Topic: Your Future Is In Your Mouth
SCRIPTURE: Romans 10:6,8
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise … The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach
Everything you desire is already here. The car you want, that four-bedroom house you drive by and look at every evening, all the cash you can carry, you name it. God is not sending any of that down from His dwelling place or sending angel Gabriel to deliver it to your door. He has already given you everything you need. But you say, I need money. I need healing. I need my marriage restored. I need my permanent visa. Where has God given me everything I need?
The answer is simple: the Word is all you need. People want me to prophecy a house or a visa, but you have something better than me prophesying to you. You have the Word of God, which the Bible says is a more sure word of prophecy. In fact, prophets who are of God speak the Word of God.
The biggest condition of a word spoken to you by a true prophet is that you stay in the Word. The Word in your mouth is better than Jesus coming down from Heaven. That is the expression of your faith, and for those who deal with faith, the Word is enough. Only believe the Word of God and speak it in faith. Then, you would never need a prophecy.
I live a prophesied life. Armed with the Word of Truth, I decree things and bring them into being. I am not at the mercy of circumstances; I control them. As I speak in faith, the parliament of Heaven is backing me up, and the grace that is at work in my life will cause none of my words to fall to the ground.
2 Peter 1:19
