“The power of life and death lye in the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21); this is a principle that I was reminded of while listening to a sermon this passed Sunday. Afterwards, I was having a conversation with my best friend about the truth in/ramifications of this principle. What if every single word we speak manifested instantaneously?
Words, like all other aspects of God’s creation, carry a certain level of energy. As we have discussed before, energy accumulates to make things happen in the physical realm. If this process took place immediately after our saying it, many of us would be in some extremely precarious predicaments. This is why it is important to be conscious of what we say. Let us be thankful that there is a delay in what we say and the amount of time it takes before we actually experience it.
The goal here is to ensure that whatever we say we:
- Truly mean to say it
- Have considered and accept the consequences of its manifestation
- Speak words that align with our destiny and/or who and what we choose to be
- Speak words of life and love as opposed to the opposite
Always remember the litmus test of “Kind+Honest+True”. And so it is…
