THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS!
Updated: Apr 11
Every word we speak has power for good or for evil. As a result, we must factor in the power of our words before we speak them.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]." (Proverbs 18:21 AMPC)
"Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose." (Proverbs 18:21 MSG)
Your words are powerful, they are a creative force. Ask yourself before you speak, "Is this something I want to manifest in my life or the life of the person I am speaking to?"
We must be very careful with the words we speak. We're created in the image of God. We have His DNA. He spoke the world into existence and with our words we speak our lives, and the lives of others, into existence.
I really don't want my words to hurt others.
This Scripture helped me put things in perspective:
"And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.” (Matthew 12:36-37 NLT)
As a result, this Scripture has been a daily prayer for me:
"Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips." (Psalm 141:3 AMPC)
Let this Scripture be the umpire, guarding the words you speak from now on:
“Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it.” (Ephesians 4:29 AMPC)
