“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord” (Psalm 118:17).Text — Psalm 118:14-17
In life, what you say and believe matters a lot. Hence a preacher declared, “Say it, see it, and seize it.” The Psalmist declared that God was his strength therefore he could do all things. The Lord was his salvation from sin and consequences of sin. As a result, he would rejoice in the Lord who daily loaded him with good things. He had confidence that the right hand of the Lord would exalt him and defend him. Therefore, until he finished his mission on earth, he affirmed, “I shall not die but live, and declare the works of the Lord.”
As a Christian youth, you must learn, and practice positive affirmation as it builds your faith and confidence in God. Do not declare negative things you might be experiencing but declare the positive things you are expecting. You have what you say. What do you say about your health, education, spiritual life and future? Stand on the promise of God that says: “With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation” (Psalm 91:16).
You have what you say
Learn and practice positive affirmation.
