Words are so powerful than what you think. The tongue is a powerful tool for utterances. That’s is why the security God gave the tongue is to help us control our tongues. You have your teeth and lips as guards for your tongue.
Words are like rain that falls in order to make the earth fruitful. Plants grow and living things enjoy.
Do you know that what you say really matters?
Either to yourself or others, you will reap what you sow because there is power in the tongue. You have to be careful with your words. Apart from what you say, you also receive it from others.
How Did Words Get to Us?
Words come to us through communications i.e through our interactions with others, messages that we receive from our environment, what we read, what we watch and hear.
What you are today is as a result of all the words that have been sown into your life. These words are sown by those who took care of you (your parents or guardian) while you were growing up, your environment, the schools you attended, and all the information you received through your senses.
If you sow good seeds, i.e the right words, into your life, they will produce the right results. You can’t sow mangos and expect to reap oranges. Every seed reproduces after its kind. It’s very important to be cautious of your words when something happens to you.
There are some who cast spells upon their baby during labour because of the pains. While there are some wives who rain curses upon their husbands when a little quarrel show up.
They never know that a day is coming when that words will begin to manifest. Then they will start praying. Some will think it’s the work of their enemies, not knowing that it is as a result of what they have confessed in the past that they are possessing presently. I pray that every evil confessions upon your life is erased totally today in Jesus name.
The question is, what words are you sowing into your life?
As a parent, what words are you sowing into your children’s lives?
As a husband or a wife, what words are you sowing into your spouse’s life?
What words are you sowing into the lives of people around you?
If unpleasant words are sown into your life, you have to make the right adjustment not by regretting or crying, but by sowing the right words into your life. You have to confess positive things into your life if eventually a negative words get to you. Negative words easily come to reality faster than positive words.
Words means a lot. Some may count it, while some may not. Some will even think about it while relaxing at night. Some will nurture it, especially those who hear bad things concerning them e.g. prophecies of evil incident that will happen, instead of praying about it.
This reminds me of a lady, who was told by someone she referred to as a prophet that she would die. She believed the prophecy and keep thinking about her death. She didn’t pray nor fast. She later fell sick and at the end, she died.
When I heard that story, I reasoned with the person who told me that she was responsible for her death. Why? She heard it and believed. Even though it would happen, she could still find a solution for such not to happen by fasting and prayers.
King Hezekiah, who was told that he would die, turned and faced the wall to remind God of all the good things he had done. He prayed for God’s mercy and God sent that same prophet, who declared the death at first, to tell the king that He would add more years to his years.
God added fifteen years to king Hezekiah’s years on earth. Why? Because of his words through prayers.
God can change things for good. He can transform your life even if you have sown negative words into your life in the time of adversity. That is why you must get closer to Him.
You have to keep sowing the right words of joy, peace and love, and you will reap the same.
Your life goes in the direction of your words. Guard your heart and ears from wrong words.
Confess pleasant and positive words into your life.
The words you listen to should inspire and bless you. Endorse only words that will build your confidence on who you are so that you can live effectively and be your best, and all that God has destined you to be.
