There’s something to speaking the positive to yourself instead of the negative. There’s something to reprogramming your mind to only receiving good things instead of considering anything from a negative perspective. It’s reflected in your speech.
Satan tries to make us believe that positive self-talk is a bad thing. Its not real talk. Its fairy-tale land mentality. But to tell yourself good things is a good thing. Instead of feeding on only what you can see with your physical eyes, usually resulting in a negative outlook, to look at everything from the eyes of faith takes on a positive perspective. Changing your word and ultimately the atmosphere of your life.
For what reason do you think the Bible says that we’re to Count it all joy when facing of every kind of trial? (James 1:2) Because God knows if we lead a life weighed down by the negative instead of walking in faith by seeing the positive then we’ll miss out on being built up in order to mature in our faith. And that will hold us down and we will live under stuff instead of being More than conquerors through Christ (Rom 8:37).
Jesus is our freedom. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36).
When we draw close to God He draws close to us and He helps us to see whatever is coming at us truly for what it is. And no matter what we can decide to see our reality from a positive perspective and watch God turn things around for our good and His glory.
Challenge yourself to really pay attention to if you’re speaking good or bad over yourself and see what it’s resulting in. If you don’t like it then change your words. Think about how your outlook is when receiving information or perceiving others and challenge yourself to see things and people from a positive perspective. See if your life doesn’t change.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.
