There is a Christian tenet of speaking victory over people or situations. I don’t mean speaking about victories–like celebrating goals or achievements that have been reached.
I’m talking about speaking–verbally and out load–positive outcomes, encouraging ideas and blessings to those around us as well as ourselves.
I had never really thought about it in this way–although I have known about this concept for most of my life.
And it is a concept that when put into practice works.
Think about this–when we are happy and we talk about it–usually other good things begin happening.
When we complain and dwell on problems, sickness or bad fortune–and those complaints come out of our mouths–things usually continue on a negative trajectory.
But more importantly when we speak victory over others it can many times change the life path for those individuals.
Here is how to do it. First you need to understand that life is fluid and ever changing.
Second, you need to believe that because life is ever changing we should be open to the fact that anyone is capable of anything.
And then thirdly, you share these beliefs with those you are speaking victory over.
For example, speak victory over your children by telling them, truthfully, that there is nothing that can stop them from accomplishing what they want in life.
Speak victory over your marriage by sharing with your significant other the things you appreciate about them. Thank them for their caring, hard work and understanding.
Tell friends positive attributes you like about them and how it has influenced your life. As you do this their victory will manifest in more positive attributes.
Speak victory over people who may be struggling and it just might give them a different outlook to their future.
And speak victory over yourself and you will soon see that all you need will find itself into your life just when you need it.
Use your words for good–Speak Victory.
