The words you speak in life are coming from your own heart and painting a picture of your life. I’ll illustrate this with a great story! While walking down the road, a man sees two artists painting a scene of the Los Angeles landscape. He sees a woman painting a beautiful picture, set on a hill, the Hollywood sign, gorgeous art deco buildings, new cars, people dressed up, and a sunny day in Southern California. As the next guy paints the same landscape, you see chain-link fences, people doing drugs, a lot of gray, spray paint, trash, and litter. The interesting thing is that both painters are seeing the same thing, but they’re expressing and experiencing it differently.
Life is very much like this — what you see on a canvas is the artist’s heart. The words that you speak in life come from your own heart, and they paint a picture of your life. Every time you speak, it’s like paint coming out of your mouth and coloring a picture of your present and your future. In creation, we see that God created everything with His words. Also, we see that the whole creation, in its perfection and beauty, was uncreated, was undone, also with words. The serpent asks Eve one single question – “Did God really say…” And that question alone has caused more harm today and continues to reverberate.
Friend, in contrast to Adam and Eve, we can trust the Word of God and stake our lives on it. As a result, you become an endorser of words that create life. This is exactly what the word of God is, words that save, words that rescue, words that turn lives around!
