Speak Your Future To Your Future

We may have inherited much of our past but we create most of our future. We start out in a world created by others, but gradually over time we change that world into one of our own creation. A new world created by our actions, decisions, and words.  Many of us understand how important decisions and actions are, but most do not realize how important are the words that we speak. Our words can create beautiful things or destroy beautiful things.

Spiritually speaking, we all call carry a loaded gun right below our very noses. It is called our mouth. Too many of us shoot it off way too often and way too much. We end up hurting others and hurting ourselves. Do not curse your future; bless your future. Speak out things that you would want and not the things that you would not want. If you do not like the way your life is today, change the way you speak today. Change your words. Words that we have been spoken in the past have for the most part shaped the world we live in today.

Our words can create beautiful things or destroy beautiful things.

I am not saying that you or your words are responsible for the terrible things others may have done to you. You did not cause their actions. However, through faith in God you can now build a good life no matter what may have happened to you in the past. The point is this – do not inadvertently curse your own future by retelling the negative things of the past.

So that he who is blessing himself in the earth, Does bless himself In the God of faithfulness, Isaiah 65:16a Young’s Literal Translation

The words you speak today create the future you’ll have tomorrow. Believe for the best and speak the best. It takes both because believing by itself is not enough. You do not get what you believe; you get what you believe and say.

For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth, he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:10

Active believing includes speaking and doing. When Jesus cursed the fig tree, He spoke to it. He did not just believe that it would dry up from the roots and die. He believed and commanded it to dry up from the roots and die. He spoke His desired result. He then commanded His disciples to do the same thing, except that He gave them a much bigger example – a mountain.

Jesus said to them, “Have faith in God! For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he said. Mark 11:22, 23

In the above verse, believing is mentioned one time and speaking is mentioned three times. We mostly get the believing part, but leave off the speaking part. We do not realize that belief is released into the world by speaking. Speaking your desired future is not lying or denial. We do not deny current conditions. We are simply calling forth the true conditions that we are believing for. We do not deny the facts of our current world, but choose to believe and receive the truth, that God will change the natural condition. In the natural, Abraham was a fatherless old man, way beyond the age of having children, but God spoke to him and called him to be a Father of Many Nations.

“I have made you the father of many nations.” He (Abraham) is our father in the presence of God whom he believed–the God who makes the dead alive and summons the things that do not yet exist as though they already do. Romans 4:17

God calls those things that do not exist yet as though they already exist. We are to do the same. Hebrews 11:1 says that, ‘Faith is the reality of things hoped for, the evidence of thing not yet seen.’ Faith speaks to the things that do not yet exist ‘as though they already do’ exist. Speak your faith continually and someday it will exist.

This does not mean that we can speak anything we want into existence. Our power comes from faith, and faith comes from what God has promised in His word. Take your needs and desires to Him and His word. If you find a promise that supports your desire, find out what the conditions are and meet them. Then speak that promised desire out of your mouth until you believe it and continue to speak it out until you receive it.

We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith. The one who made the promise is faithful.  Hebrews 10:23

By faith, you can create new worlds of blessing in your life similar to how God created new worlds. He spoke them into existence (Hebrews 11:3). The Bible says that things can be created out of nothing by the spoken word of God. Speaking faith is the power that gives us the victory. It is how we are to overcome evil.

And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Revelation 12:10, 11

It says that we overcame the evil one – by the (shed) Blood of the Lamb and the (spoken) word of our testimony. Go out there and find the will of God, and then speak it into existence.

  1. When we say “Jesus is my strength” we have two choices:

    1. Is to view this as a positive affirmation – from which we derive a measure of strength, or
    2. Because “Jesus is my strength” i.e. we rely on and rejoice because “Jesus is my strength”. He is actually active and fully engaged in the detail of my life…..

    It is an important distinction – but hard to explain. The first is Anthony Robbins-esque. It relies on us to draw mental-strength from an affirmation albeit about Jesus. The second, simply relies fully on Jesus. It is real faith. The first is not real faith in my view.

