What Does It Mean To Have Power In Your Words?


The Power Of Your Words To Create Good Or Bad

Words have power immeasurably. They have the ability to change situations and destinies. Words can create or destroy. Words can give life or they can kill.

King Solomon perfectly illustrates it with the phrases below:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit. 

Proverbs 18:21

He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
Why else did G-d give us the senses which many people keep abusing continually? Why do folks think God also provided us the Bible?
Words have power. 

Proverbs 13:3

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,
But perverseness in it breaks the spirit. 

Proverbs 15:4

I understand communication is multifaceted entity:

  • Images have power.
  • Colors have power.
  • Symbols have power.
  • Sounds have power.
  • Touches have power.
  • Vibrations have power.
  • Consonance and patterns have power.

Considering the power of communication in it's varied forms, it's therefore very important to watch what we think, say, watch and see.

If we are going to produce life giving words, then we have to sow the right seeds. And sowing the right seeds starts with having good seeds.

We have to be careful about the things we read for example magazines, books, articles, blogs etc.

We have to be intentional about what we watch and listen to because all these ultimately affect what we will say.

I pray we are able to speak life, love, faith, hope into the lives of others. I pray we become builders and restorers.
