What Are You Talking About?
What you say from the time you wake up in the morning and go to bed at night not only influences your day, it influences the entire outlook and direction of your life (Isaiah 65:16). Your own words have more power to affect you then anybody else's. Ultimately! When you ask God for specific thing (s) you need get in harmony with him by saying what He says about you (Ephesians 4:29). Before you say anything ask yourself how it'll benefit you. This also will help you in staying away from gossip, fault finding and negative remarks that can be destructive.
Whenever we face new challenges like changing a career, starting a new relationship, going back to school after having left years ago etc there's likelihood of you thinking you won't be upto the task. You'll probably build a case against yourself by speaking words that undermine your confidence along these lines: I don't think I can do this... Well, let me try... I'm doing it, but not so well..I made a mistake, maybe I can't do this... Oops! I'm doing better... Maybe I should try again later...I don't think people like what or how I do it much.. I'll give it one more shot. In all of these, you should know that God who created you has pre-programmed you to handle new situations, to change and grow (Proverbs 18:20 & 13:3). Learn to do away with the "I can'ts" and move on with "I can." And let your self talk reflects the picture of the scripture of your future. Cheers!
