Something I’ve been pondering lately…is words; the words we as people speak.
Back in the bible days, when different men or women of God spoke something, it happened. When Jesus was on this earth, He only said stuff that he wanted to come to pass, stuff that he wanted to see take place. He never spoke something that didn’t end up happening. We as Christians are supposed to be like little “Christs” going around doing the same works he did, and even greater. BUT, how are we supposed to do that, if we’re constantly speaking words of doubt, words of death, negative words, etc.
I believe it’s time for people to take the words that they speak, more seriously. Act like you want what you say, to come to pass. That’s how faith works, isn’t it? When you say, I have faith that God is going to heal me, but then the next second complain about how you want to die cause the pain is so great. You’re speaking two contradictory things, it’s obviously not going to work. You can’t operate in faith if you are speaking words of doubt or fear. But if you speak life, it WILL come to pass.
Same with moods. If you want to feel happy, or joyful…STOP speaking how depressed you are. You may not realize it, but the words you speak, whether in public, or in private, affect YOU. These words affect you, your mood, your attitude, and your outlook on life. Instead, look for just ONE thing thats positive. Think on that, speak THAT, I guarantee you, your outlook and mood will change. I promise.
Lastly, your words affect others. People can tell how you feel towards them, whether you say it or not. If someone is bugging you, and you decide to not say anything about it, but still hold something in your heart against them, they CAN feel it. Same in a positive way, people can know how your feeling, even if you don’t say anything, they aren’t as dumb as you think. :)
In Proverbs 18:21 It says that life and death are in the power of the tongue. It’s time for us Christians to watch our words and actions more and more. It’s time to treat our words like the WILL come to pass, cause soon enough, they will start to come to pass. What will you do then?
Lets change the way we speak! :) Be positive:)
