Create a Life You Love with the Power of Your Words

Words have power, more than you realize. Your thoughts define what you experience, and they quickly turn into the words that you speak. When you say something, even if it’s unconscious, you will naturally seek and attract things that confirm your words are true.

Let me give you an example. Let’s say you fail a test or you don’t get a job you wanted.  If you subconsciously say to yourself, “I’m such a failure, I’m not good at this, or I must be stupid,”  then you will subconsciously start looking for those statements to confirm what you believe is true about yourself.

Your sub conscience takes your words literally. Some people make fun of themselves to cover up a mistake or something they don’t like about themselves, but your sub conscience doesn’t have a sense of so it knows exactly what you think of yourself.  That’s why it’s so important to catch your thoughts and train your self-talk. This takes time and practice.

So whether those words are uplifting, encouraging and edifying or if they are negative, critical, and accusing, you will start looking for evidence to manifest in your life. Like a magnet, your words will attract what you are speaking to yourself. Ask yourself, what are you creating with your words?

Are you saying things like, “What’s wrong with me?” or “ Why does this always happen to me?” or “It’s so hard”, or “This drives me crazy”

You may pick up cultural phrases and sayings through your upbringing and surroundings, but if you pay close attention to the words you speak, many times you don’t mean or believe what you say.

These words are hurtful, nonproductive, or idle words. Jesus was very clear about why we shouldn’t speak idles word in the following scripture:

“But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give an account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words, you will be condemned.” Mat 12:36-37 NKJV

An example of this would be, “I’m dying to see you.” You aren’t dying, but this word is often used to exaggerate or emphasize how much you want to see them.

Have you ever said, “I’m so sick of this?” Again, you are not sick, but you are trying to emphasize your frustration in the matter.

Every time you speak an idle word, it becomes an invitation for it to manifest in your life.

If you aren’t careful what you speak, your words can get the best of you. Anytime you notice an undesired statement, try replacing those statements with what you really want. It may seem odd to stop yourself mid sentence at first, but it is rewarding and worth it.

So why are words so powerful? There are so many references in Scripture that explain why. Let’s start from the beginning. We see that in the beginning,  God spoke the world into existence by His Word. It was by His Word that you and I were created. Hebrews 1:3 states that everything we see was created by words, and it is the very Word of God that holds the universe together.

Since we are made in the very image of God, then we also have the authority to create with your words. In fact, in the garden of Eden, God originally gave Adam authority and dominion over the earth. It was Adam who named each creature. But when Adam and Eve fell into sin, he lost his authority to Satan until Jesus took it back and defeated him through the power of the resurrection.

So you and I have the authority by faith.  Use your authority wisely by speaking what you desire, and you will start to see your life change for the better!
