What are you saying with your mouth? This is because what you’re saying determines what you get or see in life. Truly, you are where you are presently because of the things you had said in the past. So, you can decide to restructure your life in the future by the words you are speaking today. Certainly, you shall have what you say.

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says – Mark 11:22-23 (NKJV).


Many of the blames, people are apportioning to other people, to the nation, government or family members are actually their faults, fruits of their lips. And the pits they are in, they dug with the words of their mouth. However, if you learn to watch your words and tailor them to align with God’s word, you will enjoy life.

Speak Only Your Desire

Say what you want to have and not what you have that you don’t want. Surely, people are prone to declare what is happening around them. But the truth is that we can change negative situations by refusing to give them a voice and marketing. This is because what you don’t water will soon die; it’s just a matter of time.

On the other hand, you can plant and water positive things with your words. So, instead of agreeing with the evil, you cancel it with your words which agree with the word of God. Christ said that if you say to a mountain to remove and be cast into the sea, you will have whatever you say. And, if you believe that those things you say will come to pass, they will come to pass. So, say only what you want to see, even if the glaring situation is the very opposite of it.

Scriptural Examples

In Genesis chapter one, God created the whole universe by the words of His mouth; He said them and they were so. Also, when the Shunammite woman’s child died and Elisha asked her if all was well, she answered that it was well. And that was what she got at the end, her child came back to life and she just went and picked him up.

Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?’ ” And she answered, “It is well….So she went in, fell at his feet, and bowed to the ground; then she picked up her son and went out – 2 Kings 4:26, 37 (NKJV).

Also, the scripture says that the weak should say that they’re strong. This means that while you’re weak, you are to say that you’re strong. This is because you shall have what you say. For instance, if you are sick, you are to say that you’re healed by the stripes of Jesus instead of saying you’re sick.

Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ – Joel 3:10 (NKJV).

How to speak and have what you say

1. You do it consciously

It’s easier to say the wrong things without giving it a thought. But, many times you have to consciously choose to say the right things. And you have to consciously search out the words of God concerning what you want, and speak.

2. In faith

You must say them believing that those things you’re saying will come to pass. However, if you have doubts while saying what you want, you will not receive anything from the Lord.

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord – James 1:6-7 (NKJV).

3. Consistently and persistently

Speaking what you want to have is not a one-off thing; you have to be consistent and persistent. This helps your faith because the more you say it, the more you believe it. And it’s what you believe and say that you will have. Again, as you consistently and persistently say what you want to have, that mountain before you will shrink, while God increases.

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says – Mark 11:22-23 (NKJV, emphasis mine).

4. Till you have it

You don’t stop speaking what you want to have until you have it. This proves that you believe that God has done it, and it will not give the enemy gap to tamper with blessing. Furthermore, there are some issues that will need you to keep speaking even after receiving it. This will sustain it and keep the enemy far from taking it from you. For instance, you’re to keep declaring total health over your life even when you’re not sick.

If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, till my change comes – Job 14:14 (NKJV).

What You Say In Written Form Matters

It’s not only what you say with your mouth that you’re to guard, you also need to check what you write. This is because it’s what you’re saying, but this time on a writing material. And it will still have the same effect as when you say it with your mouth.

Complaining And Murmuring

This is an attitude you shouldn’t have if you desire to see good all the days of your life. This is because you will eat the fruit of your lips, and murmuring and complaining attract the destroyer. Also, when you murmur or complain, you do it against God. And it shows your lack of faith in God and His Word, and this displeases the Lord. Again, as you murmur or complain, even so, do angels carry them out, even if you didn’t mean them. So, stop murmuring and complaining.

Nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer – 1 Corinthians 10:10 (NKJV).

Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands? – Ecclesiastes 5:6 (KJV).


Indeed, you shall have what you say. Hence, many people are victims of their choice of words. Therefore, diligently ensure that you choose your words well, and align them with the word of God. Also, be slow to speak but quick to hear; for this will save you and preserve your destiny in Christ. So, start to profess God’s word over your life and destiny, and speak forth your future from today.

Jesus is Lord!
