It Is Written, Proverbs 18:21, death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Speaking life is a part of using faith filled words. People in general don't seem to realize what they are saying. They don't realize the power in words.
Most of what people say in certain circumstances is really said in a reflex kind of way. You say what you have been conditioned to say. Other people just plain don't stop to think about their words. Sometimes the wrong words just come out in a conversation, like when two people compare illnesses. It usually turns into who can come up with the worst story. They are in effect accepting and feeding their illnesses.
Words don't just affect illness. They affect everything in your life. If you are supposed to go to the gym to work out, you can tell yourself that you are too tired to go, and you will be. On the other hand you can say how good you feel, and the workout will make you feel even better. It will.
The big thing you have to keep in mind, is to put a positive spin on everything. Think before you speak. Rehearse what you will say when a subject comes up. It may be difficult, but don't give up, work at it, because it is important to your quality of life. It will get to be like a positive reflex. The Lord felt it was important enough to put the verses in the Bible. We all need to look at it in that light. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, by your death and resurrection you brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
