What We Say Matters

Strength for Each Day • Devotional Reading Plan Day 2. 
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” Matthew 19:26 NLT

What You Say Matters

There are two words we need to eliminate from our conversation when talking about our ability: I can’t. Don’t talk yourself into failure before you even try something. 

Many things look daunting to us, and indeed they would be if we wanted to do them without God. But with Him, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). He gives strength to the weak and weary, and in today’s scripture, we see that the prophet Joel said, “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.

What we say matters because we can talk ourselves into believing we can do something or believing we can’t.

Admitting that you can’t do something is all right as long as you add, “But God can do it through me.” You are not a natural, normal human being; you are filled with God’s Spirit. This means you have the supernatural ability to do anything God wants you to do.

When you face a challenge and feel inadequate and weak, instead of verbalizing over and over that you are too weak, say that you are strong by declaring, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV).
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 NLT
We want to say what God says about us, and He says we are strong!
Pray: “Father, even when I feel weak or inadequate, please help me to line up my words with what You say about me. You have told me in Your Word that I am strong in You. Therefore, I say in faith, “I am strong in Christ Jesus!” I am confident that You will reveal Your strength in me as I choose to follow Your lead. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
