“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your site, oh, Lord, my rock, and my Redeemer.” - Galatians 5:1 The words we use are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble. Consequently, many of us know, or have experienced the pain of someone’s words. Or we ourselves have used our words to hurt someone else. Basically, our words can become a weapon, “ death, and life, on the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”- Proverbs 18:21. So, why are the words we use significant? Because our words either lift someone up or tear them down.
And Luke 6:45 Jesus says that people can’t be judged by what they say, and do because these things reveal what is really inside the person. If you want to know what is on the inside of a person, you’ll listen to what comes out of their mouth on a regular basis. If a person is angry, rude or immoral on a regular basis, you can be assured that is what they’re feeling on the inside.The same is true if they are encouraging and polite, the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart.
The words we use, spoken out, loud, or in our thoughts, have a major influence on the outcome of our lives. Thoughts become things. Your words impact how you view your family your job even yourself with so much on the line, it’s vital you choose your words wisely. Here is an example of a daily affirmation you can repeat, and get in the habit of speaking over your life.
I choose to speak love - I choose to speak life – I choose to speak faith over fear.
Your words will shape your behaviors, habits, values, and Destiny – choose wisely.
