Did you know that your words get to your future before you do? Why is that? Because when we speak words, they go forth to accomplish what they’re intended to. This can be for good or for evil, depending on the words spoken. They become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Let me explain.
Take children for example. If good, uplifting words are spoken over them throughout their lives, they will most likely succeed at what they’ve been “conditioned” to do. But if negative, debasing words are spoken over them throughout their lives, guess how they’ll turn out! Yet, they still have a free will but negative words only make it harder on them.
It can work the same way in the workplace. If your boss speaks uplifting, encouraging words over you, it really does make a difference in your work output. Sadly, the reverse is also true.
So what do we do? Do we vent or do we keep our mouths shut until we can trust what will come out? I think you know that answer.
Matthew 12:34b (KJV) 34 … for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Psalm 141:3 (MSG) 3 Post a guard at my mouth, GOD, set a watch at the door of my lips.
Words are containers – carrying good or carrying evil and they really do affect our future and destiny. And just as God’s Words did exactly what He sent them to do, so will our words, whether for good or for evil. We need to get our words lined up with what God has said and watch the supernatural take place.
And just for clarification, when you speak negative words, it opens the door for the devil to come right in and cause havoc in your life.
Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Every Word God has said, has or will come to pass because His Words are filled with His faith. When God saw the darkness, He didn’t say, “Oh my how dark it is!” No, He called for the thing He wanted, namely light and light became! That’s what He intends for us to do with our words because we’re made in His image and we are to be followers of our Heavenly Father as dear children. We’re to do the same things that He does and that involves speaking to things to cause change.
It’s getting good; stay tuned!–Pamela
