The Power of Your Words
What you say can mean life or death. Those who speak with care will be rewarded. PROVERBS 18:21 NCV
Your words hold power, and they can have a lasting impact on the lives of those around you. With just a few words, you can either uplift someone else’s spirit or bring them down.
It is important to be mindful of what we say, especially in our relationships. The way we communicate with others can either build them up or tear them down. We must strive to use our words to encourage, to heal, and to bring life to those around us. And if we do ﬁnd ourselves using our words to hurt or harm others, we must take responsibility for our actions and seek forgiveness.
As we reﬂect on our words and their impact on our relationships, we must also take time to thank God for His words of love and encouragement spoken over us. We must ask for His help in controlling our emotions and speaking with wisdom and kindness. When we speak with love and kindness, we create an atmosphere of peace and harmony in our relationships.
We must always remember that our words hold power! We should choose them wisely and use them to bring life to those around us. Let us thank God for His words of love and encouragement spoken over us and ask for His help in using our words to uplift and encourage those around us. May we strive to create an atmosphere of peace and harmony in all our relationships, trusting in God’s Word and His blessings.
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory. The majesty and the splendor of everything in heaven and on earth is Yours. Yours, Lord, are all the kingdoms of the world. You are exalted as head over all, and I will praise You all the days of my life.
