CREATING YOUR FUTURE THROUGH WORDS

Do you know what your future will be like?

You can know your future by just listening to what you are saying today.With your words you are prophesying your future.Your words have creative power, power to create your future.What you are experiencing today is the result of what you have said in the past. And what you say today will be what you will experience in your future.

People who are always talking sickness will see more sickness in their bodies.People who are always talking defeat and failure will experience more of the same in their future.

You have to realize that by your words you speak either blessing or curse over your future 

Right now things may not be as you would like it to be but you can start changing all of that by speaking how you would like things to turn out in future days.What do you desire?Speak it now.What do you want your future to look like?Start prophesying it today.Speak words of good health to your body, speak restoration to relationships, speak financial prosperity and promotion, speak favor of God and man, speak spiritual growth and on and on.With your words you are taking control over your life, for your words have power both in the natural and the spiritual realm.So bless your future with your words.

We were created in God’s image and likeness so we too can create our world around us.That doesn’t mean we have control over others but we do have control over how our own life turns out.

You must realize that it is not enough to think of good things happening to you, nor is it enough to just believe for some good changes in your life.Your faith works when you verbalize what you desire and believe God for. So you must take promises from God’s Word and declare them over your life and future.

Your words are seeds that you plant.Speak faith today and plant some seeds for future crops.Then angels will assist you to bring it to pass. 

Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. KJV

With your words you call for the things that you desire, 

Rom 4:17 …and calleth those things which be not as though they were. KJV

You can’t speak of things as they are if you want something different, but rather you must speak of things as you want them to be.Speaking of things as they are will bring more of the same into your future; more defeat, more failure, more sickness, more financial difficulties, more unemployment, more of the same. 

Your words have creative power for they are spiritual.So create victory with your words, create health with your words, create promotion with your words, and create favor with God and man with your words.

Start declaring, “I know things have looked bad for me but I know that with God’s help and the angels assisting me, things just cannot stay the same for me.God is working things out for me because I know He loves me and cares for me.I am not alone in this for I know that God is faithful and will not forsake me.”

You will need to stop complaining and start declaring things as you desire them to be.Complaining brings more of the same.Things just won’t get any better.The more you talk about being depressed, the more depressed you will be.The more you talk about being overweight, the more overweight you will be.You need to stop complaining and start declaring how hopeful you are today, how faithful God is, how easy it is to lose weight, and on and on. 

The bible says, Ps 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,KJV

If you are going to receive the benefits of Christ’s redemption for you, then you have to say so.Ps 107:2 doesn’t say, “Let the redeemed of the Lord think so.”And neither does it say, “Let the redeemed of the Lord believe so.”No, it clearly say, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.”

It’s important what you think and believe but it is when you speak something is when the supernatural happens.There is a connection between what you say and what God does.

Ps 91:2-4 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.4[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. AMP

You say and God does.You have your part and He has His.

Find scripture promises and speak them out, such as these, 

3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. KJV

Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. KJV

Speak that God is your Healer, your Physician, your Miracle Worker, your Protector, your Counselor, your Provider, and your Provision.Speaking it gives God the right to get involved.

When you don’t speak faith words, that means that no faith is released in your situation to bring about the changes you desire and then you can only expect naturally what would take place in your situations:calamity, desperation, loss, financial failure, sickness and disease, just more of the same.

You are not to speak of things as they are but how you want them to be if you are serious about change.

Joel 3:10 …let the weak say, I am strong. KJV

Since God declares that you were healed by Jesus’ stripes, then you must declare you are healed right now, present tense.Since God declared that all of your needs are met, then you must declare they are met right now, present tense.

The bible tells us that we eat the fruit of our words 

Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. KJV

The bible tells us that we set the course for our lives by our words, 

James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.NIV

Are you where you want to be today?If you aren’t and you want things to be even better, then you will have to start declaring a better future with your words, start declaring your end from the beginning. (Isa 46:10)

Maybe you have been discouraged because you have been speaking faith words over your situation but you still don’t see any change.Here’s a scripture that will help you, 

Heb 10:23 So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.AMP

You have to be determined you are not going to speak negative words.You have to be determined that no matter how long it takes and no matter how it looks, you are going to stay in faith and not complain and know that God is behind the scenes working it out.

If you have big dreams, then you must continually declare and give thanks for extraordinary favor of God and man; because every day you will have things show up that try to make you believe nothing is happening and nothing is changing.Gives thanks for doors opening, supernatural intervention, divine appointments and connections and that the Lord directs you so that you are always at the right place at the right time.

You will see the future that you desire if you will declare it.You will say and He will do. (Ps 91:2, 3a, 4a)

The S.E.E.D

The ADVANtage

Every seed produces a fruit, every fruit produces a seed. It means that there is no end to life, no end to greatness. Every great milestone has in itself a potential milestone.

The challenge we are facing is that we are looking to pluck the fruit rather than sow the seed.

This is your S.E.E.D;

S= Sight, you need to see not look, you can’t feature in a future you did not picture.
E= Education, it simply means you need to learn, acquire knowledge. If God said His people perish because they lack knowledge, it means the seed to live is in knowledge.
E= Exceptional/ Excellence, if you do what others do the same way they do it, you get the same result, so do it differently going an extra mile.
D=Diligence, Prov.22:29, have you seen a man diligent in his business? He will stand before kings and not mere men.

