So what an amazing service at church today! We're learning about the power of the tongue...your words have power. OH YES they do folks! I've known this for a long time but when you sit under the teaching again it brings things up & I realized I wasn't doing so hot in some areas. Pastor said "most of us say what we have but God says we can have what we say". Powerful, huh!?! Well I strive to say what God says about me. This also means I have to spend more time reading His word & really meditating on what it says.
The very first scripture He took us to is 2 Corinthians 9:6-11. That’s actually one of the ones I have on my bathroom mirror to read every day. It’s the one I’m standing on for our financial breakthrough. From www.biblegateway.com 6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.”[a]
10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
OOOOoooohhhhh……if that doesn’t get you excited, what will? I’m excited to give. I love to give! But when I really meditated on this for the first time 2 years agao my faith was encouraged. Now I have something to stand on…to hold tight to when everything around me tells me something different I can say….NO WAY! Look what God says! I had to share this with you…hope it blesses someone.
