This is what you should say to your circumstances when they don’t line up with God’s Word:
2 CORINTHIANS 4:18 NIV 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
You may not realize it — but problems often “speak” to you. They say things like, “You can’t get rid of me. I’ll be with you as long as you live.”
“Your parents died from this and you will, too.”
“Your family was poor and you’ll always be poor. You’ll never have abundance. You’ll never get out of debt.”
Actually, it’s the demonic forces behind the problems that speak to our minds — trying to keep us in doubt and unbelief. We must resist those thoughts — and the first step is to talk back!
We should speak to thoughts of doubt and unbelief that are contrary to what God has said in His Word — for His Word is truth.
Don’t be passive. Resist!
The Bible tells us to submit ourselves therefore to God. resist the devil, and he will flee from you. That means resisting his thoughts and ideas, too.
Long ago, God gave mankind dominion on earth. That dominion included naming things. You still have that form of dominion today. If you name your troubles as “yours” and “permanent” — they will stay. But if you call them “temporary” — they will eventually leave.
Jesus told us to speak to our mountains and tell them to be gone. But what should you say after you have spoken to the mountain and it’s still there?:
SAY THIS: My circumstances are subject to change!
