"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, . . ." (Proverbs 18:21NKJV)
Did you know that words are creative? Words can either be creative in a positive
way or in a negative way. There is power in your words. With your words you can
either make someone's day great by your kindness, compassion or even a timely
compliment, or with your words you can make someone’s day miserable with
criticism, complaint and defamation. Your words have power. "Death and life are
in the power of the tongue."
But it is not so much what others say to you or about you that have power over
your day or your life. It is what you tell yourself. If you speak in the affirmative
about your life, you will create and draw to you what you speak. If you declare
God's blessings over yourself, over your family, over your finances, over your
health, then what you declare will activate those blessing to be yours. Conversely,
if you speak negativity, bitterness and poverty over your life, you will create just
that and bring it to you.
1. What are you telling yourself about you?
2. What are you speaking that you are seeing manifested in your life?
3. Do you think and speak words of affirmation, exaltation and empowerment
over yourself or do you think and speak destructive words over your life?
WHAT ARE YOU SAYING TO YOURSELF?
