“I am successful in everything I do!”
“You can’t say that!”
“Because it isn’t true!”
“Who says it isn’t true?”
“Well, uh, I do, and well uh, what have you ever done that makes you successful?”
“God says I am successful, and frankly I value what He thinks of me more than what you say, though I highly value your friendship.”
“God doesn’t lie, why would He say you are successful when clearly you are NOT!”
“If I saw a tree in an orchard, I personally wouldn’t know an apple tree, from a peach, or an orange tree. I just don’t know that much about how they look without the fruit, but someone who knows trees would know an apple tree from a peach tree by looking even at just the seeds or the leaves. From a seed, God saw me as a fruitful tree. I may not have produced much fruit yet, but He calls me what He knows I am!”
“Well, uh. I guess I see your point.”
The Truth is what God says.
“The truth is what God says, and I’m just repeating what I have read in His Word and heard Him say in my spirit. I’ve got good news for you, too. You are successful, and full of the life of God. He is revealing to you exactly who you are. All you have to do is say what He says you are.”
“So can I say things like this:
I’m successful in everything I do,
I’m happier than I’ve ever been,
Everywhere I go people like me and want to hear what I have to say,
I am a positive influence on everyone I meet,
All my bills are paid on time and I have plenty for everything I need, and
God is blessing me in everything I do?”
Yes, you can! Say it loud and say it strong. Declare what God says you are! If you don’t know what He says you are, you will find it in His Word and in your heart.

“You Can’t Say That!” is Part 3 in a series entitled “You Can Change Your Life in 40 Days.” It is based on Romans 12:2 Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. “You Can Change Your Life in 40 Days” is being written as I take part in the Negativity Fast and Positivity Feast sponsored by Steve and Wendy Backlund of Igniting Hope Ministries. Much of the inspiration for this series came from the teachings of Steve and Wendy which are readily available through their website and on youtube. I hope you will take advantage of all of the wisdom they have gained through their many years of ministry. My life has been changed and enriched by what the Lord has given me through Steve and Wendy.
