Words are very powerful,they will either build or destroy,that is why we must be careful,what we accept into our lives and what we receive through our ear gates.
The words you receive will certainly affect your life,especially if you receive and accept them,let us take a look at how powerful spoken words are,especially when received and accepted.
POWER OF A SPOKEN WORD
Jesus said in John 6:63 ” It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.”
The words that i speak are Holy Spirit motivated,inspired and it gives life,the life spoken of here is not the natural life,that fades with time but the Zoë life,the God kind of life,that is eternal and never dies,the life that is only renewed by the days,it gets better.
The life of God that we receive in Christ Jesus can only get better and better,the bible says that “the path of the righteous can only get brighter and brighter”,we grow from glory to glory and from grace to grace,as we receive the word of God into our spirit.
It is the Spirit,who quickens,speaking of the Holy Spirit and he does that through the spoken word of God,as we receive into our hearts the spoken word of God,in Greek the Rhema of God,our spirits are made alive,quickened and the bible says if that spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in us,he will quicken our mortal bodies.
So we can experience eternal life even here in this world,through the word of God and the life giving Spirit that we received when we accepted Jesus as lord and savior.
The spoken word has the power to give life or bring death,that’s why the bible says that,death and life are in the power of the tongue,there is so much power in our tongue,when you speak a word from your heart,you need to realize that you didnt just speak but you released a spirit.
WORDS ARE SPIRIT
Someone once said,we can only give what we are and not what we have.Think about that,we can only release what we are,further said out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh,you can only release what you are.
The bible says “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”Luke 6:43-45
A good man out of the good treasure in his heart,brings forth good and a evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil,you can only produce what you are.A good tree will produce a good fruit,for every tree is known by his fruit,and your mouth is the exit point for the intents of your heart,out of the abundance of your heart,the mouth speaks.
So when you speak a word,you have just released something that will either build or destroy,but you speak what you are,what you have stored up inside of your heart.We must be careful what we say and what we receive into our hearts.
SNARED BY THE WORDS OF YOUR MOUTH
We are snared by the words of our mouth,that is what Proverbs 6:2 says,in other words the words spoken by others against us,to do us harm or to discredit us,can not have any effect on us if we refuse it and not accept it.
We must guard our hearts the Bible says,for out of it flows the issues of life.Close you ear gates to any spoken word that does not edify you,any spoken word that brings you down and causes you not to be productive,close your ears to them.
Guard your heart,protect your heart from negative people,people who only point out the fault in you so as to hurt you and make your inactive,words are powerful,but only when accepted.
That is why we must acquaint ourselves more with the words of God,the spoken word of God.
The word is neigh thee,its in your mouth,the word that will bring your progress is in your mouth,when you accept and declare to your self negative words you will be trapped by those words,but instead speak positive words to your life,your life will align to the words of your mouth.
The word of God as powerful as it is may not work any good in your life,except it is heard and believed.With the heart man believes and with the mouth confession is made unto righteousness.
THERE IS A WORD SPOKEN OVER YOUR LIFE
We need to realize that there is a word already spoken over our lives before the foundation of the world.The scriptures says that the plans i have for you are not evil but good,so that you will have a hope and a future.
These words are found in the word of God and when we align our thoughts and life according to the spoken word ,you will have good success.
Joshua was told to spend time and meditate on these words,to meditate doesn’t only mean to think on but to also mutter to yourself the word of God,and as he does that he will have good success.Joshua 1:8.
There is a word of prophecy spoken over your life,seek and find that word,once you discover it and begin to live by it,you will find good success.
Jesus came to live the spoken word over his life,everything he did here on earth was according to the word spoken over his life,so that prophesy could be fulfilled.
Psalm 139:16 ” Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your
book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them”
God has fashioned out the life you should leave,there is a book that contains that and that is the word of God,to find out that path that has been set out for you to live,you need to get acquainted with the word of God.
There is a word spoken over your life,stop believing the negative words people speak to you,start speaking the words already spoken about you in the word of God.
THE WORD OF A PROPHET
Our progress in life is always connected to words.The mindset that we have today came as a result of a word,our habits and even the way of life we live now,came as a result of words that have been spoken over our lives,that we accepted and walked with.
The words that a father speaks over the life of his little child as they grow up will go along way to affect them positively or negatively.
When a negative word is spoken we need to realize that the spirit of the power of the air,picks up that word and makes it effective in the life of the person its spoken over,especially if that person is not a believer.
Words are powerful because of the spirit backing every word and there is a spirit backing every word,the Holy Spirit backs up the word of the believer,especially good words,and the devil backs up evil words.
Every good and perfect gift comes from above,from the father of light,every good gift,that means bad gifts do not come from God.
The prophets word is known to be heaven inspired and totally backed by God.By a prophet here i mean someone called by God to do his work,it could be your pastor,a man of God as they are called.
It is important that we know a prophet has heavens backing.
I remember the story in 1Samuel 1,about the Family of Elkanah,who had two wives,Hannah and Peninnah,Peninnah was blessed with children but Hannah was barren and without child,it was recorded that Peninnah would mock Hannah and she did it continuously till Hannah was vexed,she began going to the temple to seek the face of God,until one time when she went to pray,she was muttering words as if she was drunk,then the priest noticed her and asked why she was drunk in the day time.
She opened her mouth and told him,that she was not drunk but was depressed because of her barrenness,the bible didnt even say the priest prayed for her,it records that he told her Go in peace and may God grant your petition,she belived the word of the priest and went home,not too long she was with child,but this happened only after her encounter with the priest.
2Chronicles 20:20 says,believe in my prophets and you will prosper,our prosperity is tied to the words of your prophet.When the prophet speaks he speaks Gods mind,and he speaks a word in the right season,there is nothing as good as a word spoken in the right time.
Another story is in Luke 5,where Peter and his brothers,had just finished fishing and caught nothing,but Jesus asked them to set out again but they said,we have toiled all night but caught nothing,but Jesus insisted and Peter said at thy word,and they had a net breaking,boat sinking catch.
The words we give ourselves to,will go in a long way to affect us positively or negatively,discard any word from you that brings you down and makes you depressed,don’t spend anytime with people who only bring to light to your flaws and mistakes,but stay around those who encourage and bring the best out of you,no matter who they are.
