The power of positive speaking

Positive speaking is all the rage now days. Is it a new fad in Christianity, or is there real, meaty substance behind the claims of Joel Osteen, Joyce Myers, Charles Capps, Dr. Frederick Price and many others who seem to have jumped on the band wagon of teaching us to practice positive speaking in our lives?

The next question addressed to Mary, in the study "Seven Questions for a Pregnant Virgin" is, "How exactly did you become pregnant?" The answer is, "With the power of positive speaking."

Everybody knows that God created the universe and everything in it with His words, right? God said "Light Be" and light was! Is that not absolutely marvelous to think about? God's belief was spoken into being. His dream of a universe came into fruition through His words! Then, God said "Let us make man in our image..."


God created us in His image, thus with the power of positive speaking! There are two instances in the Christmas story that back this up. In Luke 19, the angel, Gabriel told Zechariah that his wife would have a son. Zechariah responded with negative words of doubt, because of his wife's age. He did not believe and his disbelief came out of his mouth. Apparently, his words were so important, so powerful, that Gabriel closed his mouth until after John the Baptist was born.

When Gabriel told Mary that she, too, would become pregnant, she didn't doubt. She asked only how this was going to happen, since she knew no man. Then came her famous response "May it be to me as you have said." You see, Mary's words, mingled with God's words, manifested into a baby boy named Jesus...

...Who grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men, and SAID:

Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.


I cannot "saith" this enough. I cannot "saith" it any better than Jesus did. If you believe in your heart that you are sick, and you talk about how sick you are - you will be sick. If you believe in your heart that you are a failure, and you talk about what a failure you are - you will fail.

"But," you say, "I don't feel well, how can I be healed?" Notice that Mary didn't wait until she saw results to believe and she could not possibly have based her words on her feelings. She must have been terribly frightened, but did she say that? No. She based her words on her faith that God would keep His word, not her circumstances or feelings!

Put the power of positive speaking into action. Turn it around. Belief is a choice, so receive God's word as Mary did, with faith like a child. Then, proclaim your victory out loud. Let the power of God's words within you come out! Shout it Ladies - all in your space - shout it. (Who cares what the neighbors think.)

Saith it - I'm a Child of the Most High God! Saith it - I'm a winner! Saith it - I'm healed! Saith it - I'm prosperous!

This is so important, that I will repeat it. What is behind the power of Positive Speaking? Listen to God's words and believe what he says. Speak that belief all into your world. You will have, whatsoever you saith. I don't know about you, but I feel better already.

Luk 1:45 "And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord." (NASB)
