A-1 - Encouraged by What You Read?
Did you know that Jesus Christ has already secured your victory to overcome anything that Satan throws at you? He has. When you view your life through that lens, it takes the pressure off and frees you to walk confidently in the strength of the One who has already won. It even changes the way you talk. Instead of speaking in uncertainties, you can now talk with authority and hope. You can speak words of life.
 
You can speak words of life.
 
Words are powerful, after all. Scripture tells us that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). Every time you repeat a negative, defeating statement or speak a hopeless thought, you are handing Satan a stick with which to knock you down. Every time you say, “If things get better,” or “If God comes through,” or “I just don’t know if I’m going to make it,” you are giving Satan permission to defeat you. You are loading the bullets into his already emptied gun.

Rather, God says to use His Word and the strength found in it to speak life into your situation. Uncover and discover God’s perspective on whatever it is you are facing and speak these truths to God, yourself, others, Satan and his demons by the authority of Jesus Christ and in His name. Speaking something has great significance. Christ said He came to “proclaim release to the captives” (Luke 4:18) shortly before securing that release on the cross. He also instructed us to “proclaim (His) death until He comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26) each time we take communion. To proclaim something is to speak it, whether in words or actions. Speak life in Jesus’ name.
 
To proclaim something is to speak it, whether in words or actions. Speak life in Jesus’ name.
