Matthew 12:37 (KJV)
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
James and John grew up as friends. James was sly while John was shy and never really spoke much. Each time they got into trouble, it was John who always got punished as James would quickly put the blame on him. Finally, a day came when James got into some serious trouble with the law and as usual, he tried to blame it on John when the police arrived, but this time, something inside of John made him speak out boldly in objection so as to counter and denounce the false accusation made against him by James. Soon, John was freed based on the truthfulness of his statement and that of another fellow who had witnessed the incident and he has since learned a valuable lesson that spoken words are sacrosanct.
We have an enemy whose accusations on our lives have real and disastrous consequences and so it is pertinent that we respond to him if we must survive or overcome (Prov 18:21, Isa 54:17, Mk 11:23).
When we declare God’s words using “It is written” in our response to Satan’s accusations in form of diseases, lack, disappointments, etc., Jesus who Himself is the presiding Judge, our Lawyer as well as our Evidence (slain Lamb), takes to the witness stand on our behalf in heaven’s courtroom and He by our faithful resolve in confessions, speaks to give us an acquitting verdict (Rev 5: 6-9, Heb 7:25, Rom 8:33-34, Heb 12:22-24).
Know today that, “The state of a man’s life is a sum total of the consequences of what he or someone else has been speaking”. Speak, therefore and be acquitted, for the Judge, the Lawyer, the Witness and the Evidence are all in your favor.
