Yes, what you say is what you'll get. But how can this be? Because words are seeds. Do you doubt this? The Bible tells us this in Mark 4:14 "And the sower sows the Word." And why is this so important? And further, what significance does this have to our premise that what you say is what you get?
Well, Jesus says if you don't understand the principle behind words being seeds, or the Seedtime and Harvest process, you can't understand anything of the workings of the Kingdom of God! Let's listen:
And He said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? And how will you understand all the parables?"
If you haven't already realized it or didn't already know, this parable Jesus is referring to in Mark Chapter Four, is all about seeds!
Now, let's think about what we know about seeds. First, seeds always produce after their own kind. Yes, orange seeds always produce oranges, not tomatoes.
The Multiplication Factor
The other thing we know about seeds is, there is a multiplication factor involved. If you sow that same orange seed in our illustration, you don't get just one orange at harvest, you get many oranges. And it's the same with word seeds. The multiplication factor is still in effect. Now perhaps you can understand the Bible's statement "For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned."(Matthew 6:37)
Yes, not only are your words seeds, but they produce a harvest in your life after their own kind. Furthermore, whatever those word seeds are, expect to receive more of what those words represent!
So how are we to use this knowledge that the Word of God teaches us about words being seeds? What does the Word of God say?
Godly Confession For The Kingdom
The Bible directs us to use the confession of the spoken word – this godly confession – for the Kingdom of God. He expects us to use this knowledge of the spoken word being a seed to fulfill our destiny and the promises of God. Yes, with the words of our confession we will be either justified or condemned.
And where does God say this or teach this in the Bible? He teaches the confession in Psalms 35:27:
(27) Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication;
And let them say continually, "The Lord be magnified,
Who delights in the prosperity of His servant."
Who You Believe
For after all has been said and done, the question remains, who are you going to believe? Will you believe your present circumstance as you final reality? Or will you believe God when He tells you that you not only will get what you say, but you can have what He says belongs to you?
Are you going to be the recipient of the harvest of careless words borne out of an unbelieving heart – a heart that doubts that you too can have what God says you can have? For "...Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh."(Matthew 12:34 NKJ) Or will you say what God says you can have? The choice is yours, but make no mistake, what you say is what you will get. Choose the godly confession of His promises in the Word of God.
