Continuing along the line of why the words we speak are so important, let’s begin:
1 – Confession of God’s Word affects your future.
This in itself should cause you to perk right up and listen. It’s so true that our actions follow the words we speak. We almost never do anything without first voicing it- whether to ourselves or to others. And yes, we all talk to ourselves! I like to say that I’m my best listener!
Proverbs 14:3b (KJV) 3 … but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
Isaiah 46:10 (KJV) 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Romans 4:17b (KJV) 17 … even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Matthew 12:34b (KJV) 34 … for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
As you can see, the words we speak go forth as seeds, looking to produce a harvest. That’s why it’s imperative that we only speak things that we want to manifest in our lives or in the lives of our loved ones. That means we should only speak faith-filled words over our loved ones – and includes us!
The words you speak are projected into your future because your words are containers that contain what’s in your heart. If faith is in your heart, then words [containers] of faith go forth. But if there’s negativity in your heart, those word containers go forth and the results are not pretty.
If you’ve been guilty of saying the wrong words, simply command a crop failure to them and that they come to nought!
Remember, words not spoken die unborn. So don’t let negative thoughts become words that you speak.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
As I’ve said before, listen to yourself as you go through your day as to what actually comes out of your mouth! Rebuke all negativity and speak God’s Words and watch your circumstances change.
2 – And lastly, but not the least of which are the angels of God who listen to your words and act accordingly.
Psalm 91:11 (KJV) 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalm 103:20 (KJV) 20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. [That means the words that we speak.]
Exodus 23:20-21 (KJV) 20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
Hebrews 1:14 (KJV) 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Hebrews 2:1-3 (KJV) 1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; [Salvation here means preservation, healing, soundness, wholeness, and deliverance from temporary evils.]
Here we see that the angels of God are sent to help us and that they listen to the words that we speak. That’s one of the ways they get their orders. If we speak God’s Word, then they move to cause those words to come to pass. But if we speak negative, devil-words, they stand by and do nothing. They don’t decide whether or not you really mean what you say when you utter fear-based, non-productive words. They just let those words open the door for the devil to move right in and cause them to come to pass.
An example would be when you confess that “nothing ever works out for me” or “that’s killing me” or “that breaks my heart” or “that blows me away.” These are negative words that open the door for the enemy to move in and destroy you. That’s why we’re told to guard what we put in our hearts. As they say, garbage in, garbage out; God’s Word in, God’s word out!
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV) 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
So, dear brothers and sisters, I hope I’ve given you some things to think about in these three blogs concerning the words you speak. May you listen attentively to what you say, purpose in your heart to say what God says, and reap His benefits so you can be a blessing to others!
