I hear people say that:
“I’m stuck in life, and I don’t see a way out, no matter how hard I try.” Or,
“I feel my life is like a yo-yo. One day I’ m very confident and powerful but the next day I’m depressed.”
One of my counseling clients, a young woman, recalled how her mother repeatedly referred to her as a lesbian when she was a child. As she grew up, she began having a same-sex attraction to other females. When she went through our deliverance process, the Lord gloriously set her free.
Another woman, with a degree in theology, found herself unable to speak in front of a church crowd because of crippling anxiety. This fear stemmed from the discouraging words her husband would declare over her whenever she attempted to do anything. She went through our deliverance program about a year ago and is now preaching the gospel, both locally and abroad.
Are there any potential roots of word curses or generational word curses in your life that hinder you from moving forward?
What negative things have you been listening that others are speaking over yourself and others?
Your Words Matter
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21.
A lot is at stake in what we speak today. Our tongue carries power.
What goes in your heart determines your speech
Matthew 12:34-35: “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth good things and an evil man, out of the evil treasure, brings forth evil things.”
Your words carry great potential to build or to destroy, to heal or to harm you.
Renew your Mind
Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Also, meditate on the things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtue, or on anything that is praiseworthy. Philippians 4:8.
What comes out of your mouth determines your future.
Let us focus on the twelve spies sent out by Moses to survey the land of Canaan. Ten of those spies came back with a negative report. They saw giants in the land and felt like they were grasshoppers in comparison. On the other hand, the other two spies, Joshua and Caleb, trusted in the promise of God and spoke the truth in spite of what they perceived. They alone believed, and declared, that the land had been given to the Israelites so God allowed them to enter the Promised Land.
Do you speak what you see or do or what you want to see?
Let‘s look at what happened to the woman who had the issue of bleeding for 12 years. When she heard about Jesus, she said to herself, “If only I touch his clothes, I shall be made well.” She believed in her heart, confessed with her mouth, and Jesus healed her immediately.
Do not underestimate the power of the tongue. Your words carry great potential either to build or to destroy, to heal or to harm.
If you struggle with strongholds of fear, fear of authority, anxiety, poor self- esteem, depression, anger, rebellion, or addictions because of the word curses spoken either by you or by others, pray the following prayer:
Father, I repent and condemn every negative word I have spoken over my family, others, and me. I repent for speaking any words contrary to your will, and I break the power of them in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I also break the power of word curses spoken over me by others and all the generational word curses. Amen.
You may need further counseling or deliverance ministry, but this declaration is a great start!
