“And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
(Luke 17: 13)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In Bible times, when someone was diagnosed with leprosy, such a person was pronounced unclean, and the person had to keep screaming ‘unclean’ (see Leviticus 13 vs. 45) to ward of clean people.
When the ten lepers saw Jesus, they did not scream ‘unclean’; the cried for mercy. They didn’t say what the law told them to say; they spoke differently; they changed their confession and got resounding results.
Friend, watch what you say. Be careful with words that come out of your mouth. Don’t speak according to your negative circumstances; don’t confess the negative reports of men; don’t say what the law wants you to say; don’t say what men want you to say.
Say what God wants you to say; declare God’s word concerning you; speak in line with what you want God to do for you; speak in line with your positive expectations; let your words be consistent with your expectations from God.
When men think you should speak negatively, shock them by speaking positively; when they think you should speak in doubt, speak the language of faith; when they want you to reaffirm the bad news in the air waves, speak like a true citizen of God’s kingdom.
The lepers changed their confession when they saw Jesus, and their lives were turned around. If you speak in line with the Jesus that is able to turn things around, then great and mighty things will happen for you and in you.
If Jehovah is involved, your positive confession will yield results.
Pray With Me: Lord, I choose to speak in line with Your word; I won’t declare the report of men, in Jesus’ name!
