September 11 The Victory Is In Your Mouth

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (Rom 10:8 KJV). As the Jesus hung on that cross, His confession remained positive, though in pain, He understood the principle of the spoken Word and the victory that it carries in it. In one statement, Christ summed up the things that He had done and accomplished for us. He said ‘…it is finished.’ (John 19:30). Those were His last words. The words were decisive and final. Believers must start walking in the finality of those words and live victorious lives today. The words meant the end of defeat for us, the end of sickness and failures. He paid the price on the cross.

Today we live in a world where we are bombarded with many things. It is easy to be carried away and run with the pace of this world. There are two main things that hinder us from experiencing the best in God. These two factors limit and keep us in a cage in which even the least of our potential will not be realized. We develop limiting mindsets that put Christ far from our reach. He is high up and cannot be brought down to deal with our situation. (Who shall ascend into the heavens and bring Christ down?).

We also fail to recognize the power Christ has. We have no idea how much He can do to turn our situations around. We think He is still with the dead (Who can descend into the deep and bring Christ up?) The book of Romans speaks of how in this day we increasingly need to put our faith in the Lord. There is a righteousness that comes because of faith in the Lord. Through this faith, we can overcome the two paradigms above. The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart. That is the Word of faith that is preached. The Word carries victory in it, if you confess it and do what it says; you will enjoy the victory that it carries. Be encouraged because you can overcome the challenges that surround you.

All you need to do is to raise the Word of faith. God has put tremendous power on our lips. When we speak, we speak oracles and things should fall into place and come into being. What have you been speaking lately? Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Pro 18:21). You are a sum total of the things you say. God is closer to you than your breathe, there is no need to descend or ascend, to be poor or rich, young or old for you to have access to this victory. The Word is in your mouth. The words that you say can change your life forever. Through words, the wise have been separated from fools and the successful from the failures. Words can change the destiny of an individual, organization or nation.
