How powerful are the words we speak? (Why you are Where You Are?)4 min read
Words are so powerful because they can shape our very future and this accounts for the reason you are where you are today.
Words are seeds, when sown (spoken and accepted/believed), they produce a harvest. This harvest is the reality that you experience.
The Bible makes us understand that the world as we know it today was created by spoken words – The spoken words of God.
The words you have accepted into your life and the principles you apply shape your attitude towards life and give expression to the reality you experience.
“Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.”Proverbs 18:21 TPT
Long ago, a friend told me that “God is not a Waster of Resources.”
Within that period, I was applying for a job in a firm, and this firm kept calling me for varieties of interviews.
I spent all my money running around for different interviews, I even borrowed money from friends and family for transportation to convey me to the place of the business interview.
I spent so many resources, money, time, and energy that I became frustrated and began to lose hope, but somehow my spirit cling to the word that my friend – “God is not a waster of resources.”
After about 4 to 6 interviews and about 6 – 8 months waiting period after the interviews, I got a call from the firm and my employment letter was mailed to me.
The power of words accepted by the spirit is unimaginable.
They are so powerful that they can give life and take life as we saw in the book of proverbs.
Words are like seeds, once planted into your heart by hearing (reception) and watered by believing them, they are bound to germinate.
A friend told me how a prophet told her mom that she won’t survive her illness, the mom accepted that prophecy, and today she is no more.
Another friend told me how a genuine man of God told his friend that his father won’t survive his illness, his friend rejected that prophecy and sort another man of God who believed in him and gave him a favorable prophecy. And today his father is alive.
This was also the case of King Hezekiah who Prophet Isaiah told he was to die, he rejected it and God added more life to him.
5. “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, `This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now, you will go up to the temple of the LORD. 6. I will add fifteen years to your life.2 Kings 20:5-6b
So what words have your spirit accepted?
What words are you running with?
“The words I speak to you are Spirit and life.”John 6:63b TPT
Words are not neutral. They shape and define our lives.
What do you believe? Do you believe God is for you and not against you? Do you believe He is on your side? Do you believe He has a plan and hope for your future?
Words shape your destiny and the words you believe fuels your conviction with sponsor the principles you apply in your life.
When I see great men, I ask myself, what do they know that I don’t know?
What principle are they applying that I’m not applying?
What makes the difference in the life of individuals are the words they accept into their spirit and the principles they apply.
Start today to evaluate how helpful are the words you have accepted and believed, how helpful are the principles and routines that you apply, and if they are not helping you become the person God wants you to be, you can start by changing them.
