Religion: Proverbs 6:2. “You have been trapped by what you said,ensnared by the words of your mouth.”
We are a product of prophecy. The life we live today is not necessary dependent on our parents but what we prophesied some years ago. What we spoke to ourselves. Its results are being manifested in our lives.
Check the tenses in the opening verse. It says you have been trapped by what you said. It means the person is having experiences today because of past words.
In the same way that you are trapped, you can also undo it through the same Words. This can be done by confessing good words today which would have an impact in the future. Get your freedom by making a freedom confession.
Jesus warned against idle words. The word Idle is Greek word Argos which means lazy or shunning the labor which one ought to perform.
Why should God count EVERY Idle word?This is because the idle Word work against God’s active Word.”I can’t do it” “I will never get better” “I am just average” are some of Idle words. Remember God’s Word is active. Therefore idle word neutralizes the power of God’s Word and makes the Word of no effect. Heb 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit, and joints from marrow; it is able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart.”
In Luke 1 Zechariah spoke an idle word which would have blocked the Birth of John the Baptist. God stopped his mouth because it would have had a negative impact.Luke 1:18. “Zacharias said to the angel, “How can I be sure of this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.”Luke 1:20. “Behold, you will be silent and not able to speak, until the day that these things will happen, because you didn`t believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.”
The Jews had their traditional words which once said would make the Word of God of no effect. These were idle words. Mark 7:10-11,13 “For MOSES SAID, Honor your father and your mother; and, Whoever curses father or mother, let him die the death: BUT YOU SAY, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; he shall be free… Making the word of God of NONE EFFECT through your tradition, which you have delivered: and many such like things do you.”
You need to speak only what agrees to the Word. Don’t speak based on your feelings or condition of life. We are defined by our maker. Speak as defined by the owner. Agree with His Word and never oppose it. Whether seriously or jokingly, avoid idle words that would ensnare you because with them you are ruining your future by short circuiting the power of God’s Word on your life.
The Word of God is working in me. I agree with every Word. I am defined by His Word. I operate as per His Word. My life is moving from glory to glory. In Jesus Name. Amen. Feedback and prayer 0888326247
