Happy New Year everybody (I know its February LOL), but since I haven’t blogged at all this year Its allowed (Lol). So this blog is about speaking life (positively)into situations, it is something I am currently practicing/ dealing with also it can be as deep as you want it to be. But most importantly I hope it speaks to you!!!!!!! 🙂
Personally I was (still am) excited about 2016 from last year because I wanted a fresh start, a new me. One of the reason is that in 2015 I was miserable half of the time, because I was speaking negatively every time something went wrong. It got so bad that even when things were good, I couldn’t enjoy the moments, I was always scared that something bad was going to happen soon.
So my friend (BONBON) kept saying to me Jen, stop being so negative, this is why things are always going wrong, try to be more positive. I decided to take her advice and I tried to be more positive, it wasn’t and its still not easy but I can definitely say I am a lot happier. The bible talks about speaking of things that are not as though they were, you can find this in Romans 4 vs 17. When God created the world and everything in it how did he do it? He spoke! Speaking life (positively) is extremely important, especially when we cannot see a way out or when we do not understand what is going on.
God spoke into Abrahams life and he called him “the father of many nations” but, holl up just holl up!!!!!!!!!!! how can this be? He had no kids, he was old and his wife was past menopause (menostop). But the bible says “(For we walk by faith, not by sight” if we are always looking at the way things are then we cannot have faith and it makes it harder to please God, (Hebrews 11 vs 6) and to even speak life. so the question is how do I speak life;
- Your mind needs to be renewed!!!!! How? By spending time reading and meditating the word. Check out this blog if you struggle to read the bible, (http://breakfastwgod.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/the-simple-practical-solution-to.html?spref=fb).
- Be around people that are positive.
- Speak Positively always (just try).
- Never pray from a place of fear or doubt, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” 2 Tim 1 vs 7.
Also the bible talks about building yourself in your most holy faith “ But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” Jude 1 vs 20. This could mean worshipping by singing, speaking in tongues, dancing to the lord or simply listening to worship music till you are no longer afraid.
I hope this made/makes sense, and I pray this encourages some one to SPEAK LIFE.
