Use Your Mouth For 2017

It’s almost time for a NEW YEAR!  It’s almost time for a new start, a fresh start.  I don’t know about the rest of you but I always get so excited about New Years!  Personally I see this as a time to do something different, to do something better, or to do something new.  I always commit to setting the tone for my year.  I believe so heavily in making a declaration for yourself!  I truly love this time of the year! 

So in going into the New Year I’m sure you’re thinking about all the things you want to do moving forward.  I’m sure you’re making your resolutions and making your celebration plans as well.  I’m sure there is someone who is just looking forward to this year being over!  There is someone who has struggled through this year with various attacks from the enemy.  I know there is someone reading this trying to figure out how they can make their 2017 not look like their 2016.  I want to help you.

Proverbs 18:21 says “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”  Your mouth is the most powerful tool you have.  The words you speak can literally make your life fruitful or can kill your spirit.  So going into 2017 speak things that you want to see come to fruition.  Speak the life you desire to have.  Speak life into a broken situation.  Speak life over your family, in your career, or just speak life to uplift your spirit.  Your mouth has power!  For the last couple years I come up with a one word declaration for each New Year.  Think of a powerful declaration and speak it out loud!  Proclaim your victory!  Proclaim your success!  Use your tool!

Your mouth is your tool and I encourage you to use it going forward.  From this point forward trust in the power of your tongue.  My prayer for all of us is going into 2017 we reap the things we sow with our mouths.  We will no longer speak death but only life.  We will commit to our come up!  Use your mouth to declare and decree VICTORY for 2017!  I love you all!  Happy New Year!
