“POWERFUL ABC’S” to strengthen us to ALWAYS BE COURAGEOUS
I was thinking about how death and life are in the power of the tongue. And the words we speak can positively or negatively shape ourselves, our life, and the people with whom we are directly connected. I constantly ponder on the reminders to guard our gates such as what we think on (ears), speak on (mouth), and watch (eyes). Words are powerful and they can either make us or break us. If the words that we speak do not help to comfort, strengthen, build up, or encourage us & others then we need to take inventory of what we are saying. This day moving forward let’s be encouraged to speak life over ourselves, our loved ones, health, finances, and even this nation. Our words can affect change for the better. Let’s believe who we are in God and think on those good things that speak life. The words that we speak from the Bible is able to heal, strengthen, guide, and bless us in so many ways. Here are a set of ABC’s that only takes about 2 minutes that if spoken in the mirror daily as you begin your day and as needed to remind yourselves of these promises throughout your day; will began to have a positive impact in your heart, mind, and on your life. It changes our perspective to see ourselves the way God sees us.

Don’t you feel better and stronger knowing that you are powerful and victorious in Him. Recognize you are more powerful than you know because GREATNESS is a part of your DNA. Do not settle for less than what God has deposited in you and equipped you to become. To see your identity in Christ encourage yourself in the Lord daily. Always Be Courageous because He causes you to always win. I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.~Psalm 34:1-2 This passage demonstrates to have praise on our lips when thing are going well. Also it means to keep praise on our lips when we have challenges. Our boast is in the Lord while standing strong and believing that He is well able to bring us through as more than conquerors. It is not about how we feel but in the midst of our trial we recognize that God is good and worthy of all praise. I’m growing and learning more and more that victory is in our mouth. And we must be careful what we declare aloud over our lives and situations. Again let us choose to speak life and watch how as we change for the better things connected to us also change for the better.
This is my command–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.~Joshua 1:9
