THE WORD WE SPEAK !! LIFE or DEATH ?
Chineke God!, its been a week of blessing so far. God has really been opening my eyes and heart to so many things I never had any idea of . I know this week is going to be a blessed week for you too! .
Now to the main thing today my loud thought will be about something very special. something that concerns everyone. Its about the word we speak! Am gonna quickly take us to the bible here *I hope we don’t mind *? Yea! We don’t .The bible talks about the word we speak as giving great joy when spoken right (Proverbs 15:23) .
You know,I always see the words we speak as food we eat .Imagine when you don’t eat an healthy food what happens ? The body becomes sick and all. so also the word we speak, when we speak unhealthy words its affects our soul and the people around us that hear it .but when we speak great things it edifies our soul .
The word we speak when used in proper way can
Edify, encourage and give confidence! .A right word spoken at the right time can actually be life changing .
For those who know me too well knows am always very careful when it comes to words .I always make sure not to be careless with the words I hear or the words I speak because
1. The words we speak are life or death .
2. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks .
I try as much as possible to feed my heart with something good and that is the instruction given to us by God that everyone has to obey .
Its hurts me so much when I hear people go into word war. Most especially when it has to do with little children ,the word we speak is like a seed that grows in peoples life over time. when words are spoken wrongly or rightly it settles down into our soul .The word we speak go out from our mouth and go into our ear, and other peoples ear then it drops into our souls and it either gives us either happiness, sadness,confidence or discouragement. Now you can imagine when you speak the number of people its gives life or death ! .
Am not saying sometimes people won’t push us to speak wrong. Ofcourse ! We are human bound to get angry and express our selves but in doing so ,You have to be very careful. so while you were trying to convey your message it doesn’t end up messing everything up!
*Joyce Meyer said, when we understand the power of words and we realize we can choose what we say or think then our lives can be transformed*.
If you have noticed you’re always in a low spirit or its like that with people around you, then you should take a quick check on the words you speak or the words spoken around you .If your family or job or relationship is going through one problem or the other, then you need to change the word you’ve been speaking around it and start speaking life,greatness ,success,and see what happens. Because the words we speak has great affect our spirit .
Let’s start speaking good things all the time and cultivate the habit of confessing greatness. when you’re in a tight corner with nothing good to say its better to keep quite until we can gain control of what we speak and never let it control us .
I just have a question for us .Have we been speaking Life or Death ? Remember its all in our mouth we just have to choose one and choose wisely !!
