10 Verses to Speak Over Your Life Every Day

10 Scriptures

In a previous post, we discussed how what we believe and are constantly speaking about ourselves and our lives is what we will often see happen, and how God wants us to believe what His Word says, speak words that agree with it, and see His promises to us come to pass. How can we do this?

First of all, before you can believe God’s Word, you need to take time to find out what it says. Secondly, once you’re spending time in God’s Word, one way to speak words that agree with it is to actually take promises from it and speak them over your life. Take a verse with a promise from God that you love, and declare what it says about you on a daily basis!

Not sure where to start? Here are 10 scriptures to speak over your life every day!

Standing Before God – “Because Jesus took my sin upon Himself, I am the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Favor – “God’s favor surrounds me like a shield!” (Psalm 5:12)

Wisdom – “I ask God for wisdom, and He gives me an abundant supply of it.” (James 1:7)

Health – “Because of the stripes that Jesus received when He was whipped, I am healed.” (Psalm 53:5)

Protection – “God keeps me from every kind of harm, and watches over me.” (Psalm 121:7)

Success – “Everything I put my hand to is blessed.” (Deuteronomy 28:8)

Finances – “God blesses me abundantly, so that I have all that I need, and can be generous to others at all times.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

Peace – “I am not anxious, worried, or stressed because I keep my focus on God, and He keeps me in perfect peace.” (Isaiah 26:3)

Joy – “I am not depressed or downcast because sorrow and sighing flee from me, and gladness and everlasting joy are mine.” (Isaiah 52:22)

Forgiveness – “God has forgiven me for all of my sins – so completely that He no longer even remembers them!” (Hebrews 8:12)

 

Believing, Speaking, and Seeing

Believing, Speaking, and Seeing
When you open your mouth to speak, what comes out? What do you words do you speak over your life? Is what you say in line with what God’s Word says about you, or does it go against His promises to you?

God created this world by speaking it into existence. We were created in His image (Genesis 1 :27), so in a similar way, the words that we speak create our world. A lot of what we see in our lives is a result of what we first believed, and then spoke. Proverbs 18:21 sums it up by saying that death and life are in the power of our tongues. The choices is ours as to which we want to experience, and we make our choice by what we allow to come out of our mouths.

Does that mean that if we say we are blue with yellow polka dots that our skin will instantly turn blue and spotted? That’s not what it is about! It’s not some kind of magic, it’s a principle God created to allow His promises to come to pass in our lives. Mark 11:23 explains this principle by saying that if we tell a mountain to move, and have faith and don’t doubt, we will have what we say. It all starts with what we choose to believe. God wants us to have faith in His promises, speak words that agree with what He says, and then see what He has promised happen in our lives.

Luke 6:45 says that we speak what our hearts are filled with. If our hearts are filled with negative beliefs that go against what God’s Word says, we will probably speak negative words and see negative things come to pass in our lives, instead of the good things God wants us to have. Because we speak and ultimately see come to pass whatever our hearts are filled with, we really do need to guard our heart against things that are contrary to God’s Word. What goes really will come out, show up, and determine the course of our lives (Prov 4:23)!

What do you want to see come to pass in your life? Choose to believe and speak forth God’s Word, and see His promises to you manifest!

The Words We Say

The Words We Say

Proverbs 18:21 tells us that in the power of our tongue is both death and life. How can that be true? Do the words we say really make that big of a difference?

Our words can affect people more deeply than we sometimes think. They can cause great pain and harm, or they can bring healing and encouragement, all depending on what we choose to say. Ephesians 4:29 says to speak words that will build others up, not tear them down. How often do the words we speak follow those guidelines?

In a similar way, the words we choose to listen to and believe about ourselves have a great impact on our lives as well.  How often do we let the negative things that others say about and to us affect how we see ourselves – words that go directly against what God says about us, such as “You’re not good enough,”  “You’ll never measure up,” or “You don’t matter?” The devil loves it when we believe these lies. They tear us down, and make it difficult for us to experience the amazing, abundant life God has for us. Instead of listening to the negative words of others, begin to focus your attention on what God has to say about you – that you’re His cherished, treasured child, whom He loves dearly. Allow Him to build you up with words of His love and grace!

The words that we speak over ourselves impact our lives as well. God created this world with His words, and we are made in His image (Gen 1:27), so in a similar way, the words that we speak change and affect our own little world. In Mark 11:23, Jesus goes so far as to say that if anyone tells a mountain to be removed and cast into the sea, they will have what they say if they believe and do not doubt in their heart. God wants us to use this principle of believing, speaking, and seeing what we spoke come to pass to see His promises manifest in our lives. However, if we are constantly believing in and speaking a bunch of negative things, what do you think we are going to see come to pass in our lives instead?

Death and life truly are in the power of the tongue! Our words really do matter – what we say to others, whose words we choose to listen to, and what we speak over ourselves. Begin to listen to what God says about you, speak that over your life, and use your words to encourage others!

Hearing from God

Hearing from God

Have you ever wondered if God really wants to speak to you? If so, why doesn’t He do it more often? And how does one begin to actually hear His voice?

Jeremiah 33:3 tells us that God will answer us when we call upon Him, showing us things we don’t know, and John 10:27 says that His sheep hear His voice. As these verses make clear, God really does want to speak to you! He wants to guide you, give you wisdom, and show you things that you need to know when you need to know them. To really begin to hear His voice, however, you need to take the time to listen to Him!

How often do we get so caught up in our busy lives that we neglect to spend time with God? And when we do spend time with Him, how often do we pause, just sit there for a while, and listen for His voice? Think about it like this – if a friend kept on trying to call you but you never picked up the phone, or if you were talking to them and never let them get a word in edgewise, how would you ever hear what they were trying to say to you? It’s the same with hearing from God. If we want Him to speak to us, we have to take the time to quiet ourselves and actually listen to what He is trying to say.

Do you want to hear God’s voice? If so, I challenge you to ask Him to speak to you, then take even just 5 or 10 minutes by yourself to just be quiet, and listen for what He has to say.  If you have a difficult time with this, try turning on some worship music to help you to focus on God, and what He wants to say to you.The more you listen, the more you’ll begin to hear His voice, and experience His guidance in your life!
