When Mouth Speaks, Mind Listens 08 May There is no truth in him [the devil].
You might as well face it. As long as you are on this earth, the devil is going to talk to you. He has a right to test your faith by bringing you circumstances and lies to see if youll receive them. But when he does, refuse them. Cast down those fearful imaginations and every thought that is contrary to the promise of God (2 Corinthians 10:5). Say, The Lord is on my side. I will not fear! Then open your mouth and speak the Word of God. Use it to contradict the devils lies. If he tells you, You wont have enough money for your house payment this month, dont just struggle silently with that thought. Speak up. Say right out loud, I will have the money for my house payment. I know I will because my God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus! I found out a long time ago that when my mouth speaks, my mind has to stop and listen to what its saying. Maybe you wont fully believe that confession the first time you make it. But if youll keep saying it, youll keep hearing it. And what you hear, youll believe. Eventually your faith will be so strong and your heart will be so full, youll start speaking with total confidence. Thats when the devil will run for cover because fear has no chance when faith comes on the scene. Faith is the original. Fear is the counterfeit. And the real overcomes the phony every time.1 Samuel 30-31; 1 Corinthians 14The Lord is on my side. I do not fear! Psalm 118:6
