The Power of our Words

Guest blog post by Kathy Neighbors

The words we speak have power, do you know this and believe it to be true? I suppose this is what has been on my heart most recently. The impact of the words I say and hear are more lasting than I ever thought them to be.

In terms of motivation, negative words will get you no where fast. If you dwell on negative, typically negative is what you get.

In terms of relationships, harsh, critical, unloving words will never make a relationship better, but can certainly damage and destroy.

In terms of parenting, we often hold the key to our growing children's self esteem and confidence in the way we speak to them AND about them. We should be firm in our discipline, while affirming their worth in Jesus.

I attended a beautiful prayer gathering last week and was in awe of God's continual pursuit of my righteousness. I will never be without sin and I will continue to fall short of His Glory, but I love the way He continues to draw me deeper. As He draws me deeper, He continues to refine me.

At the gathering last week I heard that small still whisper, "Speak less, listen more."

I have a bad habit of interrupting people when they speak, I often grumble and complain and I can use my words like daggers when provoked.

In the stillness of my heart, He whispers, "No more. You are mine and your words, all of them, should point others to me and demonstrate who I am......."

Oh Lord, once again I see my mistakes and my loose tongue and my less than honorable words and I pray for deliverance from my old ways. Create in me a clean and pure heart with words that reflect Your Glory. Let this day be the start of a revival in the hearts of many! Thank You for the refining fire and for Your relentless love and grace! Amen
