Pastor Taiwo in his sermon at the November 21 Thursday Showers service noted that God does not negate anything He says; so believers should be mindful of what they say, especially as it concerns their lives, so that it does not negate God’s view and words concerning those situations. “Words have power. Refuse to speak what you are seeing; instead, speak what God is saying about you,” he said.
Speaking from Mark 4:35-38 and Psalm 23:1-6, Pastor Taiwo said that Christians should not focus on the issues of life as Jesus is their Shepherd, but to rather confess their promises in the Word of God because the fact of their situation does not in any way negate the truth of God’s Word. “It is only when the written Word of God is spoken that it benefits you. The secret of the Kingdom lies in speaking the Word, and we are meant to continually speak it. The finished work of Christ can only be appropriated by our mouths when we speak,” he said.
