Whose Power Is It?

Let’s talk about supernatural power, hmm? Power is a God-given human quality called faith. Everyone has faith. Whether born again or not we were created with the sixth sense of faith. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it {talking} shall eat the fruit thereof {reap what you sow in words}” Proverbs 18:21Let’s review what we’ve learned so far.
Q1.What is it that has power? Answer: the tongue
Q2. Who has a tongue? Answer: humans
Q3. Who uses the tongue? Answer: Humans use it to speak, either to bless or curse.
James chapter 3 explains it very well. The tongue is like a bit in a horse’s mouth, or a rudder on a ship. It steers our lives. We can bless our bodies and even our lives with it or curse ourselves. We can praise our heavenly father or curse our neighbor. It says that an evil tongue is full deadly poison “set on fire by hell {demons}.” Now negative power is usually credited to demons and Satan. But as you see the power is in our tongue. Satan has no power. Jesus removed Satan’s jurisdiction in this world when He died and rose! Jesus gave us back the keys of the Kingdom that Adam turned over to Satan, in the beginning. We now have dominion over this world again Saints! “I have said that ye are gods”(Psalm 82:6) We are sons of the Most High God with the power to raise the dead and move mountains by faith. Satan is envious of us. Witches and occultists are afraid of us. Those of us who know who we are in Christ trample on demons and have power far greater than those on the dark side of faith. In fact we offer refuge to those in the occult; their lives are full of fear.
Now if you were a demon, what would you do? Try to usurp this power, that’s right! And how would demons do that? Answer: By influencing humans to speak what they want us to say. They speak negative words of fear and doubt, strife and evil wishes to our minds, trying to cause us to speak things they want, through these human beings who have the power of life and death in the tongue! Negative faith is launched by worry, fear, negative expectations, slander, gossip, spells, occult practices, voodoo and just wishing bad things upon people. People know instinctively that words have power. Did you ever hear someone suggest a horrible thing and someone else gasp “Don’t even SAY such a thing!” Yet we say things and later say “I told you that would happen!”
So never give credit to Satan for the power of anything other than influencing humans through lies. That’s all he has in his arsenal. The only “demonic power” available is lies. You have the power. Use it to bless others and yourself. When you eat food, bless it. Do not curse your food by saying “this is so bad for me.” Everything we eat can be good for us if we just bless it. Be thankful and bless it and eat it. Colossians 3:17 says “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” So bless yourself, bless others, bless your enemies too. Jesus said
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matt 5:44 
Why bless our enemies? We can positively affect those around us by blessing them with our words. Instead of repeatedly saying all the bad things others do we can prophesy their change. Really! Instead of a book of witchcraft and spells, Christians use books of blessings.”My boss favors me, my boss is full of wisdom and makes good decisions. My children are powerful born-again, spirit-filled believers. They are supernaturally blessed with abundance, wisdom and favor everywhere they go. My husband loves me and is a wise and good provider. My husband loves the Lord and his steps are directed by God.” If you say these things all day you are praying powerfully and effectively. You can even speak changes over yourself by saying “I hate smoking” every time you have a cigarette. If you stop saying “I need a cigarette” and change your confession to “I hate smoking” even though you keep smoking, after 30 days of doing this, your desire should start changing. Do not, however, confess that cigarettes are bad for you as this will launch a curse that you do not want to manifest.

Plenty of confession books are available to help you speak God’s Word over yjoyce meyer book.JPGour life out loud. Joyce Meyer teaches this concept as well as any. Her book “The Secret Power Of Speaking God’s Word” expounds on this subject. She confirms my claim that Satan will feed us thoughts, hoping we will speak them out loud because that’s all the power he ever has. We have the power in our tongues and speaking God’s Word is the most powerful thing we can do in life. Thankfulness and blessing go hand in hand so start your tongue a-waggin’ in the right direction and watch the results. Remember when you complain and speak worry you are helping the devil manifest things into your life and others.Renew your mind and speak to your mountains. Mark 11:23 says,
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
