When God created the world, the Bible says that he spoke it into existence. Why do you think God used words to create the universe? With all of his power, why did God use language to create?
God said that man was “made in his own image.” We are the only creatures on this planet that can create with communication.
Your words literally make things happen. Your words have the power to create or destroy. Words can build up or tear down.
Building up & Tearing Down
Be intentional about speaking positive power into the lives of others. Change your wife’s life by just telling her you believe in her.
Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.”
Speak without Complaining and Arguing
Complaining Depletes Energy.
- Complainers suck the life out of important movements.
- Use the energy it takes to complain, to make a change.
- Stop complaining by being thankful for what you have.
Arguing is a control issue.
- God is in control.
- So, there is not much sense in arguing.
- Ask more questions, and increase your communication.
- Questions led to resolutions.
Philippians 2:14 “Do everything without complaining or arguing.”
Speak as Though It Is
Make a proclamation for good things in your life. Literally speak into into existence as though it is a reality.
Job 22:28 “When you declare a thing it is established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”
Ask God to make what is good come true. This is not about manipulation or control, this is about trusting God.
2nd Corinthians 12:10 “Let the weak say, I AM STRONG.”
Prayer is believing in a God that is all powerful.
2nd Corinthians 4:11 “I believe, therefor, I have spoken.”
