Mark 11:23, 24 promises us that when we ask believing we receive as we pray, we shall have what we say. I learned that early in life, but not how the enemy comes to snatch the words or promises from our hearts, that is what faith is believing what you don’t see yet.
And there you have it. Jesus was and is the Living Word, He was and is and sent us His Spirit. The Bible is full about what to say or not to say, I suggest a read through Proverbs. But the Bible is full of sayings and wisdom, and James reminds us to ask for it, and about how the tongue has to be tamed.
We have the ability to speak His words over us, and the gifts given by His Spirit as we grow in grace, we are to be mindful of Him and renew our minds in Christ, And while people love to brag, the Bible says to brag on Him.
Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.” 1 Corinthians 1:31
And that verse is repeated, and even a thought from Jeremiah. To boast about Jesus we can say what He says about us. You can do that by searching the verses that tell you who you are in Christ. That is a study all it’s own. And of course, we can praise Him. And even in difficult times, we can rejoice in the fact that He has seen us through before and will again.
For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom He predestined He also called, and those whom He called He also justified, and those whom He justified He also glorified.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things? Romans 8 29-31
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17
If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, ( sin ) we lie and do not practice the truth. 1 John 1:6
If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:10
So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6
And then there is a reminder to think before we speak from Ecclesiastes 5:2
Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.
The Bible is full of topics and always has something to say.
