No Bad Days

You are the prophet of your own life. Say it: I AM the prophet of my own life. As a prophet, your words carry weight. Those who understand this are careful about what they say.

There’s no such thing as a ‘useless’ word. Your words will always return to you with a corresponding manifestation. Say it: My words will always return to me with a corresponding manifestation.

Knowing this, Jesus declared, “every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matthew 12:36). What seems idle in our eyes isn’t so in the vibrational or spiritual ream. Therefore, we all must reap the fruit of our words. The “day of judgment’ isn’t some future date far removed from now. No. We’re dealing with the consequences of our words right now, right here.

You’re not having a bad day because the day is bad. You’re having a bad day because you’re saying and thinking the day is bad. You can’t have a bad day, but you can create a bad day with your thoughts, words, and feelings. There are no bad days.

A day is just that, a day. It’s not the job of Tuesday or Friday to make you feel great. How you feel is your job, not the day’s. Understand, feeling is a choice.

Regardless of prevailing circumstances, you can choose to feel wonderful or choose to feel miserable. Neither hormones, the weather, your kids, your boss, nor the black cat can make you have a bad day. The day is what you make of it. You make the day. The day does not make you.

You are the boss of your feelings. Say it: I AM the boss of my feelings. As Rev. Frederick Eikerenkoetter used to say, “tell your feelings how to feel.”

Every day you wake up, understand that you’re the creator and prophet of your day. Don’t just hope for a good day. Create the kind of day you want. Be intentional about it.

As you get up from bed, take a few moments to speak, feel, and think positively about the day. With feelings of gratitude and with your eyes closed, you can say, for example:

 “I bless and sanctify this day. I call this day good. I feel grateful for this day. I feel wonderful. I am having a wonderful day today. I welcome [open your arms wide], accept and embrace all the blessings of love, joy, happiness, health, prosperity, and money that God has for me this day. It is so.”

You may not control what happens in the day, but you can always control how you feel about what happens.

Say good things about your day, no matter what. Use your prophetic power to steer your life in the direction you want. The more good you speak, the more good you’ll draw to you.

No more “I’m having a bad day.” Say, rather, “Goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life.”

Love & Light

Power in the Seed

Daily Devotional | Day 237

“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8:11, NKJV).

One of Jesus’ famous parables is the Parable of the Sower. In today’s opening passage, Jesus tells us that the seed in the parable is the word of God. The Lord reveals an amazing truth about His word. And that is, God’s word is functions as a seed. It possesses the characteristics of a seed. Every seed in life produces fruit of its kind. Apple seed produces apple fruit; tomato seed produces tomato fruit; grape seed produces grape fruit, etc. Every good thing in an apple is programmed into the apple seed. The same applies to all seed bearing plants. The principle is simple: Sow the seed and the fruit shall follow.

The word of God is the vehicle of creationIt contains the answer to every problem. It contains the divine program for all life. Every blessing God has for you is contained in the seed of His word. No wonder the devil doesn’t want God’s word to take root in people: “Those by the wayside are those who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved” (Luke 8:12).

Seek the word of God and give it a place in your heart. The answers you seek are in the word. The fruit you want to see in your life (whatever it is) is in the seed. Get hold of the seed. When you get the seed in you it will do what the word was sent to do. Take care of the seed, and it will take care of you. Discover the power in the seed of God’s word.

May the Lord command His blessing upon you and your household. In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Speak Clean, Stay Clean

Daily Devotional: Day 197

“When he had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand: Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man” (Matthew 15:10-11).

The words from your mouth say a lot about you. Your words also say a lot about the condition of your heart, for as Jesus says, “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). As the mouth is, so is the heart. A sound and upright heart will produce wholesome and edifying words; while an evil heart will produce evil words. It is impossible to distance yourself from your own words, for your words are the external expression of your internal condition.

 When Jesus started His public ministry, he showed Himself to be the Interpreter of God’s Law. Up to that time, some of the high-ranking religious teachers in Israel had corrupted the purity of God’s Word by mixing it their own man-made ideas. They taught and presented these traditions as doctrines which had to be obeyed. It’s similar to what you observe in some religions and churches today. That’s not surprising, given what Solomon said, “there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9, ESV).

The Scribes and Pharisees complained when they observed that Jesus’ disciples did not wash their hands before eating. Jesus would have none of their criticism, so He took the opportunity to set the records straight. Jesus wasn’t against hygiene. He was against how the religious authorities conveniently set their own regulations (in this case, regulations of hygiene) over and above the commandments of God, thereby imposing unnecessary burden on God’s people. In the opinion of these religious teachers, eating without the washing of hands defiled a person. This leads us to today’s Bible passage where Jesus corrected their erroneous beliefs.

Jesus says, “Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” This statement contains a powerful revelation about spiritual matters. Let’s focus on the last part of what Jesus said, i.e. what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a person. This means, your condition before God (defiled or undefiled) isn’t based on matters of hygiene regarding food and drink. What can defile you is what comes out of your mouth. When He talks about what comes out of your mouth, Jesus is referring to your words.

The Greek word translated “defiled” is koinoō (pronounced KOI-NO-O). The word means to make unclean, common or profane. What Jesus is saying is that watch your mouth, because bad or evil words from your mouth can make you unclean, rendering you defiled before God. As a Christian, you want to be clean. God says, “Be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16). God is clean and He wants you clean as well.

Based on what Jesus said, your words play a vital role in determining whether you are clean or unclean. The Lord has made you clean through His Word and the precious Blood of Jesus. Don’t change that. When you speak, use mouth filters. Just as we have air filters in our vehicles and in our homes, use filters when you speak. Let your words be guided by the Spirit of God who dwells in you. Speak in a way that keeps you clean and edifies people.

As a child of God, avoid cussing, cursing, murmuring, trashing, bad-mouthing, gossip, slander, grumbling, muttering, and obscene or bad jokes. You may think these things are harmless. The truth is, they are not. If Jesus says your words can make you unclean, it means they can influence your destiny. Moreover, recall that no unclean thing will enter heaven (cf. Revelation 21:27). Next time you speak, remember what Jesus said and use filters. Speak clean, stay clean.

The blessing of our heavenly Father come upon you and remain with you today. Amen.
