Topic: Matthew 16:19
Matthew 16:19 (NKJ) And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
OUR WORDS bind whatever we 'stand on' or they set free whatever we believe in. It's all in our WORDS! Jesus gave us power and authority and it's all in our WORDS! We have the power and authority to bless the things we believe in, or to curse the things we don't believe in. It's our choice; use a 'gun' or 'a blessing-wand'.
I have to take control over my words. My words can be used as a loaded and wild weapon. (GUN) They can also be used to bless. (A BLESSING-WAND)
I need the wisdom of Jesus to know when and what to 'shoot' and when not to. I need to know what to use the 'wand' (to bless) and what shouldn't be blessed.
I need His knowledge to know what is right and what isn't...so as not to do damage where it shouldn't be done. I also need to know the power He has given me to overtake the enemy...and shoot my mouth off THEN! Any words I say can either curse or bless. I have to STAND on what I believe in and bless those things. I also have the power to curse what I don't believe in...and I'm not sure that is such a good thing. The main idea here is to CONTROL MY WORDS! (control 'shooting off my mouth' and what I bless)
They (the 'wand' and the 'gun') are the power and authority of Jesus..HIS 'gun' or His 'blessing-wand'.....and I need HIS wisdom to use them wisely.
Father, I pray for Your wisdom and mindfulness when it comes to the words I speak. The 'gun' or the 'blessing-wand'...Thank You Jesus for the power and authority You gave me through the words I speak. Help me to NOT be a loaded weapon without wisdom in this. Help me to be an educated and wise weapon and blesser...that uses Your authority and power in wisdom ONLY!
