Hey guys! Sorry it's been a little while since I last posted. I'm back and ready to get this blog back on the road! I'm starting this new book and I thought it would be fun and good for all of us (even me) to do. The book is called, Change Your Words Change Your Life by Joyce Meyer.
Most of us don't realize how powerful words are and how huge an impact they have on our lives. Think about it. Even two simple syllables...Da-da...are powerful enough to make a grown man cry when uttered for the first time by his baby.
I believe that words contain tremendous power: it can be either positive , constructive power or negative, destructive power.
In Genesis, we read that God used words to create the world we live in. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21 the power of life and death are in the tongue. That is an amazing statement and one that we should seriously consider. Each time we speak words, we are speaking either life or death to those who hear us and to ourselves. So we need to be cautious about the words we utter.
Our mouth gives expression to what we want, think, and feel; therefore, it reveals a great deal about the one who is speaking. We can learn a lot about themselves just by listening to the things that we say. Matthew 12:34-35 says that "out of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man from his inner good treasure flings forth good things, and the evil man out of his inner evil storehouse flings forth evil things." Our words are the result of our inner thoughts and attitudes. One might say that our words are a movie screen that we have.
I believe our words can increase and decrease our level of joy. They can affect the answers to our prayers, and have a positive or negative effect on our future. We should be pay a lot of attention to what the Word of God has to teach us about the condition of her life, it would be wise to take an inventory of the words she has spoken.
God has a good plan for each one of us, but it won't automatically happen without our cooperation. We are partners with God in his life, and He wants us to be in agreement with what He has spoken about us in His Word. As we go though this book, I believe we all will gain new insight into the fact that as all of us change our words, we can change our life's as well.
