Nice Try! - Day 5

TALK BACK // APRIL 30, 2021

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him."

2 Chronicles 32:7

Hezekiah didn't just speak encouraging words. He spoke the power and promises of God. 

Talking back has been something we were always taught not to do. Zip the lips! But when it comes to facing our enemies in the midst of battle: God wants us to talk back! If we're going to say anything about the battles we face, let's start with speaking out the promises of God.  

Did you know words have power? Proverbs tells us that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). When discouragement tries to infiltrate our heart in an attempt to override what God has already declared, we must seek God and speak his word. We can say "no weapon formed against me shall prosper; I am more than a conqueror; nothing, including death, can separate me from the love of God through Christ Jesus! 

Today, talk back! Make a decision to overcome with God’s word! Speak God's words and promises over your life. God has given you authority to move mountains with your mouth!
