Actually, you’re not cursed, you’re just you. You can’t speak good or confess good things if your being is not good. Your “being” projects your speaking. Let me show you a scripture:
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
Did you see that? If you have an evil “being”, how can you speak good things? I looked up the word “being” in the dictionary, and I found some interesting things.
– The state or fact of existence, consciousness, or life.
– One’s basic nature, or the qualities thereof; essence or personality.
If what makes up your life and consciousness are negative things, it means you’re incapable of speaking positive things. If it’s now your nature to speak negatively, how then do you expect to be positive in the face of challenges? Negativity is probably in your nature, or it’s the only quality you possess.
Please I do not mean to offend you by that statement, I’m just trying to elucidate that scripture.
Verse 35 gives a solution to this problem. It says, “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things”. So if you want to change the way you speak, you have to change the treasure in your heart. You don’t change the word in your mouth by praying or determination alone, you change it by a conscious commitment to positive knowledge.
Ofcourse, the clause “treasure of the heart” means the knowledge through which your heart runs. Not just knowledge, but a consciously invested knowledge.
When a person has a blood disease that cannot be treated, they’d have to flush out all the blood in his body and replace it with fresh blood. That’s what you should do with the negative knowledge you already have in your heart, replace them with positive knowledge. Consciously change your vocabulary from what it used to be to what God wants it to be.
For instance, as Christians, we don’t complain, instead, we declare the word of God. So search your heart for those areas where you’d usually complain and consciously find scriptures that you’d use to respond anytime the situation that triggers the complain arises again.
Christians don’t express lack. You’re never expected to say “I don’t have”. Instead say, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”. That’s Phillipians 4:19. Remember that our words are creative, whatever you declare will be created. That’s why things have always gone bad each time you speak negatively. Likewise, if you consistently speak the word or good things, bad things will not only become good, good things will also begin to happen to you.
As I conclude, the journey of transformation or changing what’s in our heart is a long one, so it’s okay if you miss it here and there. But each time you miss it, ensure you correct yourself immediately. The more that happens, the more it becomes your consciousness. Personally, you won’t find me complaining or speaking negatively, not because there’s nothing to complain about, but because I now understand that the way to handle negative reports is by speaking and acting positively.
So buy books and read, listen to messages, replace your vocabularies.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
