In a recent encounter with the Lord I was lifted up in the Spirit over the waters of a great Sea of Words. These words were every word that had been spoken on the earth since time had begun, whether words of blessing and life, or idle words and death and cursing. I could see some very ancient words spoken by the saints of old and others, more recent, which had been spoken that very morning.
I watched with the Lord the power of words being released from the people on the earth. There were voices from the enemy, speaking lies into the ears of the people of the earth. Some people believed the lies and began to speak them out loud, and the waters began to become treacherous waves and currents bringing destruction. Then there was a Voice of Love and Peace that was being released all of the time, a constant rhythm of grace that, when heard and agreed with and spoken, made the treacherous waters become waves of love and grace with a rhythm that brought peace and Shalom. The word of blessing and life always prevailed.
We are in a great season where our words matter. We will either release waves of blessings so this generation can ride into our destiny, or a storm surge of waves that destroy and hold back the blessing from coming forth. Let’s shape our world with words of blessing and life!
Your life will follow your words! There is power in your words. Choose your words wisely; let them be filled with life and love. Let us plant the things we want, not what we do not want.
Proverbs 16:23-24 The Voice (VOICE)
23 From a wise heart flow careful words;
wise words make the lips more persuasive.
24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb:
they drip sweet food for life and bring health to the body.
You can have what you say! Don’t doubt or be divided in your heart! Declare and Believe!
Mark 11:23 The Passion Translation (TPT)
“23 Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.”
Jesus always spoke to the problem, not about the problem.
He shared with us a profound reality: What you speak out of your mouth is what is abundant in your heart.
