I am sure at some point in our lives we have all either used or heard the phrase “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Do you really believe that?????
God’s word has alot to say about words and their effect on you. We must realize what power our words can posess. Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Proverbs 16:24 states “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” From this one verse we see that it is the very words that we speak that are healing to the bones. Proverbs 12:18 “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Again we see that our tongue can posess the power of healing. (Also check out Proverbs 12:14, 13:3, 14:3, 15:4)
I want to ask, WHAT ARE YOU SPEAKING?
The words you speak are vital to your health and well-being. I believe that we can affect our atmosphere (including our physical bodies) by the words we speak. Many people today are in need of healing, yet they talk sickness and suffering until they establish that image in them. Their thoughts and words produce a vivid blueprint, and they live within the bounds and limitations of that blueprint. God’s Word draws a clear blueprint for healing in your body, and as you speak His Word you will begin to live in that environment.
It has been medically documented that there are thirty-nine major diseases that exist. From those thirty-nine stem various other sicknesses and infirmities, minor colds, aches and pains, but there are thirty-nine which are the umbrella for all. Isaiah 53:4,5 “He has borne our sicknesses and carried our diseases. By his stripes we are Healed.” Do you remember how many stripes Christ took on His back? Thirty-Nine! Praise God! Psalm 103:2,3 “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.” Notice that it says ALL of your diseases.
Mark 11:23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea, ‘and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.” This mountain was a figure for an obstacle, a hindrance, or humanly insurmountable problem. None of which are impossible for God. Notice the verse said that you are to speak to the mountain. God has given us the authority, through Christ, to use His Word to open our mouth and speak what we desire to see. The mistake most Christians make is that they speak what they see, not what they desire to see. They call things the way they are instead of calling those things that are not as though they were.
STOP TELLING GOD HOW BIG YOUR MOUNTAIN IS AND BEGIN TELLING YOUR MOUNTAIN HOW BIG YOUR GOD IS!
MAKE SURE YOUR WORDS ARE SOFT AND SWEET; BECAUSE ONE DAY YOU MAY HAVE TO EAT THEM!
DO MORE THAN JUST TALK: SAY SOMETHING!
