Continue below to delight yourself in this devotional introduction of “Open up Your Mouth.”

Readers, take a walk with me on this journey series of Open Up your Mouth. This will be a 4-part episode revealing how you can liberate yourself simply by speaking God’s word over your life with power, with authority silently and openly. Open up Your Mouth will dive into the hidden deception that Satan tries to use to discourage from using a very powerful weapon, your mouth, to speak the word of God. There are limitless possibilities in your life if only you would believe. Open Up your Mouth and “call those things which be not as though they were.” Romans 4 verse 17

Speak boldly as you ought to speak

So in prayer, research, meditation, and writing, I have had the best time learning more myself on how to speak boldly and declaring the word of God. One of the biggest reasons why it can be so hard to speak the word out loud is because of fear. I have written a number of works on fear and how to overcome it and in the end it comes down to your faith.

We are so loved by God, he says, “don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. ” -Isaiah 43 verse 1 If you are consumed with fear, how strong is your faith? Satan will try to use different tactics of fear to imprision your faith. Open up your Mouth and speak God’s word over your life, over your body, over your family, “that you may open your mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.” -Ephesians 6 verse 19 You should be “speaking boldly as you ought to speak. The power of life and death is in your tongue.” Speak life in your life.

The words of your mouth

Sometimes it can feel mentally draining to read your bible or to even pray. This is not where we want to be in our spiritual relationship. The reason you can feel mentally exhausted just to even think on praying can signify being bound and a lack faith. To think on the goodness of Jesus is a blessing not a burden. In Lamentations 3 verse 25, it says, “the Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.” When you cannot succumb to opening your mouth to pray or praise you are allowing the enemy to take control over blocking your blessing, over your peace, over your break-through, and over that very thing that you know you need God to do in your life.

What are you wrestling with?

To speak the word of God boldly requires for you to Open up your Mouth and do just that. Have you ever felt like, every time you go to pray, it seems like it’s just so much you are dealing with that you don’t know where to start? There are so many things that you can be wrestling with that you don’t know what to say, not even to be bold about it. It’s not the carnal things of this world, it’s spiritual. Even the attacks in your life, on your job, against your marriage, is spiritual. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world.” – Ephesians 6 verse 12 The scripture aforementioned says, “we wrestle.” Have you ever watched wrestling? Perhaps while younger you wrestled with your siblings or you may have seen other kids doing so. When wrestling, you often notice one person has the other person in a locked position. The objective is not about how many rolls or moves you make, it’s mainly about how long you can keep that person in the same position for the longest time. It’s about how long you can pin your opponent down.

This is it.

This is what the enemy tries to do, get you in a locked position for as long as he can. His objective is to pin you down (kill), keep you quiet (steal), torment you (destroy). Satans mission is clear; is yours? Does the enemy have your mouth shut so that you are too fearful or tired to speak God’s word in your life? Are you locked up, bound and confused? What is your mission? Your greatest weapon is to remove the chains that has bound you by Opening up your Mouth and speaking God’s word. Don’t allow Satan to put you in a position where you are enslaved to his tricks and tactics. You are not a slave to fear! Your blessing and your deliverance starts and ends in speaking God’s word. Meditate on the word, pray the word, speak the word. Open up your Mouth.

Prayerfully this devotional introduction of Open up your Mouth has begun to start a heart-changing effect in your life. Stay tuned to Episode 1. Again, sign-up to receive FFC’s monthly newsletter.

Family-Life Balance

Essentially, who you are is what is needed

Find time to spend with those that are dear to you. Enjoy creating memories as you take the time to show concern and care for those that enjoy your presence. Life is too short to put up with false pretenses and facades. Your time is valuable, use it with those that want to be around you and need you. Spending time with your family, your children is essential. In essence, at the core, around you is your family. Take a moment to thank God for creating all the wonderful people that surround you in your life and well, if they are not so wonderful, prayer can change that.

