It seems that we all want more zing in our lives from time to time but how do we get it? Now don’t let your imagination run wild, I’m talking about getting it God’s way! That way we can enjoy it without feeling guilty.
Psalm 115:15 (KJV) 15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
2 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV) 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
The word blessed means empowered to prosper! That’s a blessing in itself!
Here we see that God has already blessed us with everything we could possibly need in this life but we don’t always recognize those blessings. So how do we jump start the blessings?
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Colossians 4:6 (KJV) 6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Almost everything we do is precipitated by the words of our mouths. We speak and then act. That’s where many go wrong. Their words are hanging them. What we need to do is to start speaking blessings over ourselves and our family. And since we are already blessed, we just have to jump right in the river and go with the flow: I have the best spouse in the world, the best children, the best friends, the best neighbors, the best employer, etc.
When you start making these confessions, you’re sowing seeds into your life and you will reap a harvest if you don’t quit or dig up your seed by speaking negatively.
This is a great way to live – salt your words with God’s Word and watch the changes it makes.
