Everything you say can and will be used against you – or for you. Regardless of race, gender, age or financial status, words have the ability to release a blessing or unleash a curse. Do not underestimate the power to transform your life through the words spoken from your own mouth.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. – Proverbs 18:21
So what would your life look like if every word you spoke actually manifested? Do your words produce hope and life?
“This is the start of something good” “Anything is possible”
“I am healed and healthy beyond measure” “I believe in you”
Or do your words produce hopelessness and death?
“I am sick and tired of…” “I am losing my mind”
“This ____ is killing me” “Nothing is working, I give up!”
Too often, I have let words associated with fear, anger, pain or doubt slip out of my mouth. I must continually take inventory of my words and thoughts to create a positive atmosphere around me. My goal is to be filled with words and thoughts that align with the promises of God. Then, I will naturally speak words of love, victory and faith in every situation!
