The Blessing

It’s Time to Use Our Words to Declare Good Things

Did you know that what you say about yourself has greater impact on you than anything anybody else says about you? Many people are overly critical of themselves, saying, “I’m so clumsy. I can’t do anything right.” “I’m so overweight. I’ll never get back into shape.” “I never get any good breaks.”

They may not realize it, but they are cursing their future. Those words sink into their minds. Before long, they develop a defeated mentality, low self-esteem and diminished confidence. Worse yet, those negative mindsets can interfere with God’s plan for their lives.

One of the best ways to break free from such strongholds is simply by speaking words of victory. Every day, look in the mirror and declare, “God’s word says I am strong. God is fighting my battles for me. I’m excited about my future.”

Maybe you are lonely because you don’t have a lot of friends. Instead of complaining, start declaring, “God is bringing great people into my life. I know He loves me, so I can risk loving others.”
Speak blessings over your life, and as you do, you’ll go out with more confidence, you’ll be more congenial and, in turn, you will attract new friends.

When discouragement comes, instead of sitting back and accepting it, say, “No, I’m a victor and not a victim. I may have been defeated before, but the past is the past. This is a new day.”
It’s not enough just to think it; you need to hear it, because what we constantly hear ourselves saying we will eventually believe.

Some people live in a perpetual state of financial crisis. They can’t seem to pay their bills, always living “under their circumstances” and constantly speaking defeat.
If you are struggling financially, remind yourself repeatedly, “I am the head and I am not the tail. I will lend and I will not borrow. Everything I touch will prosper and succeed.”

“Oh, come on, I can’t say that,” you may be thinking. “None of that is true in my life.”
Yes, it is true! That is what faith is all about. The world says you need to see it to believe it, but God says you must believe and then you’ll see it. You must speak it by faith.

Make a list of your goals, your dreams, the areas where you want to see change. Confirm your desires by Scripture, and then every day before you leave the house, speak those blessings aloud. Something supernatural happens when you speak those words aloud.

Maybe you struggle with condemnation because of past mistakes. Each day, boldly declare, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. God is pleased with me. He is on my side.” If you say something like that on a consistent basis, guilt and condemnation won’t hang around.

It’s time to use our words to declare good things! Speak blessings over your life and your family. 


When I was sick and fighting with the death, I prayed, “I will live and not die. God is restoring health unto me. With long life He satisfies me.”
Even though doctor said that most of people who suffer this disease end up with die, I refused to see myself as defeated and dying. Instead, I growing stronger, living a long, healthy, happy life. My words caused my faith to rise and filled me with hope.

You can do the same thing. Find the Scriptures that apply to your situation and then declare them. This is especially important in areas in which you continually struggle. Do not let another critical word come out of your mouth about yourself. Instead, take a few minutes every day to bless your life, to declare the victory.

Understand, it’s not enough to avoid saying anything negative, you must go on the offensive and start making positive declarations over your life. Remember, your own words will have more impact on your future than anything anybody else says about you.

Friend, if you’ll do your part and speak words of victory, God will pour out His favor in exciting, fresh ways in your life, and you will live the abundant life He has in store for you.

Giving The Blessing

Speak to Them
A blessing is not a blessing until it is spoken. People need to hear you say: "I love you, I’m proud of you. You can do it!"

Encourage Them
The word bless actually means to bow your knee before someone. Bowing before someone is a graphic example of attaching value to that person. When you value people, you find out their like and dislikes. You laugh with them and cry with them. You invest your time.

Praise Them
Encourage them to be all they can be in life. Help them reach that potential by praising all the potentials they have and enlarging their vision of a God who always does things in abundance. Find out their dreams and dream with them.

Remind them of what the apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:9: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” Use your words to change people’s future. Give them a blessing.
