The Power of Your Words

“The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips.” Proverbs 16:23

The scripture tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. God Himself spoke the worlds into existence by the creative power of words ~ WOW think about that for a moment!

You can bless your future with your words, or you can curse it. There are many influences over our words ~ in the heat of the moment, we can let our emotions tell us what to say. We can listen to what others say and allow their opinions and ideas to influence our words. We can even be influenced by what we watch on TV, the internet or read in the news, but notice what today’s verse tells us that a wise person does ~ a wise person listens to their heart and lets their heart teach them what to say. As a believer, when you listen to your heart, you are allowing the Spirit of God to influence your words. When you speak from your heart, you are speaking from the heart of God.

We all have seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During those times, it’s easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are ~ maybe it's a bad medical report, a strained relationship, or maybe it's a financial obstacle, however the more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead of "talking" about our problems, we’ve got to dig our heels in and say, “No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. I’m not going to speak lack. I’m not going to speak fear. I’m choosing a different report. I believe the report of the Lord which says, ‘I can do all things through Christ. I can defeat this sickness. I can break this addiction. I can have peace in my home. I can see restoration in my relationships.’ ”

Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak His Word over those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! Speak to your mountains and they will be moved!

Take time today, listen to your heart. Take time to be still and quiet before the Lord. Allow Him to teach you what to say. As you submit your words and ways to Him, He will direct your path and lead you into victory in every area of your life!

Father God, thank You for giving me power in the words of my mouth. Help me to stay tuned in to You by listening to my heart. Teach me to use my words to always speak life and blessing over myself and others. Help me to speak to the mountains in my life and say, “Be moved!” Today, I declare blessings, favor and victory over my future in Jesus’ name. Amen.
