Jesus, Himself, assures us that if we speak it with our mouth and believe it in our heart, we will have whatever we declare. Glory to God! That’s why I am asking you to decree what God has spoken – not what the situation looks like.
It doesn’t matter how gigantic the problem is, it will yield to our words! This principle, on the other hand, works in the negative direction just as effectively. For instance, we say, “We will never get out of this debt, every month we get deeper and deeper toward bankruptcy. I don’t see how we will ever get these bills paid off!”
By saying these words, the same principle of speaking and believing that could get us out of debt completely will multiply. It is simply because that’s what we are believing and speaking over the problem!
We believe that we are suffering insurmountable debt, and it’s getting worse. Indeed, we might be in debt up to our eyeballs, but declaring it is no road to recovery. Jesus said we will have exactly what we say! And James writes that if we want to change the course of our life, we must apply pressure to the rudder of our tongue. We must speak what we desire to happen.
