Your words are real things and will produce what you speak, especially when you speak with emotions in your heart, even if you are joking. Therefore, BEWARE what you speak, as your words will return its physical equivalent. Meaning you can literary speak life or death to yourself or your circumstance. As King Solomon states;
‘Life and death are in the power of the tongue’ Proverbs 18:21
I was listening to a video where a well known man was commending his beautiful wife during a presentation, explaining why he loves her dearly. He went on to say as a side statement, that he has lived well with her and intends to die with her (He said this emotionally, albeit jokingly). A couple years later they were both dead although both still in their prime:( and guess what, they died together just as the man had emotionally expressed in his words. This is the power of words, it was not a prophesy.
To understand the power of what you speak or your words, is to understand the ability you have to create the results you want to have in your life.
From the fruit of his lips, a man will be filled with good things as surely as the works of his hands reward him’ Proverbs 12:14
Words are like fruits from your lips!
Amazing!! This indicates that your words are fruits you are producing from your mouth – (Good or Bad ones). Your words will surely reward you with a corresponding result just as the amount of physical effort you put into your work will give you a corresponding result. In other words, you can succeed or fail based on (The fruit of your mouth) – the words you speak to yourself or about your circumstance.
How to maximise the power of words for success;
First understand what the tongue is for; ‘Life and death are in the POWER of the tongue’ Note the word ‘POWER’ – The tongue is a powerful instrument. Although one of the smallest members of the body, it is not just for communication but has the potent ability to create or destroy its target. Most people know that an untamed tongue can destroy someone’s life emotionally and even physically. But this is only the flip side of its use. The tongue is actually a powerful tool we have as co-creators to speak life, build and heal ourselves and others. But because people have failed to understand the power and purpose of the tongue, it has been used to hurt, destroy and kill. Hurting themselves and others due to lack of knowledge….. ‘People perish for lack of knowledge’ Hosea 4:6
- Once you understand the power of words, then determine what you have unknowingly created within your life that you are unhappy with. Start to change things by replacing the negative words you have spoken in the past with positive ones. For instance, if you have always said to yourself that you are a lazy person, chances are that someone said this to you enough times and you believed it and once your mind processes this as your truth then you accept it and begin to say it to yourself – So you become even lazier. Now to change this, you will have to start saying the opposite (e.g I am hardworking and always meet my targets) Things may not change immediately as your inner mind is processing the new words you are speaking. However, be assured that you have set things in motion to change and you will see the results if you persevere.
- Speak what you want to see, not what your current circumstance. Remember, just as habits you have built for years will take time to change, your circumstances will too. Nevertheless, these are principles, what you keep saying you will eventually create in your life and circumstance. Therefore, be deliberate with your words. Good luck x
