THE POWER OF WORDS- “GOOD WORDS”
Power of Words – “Good Words”
For the last couple of weeks, we have been talking about the power of our words.
Proverbs 18:21 The Message Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
Another translation states, “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue.” We all must remember that what we say influences our world around us and in us. The words that I say begin to effect what I think about myself and about the journey that I am on. When we are traveling on a journey of faith, we must remember that what we see currently, is not always what the end will look like. We must keep traveling on the “road” and the changes will come based on what we say and believe.
Proverbs 23:7 New King James Version For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…
Luke 6:45 New King James Version A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
We are talking today about “good words”. The treasure of what we have placed in our heart, begins to come out of our mouth. It can be a treasure of bad or a treasure of good. It is totally based on what we have stored up in our hearts. Just think, if God had said just what He saw instead of what he believed in His heart. God had a treasure in His heart of a sun, moon, plants, water and earth. He saw in His heart a man and woman to be just like Him. I believe that He still sees that image in His heart; and what He believes will still come to manifestation.
What can good words do?
Proverbs 16:24 New King James Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
Pleasant words surround you with goodness and peace. Peace in this world today is essential to success. When we begin to worry and be afraid and complain about the things and situations in our life, it leads us to despair and depression and confusion. Those negative expressions of our feelings are not from God. God comes to bring us peace and strength and wisdom for all situations in our lives. (John 14:27, Ps 31:24, James 1:5)
One of the most difficult things to do is to stop and think about what we say in a very hard situation. My prayer is that after this devotional you will begin to think about your words more and more. The words that you speak over your children, your spouse, your finances, your job and co-workers are essential to the outcome of your situation. Even your body listens to your words. If you are facing a disease or sickness today, begin to speak the Word of God over your body. Begin to say words of healing over your body and begin to meditate those scriptures and see (envision) yourself healed and whole. Your words will begin to frame your world. In Proverbs 16:24, it says our pleasant or good words is healing to our bones.
Mark 11:23-24 Expanded Bible I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘·Go [Be lifted up], fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your ·mind [heart] and believe that what you say will happen, ·God will do it for you [it will be done for you]. 24 So I tell you to believe that you have received ·the things [everything] you ask for in prayer, and ·God will give them to you [you will receive them].
At some point we must start believing what the bible says. God has spoken many things that are hard to imagine to the limited mind that we have created for ourselves. But we are called to renew our minds to the things of God, so that we can see the goodness and power of our God and what He has placed on the inside of us.
Our Faith! We have faith to move mountains and remove diseases and even to raise the dead; according to the bible. Huh!! We must renew our mind to the truth of who we are and who God is, or we will miss out on the fullness of what God has called us to do on this earth. I don’t want to miss one thing!
Consider your words. Good words fill your atmosphere with good and surrounds you with the presence of God. When bad or negative words fill your atmosphere, it pushes God away and He simply cannot be God over those words. Always remember there is a god of this world that will gladly take what you say and use it against you and try to bring to pass every bad thing that you and I say.
Let’s empower the angels of heaven to take our words and bring to pass all the things that we are believing for. Fill our atmosphere with the good words of the Word of God and positive words that will frame our world with the desires of our heart as well as the desires of God.
