Do you want victory in the spirit realm? You've got to speak it. As a minister of the gospel, my responsibility is to repeat what God says - not to make up my own theories. I didn't make up the rules. I must do what He says to do. I must say what He says to say. His Word is His will.

Look at the confidence God allows us to have in what we say when we speak His Word. First John 5:14 says, "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."

We must be Word-minded people. Word-minded people are steady because the Word of God is steady. Sense-minded people are ruled by how they feel as perceived by the five senses - what they taste, touch, hear, smell, and see. Sense-minded people are up and down. I call them roller coaster or yo-yo Christians because they are driven by their senses.

If the Word of God is what you believe, you'll be steady because the Word of God doesn't vary. God doesn't say that one day He'll bless you and the next day He'll curse you. The Word of God says it is His will to heal you.

Therefore, if you're attacked with sickness in your body, you're going to be steady because you know it's God's will that you be healed, set free, and live a wonderful life. You're going to be steady in your mind regardless of how you feel in your body if you are Word-minded.

You Get What You Speak
When people who are driven by their senses, wake up and feel good, they say, "Whoa, this is a good day! Man, I haven't had a day like this in a long time. I sure hope it lasts, because I felt like a mess yesterday."

The next day when they wake up in a mess, they say, "Oh, man, I knew it wouldn't last." Sense-minded people are snared by the words of their mouth (Prov. 18:7).

It's amazing what some people say. You hear Christian people say things like, "You know, every time I eat at a restaurant I get sick. And I know it's true because I just ate at a restaurant yesterday and I got sick." Did you ever stop to think what they are saying about themselves?

"I'm always afraid when I get on airplanes. Airplanes scare me. I was just on a flight last week and I was scared to death." The Word of God says what they believe is what they speak. They're going to get what they speak. The result is fear and no peace or joy on the flight.

"No one likes me." "My mother always told me I wouldn't amount to anything." "I'd like to hold down a job, but I can't." I could go on with a lot more phrases I hear, because that's the way many people think, therefore they speak it. They have thought the same thoughts so long that the thoughts are down into their hearts. And out of the abundance of their hearts, they have spoken it over and over. Their heart becomes so negative and full of doubt that it seems like nothing will ever change.

Since it seems like nothing will ever change, then these sense-minded people believe nothing will ever change. Because they see nothing changing in their life, they believe nothing will ever change, and they continue to speak that nothing will ever change and the result is - nothing changes.

Once I was counseling with a person who was full of doubt and unbelief. He thought he was worthless and his life was a mess and he spoke that he was worthless and his life was beyond repair.

After much teaching and explaining to him about how he would get what he spoke, his comment was this, "That may work for some people, but it won't work for me. I've tried to understand God's Word, but I haven't been able to and I don't think I ever will."

In the years since this counseling session, I must confess, he was right.

Choose to speak the Word of God out of the abundance of your heart and not what your five senses tell you and you will begin to see victory in your life.
