The Power Of Your Words

The Power of Your Words
It was the dawning of a brand new day , a day heralded by the sweet serenading sounds and, the angelic tweets of the lone sparrow that chirped from the banister of the porch outside of my bedroom window, accompanied by her other friends that perched from the branches of one of the trees in the nearly forested backyard. My eyelids parted in that very moment. One glance and I quickly noted by the ashy grey look on the outside that I still had a few more minutes before I rolled out of bed for my morning meditation. But who could resist such impeccable sounds, much less sleep through them?

One moment of reflection and I thought, my goodness, they are singing! Then yet another fleeting thought, aah, they are speaking words of praise and adoration to their Creator, who it seemed they had knowledge that He was listening to every bird language words they tweeted. I may never understand a word they were saying, but sure enough, God understands!

My dear EMoments reader, if you’ve followed my blog since its’ inception January 10th 2012, you may recall the third article I wrote entitled, “Are You Speaking Life Or Death?” You may also recall another article along that same trend of though about ‘words’ entitled, “You Are Responsible And Held Accountable For Every Word You Speak!”  I truly believe in the power of words and the effect they have on us, that when spoken one can witness the fruitful manifestation of God’s perfect will and plan for our lives.

Words can hurt, words can heal. Words can kill your dreams or they can give your dreams feet to run and ‘wings of confidence’ to fly. Loving words. Kind words.

Soft spoken words, words of wisdom, words that captivates both your heart and your mind, or harsh words, deceptive words, mean and hurtful words. Words that cuts through you like a scalpel blade with a razor sharp edge or words that hits your stomach like a tightly fist boxing gloved hands. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to say those words, they just slipped out.” “Slipped out! But you said them already! The damage has been done.” My, my, my, words! They can build you up, shape your world, and create the environment that is conducive to positive growth and development. Words have the power to lift your spirit, to get you up on your feet again and push you to the next dimension, thereby motivating you to do bigger and better things.

Case in point: Who could ever forget the double amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius at the 2012 Olympics in London? He stood out as the epiphany of grace under pressure to perform like every other able bodied Olympian. The world got a look inside his natural and kind disposition – a young man with a big heart and what he represents now, and that is inclusion of all. That selfless ivory son of the African soil defied all of the odds of negative criticisms and proved to the world there is no disability as big as your dream or your passion to win. It was his mother’s unconditional love and positive regard, her kind non-judgmental tone, that gave him a sense of self, a sense worth, a sense of value and persistence to go after his dream.

Within the context of the theme/title of this article I am even more compelled to share with you the power of the words spoken to Oscar Pistorius. In one of his Olympic interviews he was noted as saying, “I didn’t grow up thinking I had a disability. I grew up thinking I had different shoes….I never saw a difference between disability and ability, I just played sports. My mother in particular, always said to us” (Oscar and his brother Carl)..“A loser isn’t the person that gets involved and comes last, but the person who doesn’t get involved in the first place.” He continued, “That really rubbed off on us.”  The power of words!

A spouse’s loving, affectionate and comforting words can massage your soul and spirit in a way that causes your body to respond with such irresistible euphoric waves and gestures or on the other hand, hateful words spoken that evokes negative emotions and which can, if you do not seek help for healing and deliverance, resonate in your spirit for years. Think about it. Can you remember that time you had someone you loved and respected speak mean harsh words to you? I have. Lying next to someone who I loved, only to hear these words, “As I lie here beside you, I hate you.” Mean words! I am who I am today by the grace of Almighty God. But it took months for me to get over it and get delivered from that.

Words can be manipulated and spoken to you, they can cause you to freeze for months if not years into doubt and fear that you will somehow not succeed in life. But words that instill fear, words that crush your spirit, often indicate that we have forgotten God’s own words and their power. It also shows a lack of respect for the one true living God who formed the world and everything in it by His word. [Hebrews 11:3] He watches over His word to perform it and to see that everything that goes out from His mouth comes to pass in our lives. [Jeremiah 1:12] God exalts His word above His name that is already all powerful. [Psalm 138:2] He says the time will come when heaven and earth shall pass away but His word remains, and will never pass away. [Matthew 24:35]

Our spoken words play a significant role in our everyday life and more importantly, they indicate the state of our conscious being and our heart – for out of the abundance of the heart a man speaks. God’s word also says that it is not what goes into the body that defiles it, but what comes out of it through the words of expression from our mouth.

Always remember, “death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” [Proverbs 18:21]  The words that you speak are like dynamite. They can be like the little sparks that turns into a ball of flame and burn an entire house flat to the ground, or they can be like the cooling streams of water that flows from the fountain of love and grace that brings healing and hope of a brighter future to your life. Words once they are released into the causal realm and spirit realm have the ability to cause molecules to shift into place that can either work for you or against you. Words born out of faith, cause the angels of God to marshall on your behalf to bring about life, positive results and change.

On the other hand Satan’s agents awaits words born out of and spoken in fear, to bring about chaos, confusion and death in your life. Let us therefore take a greater level of responsibility and be more accountable to God for the words that we speak on a daily basis. Words begin with our thoughts, so think positive thoughts, for there is power in both your thoughts and your words.

If you or someone you know have ever spoken negative words over your life at present and in the future, or you have spoken negatively about someone, that curse of death and the cycle of failure must be broken through your prayers of repentance and to seek God’s pardon. The person to whom you may have spoken those words to, you must say to them you are sorry and mean it. It is imperative that you forgive yourself and now begin to speak words of life, healing, wholeness and words about who God says you are in Christ Jesus His Son.

    I remember this old saying, 'what you sow is what you reap.' Truly we must be careful with what we say..if we speak good things, blessings are sure to follow. On the other hand if we speak negative things, cursing is sure to follow us. How can bitter and sweet flow from the same fountain? Let everyone be encouraged to speak good always.

  16. You have very well said Janelle. Blessings!

  17. Such a wonderful reminder to us to pay very close attention to what comes from our mouths. Too often we are left to feel condemned, we are faced with the emotions of exclusion and judged by others just because we do not look or sound like the 'more popular kid on the block.' But like the song writer says, sometimes you've got to encourage yourself and speak a word over your own life….we cannot always wait for someone else to give us a pat on the shoulder and say the words to us that we want to hear.

    David encouraged himself in the Lord by speaking God's word into his situation whatever it may have been at the time. He even danced before the Lord, foolish as it may have seem to others. Let us be encouraged to do likewise, to support and lift each other up. We have our own individual uniqueness and gifting, but in the end it should be for one common purpose and one common goal. A great post EMoments, thanks for sharing. Blessings!

  18. Thank you BlazyFashion for sharing your thoughts. There is power in agreement also and it is therefore imperative that we stand by each other, and to encourage one another as you have done to pay attention to our words. God bless you and may we continue to speak words that will uplift and edify one another. Your contribution is indeed valuable.
