It is said that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Have you ever experienced a time when you said something and you realized it was coming out of an overflow from what’s on the inside?
Or on the other hand it could be something positive.
I remember a time when I was praying for provision for my family. I knew that God said that “He shall supply all my needs in Christ.” I knew that the Word tells me to trust in the Lord with all my heart. But the next phrase that came out of my mouth was “what if it doesn’t happen?”
What I had in my heart eventually came out. What I believed or didn’t believe was ultimately articulated.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:13, “I believed, and so I spoke.”
As a result, I endeavored to fill my heart with the Word for the Bible says that faith comes from hearing the Word of God. (Romans 10:17)
When my heart is filled with God’s Word, it will eventually overflow and influence my speech and ultimately my actions.
Lord, help me go to Scriptures each and every day to fill my heart with words of life not death, strength not weakness, and joy not sorrow. May your Word be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
I mentioned yesterday that I will start a series on the miracles of Jesus. However, due to the Prayer and Fasting week, I’d like to jump off from the devotionals given that can be found in Victory’s website.
