The power of life and death is in our words. We may not ALWAYS be very conscious of what we are saying as we can sometimes be influenced by lyrics from a song or a catch phrase from a television show.
Using phrases like “I can never be as good as …….” or “I cannot get a good break” is a way of us talking ourselves out of what could be God’s will.
What are you saying today? What are you saying over your:
5)Love one who has not given their life to Jesus as yet
When you say something loud enough, you hear it and a seed is planted. I would like to impress upon you to say things that will encourage you and lift you up, like, I am the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21 paraphrased).
Words are powerful, let’s use them to impact the world for JESUS.
I would like to share with you a sample of words from the TobyMac song “Speak Life”
Some days, life feels perfect.
Other days it just ain't workin'.
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between.
Some days the tongue gets twisted;
Other days my thoughts just fall apart.
I do, I don't, I will, I won't,
It's like I'm drowning in the deep.
Well it's crazy to imagine,
Words from our lips as the arms of compassion,
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die.
So speak life, speak life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak life.
When the sun won't shine and you don't know why.
Look into the eyes of the broken-hearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak...
You speak life, you speak life.
The tongue has the power of life and death….. –Proverbs 18:21 NIV
