SCRIPTURE: But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:36-38.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your liberty or captivity in life is at the mercy of your words.

Our anchor Scripture reveals that words, particularly our own words, bring liberty or captivity. Your liberty or captivity in life is at the mercy of your words. You are either a victim or a victor in life by your word.

You can use your word to determine your outcome in life.
Abraham is one man who used his word to determine his outcome.

God told him to sacrifice his son, Isaac on the mountain, and Abraham determined the outcome of the whole adventure before he left.

Genesis 22:5 says,
And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

Did you see that?

What Abraham told the servants was, “My son Isaac and I are going up to worship the LORD and do the sacrifice God said, but both of us would return.”

Abraham must have reasoned and said to himself, “I will not disobey God. He said I should offer my son as sacrifice. I will offer him. I will tie him. I will burn him. I will set him ablaze but one thing I am sure of is, I am not coming back alone. I will come back with him. This is because God told me that in Isaac shall my seed be called. And this is that Isaac. I am going to give God the Isaac, but out of the ashes, Isaac would resurrect and I would return with Isaac.”

So, from that death, he received him in a figure. Even though God had concluded that he had sacrificed Isaac; Abraham still received Isaac back in a figure. Thus Abraham determined his outcome by his words.

Beloved, you can also determine the outcome of your life by your word. Do not confess your situation; confess your revelation from the Word of God, and your revelation will birth your reality.

Remember this: Your liberty or captivity in life is at the mercy of your words.


  1. Despite your condition, determine the positive outcome of your situation by speaking correctly.
  2. Refuse to give up in the face of any temptations, tests and trials.
  3. Do not let hard times make you speak hard and negative words.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to determine the positive outcome of my life by the way I speak. Grant me access to the right words, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
