The Power of Words


untitled (2)

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.  Proverbs 18:21

We have been created in the image of God.  God who said “Light be” and there was light.  His words have creative power.  Being created in His image means that our words have creative power also.

My co-worker has been vocally stressing about spring for weeks now.  She keeps saying it’s supposed to be the worst allergy season ever and she just knows she is going to be sick a lot.  And you know what? She probably is going to be sick because she spoke that into existence.

Listen to people and you will hear all kinds of death being spoken into their existence.  Things that don’t seem like that big of a deal like my co-worker’s lamentations about allergies.  But our words have power.  They either speak death or they speak life.

It’s just as easy to say, “By God’s grace, I will make it through this allergy season with no symptoms in my body”.

I caught myself saying quietly to myself “wow, this hurts” every time I took a step.  Well, it did hurt.  But when I took stock of what I was saying, I change my words to “I am healed”  with every step I took.  And do you know what?  The pain lessened drastically.

What words are you speaking over your life?

Whatever words you are speaking, you will eat the fruit of those words.  Purpose to speak words that bring a harvest of good fruit for yourself and others. Purpose to speak words that line up with the word of God.

Father God, thank You that I have been created in Your image.  What an awesome thought that is and tremendous responsibility.  Thank you for the grace to be mindful of my words; nudge me when I am speaking death and help me to remember that it’s just as easy to speak words of life.  Help me to put a guard over my mouth that my words line up with Yours.  Amen.

Do you need healing?  I would love to pray for and with you, please let me know.

Do you have a healing testimony?  I would love to hear it and share it with others.
