Matthew 12:34b (KJV) 34 … for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Matthew 12:37 (KJV) 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Yes, our words do matter. What we say is what we get – good or bad – because that’s what is in our hearts. As you can see from the above scripture, what’s in our hearts will eventually get in our mouths and we’ll speak it out- good or bad!
But, there’s hope. When we speak God’s Word in faith, we can be sure that we’re speaking the right thing. God’s ways are indubitably more superior to the ways of man. We should be so thankful that we can rely on His Word because our God is reliable, dependable, unchangeable, and stands behind every Word He has ever spoken!
As born-again Christians, we know that we’re dealing with two worlds: the physical world and the spiritual world. We live and function in the physical realm which is governed by our five physical senses. God lives and functions in the spiritual realm. And remember, God is a Spirit and we contact Him spirit to Spirit. So how do we do this? By using our faith the Word of God.
Remember, our real self is a spirit, we have a soul – our mind, will, and emotions, and we live in a body – our earth suit. We don’t contact God with our body or soul but with our re-born spirit – spirit to Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV) 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So, why are our words so important and why can’t we say any ol’ thing we want? Because, words are spiritual and they affect more than we think. In fact, words go beyond this physical world and affect the things of the spirit world. Let me give you an example:
Where is healing when you need it? It’s in the spirit realm and the way we access the spirit realm is with our words and faith. Remember, our words either justify us or condemn us. That’s why it behooves us to keep a guard on our mouths and only say what we really want to come to pass.
How many times have you heard someone say negative things about themselves or others and then wonder why bad things happen? Granted, we don’t always reap immediately but if we confess the wrong thing over and over, it will eventually manifest.
It’s the same with good things. When we confess God’s Word over situations, we can expect to see results. Then, depending on how developed we are in our confessions, that determines how fast we see manifestation.
Words are so important and we must take this seriously if we want to see God’s goodness in our lives. Speak God’s Word and get the results you desire!

Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) 12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