  2. My brother is facing many challenges but thorough this inspirational word of confession I believe he will overcome everything by God’s grace

  3. Hi, I am blessed for having being guided by the Holy Spirit, to find this most inspiring site two nights ago. I have not stopped reading and reflecting on these various writings. How sweet and inspiring they have been to me, especially in matters of faith and the Word.
    Thank you. I have been praying and speaking the Word and declaring my faith into my need for finance my three sons to travel abroad my studies, despite certain deadlines, I am going to continue speaking positive words that I have received the funds required. I almost and was giving up on believing in the fact that by faith, and in speaking the Word and claiming that I have the required funds was not happening and almost questioning if this works and I read this particular article and feel that I must continue to believing that I have received the required funds.
    Thank you for being such an inspired vessel of hope.

  4. Hello Rex,

    Thank you for your article ‘Speak Your Future to Your Future’. You may like to know that your article was God’s answer to my prayer!

    I have been speaking words of healing over my self for several months now, totally trusting in God’s Word and His promises. Then the other day, because I hadn’t seen any improvement in the symptoms, I started to lose hope. I wondered if I was being foolish to think my words could make me well. Was I the only one who believed in this? I felt discouraged and went to God in prayer.

    It is so amazing how God answered my prayer on this matter. About one hour later, as I was going through the TV channels, I came across a man and his adult daughter who were speaking of the power of your words, and you can have what you want by speaking it! His name was Charles Capps, and even though I didn’t know of him, I somehow knew his name. This was exactly what I needed to hear, to know that I’m not alone in believing about speaking out loud my future. I was so excited, and had regained my hope and faith to an even higher degree than before! I shared all of this with my family, and they were eager to speak things over their own lives.

    Then my daughter called to say that she was listening to Joyce Meyer on the radio talking about the same topic! And sure enough, I opened my e-mails yesterday, and there was your article on exactly the same subject! God is really trying to let me know that I’m not alone in this, and that He approves! The symptoms are there, but I am so determined to be well, that I will not give up! All I need to do is speak out what I want and have the faith to believe for it. Thanks again for your timely article.

      Ann – Wow, isn’t God faithful and good! My Pastor also taught on this last Sunday. Charles Capps is great. He has been teaching on this subject for decades.

      Read our latest post – She Spoke Her Miracle Into Being. It is along similar lines – Hold fast the speaking of your faith, knowing that God is faithful. He promised and He will perform!

      Also look up these two other articles – Faith Knows the Final Score, An Analogy of Faith and Faith Is ‘hupostasis’ – Hebrews 11:1 God bless, Rex

  5. For some reason I always felt compelled to burn my bridges; if a relationship or a job was going downhill, I forced a confrontation so I could storm away in self-satisfied victory. It was hearing the voice of God that made me realize I was ruining my future at the same time as my present. I always thought the most powerful weapon I had was my automobile, I know now it is my mouth. I am trying so hard to be different to protect my current and my future, and I know that if God forgives my past who am I not to? But not a day goes by that I don’t cringe with guilt and pain over things I’ve done and people I’ve hurt. Circumstances and frankly pain prevent me from facing certain people to apologize. How else can I ever escape myself?

      Kay – How can you escape the past and yourself? You go on from this point on with love and forgiveness in your heart for everybody in your life, INCLUDING YOURSELF. We have all done this to some degree. Let it go and now speak grace and favor over yourself and over all those that God may bring to your remembrance. Watch your words and change your words. Face situations with faith and love and peace, and watch your life explode with blessings. This is exactly what Jesus died for. Use His word and His work.

      Many of the things we did in the past were traps laid by the Devil. He would lay them, and then if we fell into them he would taunt and accuse us with guilt. It is a double whammy. Get free from the cycle and lean hard on the grace of God and the forgiveness of God.

      Get the scriptures inside of you and go for it as hard as you can. Stick with it no matter what it looks like in the short run. At first It may look like it is not working and you may not ‘feel’ it. That is just the Devil and your flesh fighting you. Go through it and see the salvation of God.

      Read some of the victorious articles on this site and allow them to encourage you and motivate you. We love you and believe in you. Rex

      1. Rex – You did not say much that I have not thought before, but – wow – although I strongly believe that Satan is alive and the evil in this world is caused by him, I never connected that some things we did in the past could have been traps laid by the Devil and if we fell into them, his victory (and our punishment/loss) was guilt and regret. I always took the whole burden onto myself and my innate defects and deficiencies. I take things very literally and the written word, even more than the spoken one, has great impact on me. I’m tearing with relief and gratitude. Thank you so much.
