What we speak comes into being. In Isaiah 55:11 it says, "So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose from which I sent it. On our spiritual journey, we have to give consciousness to watching our words.
Over the next week, take the time to hear yourself as much as possible. Listen to the words that you use and then take a look at your life. If something isn't happening, it certainly can be directly related to your words, which are your truth. Saying, "I can't this or that; I'm afraid; I won't ever be able to do it; I'm lonely; I'm sick; I hate my job; my car always breaks down; I'm not going to find a parking space" certainly continues to perpetuate what you don't want happening. For instance, if you do not feel well, don't keep talking about it, if you want to feel fabulous. Say, "I feel great" or "I'm healed." Or, let's say that you are working through a fear and you're inclined to say, "I'm scared." Well, don't let that be the end of the statement. Acknowledging where you are is real. However, add the power of God to the statement and say, "I feel afraid, but God doesn't embrace fear, so I don't have to." The goal is to speak words that claim and state what you want in your life. It's okay that you can't see it. Simply believe in the truth that God will bring it to you.
Watching your words makes you a better listener, for yourself and others, because you tend to pause, think and check yourself before you speak. You become much more positive about your life and in the conversations that you have. The negativity begins to leave your mouth and your mind. You open up your being to all the awesome things that God intends for you to have. Your faith becomes stronger because you're constantly affirming and believing. Releasing negative language will make you feel great spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. You may also find yourself quickly retracting those negative thoughts statements. Speak and believe the life you want. Always remember that what God wants for us is so much bigger than we can imagine!
I only say words that reflect what I want in my life.
