Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and will teach you what you shall say (Exodus 4:12 AMPC)
With respect to the Holy bible, there's what we call the law of first mention. For instance, throughout this enthralling series of the perfect man we've been learning on the importance of using our mouths right. The question is, where in the bible was the mouth first mentioned and what was it doing?
Based on a study of the book of Genesis chapter one, we discover that the mouth was first used for talking, and as per the law of first mention, this let's us know that the primary purpose of the mouth is for talking.
The mouth is a weapon and it's very important to know how to use it correctly for your advantage in life. Referring back to our theme scripture, we see that the Lord knew and valued the importance of words. When He instructed and sent Moses forth, He saw it fit to equip him with words rather than to give him an army of men for the task ahead (Exodus 4). Again, when He appointed Jeremiah as a prophet to the nations, it's words that He put in his mouth (Jeremiah 1:9). This is so profound!
The extent or degree of the success, prosperity and progress that you will have in life is solely dependent on the words that come out of your mouth. In other words for you to live in and walk in the path of perfection daily, you need to be loaded with words that are perfect and you need to release them. No wonder it's written in Joshua 1:8, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
As a New Creation in Christ, the Lord has given you the greatest weapon of all; His word in your mouth. You need to use your mouth in order to enjoy the Glorious life God has predetermined for you. He said that this is your year of perfection; this has been signed and concealed in heaven. Your responsibility therefore is to settle it HERE ON EARTH. How? By using your tongue. Believe that this is your year of perfection, speak it and watch as it unfolds in your life, Glory to God!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me the power to determine the course of my life. I choose the path of perfection. Lord, your word in my mouth is a weapon unto my advantage, by which I'm walking in success, prosperity, divine health, dominion and I'm making progress. Hallelujah!
