Finding the right words | with Rev. Obi Peters]

NOV 6th 2016

Ist Service: Sunday 7am

There is no competition between God and man. We are in the era of the Spirit of the Lord. The bible says in the last days, the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord like the waters cover the sea.

When you pay attention to the Holy Spirit, He helps direct your life. Today I want to bring you into a place of fellowship.

“What makes the blind to see, the lame to walk and the sick to be healed is not Jesus but the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the word, the Holy Ghost is the power of God.”

When you recognise the Holy Spirit, there is something you see. When you hear that still small voice in your spirit, it is not Jesus but the Holy Spirit speaking to you.



Words are the ink that creates our destiny. Words are the picture that delivers our future. Words are the ingredients that carve our lives. Words is a man’s choice for living and words is a choice that every man pictures.

How do I mean? The kind of life a man wants to live is a function of the kind of words he chooses to speak.

“How do I know a man that will go far? Let me hear your diction and I will predict your future.”

You will not blame any man for being a victim. Life is a product of words. Words don’t just come on its own. Men who make careless comments are men who are victims of themselves.

Death is a product of word. Earth is a product of words. Success, faiulure, acceptance is a product of words. Anything a man wants to see in his life must first of all be created by words. One thing with words is that words don’t just come by themselves.

3 kinds of men

  1. a man who does not think before he speaks
  2. a man who thinks before he speaks
  3. a man who weighs the word before he speaks

Prayer: may your words not destroy your life.

“8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.[Rom 10:8-10]

You are enjoying nothing but the outcome of the thought God has for you. Your confession is the outcome of your salvation. Before a man begins to confess, there is a region the bible calls the region of the thinking. There are no right words without a right mind. Your words are generated first of all from your mind. If the content of your minds are polluted, the content of your mouth will be polluted.

When the mind of a man does not have the right content, the mind will always arm the mouth. The bible says the word is near thee! Meaning your words are not far from your mouth. When there is a conclusion in your heart about a situation, and you say in your mind,” this thing cannot work”, you will not find the result.

“Anything you want the right outcome, your must prepare the right mind.”

Our lives are built by words.

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” [Mark 11:23]

The mountain in your life does not answer to your words first, it answers to your mind. If your mind is able, then your mouth can produce it. Why do people fail? It’s because the heart and the mouth is not in agreement.

The mind is occupied with fears and failure and the mouth is confessing I shall not die. Your mind has more power than your mouth.

The first thing we must do as God’s children is to take care of our victories in our mind first.

Why will a Christian be on a sick bed and still be confessing I shall not die and we come back tomorrow to hear that he has died? Like Job said, “the things that I feared have come back to me.” Job is a just man but had fear in his mind.

The fear in your mind will give a wrong outcome in your life.

There is nothing God can do about your mind; it is your job to work on your mind- Rom 12:2

The mouth speaks from the abundance of the mind.

Sometimes your mind wishes you failure but your mouth celebrates you. At times you wish you could control your mind, the reason is this, the mind has not been submitted to the Holy Ghost. The mind (heart) is the house of the Holy Spirit.

When the Holy Ghost is in the life of a man, the right words are easily found.

Hebrews 3:1 [read text]

What is Confession?

  1. Affirming what you believe. And you must believe that your mind is the power of the word.
  2. Confession means, testifying to what you know.
  3. It is witnessing to a truth.

You can find a right life when your give God the right mind. When your mind is saturated with the presence of the Holy Spirit, your life will produce the right words.

Prayer of confession: Father, I give you my heart, Precious Holy Spirit in any way I have confessed the wrong words, let that word be corrected today.
