RHEMA 6/26/11 VOWS AND WISHES
Is a wish the same thing as a vow? Since as far back as
I can remember, I have wished that I'd never been born.
I know that this wish has had and is having huge impact
on my life.
SANDY RESPONSE: Scripture tells us to take our
thoughts captive to Christ because out of the abundance
of our hearts, we end up speaking life and death.
For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
2 Cor 10:5-6 NKJV
...bringing every thought into captivity to the
obedience of Christ...
Matt 12:34-35 NKJV
For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
Prov 18:21 NKJV
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and
those who love it will eat its fruit.
WORD TO PONDER: BREAKING THE CHILDHOOD VOWS 11/05/04
Without notice, you have been bound by the words of your
mouth, taken as vows in your childhood. My dear friend,
this has caused you woundings which are so deep, even
you do not know from whence they came. When you fail to
measure up to such things, it brings upon you guilt,
condemnation, shame, a sense of failure, and ultimately
Some of these vows you accepted to become responsible
for another, when you were much too young to take such a
responsibility! You were destined to fail simply
because this was much too much for any human being to
carry, let alone a child. Other vows were spoken that
for as long as you lived, you would never … Yes, that
is a common vow spoken in deep emotion, with life long
cords. Other vows were self imposed labels of failure
and calling yourself names. Loose yourself from such
words, confess them to Me and to another and break their
hold upon yourself.
Eccl 5:2-5 NKJV
Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your
heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in
heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be
few. For a dream comes through much activity, And a
fool's voice is known by his many words. When you make
a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; For He has no
pleasure in fools. Pay what you have vowed — Better not
to vow than to vow and not pay.
