I was listening to the radio on the way home.
First, can I say I love Christian radio. There are so many options now too. I can remember when you could only get 1 ... & it was static sounding... & forget trying to get it in if you were in the Downtown area where buildings were everywhere.
Now, its different... love having the options to flip through a few & hear nothing but God blessing music.
They were talking on there about the power of the mouth & of the tongue... words... how much they can heal, do damage, build up, break down...
Someone called in & said something I sort of not given much thought too.
She said, we are made in the image of God, & look at the power of God's words. He created the world with them. "And God said, "Let there be light"... "And God said, "Let there be expanse between water..."... over & over again, we see "And God said..."
The power of words...
We see all over the life of Jesus the power of words again.
Telling someone to stand up & walk to a person who had no use of their legs.
To tell someone to walk out from a grave who has been dead for a few days.
Yeah, those are powerful words...
& it is true. We were created in God's image.
I forget the power of my words.
The effect they have on others, but mostly,, the effect they have on me.
Life has been tough lately. & I seem to wake up & say, "What's today going to throw at me?"... & I get to work & say, "How miserable is today going to be?"... & I get home & work out & think, "Why am I bothering? This weight won't go away"...
Words... that are negative... spoken into my life...
I woke up this morning remembering what I heard on the radio yesterday.
They inspired me to go home & open my Bible & look up verses on words & the power of the tongue.
God had a lot to say about that...
& I'm going to start speaking life into my own days.
Waiting for God to show up in every situation of my day.
We can be tough on ourselves... on others...
I challenge everyone today to speak positive things into your day... Speak life into yourself... & others