Sow your seed and you will pluck fruits of greatness, it lies within you… When God said let there be greatness and there is ‘YOU’… 
Don’t forget, its for your advantage

PEACE BE STILL

I would like to share today on how God speaks and calms the storm.

Mark 4:35, …let us go over to the other side. Mark 4:37, and there arose a great storm of wind… 

For most of us, we have taken the giant stride in moving towards fulfilling our purpose, we know where we are headed and we are really sure we are going over to the other side… but… the storm arises, we are faced with challenges and really in need of the storm to settle. Doubts begin to fill our minds and we are unsure if we are really on the right track. The storm was so great that the ship was full.

Are you so overwhelmed by what you are going through at the moment? Are you doubting the direction you are in?… Jesus arose and rebuked the wind saying “peace be still” it means that God still speaks even in the storm… He speaks through His word assuring us of an expected end(Jeremiah 29:11) 

This new week, as you journey over to the other side, be conscious that you also can speak and calm the storms in your life just as Jesus did…

“I speak peace into everything that concerns me… Peace be still…I’m going over to the other side… I am Triumphant”

Don’t forget, its for your advantage.

TESTIMONY

The ADVANtage

In every school calendar, there’s always a period of lectures and the period of tests and exams. Some of us get scared at the time of tests and exams, ranting about our in-capabilities and how unprepared we are. 

Now, I am beginning to understand the spiritual aspect of the examination period. It means that I have stayed too long in 100Level and its time to go up. The time for exams suggest that its about time to be promoted. We need to understand that the test and tough times we are going through is the sign that promotion is round the corner. 

Testimony for me is a yoruba word; test ti moni(the test I had). So, what do I do when going through this seemingly hard time, I should rejoice knowing that faithful is He that called me and He won’t leave me without help… (1corinthians 10:13).

Friend, tough times never last, but tough people do, winners never quit… Hold on to God during your test and trials, your testimony is here… don’t forget, its for your advantage.

Courage

The ADVANtage

I woke up this Monday morning with an ’empty head’ there were so many thoughts flowing, yet it still seemed I was blank. I realized suddenly that I woke up doing the wrong thing- I was worried. I have been worried about how the day was going be, I had many things I wanted to achieve and it all overwhelmed me and made me weak.

In a moment, I snapped out of my misery remembering what has brought thus far and little by little my heart became lighter and I became strong enough to face my day.

You may have been in my shoes, having worries ‘thicker’ than mine but to face your day- this is what I did…

Nehemiah 8:10b, the Joy of the Lord is your strength
Psalm 37:5, commit everything you do to the Lord, trust him and he will help you
Philippians4:6-7, don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience Gods peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and mind…

This is the best way to have a great week… Don’t forget its for your advantage

Have a great week ahead.. God bless

CROSS ROADS- WHAT TO DO WHEN CONFUSED

Have you ever had those times where you were confused about the direction you should go in or your best next steps forward?

I know that some of the most challenging times were those times when I just didn’t have the answers. I knew something was “off” and needed to change, but I was unsure if what I was doing was going to get me to the “light at the end of the tunnel”.

I can remember exactly how heavy that felt. I was literally questioning everything and my mind would just run endlessly. I was confused and worried about the future and how things would play out totally overshadowed the day I was experiencing. But, as awful as some of those days felt, they left me with an important takeaway message –

ALIGN YOUR THOUGHTS
The battlefield where all the rage and war is taking place is in the mind which is the center of our thoughts. In times like this, we actually do not think straight because the anxiety fast-forwards the process. So, all I did was sit on floor in the center of my bedroom legs crossed inhaling and exhaling till I felt safe enough to think. It takes a conscious effort to think and most importantly to think the right thoughts.

Choose to overshadow any worries or uncertainty. This is an active process and you’ve got to be very deliberate about managing any worries. Don’t deny they are there. Let them rise to the surface, but then continually remind yourself that everything will work out. Create the good habit of focusing on what you know deep down — everything really will unfold perfectly.

DECIDE TO DECIDE
Not taking a decision on its own is a decision, so the best thing to do is make conscious effort to make a decision. If you only align your thoughts without been ready to decide then you have just stepped out as a sheep amongst the wolves because that same thought will devour you.

SEE GOD
God is always a factor in our lives, He know what we going through and He can calm our tempered mind.
I have compiled few scriptures that helped me, it can help you too.

(Proverbs3:5-6KJV) (5) Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

(Psalms 32:8 KJV) (8) I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
(Psalms55:22KJV) (22) Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

(Isaiah43:2KJV) (2) When thou passest through the waters, I {will be} with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

(Isaiah30:21KJV) (21) And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This {is} the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

(Philippians4:6-7KJV) (6) be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (7) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

BE PATIENT
Patiently wait for any answers or direction you are looking for, but make sure you are taking steps forward today by living it in the best way possible. Always remember that the way you create the future you want, is by living today in the best way you can.

Don’t forget… it’s for your advantage.
