Now we have received, not the spirit of
the world, but the spirit which is of God;
that we might know the things that are
freely given to us of God. Which things
also we speak… (1 Corinthians 2:12-13).

As Christians, we belong to a real spiritual
kingdom: the Kingdom of God’s love-Son. In
that kingdom, we have our peculiar Kingdom language.
We don’t just talk; we speak the wisdom of God; that’s
the language of our Kingdom: “Howbeit we speak
wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the
wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world,
that come to nought” ( 1 Corinthians 2:6).
Too many Christians don’t understand how to
speak the Kingdom language, because they’ve never
been rightly and adequately taught, and as a result, they
talk fear, and unbelief. Some of them call it “reality”;
“Let’s face reality” they’d say, referring to the things
that their senses can perceive. The only reality is God’s
Don’t say you’re broke just because there’s no
money in your pocket or bank account. Instead,
affirm, “The Lord is my shepherd and I lack nothing;
He’s brought me into a large place, a place of wealth

Somebody says, “But we have to say it as it is; if
I feel a headache why can’t I say I have a headache?”
You can’t say, “I have a headache,” because headaches
don’t exist in our Kingdom. The things we speak are the
things God has freely given to us, and sickness, disease,
failure, lack, and death aren’t part of those things.
When you speak contrary to your divine nature
and provisions in Christ, it’s an “illegal operation”; it’s
like entering the wrong codes into a programme or
computer system; it won’t work.
Therefore, speak the wisdom of God always. Only
affirm your glorious life in Christ. When you declare, “I’m
the manifestation of the glory of God,” you’re speaking
the language of our Kingdom; you’re communicating
with the right sound code. Hallelujah!
I speak the wisdom of God always, and the
circumstances of life are subdued before me. I
reason with the mind of Christ, and my outlook on
life is from the perspective of the Word. I’m making
unstoppable progress in life and ministry, in Jesus’
