“The words you speak become the house you live in.” ~ Hafiz
Sir Winston Churchill once remarked, “Words are the only things that last forever.”
There is such beautiful truth to this quotes. The kind of truth that once heard is impossible to ignore. That the words you speak become the house you reside in.
Words have real power. Words create. Words will affect others. Like an indelible ink marker, words can leave a lasting impression.
Sometimes I think about the way we regard ourselves. Our inner voices and even external “throw away” words. How many times have you tried to discount your own feelings as “just being sensitive”, or a self-deprecating word such as a “huge fail, a hot mess, silly, crazy or psycho”? I’ve done it more times than I can count but more and more I see that my feelings at the time are valid but if I choose to present it in a way that invalidates them then why should anyone take me seriously? (I wish I could say I’ve perfected the art of using non self-deprecating language but to be honest it’s a work in progress when you’ve spent years convincing yourself that you aren’t good enough so trust me- I get it.)
Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Be very careful of the words you allow to come out of your mouth because words have power and they produce results.
The old adage is what you see is what you get, but, what I have learned in my 59 years is what speak is what you get!
We are reminded in this text that life and death is in the power of tongues and whatever we speak will come to pass. Yes, we ALL will live with the consequences of our words be it good or evil.
Speaking faith produces powerful results. Let’s listen to Mark 11:23 “Truly I tell you that if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him.
What you speak is what you get! This is why we MUST speak the Word of God out of our mouth concerning our families and in every circumstances be it good or bad.
Hafiz said “the words you speak becomes the house you live in”.
If you are a negative person and always speaking death, doubt, doom and gloom and defeat in your life, that is what you will have.
Speak life! Remember life and death is in the power of the tongue and you will eat the fruit of your spoken words. Your life is what you speak it to be.
One thing of a surety and that is what we speak is what we produce in our lives. We can bless ourselves or curse our own selves with our words.
You decide what you will speak because it is you who will live out the words you speak out of your mouth.
One of the best ways to break free from such strongholds is simply by speaking words of victory. Every day, look in the mirror and declare, “God’s Word says I am strong. God is fighting my battles for me. I’m excited about my future.”
Maybe you are lonely because you don’t have a lot of friends. Instead of complaining, start declaring, “God is bringing great people into my life. I know He loves me, so I can risk loving others.”
When you change your words, when you transform your mindset, when you examine your beliefs, you will change your focus, and you begin to change your world.
Speak blessings over your life, and as you do, you’ll go out with more confidence, you’ll be more congenial and, in turn, you will attract new friends.
Be kind to yourself. Encourage positive self-talk in yourself and others.
Remember: speak only of good for the next 24 hours. And then … see what happens. Are you all set to begin?
Wake up each morning, and utter, “Thank you, God. This is going to be a fantastic day.” Repeat positive phrases, programing your subconscious mind to act in accordance to your high aspirations. Reiterate sentences such as, “I am getting better and better,” “God is working right now in my behalf,” and “My situation is turning around successfully.” Keep your focus on God and hold a vision in your mind of good things coming to pass.
Always express thankfulness for the people in your life. Affirm, “I’m grateful for you,” “You’re a blessing,” and “I love you.” The more you express aloud your appreciation and love, the more love and appreciation you will feel.
