THE TIPPING POINT: IT’S RIGHT ON THE TIP OF YOUR TONGUE by Teri Johnson
In these days with the world filled with adversity, uncertainty & chaos, the Lord flooded me with His Powerful Peace & Presence as He highlighted these 4 important points to tip the scales on the right side, bringing His Righteousness, Peace, Prosperity & Joy.
1. OUR SMALL THINGS ARE A BIG DEAL TO GOD
I always love when I remember God has numbered the very hairs on my head, and that He continually is thinking wonderful things about me. He loves to get the Glory by pruning things back to the bare roots and then He does something spectacular beyond what I can imagine or think, bringing in a huge harvest. And in the most dire situations, He loves to do something out of what seems to be nothing. When He asks us to do our part, and give to Him, He always asks us to give NOT according to what we DON'T have, but according to what we DO have. We always do the easy part and God always does the hard part.
The Two Small Fish
One example is when Jesus asked those in the hungry & needy crowd, to have the little boy bring to Him what he DID have. And we all know of the miracle of multiplication. The truth be known today, all God’s Children already have everything we need, inside of us. He’s more than enough! We have treasure within our earthen vessels, we are God’s “Jars of Clay”.
“There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”
John 6:9 NKJV
Your Small Mustard Seed of Faith
Referring to our miraculous strength, power and ability, the Greek word ‘Dunamis” (coming from the word Dynamite) appears 120 times in the NT. We have within us, highly concentrated dunamis explosive power, and it just takes a little bit to move the mountains we face.
And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
Luke 17: 5-6 NKJV
The Small Rudder of Your Tongue
In the midst of the tidal waves, and storms on the sea of Life, our tongue is our tool to turn the ship and navigate into peaceful waters and safe ports of haven.
Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.
James 3:4 NKJV
2. JUST SAY IT IS SO
He reminded me that, the Kingdom of God is “Voice Activated”; that my faith activated, expressed and working through love is powerful, and life-giving.
For [if we are] in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor un-circumcision means anything, but only faith activated and expressed and working through love.
Galatians 5:6 AMP
Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life,
and the talkative person will reap the consequences.
Proverbs 18:21 TPT
And whatever you ask for in prayer, believing, you will receive.
Matthew 21:22 AMP
So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;
It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.
Mark 11:23 TPT
Metaphors of Mountain and Sea
Sea= Nations or the Sea of Humanity
Oros: The Greek word for Mountain= action verb: to lift up, carry off and take with you.
We have been given the active power of faith to take and carry the power and authority of God’s Mountain, the Realm of His Kingdom with us wherever we go!
3. I DECLARE
Declare Restoration & Double for Your Trouble
Generation after generation will declare more of your greatness and declare more of your glory.
Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.
Declare Your Future in God
Declare what is to be and state your case. Go ahead and take counsel together. Who knew all about this and declared it long ago? Was it not I, Yahweh? There is no god apart from me. I am a righteous God and a Savior. There is no one you can compare to me.
Isaiah 45:21 TPT

Mark 14:23 TPT
Declare The Power of the Cross of Christ
For the Anointed One has sent me on a mission, not to see how many I could baptize, but to proclaim the good news. And I declare this message stripped of all philosophical arguments that empty the cross of its true power. For I trust in the all-sufficient cross of Christ alone.
1 Corinthians 1:17 TPT
Declare the Fulfillment of God’s Promises, Plans & Purpose
I declare from the beginning how it will end and foretell from the start what has not yet happened. I decree that my purpose will stand, and I will fulfill my every plan.

A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is!

It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord Psalm
commanded the blessing— Life forevermore.

I “Do” Season

Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you.
