The Oil Of Joy - Destiny Cycle
24 so that the Scriptures might be fulfilled: 'When they see what I do, they will learn nothing. When they hear what I say, they will not understand. Otherwise, they will turn to me and be forgiven.'’
Words affect our thinking, thinking affect emotions, emotions affect decisions, decisions affect actions, actions become habits, habits form our character and character shapes our destiny (Creflo Dollar).
This is full cycle which determines the direction of our lives. Therefore if we are always hearing negative words then it is going to lead us down a negative path and vice versa with positive words. As believers we should choose to fill our life with the word of God because it is what will move us into the plan of God. It will bring out our spiritual emotions which are within the fruit of the spirit these include love, peace and joy. But if we listen to negative words, it will stir up fleshly emotions like fear, anxiety, sadness and discouragement.
Emotions are feelings on the inside which are created by pleasure or pain to move us in a particular direction (Creflo Dollar). The verse above confirms this concept. Jesus was teaching them that anyone who pays attention to hearing and understanding the word of God will have results which will change their lives. It will make them repent and God will forgive them. To repent means to turn away completely from what we used to. However repentance begins with a decision which is determined by words spoken to us. After the decision, we will go through the process of changing. Therefore it is important to evaluate everything we hear by the word of God to make sure it is not leading us on a negative path.

Prayer: Father, I thank You for this revelation. Help me to make time to hear Your word by speaking it and listening to anointed teachers in Jesus Name. Amen.
