Today I want to convey the importance of understanding the power of what we profess and what we confess. It is important to realize that we are influenced by what we say aloud, and what we declare about ourselves and others. This includes what we say about our country, our family, our situation, and our health. The words we continually speak out loud and hear saturate our lives and paint a picture of our future. A person’s destiny is either unlocked or locked by their words.
We often see in old fairy tales and fantasy adventure movies that words can literally unlock magic doors, but in our everyday lives, there is some truth to that. In a lot of cases, the words that you use are actually locking doors, and in other cases, they are opening doors. Negative words may lead some people to miss God’s promises. There are other words you say that seem to cramp your life, shrink it, or cause harm to your life.
Friend, the words we speak can be viewed as “passwords” that open doors to life. When you call your bank to check on your account balance, you’re asked for your password to access that information. If you remember it, then you’re granted access. The right words can unlock the right opportunities in life. The right words can create wonderful situations for yourself. Let’s be aware that we can use our words to bless our lives, enlighten others, and bring joy to everyone we encounter. With the help of the Holy Spirit we will speak words that reflect the goodness of God.
