Foolish boy, non-entity, you will amount to nothing in the future. These are but few of the words that some parents utter in the lives of their children, and it sometimes has a massive effect on the children! Words could be described or explained as lines one uses or say for performance.
Words carry a lot of power! Words are power itself! Let’s take a look at the world, at the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, in creation; God used words, He said “let there be and all things that were made were made.
Again, the bible tells us that in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the Word was God. This tells us that, there is a spirit behind every word that we speak. We must note that whatever proceeds out of our mouth will be held on and executed by a force or a spirit.
Let’s choose our words wisely and carefully, bearing in mind that we will account for every ideal word that comes out of our mouth, [Matthew 12:36]. In our dealings with people, let us note that what we say will be binding on the people or us.
Let us therefore always keep in mind that, words are the foundation of everything in life. To get a woman /man to love you, you must speak. In a relationship and its survival, one must speak, in an interview, speech is key, in everything and anything we speak.
In every situation in your life, you must speak, the question now is; “what words do we speak or utter at points in our lives”? I have come to realize that, we are what we say/speak, our tongue and words carry great potential either to make or break us, and words provide us with a bold affirmation of our innermost thought. What are we saying in our situation?
What words do we use especially on our children? Our Parents? Our friends and our family? We must be careful to utter positive words always, our children, partners and so on are what we say to them, we are creating, so we must be careful.
For instance, a parent telling their child; you are blessed will have a blessed child, why? Because it’s a process of creation! We are making them who we want with our words! Let’s not forget that death and life are in the power of the tongue [Proverbs 18:21]; in dealing with children, let’s also know that they are God’s gift to us [Psalms 127:3] and we will account over them.
Let’s choose our words wisely and consciously. Many lives have been destroyed or wrecked as a result of words that were uttered to or by the person. Some words are piercing. They pierce one deep into their souls. People have said words that have carried effect on people till date. We most of the times get people being asked by pastors to go to their parents of certain people to reverse things that have been said against them.
In our hard moments when our spirits are down, let’s be careful what we say. Let us make the right investments. Let’s watch what we say out of pain! In our happy moments let’s be mindful also. Another example is words we utter when having sex or making love. They seriously bind on us, let’s not take them for granted.
With respect to our partners, we must spend quality time to sow good words into the lives, as they will become what we say. If you keep praying and saying positive things about your partner, in no time, it will take its form and shape in their lives.
Let us speak positively, let’s not forget another important thing; we are who and what we say or speak, people will always judge you and your character by what and how you speak. Imagine seeing a fine and polished, well-dressed lady, you decide to engage her in a talk and all you hear are insults, it clearly defines who the person is! What we say, when and how you say it, will always play a role in your life.
It can either open or close doors, certain utterances we make can even draw or drive people and opportunities away from us. Let’s be careful what we say, for the bible tells us that, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh [Matthew 12: 3]; according to James 3:8, no one can tame the tongue, but one who doesn’t stumble in his words; bible said is a perfect man.
Luke 6:45; tells us also that the good man brings good things out of the good of his heart and the evil man also brings forth from his heart. Let’s be wise in our utterances. Our words also turn to influence, words, are like the currency for every form of communication. Let us pray for wisdom and patience in our dealings with people so we don’t utter words that destroy others, relationships and even our very own lives.
Words are power! Let us use the power available to us well to the glory of God and for the betterment of our lives and that of others as well.
LET GOD HELP US!
