Speak To Your Destiny
Most motivational speakers and authors focus on what they describe as PMA or a Positive Mental Attitude which is the process of pushing out all negative thinking and focusing all your energy on the silver lining. I am a firm believer in positive thinking because I know that the opposite leads to less than ideal outcomes…but if you are currently caught in the negative and can’t seem to beat back those thoughts, what do you do?
This is a question many of us who’ve grown up negative have or are asking. The answer on paper is an easy one but in practice takes some conditioning.
It is in the power of what you say both out loud and in your head. If you believe as I do that God has a plan for your life which interestingly most people do according to a new Baylor University Study, then it is important…no it’s vital to speak to your destiny everyday. As the scripture in Proverbs says:
21 The tongue can bring death or life;
those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
Your destiny has life because it’s God’s plan for you and it’s an act of Faith to speak it into existence. If you walk around talking defeat then your result is sure to represent what you say because out of the heart the mouth speaks. Which is to say that whatever you say is what you believe to be true.
The good news is that the opposite can also be true; if you speak life over yourself, your circumstances and of course your purpose, even if it seems impossible or things aren’t going your way and even if right now you don’t believe it…over time by speaking life over those things you have no choice but to change what your heart believes about them. Then God can move in your life and propel you to your destiny.
Don’t be discouraged by the challenges of fulfilling your purpose; they are the tests we must go through to become what God has created us to be and aren’t meant to harm us (Jeremiah 29:11) but in fact they serve the purpose of strengthening us to meet the new challenges we’ll face when we’ve accomplished our current goals.
With every peak we reach there is a higher mountain to tame but if we attempt to tame the tallest mountain too soon we are certain to fail for lack of experience and without resolve be lost to our purpose all together.
My encouragement to you is to tell yourself where you are going and not where you are; remind yourself openly about what you will accomplish in living God’s plan for your life and when you meet challenges that seem too steep to overcome, put your trust in God and allow Him to overcome them.
We believe in you and know that with a firm reliance on God you can…you will become what God created you to be when you speak to your destiny and decide to never give up!
