Daily Prompt: You’ve Got the Power http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/06/12/daily-prompt-law/

Oh, now this is an interesting topic. Yes, we do have the Power. Many people do not understand, “The Power of the Spoken Word!” That is why so many people become victims to the things that are spoken over them such as:

You will never amount to anything!
You are worthless!
You are so fat!
You are so stupid!
No one will ever want to marry you!
You will fail!
You will never get out of high school!
You will never go to college!
Your marriage will never work!
You will never succeed!
You will never have anything!
You are going to get in a wreck!
You will get cancer!
I will fail this test!
I will never get out of this mess!

All negative comments! Negative, negative, negative!! So when constant negative is spoken, what direction does a person go in?—the wrong direction! So many children are criticized and torn down by the very words that are spoken to them. We all need to speak life into our situations! Speak positive!

Now, what does the Bible say about the Power of Spoken Words:

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

Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up…

Proverbs 12:18
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 13:3
Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.

Matthew 12:37
For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

James 3:1-6
…if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire…

So you see, the Bible even compares the tongue to a rudder on a huge ship, turning the ship in the direction that the rudder wants to go…So where do you want to go? Where do you want your children to go? We have to speak positively to our children…always building up, not tearing down!!
Now, since your tongue is your rudder, where do you want it to lead you– positive or negative, up or down, successful or not?? Think about it!!!
