The Power Of Our Words

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Prov. 1821 NKJV)


Have you ever entered a room after harsh words were spoken and sensed a

negative spirit the words left in the atmosphere? Our words are so powerful

and have the ability to create death or life. Harsh, mean words can not only

change the atmosphere in a room but will affect the directions of your

thoughts and consequently, your emotions. If we master how we choose to

release words from our mouths, we can be successful in maintaining a

positive atmosphere in our homes, relationships and in the workplace. This

is a secret to maintaining peace in our minds. Our words can create peace

or turmoil for us. It’s been said “your life will never rise above the level

of your words”. Words are a reflection of our thoughts and are the root of

the direction of our emotions. Renewing your mind with the Word of God is

the way we get control of our thoughts and is a catalyst to controlling the words

we allow to come out of our mouths. We are instructed in Ephesians 4:23,

“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind”. This should be done daily, to

maintain daily victory in the area of our minds and consequently our choice

of words. I encourage you to take time daily to renew your thoughts in the Word.

It’s through this discipline that we are transformed and empowered to master

our thoughts and consequently the words we chose to release.


Prayer: Father God, thank you for the secret to controlling my words. Please

help, me to practice the discipline of renewing my mind in Your

Word and allowing You to empower me to get control of my thoughts so

that I can chose words that bring life. In Jesus Name Amen
