Devotion: Agree with the Word of God


Proverbs 6:2. “You have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth.”

We are a product of past prophecy, past Words. 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.Matt 12:36-37 “I tell you that on the Day of Judgment, people will give an account for every idle word they speak. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Why should God count EVERY Idle word? This is because the idle Word work against God’s active Word.”I am too old to do that” “Nobody has ever achieved that in my nation or family” “I can’t do it” “I will never get better” “I am just average” are some of Idle words. They oppose the Word of God. They are not heavenly vocabularly. Remember God’s Word is active (Heb 4:12). Therefore idle word neutralizes the power of God’s Word and makes the Word of no effect.

In Luke 1 Zechariah spoke an idle word that he and his wife were too old to have a baby 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.”

Don’t speak based on your feelings or condition of life. Don’t agree with the worldly language. Use heavenly vocabulary. 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. No idle Word will come from my mouth. In Jesus Name. Amen
