Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat is fruit.
These are just a few DAILY LIFE CONFESSIONS to SPEAK OUT LOUD – YES – speak them out over yourself – every time you are tempted to speak what the enemy is whispering in your mind. In 2 Corinthians 10:5, we are told to take our thoughts captive. Thoughts that enter our mind that do not conform to the truth of God’s Word have to be refuted.
- THOUGHTS BECOME ACTIONS
- ACTIONS BECOME HABITS
- HABITS BECOME CHARACTER
- CHARACTER LEADS TO DESTINY
As we think in our hearts, so are we. Proverbs 23:7
Perhaps, you don’t think this is necessary. But if you have ever battled fear or worry, or, if you were raised in a negative or abusive environment, speaking these promises of Truth over your life will be more than just encouraging, they will be life changing. Recently, in an attempt to pray over and encourage someone very near and dear to me, the Holy Spirit compelled me to take the time to write out these confessions. Hopefully, they will help encourage and remind you too of so many of our Heavenly Father’s LIFE giving promises of Truth.
