God's Covenant of Words
ISAIAH 59:21 NKJ 21 "As for Me," says the Lord, "this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants' descendants," says the Lord, "from this time and forevermore."
According to Isaiah 59:21, part of our covenant with God includes continually having His words in our mouth and in the mouth of our descendants. Not only are we to speak God's Word, but we are to train our descendants to do the same.
God must know something about the importance of the words we speak, that we have not yet understood.
Although a growing number of believers are beginning to realize the importance of the words we speak, the vast majority of Christians have never heard any teaching on this subject. Yet, if you search the Bible, you will see that God puts a major emphasis on what we say.
1 PETER 4:11 NIV 11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God....
Look at the Bible for yourself. Decide for yourself. You will surely decide that the Bible teaches that believers should speak words in agreement with what God says.
What you say IS important.
SAY THIS: I will speak words in agreement with what God has said, and I will teach my descendants to do likewise.
