Today’s one thing is: Speaking Like a Champion .
What would your life look like if you never spoke another negative word over your life this year? What would happen if you started speaking like a champion?
Definition of a champion: Supreme victor in a contest
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth: and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18:21 (MSG)
Words kill, words give life, they’re either poison or fruit-you choose.
Proverbs 15:4 (AMP)A gentle tongue with it’s healing power is a tree of life, but willful contrariness in it breaks down the spirit.
Matthew 12:34-37 (MSG)
“…words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.”
Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it.
Speak Like a Champion
2014 is going to be my best year yet!
I do not expect to fail. I expect to win!
I expect to have the favor of the Lord in every situation of my life.
I believe that I can do all that the Lord has called me to do and accomplish this year.
No matter what may come my way in 2014, I know that with the help of the Holy Spirit, I can and will make it through victorious.
I expect to grow in my walk with the Lord.
I expect to be used by the Lord.
I will not quit!
I will not back down!
I am moving forward!
I am a champion!
