This is not a continuation of my last post about friends. This is different.
Do you ever find yourself saying something like, “God, if I only had …” Or something along the line of, “I wish I had a …” I’m sure you have no problem filling in those blanks. You are not alone. A lot of people will “wish” they had something they feel they need or want.
What if you could speak what you strongly desire into existence? Guess what, you can. And how much would you pay for that? But wait, there’s more. A few years ago I heard a story of a lady who was up in her years of life. She decided one day she would start looking into the mirror and declaring, “I look younger every day.” Crazy? Perhaps. Until you hear the rest of the story. After some time, her friends and family started telling her that she keeps looking younger and younger instead of aging as she would in the natural.
When I heard her testimony I was intrigued. I knew the way God did it for her probably wouldn’t work for me, but the principle is the same, and here it is:
Speak, out loud, what you want, or desire.
Some call it making declarations, I think God calls it, “Speaking it into existence.” I started doing this. Whenever I would think of it I would stop and say out loud what I wanted. I’m not going to list them, because they are personal. What they are doesn’t matter, but what does matter is this; it works. The things I have spoken out loud are coming to past. They are coming into existence!
This is not the same as sitting in a restaurant and going over a menu selecting what you want. What you are declaring should be submitted to God, for He knows if this is a need or a want. Will this help you, or hurt you in your relationship with Him or with others. As well, this is not “name it and claim it” type of faith either.
The mouth is a very powerful tool. And the words that come out of our mouth are critical. In a nut shell, every time we speak, we are either creating or tearing down. We are building up, or destroying something, or worse, someone.
So a friend of mine, the other day, talked about wanting a friend to hang out with. His other friends have moved away, or have transitioned into new chapters of their lives. I challenged him to begin speaking out loud what he wanted.
I can only imagine God looking at him and saying, “One friend coming up!”
