Day 12: Make a W.I.S.H. – the power of our words, part 1

Day 12: Make a W.I.S.H. – the power of our words, part 1

Good morning fellow Extraordinary Mummies and Daddies, Caregivers and Friends!

Today, during this week of Promise, is a day I want you to write down in your calendar. Because your life is going to change- starting today!

I know that the day I was taught this truth and God revealed it to my heart, I changed forever! It wasn’t an immediate change, nor was it instantaneous! I had to work at it. I had to retrain my brain, my body, and mostly: MY MOUTH.

No, today’s post is not going to be about our amazing Make-A-Wish trip to Australia. It is a little acrostic I have made up to help you remember an amazing and powerful truth. Yet another weapon we have against this horrible “thing” whatever your “thing” is.

What I Say, Happens. W. I. S. H.

This is not some new-agey “Secret”- get it, Secret? This is actually something Jesus taught his disciples all the time. It is an amazing truth that boils down to this:

We speak things into existence. What we allow to come out of our mouth, actually gives life to someone, or something- OR it brings death to that someone or something.

We SPEAK things into being. We are made in the image of God himself, right? How did he create the world? He SPOKE it into existence. How did Jesus calm the storm? He SPOKE to the storm. How did he raise the dead? He TOLD them to get up.

Don’t think you have this capability?

Think again…

JAMES 3: 2 says this: We all make many mistakes. If anyone does not make a mistake with his tongue by saying the wrong things, he is a perfect man. It shows he is able to make his body do what he wants it to do.

WHAT?

READ that again… “It shows that he is able to make his body do what he wants it to do!”

Freedom, you’re pulling my leg- it really couldn’t be that simple..

What if it was?

What if you knew that every word that came out of your mouth was CREATING something? Would you change the things you say? Would you ever let a “curse” or a negative thing come out of your mouth again? Knowing that whatever you said out loud would actually happen?

Keep reading…

Verse 3 says…  “We make a horse go wherever we want it to go by a small bit in its mouth. We turn its whole body by this!” 4 Sailing ships are driven by strong winds. But a small rudder turns a large ship whatever way the man at the wheel wants the ship to go.

5 The tongue is also a small part of the body, but it can speak big things. See how a very small fire can set many trees on fire. 6 The tongue is a fire…

BY GOD, I WILL USE THAT FIRE TO IGNITE HEALING AND LIFE IN MY Family’s BODIES, in their SPIRIT, and in their SOUL!

Those of you that have met me in person know that I do not say “My daughter Vivia has a life-threatening chronic illness called Juvenile Dermatomyositis.”

I say something more like, “My daughter is conquering Juvenile Dermatomyositis.” Am I a convoluted idiot? On the contrary, I am a calculated, precise, careful person who will not allow the words escape my lips that in any way agree with (give my amen to) this cursed illness. As a matter of fact, I speak DEATH to the Dermatomyositis that is attacking my daughter’s body. I speak intelligence and discernment into her immune system, I speak strength into her muscles. I speak peace into her being.

Are we battling it? WITH EVERYTHING WITHIN US, and WITH EVERY WEAPON WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN!

Is the ship of your life plowing away with the tossing of the waves in a direction YOU DO NOT WANT IT TO GO?

Stop using your words to describe your situation, and use them to CHANGE to your situation!

Does that horse of your life refuse to go the way you are wanting it to go?

It’s time to bridle it- and REFUSE to speak negative things. If you are just bursting at the seams to “vent”, take it to the ONLY person who can change it- GOD HIMSELF!

The bible has given us a HUGE key here- basically it’s telling us, if our life is out of control, the way to turn that massive ship around IS TO START utilizing the weapon we have been given for our GOOD, and start using it ONLY for GOOD.

Still not convinced?

Come back tomorrow for even more…

Who will stand with me, to commit to fasting negative words the rest of these 40 days?

What would that look like? Think about it- we’ll commit tomorrow. Ask God what that would look like.

It just may change everything.

JAMES 3:

“We make a horse go wherever we want it to go by a small bit in its mouth. We turn its whole body by this!” 4 Sailing ships are driven by strong winds. But a small rudder turns a large ship whatever way the man at the wheel wants the ship to go.

5 The tongue is also a small part of the body, but it can speak big things. See how a very small fire can set many trees on fire. 6 The tongue is a fire…

My GOD-

Thank you for revealing this amazing weapon that I have against the horrible situations I have going on in my life right now. Thank you for equipping us with all we need to grow, succeed, be victorious, and conquer.

Lord, like David said in the Psalms, place a guard over my mouth that I may be reminded before negative words escape my lips. Help me to use my words to CREATE life, and not speak Death.

Right now, I declare that ______________________ is healed and whole, and lacking nothing. I declare that this illness will not stop the plans that you have for him/her. I also declare that it will be used for good, because you said so, and I believe you!

In Jesus name,

See ya tomorrow!
