I met someone who told me they were so unlucky! “I believe my life is cursed.” They said. “Everything goes wrong for me.”
I was never taught in all my days growing up about the power of words, were you?
In my early 20’s I began to wonder about the power of words and especially what I spoke. Could it really matter that much? How could I possibly never ever say anything wrong? It seemed too huge a task for me to manage as my mouth always caused me trouble. I never realized that I should not say everything that came into my mind. I believed I should tell the truth always, but had no wisdom, that sometimes even if a thing is true you just pray about it and don’t say anything if it is not helpful to say.
Don’t make comments: I never knew you should not make comments about people, their pets, their lives. Making comments at the end of the day I realized was analyzing, judging from my life experiences, my perspectives and since I was not the font of all knowledge I should refrain from saying things like. Oh what a fat dog you’ve got. Or that’s the fattest dog I’ve seen! LOL. Actually I did not say it some one said it to me, but it makes the point. By the way my dog was 16 very sick unto death and her stomach was distended. So don’t make comments – you may not have all the facts, after all it just your opinion.
Although I do not have a definitive answer here are some tried and tested wisdoms from life and from the Bible, because your words do matter.
Words have the power to create. God spoke the world into being. No, he did not say in some deep gravelly voice in his best English accent ‘let there be light”. If he spoke in a known language then something somewhere would not understand, least of all us. No his language, his voice was the sound of LOVE. To bring something out of nothing the sound he uttered would have come from a deep creative release of sound from what was inside of him. Love and light and power are what is inside of God the creator so that is what would come out.
What kind of sound would it have been? Could it be a sound that came out like bang, loud enough to shock something into being, or cause nothing bits and pieces to collide together with terrifying forces? Possibly, or could it have been such a loving sound that it coaxed life together from all particles and atoms. So liberating that dust, rocks, metals, breath, winds, currents, gas, star dust, molecules came out to look at what was happening. They came together to form our planets and solar systems. The stars themselves came together in obedience to the sound of the creator of all things. Vibrating, banging, screeching, exploding as they collided or whooshing, singing, making beautiful sounds to honor their creator. Everything came together after the sound and darkness followed by light. Light and sound are two opposing edges of the same thing. All brought about by the power of God’s voice/sound/vibrations. It is so beautiful and efflulgent, extravagant, that it humbles us because life came out of the heart of the mighty creator who made it all from what lives in him. Love, Light, intelligence, wisdom, Strength, honor, dignity, purity, holiness, goodness, life, abundant life that never stops. His voice pulls life out of death, and something out of nothing. His voice is calling to us in our hearts, can you hear it?
There is no stopping him, he is eternal, everlasting, the life force that goes on multiplying, growing. Everything that touches him grows expands and multiplies with great freedom to exist to the very zenith of it’s potential and then some because it has touched the source of life itself.
Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Having lived in Africa and encountered witch doctors who put spells and curses on people, I have seen first hand people die because of a curse placed upon their lives. My father who was doctor was powerless to save a person when they believed the words the witch doctor had cursed them with.
Words have the power to put a curse on your life even if they are spoken by you. When you speak out negative, judgemental, critical, lying, deceiving words over yourself you give the demons the right to enact on them. You may say, I’m no good, I’m useless, or I know i’ll Fired from my job, or I’m sure I’m sick, I’m stupid and so on. These are words that go into the spiritual realm and create into being the reality of the words you are confessing. They also give demons the right to take them up and put them into a plan over your life. Whether you know it or not.
We are made in God’s image who spoke things into being. Similarly that is part of his implantation, his image into us.
When the Israelites were in the wilderness for 40 years and towards the end of the time Moses sent 10 of them to spy out the promised land; 8 came back and gave a fearful unbelieving word saying there were giants in the land and therefore it was not ok. But 2 of them, Joshua and Caleb came back and gave a good report: Yes, there are giants in the Land but with our God’s promise and might we shall be able to take the land flowing with milk and honey. Get the picture? It’s the same as is the glass half full ? Or half empty? But with God all things are possible for those that love the Lord because they are tapped into his greatness to provide and make a way, even when there seems to be no way. You have the source available to you. So speak with life, speak with faith, speak the truth with love, speak the Word and start to create your life and your families life well – with blessing and favor. You will start to see a change.
Words have the power to bless your life and take it forward, even when spoken by you. Speak blessing over your life and your families lives. Declare what the Lord has said, not what the enemy has whispered into your ears. Declare the promises of God, for they are your faithful armor. (Ps 91).
Words have the power to cause strife and vain imaginations spreading all sorts of dissenting. What is a vain imagination? It is something that is not true. Like “i’m Wicked, no good, I’m a loser, Or i’m Not good enough. Or they are talking about me, they don’t like me and so on. Before you speak make sure it is true. Good, helpful for those hearing. You have self control even if it may not seem like it. Excercise it, because the truth is you can control yourself.
Words have the power to stop anger, rage, gossip, lies, slander, bitterness etc., or to create it. I used to suffer from a temper brought on by fear a lot of the time, loss of control of my own life. So I acted out. I found once I started speaking in anger it was a fast slip into rage and then I had lost it completely. However, Proverbs says that a quiet answer turns away wrath. I always though that was if someone was yelling at you. Then The Holy Spirit told me it would work for my anger too. If I did not start to verbalize the anger but instead spoke in the opposite spirit, I spoke gently and kindly with nice tone even if I did not mean it. A strange and wonderful thing happened, my anger dissipated! I maintained self control. Hallelujah!
Words can make a person not want to come home but rather to leave it, to run away.
Words can crush and maim with more long-lasting effect in your heart than disease that lasts for a season. It can take years to get over bad words spoken to you especially by family, and those whom you esteem or are in leadership over you.
Words can cause you to lose jobs, destinies, friends, family and so on.
So how do I change this? First of all forgive anybody and everybody that you hold offense against. Yes, I know it’s hard but you can do it with God’s help. Ask him to help you and then just do it in obedience, Your feelings will follow afterwards.
Next in Jesus name say aloud “I break, crumble every negative, judgement, critical words I’ve ever spoken. By the blood of Jesus I set fire to them and declare them null and void in Jesus name.” “I break every curse and incantation spoken over my life, whether by me or someone else in Jesus name.”
Next say aloud “ I am blessed to be a blessing.” I am forgiven and loved by my Father God through the blood of Jesus Christ and his saving grace.”
Say aloud “In Jesus name my life shall not be for waste and my destiny shall no longer by stolen. I call into being my chosen destiny in the name of Jesus Christ. By the power of his blood I shall accomplish everything he put me on earth to do in Jesus name.” Amen.
Now start to proclaim as many good things as you want over your life and your families life. For real supernatural Power – speak the blessings of the Bible into being over your life.
