Keep a tight rein on your words because what you say will eventually find it’s way into your heart and when it gets in your heart, it starts shaping how you think and then how you behave; habits you develop, how you act and eventually who you become!!!
Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. Prov 13:3
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he…Prov 23:7
Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Mark 11:23
If you don’t believe what you are saying, then you shouldn’t say it, because if you keep saying something long enough those words will eventually register on your spirit. And once they are registered upon your spirit, they will control your life.
It’s important to watch what we say because we most definitely have and become what we say! So watch your life, because where you are today is a reflection of what you’ve been saying. If you’re not satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’ve got so far, maybe it’s time to change what comes out of your mouth every single time?
I’ve also found that in order to be able to change what we say, we need to change what we hear! What do you pay attention to? What do you spend most of your time focussing on? Who do you hang around? What do you think of most times? All these are important to evaluate and adjust as necessary if we’re going to change what we say and hence see positive changes in our lives.
It is not the giants in life that defeat you. It is not the storms of life that defeat you. If you are defeated, it is because you have defeated yourself. You have defeated yourself by wrong thinking, wrong believing and wrong speaking. You can most definitely have what you say!!!
We fail most times because we get ready to fail. We prepare for failure. We think and believe it, and then we do it. As believers, however, we have no business talking failure or doubt. We should talk faith.
It’s time to create a beautiful world, with what we say everyday!!!
I pray that as the Holy Spirit reveals to you areas in which you need to adjust your language, you will use God’s grace that has been made available to you to make the changes necessary and indeed mind your language. x
