MASTER YOUR WORDS
Habitually we all say things that are not positive about our lives, situations, kids, jobs, spouses. Well, you get the picture. If we realized how important our words are we would take time to master our words better.
It is almost instinct to say I don’t feel well when you don’t feel well, or I have a headache, or little Sanai has a bad cold, she is going to be down for a couple of days. But, think about what is being said. Words have a lot of power. The world was spoken into existence by words (Hebrew 11:3). Now that is some kind of power.
We do not think about the power of words, because we use them so often. It’s like the air we breathe. We know how important it is, but unless you can’t breathe you don’t even think about it, you just breathe.
I have become more careful of my words, trying always to be mindful and I still slip sometimes. When I talk to other people that just say anything without thinking I want to scream! Don’t say that! Are you listening to yourself?
I know I was just like that not too long ago until I really studied this in the word, a prayer that the Holy Spirit help me master my words. Just think death (not just of people, on dreams, projects i.e.) and life (victory in all things) are in the power of the tongue (words).
Proverbs 12: 18 The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 17:27 The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint…
So, think about what you say before you say it. If you say you have a headache you will have a headache. Instead, you can simply say a positive affirmation, quote a healing scripture like Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed, Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise. Whatever, you focus on you give strength to, so focus on the healing, the job, the wayward child coming back home, the marriage being restored, finances press down heaped up and overflowing.
I challenge you. Speak wholeness and happiness, every day out loud and all the time!
You will be surprised how just as you speak negativity into your life you can speak all things that are good into your life. Watch your mindset, your attitude, and your atmosphere change. Master your words!
