Change What Youre Hearing 02 October This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth.
Have you ever been frustrated with yourself…because of what you hear coming out of your mouth? Jesus said that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45). If youre focusing most of your attention on natural thingswatching secular television, going to the movies, thinking about worldly matters, worrying about your job and familythen thats what youre going to talk about. What you need to do is refocus your attention. Turn your attention toward Gods Word and keep it there. In everyday terms, Joshua 1:8 says, Talk the Word. When I say talk the Word, I dont mean just every now and then when youre feeling spiritual. I mean continually. In Deuteronomy 6:7 (New International Version), God said you should talk His Word, when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Thats pretty much all the time, isnt it? At home, at work, in the grocery storewherever you are, keep the Word of God in your mouth. Romans 10:17 tells us that faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. So when youre continually talking about what God says, what Hell do, and what His promises are, youre going to be growing in faith because youre hearing the Word from yourself all the time. Isnt that exciting? You can change what youre hearing. So start today to fill your heart with an abundance of the Word. Then listen as your mouth gets in line with what God says about you and your circumstances.Isaiah 52-53; Psalm 54The Word of God does not depart out of my mouth. Joshua 1:8
