What God Says Is True

What God Says is True

Most of us have been taught to speak negatively about ourselves rather than positively. We do it in so many different situations for instance when we are maybe asked to serve in the church on say stewarding or tea duty our responses usually sound like oh I don’t know if I could do that or perhaps we want to go and check with a friend or family and see what they think because our opinion is more important than what Father God says about us and one of the things He tells us in His word is that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us Amen  (Phil 4:13).

When we speak like that about ourselves rather than what God has written and said about us we step right into the trap that is snaring and stealing the truth of Gods word from us and satan’s sole purpose is to deceive us. Remember Eve Adam and the apple, he just causes us to doubt, he throws out a titbit to see if we will bite and take up the bait.

Let’s look at a couple of scriptures and see how we can use them in prayer: 

Acts 17:28 For in Him we(I) live and move and have our (MY) being as certain also of your own poets have said. For we(I) are (AM) also His offspring.

Gal 3:14

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the gentiles through Christ Jesus that we receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

We could pray this scripture like this:

Thank you, Lord, that according to your word I have the blessings of Abraham and have received your Holy Spirit, amen.


Proverbs 16:23

The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips.

We can practice getting into speaking more positive about ourselves by meditating often on what God thinks of us and our outlook on what we think about ourselves will start to change little by little and we can gain a Humble but Godly picture of who we really are in Him.

Joshua 1:8 instructs us to meditate on this book day and night and

1st Thessalonians 5:17 says pray without ceasing.

Oh dear impossible we might say well nothing is impossible with God and all we can do is start where we are at and build ourselves up, therefore if we get a couple of scriptures that we can mediate on and put them on the fridge or in our phones that they are there ready for us to meditate on and as they take hold of us then we can add more.

When we speak harmful things about ourselves satan uses that to deceive us and when we start to speak words of sickness, poverty, family strife, overweight, growing old that puts him in control and we grieve the Holy Spirit as it tells us in Ephesians 4: 29 + 30

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

Message Says

Watch the way you talk. Let nothing dirty or foul come out of your mouth Say only what helps, each word a gift.

Don’t grieve God. Don’t break His heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most important part of your life, making you fit for Himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.

So can we ask ourselves if what is coming out of our mouths is grace, is uplifting to others or is it doom and gloom about what ever our circumstances look like in the natural.

God can do nothing to change our circumstances when we are not in agreement with what He is saying. Because anything other than His word is a lie.

It’s really about our faith trust and knowing that He can and wants to bring about those changes we so need.

Oh, how he loves us

Ephesians 1:3 says that we are blessed with every spiritual blessing.

However, do we really want to chase after these blessings? Father has given us a free will and we must in choose what is most important to each one of us.

Satan knows we will get what we say so is happy for us to stay there in that pit of doom and gloom because we are then not trusting Father for the outcome.

These examples of using scripture help us in every day to speak Gods word over ourselves because we are so precious to Him and if we are not right with Him then how can we bless others with that wonderful Love and freedom that He has given us.

Meditating means

  • Allow the Holy Spirit to make Gods word a reality in your life
  • Ponder how it applies to you
  • Agree with God on what it says about you
  • It may not look like or feel like it, just get in agreement with it in faith
  • See yourself as God sees you and say it aloud
  • Realise that His word is true
  • Act on it just do what His word says

Psalm 141:3

Set a guard O’ Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

So can we take some steps of faith today and put our confidence in God and what He says in His word about us.
