Once we find what God’s word says, we must declare it to be true in our own lives. Yes! I do mean that we must say it out loud. We must say it out loud so that our own ears can hear us. We must say it out loud so that our soul knows that we are sure of what we have read. We must say it out loud so that our emotions can line up with what we are believing and confessing. One of the most important reasons why we must say it out loud is because our mind needs to focus on what we are saying. Because of all that we are feeling, our minds are probably wondering and focusing on negativity. We must say it out loud to interject the very thoughts that are causing us to spiral downward. Instead of … [Read more...]
