|What Are You Becoming?|
|A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.|
|– Proverbs 18:20-21|
| If you’re not sure what you’re becoming, let me give you a hint. You’re going to be whatever you think about and talk about all the time.
I can listen to you talk for 30 minutes and tell you exactly what you’ll become. It doesn’t take a prophet to do that. It just takes someone who will listen to your words.
So listen to yourself. If you don’t like what you hear, change it. Become better by beginning to think God’s Word, talk God’s Word and act on God’s Word.
Nobody on earth can determine what you’re going to become but you. Yes, you! Don’t blame it on the devil. He can’t change it. Don’t blame it on your parents, your background or your circumstances. And certainly, don’t blame God.
Forget those things which are behind…and do what Abraham did. The Bible says, "He considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb" (Romans 4:19).
He just said to himself, Old man, you don’t count. Neither do you, Granny. What counts is God’s Word and I am exactly what God says I am.
Do you want to become what God says you are? Do you want to be healed? Do you want to become free financially? Do you want to become a powerful witness in your circle of influence? What is your dream?
You can determine your outcome in life by changing your words to God’s Words, and releasing your faith. You can become all you were meant to be.
