I lived most of my life in sexual immorality. But then one day, God stepped into my life and he called me HOLY.
And I said, “But God, I am everything but holy. I am full of lust and perversion.” And God said, “I have decreed a Word over your life and I have called you to holiness. My word will not return to me void. It will fulfill that which I have sent it out to do.”
I didn’t believe I could overcome my perversions, but God told me not to doubt; and instead, just trust in Him–for he is well able to perform the impossible. So every time I would fall into lust after a woman, have a homosexual encounter, watch porn, or give in to masturbation, I would just keep speaking holiness over my life. I kept verbalizing my testimony of freedom although it seemed as if I was still in bondage. I felt like a hypocrite because I kept falling into the same thing over and over, but nevertheless, I continued to walk by faith (which comes by hearing the word of God) and I would not walk by sight (by my circumstances).
And because I kept the mentality of, “no matter what I do or how many times I fall or come short, I am going to press my way into holiness,” I slowly but surely began to walk in the manifestation of the Word that was given to me. I’m not exactly where I want to be, but when I look back at my life, before I started speaking the word of God over myself, I can see that I’m definitely not where I used to be. I’ve made progress.
MORAL: There is power in your words. Hold on to the Word of God no matter how long it takes to manifest. It will eventually come to pass because God cannot lie. God’s Word says that you are HOLY. Believe it. Receive it. Live it. Don’t FAKE it til you make it. FAITH it til you make it!
