My wife would never agree with me; nonetheless she has the gift of a New Testament prophet (or I guess the better word is prophetess). The New Testament prophet:
3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. (1 Cor. 14:3 NKJV)
This is a description of my lovely wife.
The “BUT” we speak becomes the life we live
By Diana Houk
Posted November 5, 2011
What we think on is what we will speak, and then eventually will become a heart belief. So, we can believe an untruth (lie) and think it to be the truth.
As I was thinking about a situation this morning & how sometimes women especially respond when ask a question, like how are you doing? Most always women will say; doing just fine, BUT then continue telling (speaking) doubt & unbelief as to what is really happening in their life.
What is happening can be truth (really happening), BUT it opens the door to the enemy to use what we have spoken against us. Our mouth & the words we speak set in motion future things to come.
Our words we speak are a DOOR!!! What we speak is our belief that we trust in, depend on, & will take us to a place we might not want to go to (when it is doubt & unbelief).
We either speak what is happening (when we say “BUT”) that opens the door to the enemy, or we speak the word of God as Jesus did in every situation, “Jesus spoke the word, & he was the spoken word manifested in the flesh”.
What we look at, listen to, speak out of our mouth, DOES BECOME A HEART SET (belief).
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
This scripture is saying; what we think on we will speak. So we decide we either speak “the spoken word of God” over every situation, or we speak doubt & unbelief when we add the BUT TO WHAT WE ARE SPEAKING.
So watch what you think on, & watch what you speak out of your mouth. Because again, it will set in motion your future!
