Joel 3:10 Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”

Obviously, there’s a correlation between our speech and our lives or else, God wouldn’t tell us to say the opposite of how things appear.

We may feel weak, but we are to declare we’re strong. It may seem like we’re having financial difficulties, but we should say we’re rich (2 Cor. 8:9). The symptoms make us appear sick, but we’re healed (Isaiah 53:5). Situations in our lives may appear problematic, but we’re free from all our troubles (Psalm 34:9).

Some may say we’re lying or not being “real”, but if God’s Word says we’re strong, rich, healed, and whole, we’re calling God a liar if we say anything different.

Let’s monitor our speech and be sure we’re saying what God says about our lives and nothing else.