This past year has not been easy for some. A lot of folks have still had to work through this pandemic and may have felt like they have worked more harder than ever just to meet demands. Even with all the demands of work, you still may have not had a chance to spend the quality time you need with your family or let alone yourself. “If you genuinely love what you do and are doing it for the right reasons, you are more than entitled to spend all of your waking hours plugging away. But for many, more work leads to more stress and a lower quality of life. Without time to unwind, take care of your home, spend time with loved ones, enjoy your hobbies, -this can cause stress. Stress is the #1 cause of health problems-mentally and physically.” -G.E. Miller The U.S. is the Most Overworked Developed Nation in the World

Where is your balance?

Working and working without having a balance can lead to serious problems emotionally and physically. I know that just the idea of giving time away to someone else while you are trying to figure out your own ordeals and problems may already be enough to deal with. While being in a pandemic you may have noticed that you haven’t spent as much time with your family no greater than before the pandemic. Maybe you couldn’t have because you are an essential worker and your job demanded your skill or maybe you were locked in a room taking virtual calls all-day or perhaps it has been just too much of a routine, staring at the same people and it caused you to become disconnected from your family, from your children, from your-self. “70% of American children live in households where all adults are employed.” -G.E. Miller You may be part of that 70%, I am. So how do you make room for the ones you love? I say, make room the same way you make room to get up every morning and punch a clock, because you have to but more so because you need to. Whatever the reason may be from why you haven’t been able to spend as much time with your family as you would like, it’s not the end and it’s never too late to place value on your time with family. You can start now. Start doing something that can be small but yet meaningful and is fun for you all.

Some of my family favorites that my husband and I have still tried to incorporate throughout this pandemic is our Friday movie and pizza night. I made a conservative effort, especially going into this year to not lose our values and to still make time to enjoy each other. Bowling is also starting to become a thing for us and we all seem to do it quite well, (especially with more practice) 🙂

Kids are still kids

It’s so easy to get lost in the sauce when you have so many other things that demand your attention but family is important. Spending time with your children is even more so important and critical. A lot of kids have spent this past year in a home secluded from the people that makes them happy such as their friends and their social outlets. These kids have had to learn how to re-define the way in which they live, do schoolwork and at the same time deal with the pressures of a forever changed society. For some kids this had led to depression. Imagine how this may have affected a child that is extroverted- needing to be around others, sociable, outspoken, and likes the attention of those around him/her. Just think about how this may have impacted your child. This is why it’s important to find that time just to sit down and make it a point to let your kids know that they are heard, loved, and cared for.

The part you play

What can you do to implement more time with your family? Is it making it in time for dinner to sit around the table and talk about the day? Is it even cooking dinner to begin with, lol? Is it talking about their goals and future? How about reading to your kids, maybe have them read to you, or even baking with your kiddos. My kids love to bake . They get that from yours truly and I get it from my mom.

Baking is such a great way to bond and create memories with your kids. I try not to do this so often but I can’t seem to help myself, but generally, no usually, I use baking as a method to teach about life lessons. Like the use of eggs in a baking a cake, it provides structure and texture to the cake. Finding ways to incorporate life lessons in the act of baking is just a way that I notice that what I say sticks butter, sorry I mean sticks better 🙂 Aside from God, parents know their kids better than anyone else and however works best to get that solemn message across the right way, use it.

On this day, on every day that you are graced with, take a moment to say, “what can I do differently than before when it comes to spending time with my family?” This could be as a whole or perhaps one on one time with one of your kids that need an extra nudge of attention. Perhaps it is even one on one time with your spouse who needs that extra love to. Make it a great day and be blessed.

The question is answered when you believe

On account of all that you are going through, they may look at you strange and wonder how it is you still have joy. Why not have joy? Even through the pain and hardship, God is still providing and making a way for you.

On account of all that you may have lost, it may seem strange for you to smile, but why not, God, he’s still been good to you.

It may even seem a bit odd how you came out of that fore-doomed situation and landed on top, with keys in hand. How so? Because God, he’s just too good to you.

They can’t seem to figure out how you’re so blessed, can’t quite put their hands on your secret and yet it’s a simple one. God, he’s simply that good to you.

When they ask, how did you arrive at the place you are, and why is it that you’re so special? Tell them, God, when he created me and formed me, he already knew how much and what he would bless me with, how he would deliver me, and how he would provide for me. All that was ever needed from me and you, from our very beginning, was just to believe. The what? when? and how? begins to turn from questions to a statement to simply say, Thank You God for being so good to me.
