There is a difference. God’s Word is life.
Proverbs 4:20-22 tells us so… My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
The devil loves to hear people say things like:
- My marriage will never succeed.
- We’ll never get out of debt.
- These kids are driving me crazy!
- My husband will never get saved.
These kinds of words are just what your enemy wants to hear! He is standing ready to help these things come to pass. Life and death are in the power of your tongue! (Prov. 18:21)
On the other hand, when we agree with God’s Word and speak those positive things out of our mouths, we open the door for The Lord Jesus to do those things that only He can do.
What does God have for you…just around the corner?
