The Power of Words

Words do have real power!

Everything that exists came about by words, God’s Word.

In the book of Genesis, Chapter one, we read that God spoke and all things came into being: “God said...and it was so...God called...and it was good...Then God Blessed...(vs.3, 7, 10, 28).

God also gave us power in words which often convey more than just information. Our words have the power to:

  • Build up OR destroy
  • Be filled with love OR hate
  • Be a blessing OR bitterness
  • Compliments OR complaining 
  • Love OR lust
  • Victory OR defeat

Jesus reminds us that the words we speak are actually the overflow of our heart (Matthew 12:34-35). Jesus can transform our hearts so that our words can truly demonstrate the power of God’s grace and in dwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives. 

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, o Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Have a Blessed day, a gift from God!
