What are you saying about yourself and circumstances, because what you say determines whether you are blessing or cursing yourself. When God blessed Adam and Eve He blessed them saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that creepeth upon the earth.” When Jesus cursed the fig tree he said unto it, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.” And that’s the same way you bless and curse, they both come out of your mouth. Your words determine whether you see blessings or curses. 1Peter 3:10 says, “For he that will love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.” That is a principle, so you could say if you want to see blessings keep your tongue from speaking curses. Don’t tell me what you say is not important, Proverbs 30:32 says, “If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thy hand upon thy mouth.” Notice what he’s saying, don’t speak evil. The good and blessing you want to see speak it. Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law and the redeemed are instructed to speak their redemption, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” (Psalm 107:2).
Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you death and life, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” You choose death or life and blessing or cursing by your tongue. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21). Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My bretheren, these things ought not so be (James 3:10). Don’t use the power of the tongue to speak death and curses. God instructs you to speak life and blessings, because He knows you will eat the fruit of your lips. That’s why God told the people “Let the weak say, I am strong” (Joel 3:10). So what are you speaking- Everytime around this time of year I get sick, or I can never hold on to money. Why don’t you put the word in your mouth and make your way prosperous, like God told Joshua (Joshua 1:8). Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying On this wise ye shall bless the children of Isreal, saying, unto them… (Numbers 6:23). Likewise, speak to and bless your finances, your body, and your family.
