We Say is What We Get
|The ancient Hebrews
(and ancient civilizations generally) understood that words
shape the world. We've lost sight of that truth in
modern times, and the effect on our lives has been
Christians nowadays are likely to get upset if some
Religious Extremist suggests that "what we say is what
we get." But thatís exactly what Scripture tells us!
It couldnít be plainer than in Mark 11:23 (NKJV): ".
. . whoever says . . . and does not doubt in his heart, but
believes that those things he says will be done, he will
have whatever he says." (As with all such Scriptures,

collective failure to speak God's will
Theories explaining the current paralysis of the
Church and the helplessness of its members are a dime a
dozen. But has anyone considered that the problem might be
our collective failure to speak Godís will
into the world?
Now, I know itís much more sophisticated (and easier)
to pretend that every ugly circumstance we face is
God-ordained, because He's moving in mysterious ways that
weíre too feeble to understand.
But on the contrary, the experience of this ministry is
that God works straightforwardly, according to
the spiritual laws of faith. And one of these laws is
clearly articulated in Mark 11:23. If we speak healing,
thatís what we get. If we speak destruction and death,
thatís what we get instead.
daily confessions like these
How often have we heard someone say, "Well,
my dad died of cancer, so I guess Iíll die from it
too." Dear one, if that sort of thing is coming out of
your mouth, you need to zip your lip!
Use daily confessions like these instead:
"I am the 'blessed of the Lord' according to Isaiah
61:9. I am healed by Jesusí crucifixion at Calvary. I have
been delivered from all the demons in my life because of the
Cross. Jesus took the shackles of my life upon Himself. With
His stripes I am healed and made whole. If evil forces
attack me, theyíve already lost the battle."
"All my children are taught of the Lord, and great
is the peace of my children. My children are blessed because
the Word says that the children of the righteous are
words are shaping your world
"Our entire household is covered by the Blood
of Jesus Christ--our cars, our finances, our children, our
dogs and cats, and everything else that concerns us."
"No weapon formed against us shall prosper, and any
tongue that rises against us in judgment, we shall show to
be in the wrong."
Add your favorite Scriptures. Say them aloud daily. And
do it in the confidence that your words are shaping
your world, bringing healing, protection,
deliverance, and blessing into your life and the lives of
those around you.
