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 (Joshua 1:8).
The Word didn’t say, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy heart”; but thy mouth. The Lord is dealing here with success, and says, “For you to be successful, the Word must be in your mouth.” Therefore, “Keep saying it; don’t stop talking it.” You’re required to keep talking the Word. The Word of God on your lips is God talking; it produces results.
Someone might say, “What does it matter? As long as the Word is in my heart, that’s what count,” no. The principle is clear: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night.” If you’re going to be successful; if you’re going to be victorious in life; you have to be a talking Christian. The truth is, if the Word is in your heart, you can’t but speak it forth, because out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34).
Only talking Christians win in life. Don’t mistake this for being loquacious; I’m referring to being a Word talker. When you’re alone, don’t be quiet; keep speaking the Word. Keep saying, “I’m a victor everywhere! I walk in the light of God. Success is in my spirit.” You can’t talk like this and be defeated in life. It doesn’t matter that you were born sick or poor; you can talk yourself into health, wealth and abundance. The power is in your mouth: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21).
There’s a divine ability in you to create the kind of life or environment you desire. You can alter the circumstances of life to conform to the image you conceive in your spirit by speaking in faith, in line with God’s Word. This is the key to living in victory continually. Start speaking and calling forth today what you want to see in your life and the Holy Spirit will incubate on your words and make them a reality.
