As I work my way through my surgery recovery, I have been more sensitive towards what I read on FB regarding the words which people use to describe their physical condition. I understand the whole concept about describing how we feel, at the same time I am aware of how often our feelings are not in alignment with the universal truths of God’s Word.
As Charles Capps mentions in his book, “The Tongue: A Creative Force,” far too often God’s people speak their feelings, rather than what the Word says about them. When we do we are speaking faith from a wrong perspective and invalidating what God says.
This is something I am continually working on. As individuals who have chosen to say YES to the relationship with God, through His Son, we have authority and power as His children through His Word. This does not mean we deny what may be happening in our body. Rather we deny the right for its existence in our body as we claim ownership of God’s authority in us.
If we give credence and power to the illness, sickness and disease through the words we use we deny the power of God to change the situation. This is a challenge for many of us and a lesson I must remind myself about as well.
What you think, believe, say and intend matters, because it impacts your actions which determine the outcomes in your life.
