THE RELIGION CORNER: Life, Death in the Power of the Tongue

This week, we are teaching the third principle called auto-suggestion which teaches how you ‘speak’ to yourself. Positive thoughts influence your subconscious mind, so speak in the present tense, and though you don’t have what you want yet, the affirmations reprogram your thinking. 

Mark 11:23 reminds us we must “Speak to our mountains.” In fact, it states in verse 23, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” 24 Therefore I say unto you what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” 

This principle is biblical, providing a plan to bring the principle of faith and auto suggestion/affirmation to life? It’s your chance to test the truth of His Word. He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all you can ask or think.

This teaching will help you “Walk by faith, and not by sight!” Learn to keep your heart trouble free.”  This system will reprogram you to understand exactly how to trust God and to live life by “praying without ceasing.” More importantly, it teaches you how to apply this third principle of affirmation, speaking to your mountain. 

What should you say as a daily reinforcement of the Bible? This is an excellent example: Say something like “I know that He will make me the head and not the tail.” You can also say, “My God shall supply all of my needs, according to His riches in glory!” Or “The Word tells me that He will open up the windows of heaven and pour me out a blessing I won’t have room to receive.”

There’s more … As you continue to recite the Word of God, add your own personal goals to your recitations. Write them out and repeat: “There is greatness within me.” “I am beautifully and wonderfully made, chosen to come forth to do a work for the Lord.” “The Lord is my shepherd.”

Tell a different story; stop talking about those negative things that have shaped your life thus far. Let it go! That negativity is a curse. God has blessed you!

The Bible tells us, “We are children of the light!” You are perfect in the eyes of God. It doesn’t matter about your body size, nor your race, color or creed. God made you, and you are indeed perfect, women especially, whether you have long hair or short, whether your skin color is light or dark. God did not make any mistakes

Make peace with who you are, and make peace with where you are. Live happily in the moment. All we have is today; tomorrow is not promised. But when you live happy in each day, you shape your future, and God can bless you. You will be showing Him that you are indeed walking in faith.

During your affirmation time, don’t speak words that hurt you and others. “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.” Speak life; don’t talk about negative things that happened in your life. Let them go.  You made it through the storm, and you’re still alive, you’ve got your right mind, and you’re stronger because of the problems you’ve faced and have overcome. 

Life is a downstream journey; just go with the flow. When you fight against the currents, trying to go upstream, it’s hard, it feels bad, and it is not the norm. Repeat daily, “I always go with the flow!”
