“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21
The keys to a successful life as a child of God are:
- To know God; and
- To know oneself.
Knowing God helps us to know and understand our own identity. We are created in His image and likeness; therefore, we must see in ourselves elements of the character of God that is so fully described in the Word. As we may be the only reflection of God that some people may ever experience, we must be motivated to be transformed into the image of the Son, so that we can accurately manifest who God is.
We never have to be confused as to who God is because He carefully describes who He is in His Word and we don’t have to be confused about who we are because the secret to our existence – our very reason for being – is found in His word too!
If we take the time to study the Word of God, we will find the answers we are looking for!
The enemy tries his very best to get us to doubt who God says we are. He did it with Eve in the garden and he did it with Jesus in the wilderness. Today, he continues to do it with the children of God. But, don’t fall for his schemes and cunning devices.
In His Word, God says wonderful things about you and it’s time you really believe them and consistently walk in the truth of His word and experience the power that comes from knowing who you are in Christ. Confessing who you are on a daily basis will help you to align your thinking with God’s thoughts and that will refuel your spirit. As the difficulties in the world increase, you must combat negative reports with the truth. As you speak positively over yourself and transform your internal conversation with yourself, you will see positive change in every area of your life.
Remember, life and death is in the power of the tongue. What you confess, you will surely possess. Join us for the 30-day challenge of declaring God’s word concerning our lives and watch the Word of God transform our self-perceptions.
Try it. It works.
To your success!
