Luke 21:14-15 (KJV)
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
You can remove the anxiety and worry from your life if you will settle it in your heart. The Words of Jesus Christ instructs us to “settle it therefore in your hearts”.
There are several key words that are critical in this passage that are designed to produce positive results of a desired thing. The first word is settle which stems from the root word set. Settle or set is a verb (used with object) 1. to appoint, fix, or resolve definitely and conclusively; agree upon (as time, price, or conditions). 2. to place in a desired state (1) The object settle in this passage is “it”. The “it” were the adversities that He was foretelling the people that they would be faced with. The second is “not to meditate”. He is cautioning the people not to worry, not to fear or have anxiety. And the last key words are “what you shall answer”.
An settled mind and heart will prepare our mouths to only speak as He speaks. When adversities in our lives come we will speak as He speaks. It is absolutely critical to have an established heart that trust and believe the Word of God. We must resolved conclusively this day to accept the mouth and wisdom that He has promised to give us because out of the heart flows the issues of life.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23-24)
Settle it today. Declare and decree according to the Word of God my heart is settled. My mouth will only speak as He speaks.
