175th -- Message On The Power Of Words


I hope you are doing well and in the best of health. I have been praying
about what message to send to you and I felt the Lord impressing upon my
heart to write a message concerning the words that we speak out of our
mouth. Many times we say things without first thinking about them and pay
a price for doing so. We need to remember that the words that we say out
of our mouths do take on a life of themselves and can either bless or curse
us. I hope you'll be challenged by this message that will show you from
God's Word how to be careful of the words that you speak, and show you to
only speak positive and overcoming words of Victory.

The Bible declares in Proverbs 6:2, "Thou art snared with the words of thy
mouth..." The word snared is defined in the dictionary as, "Something that
serves to entangle the unwary." Many times we get caught unaware and speak
things in haste that we soon regret. It is very important that we remember
and always keep in mind that our words have great power to either create or
destroy. We are created in the image of God and just as He has created all
things by speaking them into existence, so it is with us because we are an
extension of Him. (James 3:10) (John 1:1-4) (Genesis 1:26)

When we feel down and discouraged and articulate our feelings with our 
words, then we are giving life to that negative situation to continue on 
in making us feel like defeated persons. The Bible says let the weak Say
they are strong. We are not to give in to negative situations by speaking
words of defeat, but rather we are to prophesy the situation to be the best
it can be even in the midst of the storm. Darkness must dispense once Light
has entered into a room and it is the same thing concerning a negative 
situation, which is overcome by positive and overcoming words of authority.
(Ezekiel 37:4-10) (Joel 3:10) (1 John 2:14-17) (Revelation 12:11)

The Bible tells us that our tongue even though is a small member of our 
whole body, has the power to direct where our life will take us, as the 
Bible illustrates in James 3:4-5, "A tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn 
wherever the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds are strong. So 
also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do..."
When we lose control of our tongue and don't choose our words wisely, then
our life is going to be affected and taken off course, just as a ship is
steered off course by the controlling of the helm wheel. (Proverbs 18:21)

God tells us that He lays before us life and death, blessing and cursing,
and He tells us to choose life. It is all up to us if we become the people
God wants us to be because He has given us a free will to either obey His
word and live an abundant and overcoming life, or do things our way and
simply exist in a life of mediocrity. (Deuteronomy 30:19) (Proverbs 3:5-12)

The Lord has given many warnings throughout the Bible that tells us our 
words play a very important part of our life. Jesus declares in Matthew 
12:37, "By your words you will be justified and by your words you will be
condemned." God has not hidden His commandments from us, but has made them
clearly known throughout His Word because God's love is that great and He 
does not want us to fall into the traps of the enemy. We are to be alert
and recognize the tricks of the devil and overcome them with the
authoritative words of our mouth. (Psalm 119:11-12) (Proverbs 6:20-23)

Just because we have made mistakes in the past does not mean that it is 
too late to start afresh. Our God freely offers second chances to those 
who have made mistakes. We should always be confident and know that Christ
is able to cleanse our past and create within us a new heart and life that
is completely the opposite of the life that we once lived in darkness. I 
encourage you to call upon Him today if you are having trouble controlling
your words and ask the Lord to create within you a new heart where 
negativity will cease to exist. God is able to change you in ways you 
never thought possible, so never get discouraged in calling on the name of
the Lord. (Isaiah 1:18) (2 Corinthians 5:17) (Isaiah 55:6-7)

The next time you are tempted to speak negative words against someone else
or even against a situation in your life, I challenge you to remember what
the Bible says concerning the tongue and know that your words have great 
power to bless or curse, to renew a friendship or destroy a friendship. 
Your words can heal your situation or make it much worse. The choice is 
up to us on how we handle every situation in our lives. Let us handle them
God's way and control the negative words that we are tempted to say when
things are not going as planned. Only then will we be the people God wishes
for His children to be and receive the blessings of obeying His Word. 
(Joshua 1:8) (Proverbs 15:1) (Isaiah 1:19-20)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Proverbs 15:1-4 “A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs 
up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of
fools pours forth foolishness. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, 
Keeping watch on the evil and the good. A wholesome tongue is a tree of 
life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.”

Matthew 12:35-37 Jesus declares,
“A good man out of the good treasure of 
his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil 
treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle 
word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 
For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be 

James 3:10-12 “Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My 
brethren, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send forth fresh
water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear
olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water 
and fresh.”

Proverbs 18:4-7 “The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The wellspring
of wisdom is a flowing brook. It is not good to show partiality to the
wicked, Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. A fool’s lips enter 
into contention, And his mouth calls for blows. A fool’s mouth is his
destruction, And his lips are the snare of his soul.”

All scriptures can be found in the New King James Version.
