Words that are spoken have the ability to create or destroy. Words do matter. Words are filled with tremendous power. A word spoken too quickly can cause great pain. A word not spoken soon enough can cause a missed opportunity. A simple word can give someone hope. A profound word can change a person’s life forever. A marriage vow is sealed with a word. A business deal is created with a word. A change in the best and worst of circumstances is produced by a word.
Proverbs 18:20-21 (NKJV)
A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Satisfaction is experienced by releasing words that create good fruit or reward. Everything that is seen was created by words. God spoke and so it was. We were created in the image of God. In His image, we also possess that same creative power.
Difficult circumstances should not dictate the words that are spoken. The words that are spoken should dictate difficult circumstances. Emotions cannot be the driving force of words that have the ability to produce death and life. Begin today by discerning the magnitude of your words! What are you saying?
