PRISONERS OF WORDS
Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. (Proverbs 6:2)
“If you’re not happy with what you have in life, check out what you’ve been saying.” – Kenneth E. Hagin
Many people are prisoners of their words; what they say is holding them hostage. Proverbs 6:2 in the Jerusalem Bible says, “…through words of yours you have been entrapped.” The Basic English version says, “…the sayings of your lips have overcome you.”
James 3 tells us that your tongue will determine the direction and destiny of your life. You are a believer in the Word of God. You must speak what you believe for victory to be yours.
The confession of your lips that grows out of faith in your heart will absolutely defeat the adversary in every combat. When you hold fast to your confession of faith and allow those words to register in your spirit, Satan cannot win!
Confession: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21) I will not be held captive by my words any longer. I will speak the Word of God concerning every circumstance and situation in my life. I am a believer in God’s Word. I have the victory!
