Words Have Power: Are You Blocking Your Blessings?

Woman Shushing

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21)

Are You Speaking Life or Death?

And by death I don’t necessarily mean a physical death. It could be a death of a relationship, a career, a goal etc.

You want it so bad that all you do is talk about it, but what are you really saying?

Are you speaking your dreams into existence or are you blocking your own blessings?

Sometimes we can be our worst enemy when it comes to our thoughts and our choice of words. When you put negative energy into the atmosphere, just know that the enemy will definitely use your own words against you.

That’s when he’ll start telling you.. “You’re never going to be anything to anyone”. “You’re never going to get far”. You might as well stop wasting your time and give up now”. The sad part about it is…many of us will give in to that fear. Why? Because we are the ones who planted the seed.

Take myself for example. I remember a time my ex-husband and I were having a simple conversation. I don’t remember what exactly about, but I do remember saying “IF our marriage does not work out, I don’t think I’ll ever get married again.” Can you imagine the argument that followed that statement? My husband went ballistic. Here we are newlyweds straight from the alter and in my mind, I had us already headed for divorce court. Needless to say, the marriage didn’t last very long.

Being positive is a choice you make every day from the moment you wake up.  Some people are so negative, they don’t even recognize a blessing when it’s presented to them. 

You either look at your circumstance as an opportunity for growth or way to damnation.  You either accept defeat as your destiny or see it as a learning curve and make it your foundation to start over.

You either see your roadblock as a stumbling block or a stepping stone.  It all depends on how you view it.

The choices you make from the time you start the day shape your day and your life ultimately.

Sometimes despite the way your situation looks , you have to learn to see it the way you want it to be.

Your business is not picking up the way you expected it to?…You can choose to say “Maybe I should quit while I’m ahead” or “I know my season is just around the corner. Failure is not an option.” …

If you’re dealing with another bad breakup? You can choose to say “I’ll never find the right person” or “I know God is sending me ‘Mr. Right’ .”

Instead of telling yourself “I don’t know how I’m going to make it.”, tell yourself “I don’t know how He’s going to do it, but I know God will provide.”

Being realistic is one thing, but being pessimistic is another.

Words are seeds. Before you speak, think about what you are planting.
