The Power of Words

9-30-2012

I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live -Deuteronmy 30:19

I'm finding that the more I talk to people; particularly women, they are not speaking words of life, peace and blessing. I said to a sister "I love the color of your hair". She said, "really, I need a retouch and my ends trimmed. I wish it was long like yours." I was really sincere and did like the color of her hair. Her hair really did look nice. I wonder why it is so hard for us as women to speak life; positive words. I'm convinced that we could be healed and experience the best life has to offer if we just changed our confessions.  What do you think?  Do you find that you are more prone to speak negative than positive?

Gloria Copland said "If you want to receive something form God, follow His example and speak it. That's the way faith works. The older I get, the more I want to bathe in positive things. I don't want to be a part of putting down my sisters or bashing my brothers. I don't want to be a part of clicks or even craft wars. We need to change the words that come from our mouths; and the thoughts of our heart. This can be a difficult task and I have not arrived. So it's a work forever in progress.

So I say to you, make the decision to speak life an choose your words carefully. Be encouraged and say about yourself what God says about you. Philippians1:6 reads "Being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
