Break The Curse Part III
(Prov.6:2) “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.” We must always be aware of what comes out of our mouth as it has great power to accomplish what is spoken. (Mark 11:23) “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”
As we have discussed previously, our words hold great authority to them. If we combine this with faith, we can see it happen. The above verse states, “he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Now, it does not say it will be good or bad. It simply says, “whatsoever he saith.” Now, add writing it down, and you have the beginning of a curse.
This is why journaling your anger and frustrations is so dangerous. If you are always speaking negative things, and writing it down, you are headed for disaster. These are the things that are done in witchcraft. (Matt.12:37) “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
If we step outside of God’s laws and begin to speak negative things and force them out through journaling them, our words can come back to haunt us. (Matt.12:36) “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” God is obliged to judge our wicked words that we speak not just to others but about ourselves as well.
Scripture states that, “out of the heart men speak”. It is what is said in most cases that reveals the heart of a person. (Matt.12:34) “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” If what is in our heart is negative, then we can expect negative results as we speak them and write them down. To most, this seems to be nonsense but, the path of wreckage behind them is evident to all except them.
Quite possibly this is the case with many as they have been living under a curse for so long that they are so use to it that they no longer realize they are cursed. (Matt.12:35) “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.” The heart of the person will come forth in what they say. The fruit of the person will come forth as a result of what they say.
(Matt.15:18) “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.” If what comes out of a persons mouth is good, then you have a good idea that their heart is good and what is within is good. If what comes out of a persons mouth is bad, then you have a good idea that what is within them is bad.
The tongue reflects the heart. If you have a wicked tongue, you have a wicked heart. If you have a pure tongue, you have a pure heart. (Matt.15:19) “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” The problem with self-inflicted curses is a problem that occurs within the person. They need salvation and to give up those things that they are speaking negative things about.
(Ps.103:10) “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” It is a good thing that God is ever merciful to us and does not reward us according to our iniquities. (Eph.2:4) “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith He loved us.” No one can out love God. If you are afflicted emotionally, and are speaking negative things, ask Him to forgive you and restore you, He will meet you right where you are and touch you. (Is.59:1-2)
“Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” (Jam.4:8) “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
The word double minded here means uncertain. Many speak evil against themselves because they are uncertain of God and where they belong as far as salvation is concerned. Because many do not know God or cling to Him, they run the risk of letting a curse fall upon them because they do not know how to guard their words, and as a result of not knowing God, they try to do everything on their own, and as a result, begin to curse themselves, their situations, God, their family etc. All of these things are grounds for a curse to take root in your life.
Jesus died for us not just for our sins, but for health, prosperity, power, longevity, and He destroyed every curse under heaven. That was what the crown of thorns represented when it was placed on His head. The curse of sin was that thorns and thistles would be born on the earth. Jesus destroyed that.
We must accept His sacrifice and allow Him to take our burdens and sorrows and let Him bear them for us. Only through repentance is it possible for a curse to be broken. (Ps.32:1-2) “A Psalm of David, Maschil. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.”
Most do not realize that we are created in the image of God and we have great power and authority as we are created in His image. In Genesis we see God speaking things into existence. We have a similar authority as we have that power extended to us as we are created in His image. (I John 4:17) “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.”
(Prov.21:23) “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” If we do not want trouble, we must guard our words as they have serious consequences to them! Is it any wonder that we will be judged by what we say? We have the power to give life to others and bless them by what we say. But, more often than not, we choose the negative side and decide to do damage and hurt by our words. It is a fact that what is spoken will return to us.
(Ps.12:23) “The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things.” Watch out for pride as it is a gateway for disaster to strike. There are so many in religious circles that speak so proudly that it is so obvious as to where they operate from that it is just sick. Many fall to serious ailments as a result of this. It all begins in the heart.
Here is a clear example of a person that lives a cursed life and does not know it. (Prov.2:10-19) “When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;
Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.”
1) They speak forward things or perverse things. They openly reject what is right. They repeatedly do the wrong things. 2) They have left the paths of uprightness and walk in darkness. 3) They enjoy doing evil things and take pleasure in others that do the same. 4) Their ways are crooked and not stable.
They are always moving about from here to there never taking root in something. 5) They froward in their paths. They purposely do not go in the right direction. 6) They speak flattery. They divide and separate from what is right. 7) They forsake youthful guidance and morals. 8) They have forgotten where they once were with God. 9) They walk in the path of death and the demonic and do not know it.
This is a classic example of how we are snared in the things we speak. Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits and if it is negative, can bring a curse upon you. (Prov.10:32) “The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.”
If we are to ever stop the negative cycles in our lives, we must begin to be mindful of what comes out of our mouth. We have the ability to make things great or bad for ourselves, and those around us. Most probably do not realize just how negative they are. Try this for one day. Every time you have a negative thought or speak something negative, record it. You may be surprised just how negative you really are, and how much negativity spews forth from you.
(Phil.4:8) “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
