Practice Faith-filled Living

Did you know that the words that come out of your mouth today determine your tomorrow. The words that you speak today actually reveal your mind, your heart and belief system. Ask yourself, "What am I speaking over and into my life?" What are you allowing others around you to speak into your life? Did you realize that those you associate with, and the words they speak into your life also determine your future? If someone is speaking negativity and death into your life, you need to rid yourself of such a person. They are NOT your friend!  We need to stop allowing others to speak lack, discouragement, confusion, and death into our lives. When you allow this into your mind, you have given seed to those things. Put a stop to it!

Philippians 4:8 says, "Finally breathern, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

We need to temper our conversations with words of faith and hope. Fill your thoughts with only good things. When someone comes to you with a bad report about your friend, neighbor, your church or pastor, or anyone else, tell them, "I will not be a part of this, for you are sowing seeds that destroy faith." You may need to rid your life of some people who continually do this, for their words and actions are destroying your own faith. Take a look at those people and the fruit of their lives. Are they bringing unity, peace and fostering life... or are they bringing division, confusion, frustration and leaving a trail of broken people wherever they go? If they have had a pattern of leaving church after church over the years, always taking others with them... you have a person who is a lover of discord... which is an abomination in the site of God. We need to purpose to weed our lives of anything and anyone that hinders our faith. Speak life, not death... and receive life, not death.

Begin to speak and live in such a way that your are telling everyone around you what you are expecting God to do in your life. And never allow someone else to try to do this for you!
