Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Vain stupid useless powerless negative words grieve God! Do you ever just have those days where you realize that your mouth is stuck in a rut and all it is doing is spewing out negative garbage and you aren’t too sure how to stop it? I have had those moments where I knew that I was doing it, but I just kept going and at the same time wondering why I wouldn’t or couldn’t stop. I didn’t need anyone else around to beat me up because I was the heavy weight champion that day, knocking myself out!
Don’t ever say, I’m too fat, I’ll never lose this weight, I never do anything right, I’m not pretty, I’ll never get that job! Words are a container for power!! There’s more power in your words than you realize! Be careful what you are speaking over yourself and your family! Be careful what you say and the thoughts you dwell on where your spouse is concerned as well! Don’t sit around all day allowing the negative consume you because it will eat away at whatever good there is. Focus on the positive things about your spouse and pray for God to work on whatever He sees that needs to be worked on in your life, your spouses life and your children’s lives. Be careful that your words aren’t tearing them down.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is
helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit
those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you
were sealed for the day of redemption.
According to the Bible we will give an answer for every idle, powerless, useless word we speak! If you are struggling with negativity get in your Bible more and talk to God about it then speak it! God has promised Healing for our mouths if we give Him control!
Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
