“…she said to herself, “if only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well…” Matthew 9:21 (NKJV)

Do you know that the victory or defeat that we face in life often comes from what we say to ourselves from time to time? Whether you believe it or not, it matters what you say to yourself on a daily basis. There are people today who talk themselves down daily. The thoughts in their minds are thoughts of defeat and failure and as a result, they keep saying negative things to themselves which ultimately makes them defeated in life. As a child of God, one of the things you must do for yourself, is to be mindful of the things you say to yourself. Beyond just thinking and saying positive things, you must also be intentional about it. You must think and declare words that will propel you in the right direction in life.

In our opening text, we see the story of the woman with the issue of blood. She had tried for several years to get her healing but all to no avail. However, she did not give up, instead when she heard that Jesus Christ was passing by, “…she said to herself, “if only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well…” Matthew 9:21 (NKJV). And guess what, she did get well after touching the hem of His garment. She got exactly what she said to herself. In the same way, you can get exactly what you say to yourself. Therefore, begin today to say the right things to yourself. Say the things you want to experience, not things that will frustrate you. When you become conscious of this truth, you will be amazed at how your life will begin to move from glory to glory!

TODAY’S RHEMA 

Say the things you want to experience, not things that will frustrate you!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY 

I receive wisdom and grace today to start saying the right things to myself. Henceforth, I refuse to say the wrong things to myself. I choose to say things that will encourage me. Elevate me and catapult me to greater heights and as I do this, I record growth and progress in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
