Sir Godfrey Gregg
I am amazed at the number of born again, Holy Ghost filled, tongue-talking Christians who stay in agreement with hell’s lies and speak those curses without hesitation. Many even know about the power of the tongue and yet say when challenged on these statements, “I’m being honest. I am just being real.”
Yes, when we talk like that, we are being real – carnally minded. That’s not walking in the Spirit, and I assure you there is no peace in speaking the devil’s lies over our life (Romans 8:6). We say, “I’m just telling it like it is” No, we are telling it the way we accept it – expressing what truth is to us, and how we see ourselves.
Oh, what joy awaits when we walk, talk, and act in line with the Word of God! Let’s lay down this low life and reach for this higher, exalted abundant life and rule and reign with God’s blessing. His Word will elevate us to new dimensions, new victories, and new wonders.
Brethren, we simply must change our behaviour and expressions. If we stay centered on the things of this earth – on our aches, pains, and the trials of life – we will become depressed, because life without God saps our spirit.
Even more, when we are in opposition to the Father and become strangers to the covenants of promise, we are basically without hope and God is not working in our lives (Ephesians 2:12).
We need to begin saying, “This is what is happening, but God…” Or, “Yes I know it looks bad, but God’s Word says…” The moment we speak these words we start bringing life to a situation – for His Words are spirit and they are life. Faith is in our mouth!
