What are you speaking?

Words kill, words give life;

they’re either poison or fruit – you choose. Proverbs 18:21 (MSG)

The above scripture tells us the power of our words. Yes words are powerful. How easy is it to say a word without thinking of the lasting impact?  Marriages, relationships and lives have been broken as a result of words. Words can kill. Words can heal. A lot of heartaches can be avoided if we learn to speak the right words.

Devil knows exactly how powerful our words are. Here is what he does. He sows a bad thought into our mind, or present us with a bad report. He tries all he can to make us speak negatively concerning those situations in order for us to give life to them in bad way. He knows once life has been given to them through our words, he can then operate.

Watch it! Watch what you are saying concerning that child, that job, your life, that contract, that marriage, that relationship. Speak life. Speak increase. Things will get better.

  1. Hi Efua, very good points. This is so true, words are very powerful more than many truly realize and more than many have been taught to understand on an unseen spiritual level as well the more obvious ways.

  2. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. We must guard our heart for out of it flows the issues of life..thank you for this reminder! It can be so easy to speak negativity; whatsoever we speak so shall it be..Life and death is in the power of the tongue.

  4. Hallelujah, God bless you Efua. Indeed we shall hold fast the profession of our confession for evil thoughts die unborn when we decide not to speak them.

    We shall give no life to them, love your post.❤️
