! Thank You for the full armor of God to protect me today! All glory, honor and praise to You! Be exalted and lifted up in my praises and words. I will listen and believe the VOICE of TRUTH
WHEN I STOP AND LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF JESUS
Why not take a moment today to STOP
leave us your prayer!
What area of your life is Our LORD speaking that you may need His victory over now?
Can we pray with you? (even anonymously)
