The world was spoken into being! God created the world and everything in it including us – and He accomplished this through His spoken word(s)! Words are eternal they are “out there” and they cannot be retrieved! They are powerful, and they carry feelings and emotions with them. Plus, they can create feelings and emotions in people whether good or bad. Our words when spoken can encourage, edify, help, heal or hurt! Or, they can discourage, tear down, or destroy the person you are talking about! Keep in mind: We are going to be judged by our words!
“Moreover, I tell you this: on the Day of Judgment people will have to give account for every careless word they have spoken; for by your own words you will be acquitted, and by your own words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37 (CJB)
WORDS SPEAK THINGS INTO BEING! And, yes, we are going to be judged by our words because our words are a part of our works. Keep in mind: Satan can rent space in a person’s head through other people’s words and though our own! Words can destroy, words kill, and words can blaspheme! I repeat words carry great power and whom you serve (whether God or Satan) is behind every word that comes out of our mouth! Our spoken words carry either blessings or curses!
“You snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what overflows from the heart.” Matthew 12:34 (CJB)
“The good person produces good things from the store of good in his heart, while the evil person produces evil things from the store of evil in his heart. For his mouth speaks what overflows from his heart.” Luke 6:45 (CJB)
“Words are so important to God that He called His Son the Word.” (R.L. Wallace, Th.D.)
