Words are seen in English language as the smallest unit of language which has a particular meaning and can be expressed by itself. It is the smallest, discrete, meaningful unit of language. Basically, words have been used as a means of communication and interaction.
In our everyday life, we use words to communicate our thoughts, opinions and ideas and for interacting with others. Unfortunately, the basic use of words have made us treat with gross negligence the power of words and how the adversely affect our lives. We never pay attention to the fact that words bear with them a spiritual dimension and implication because we have preoccupied our minds with the physical dimension of words only.
According to Huff-Post, words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. They are not mere vocabulary uttered to express ourselves as we think them to be. They come with serious spiritual implications which I would be sharing shortly. It will interest you to know that Satan knows how powerful words are and unlike you, he never underestimates the power of words.
He knows that by making you lose control of your tongue, he can assume control over your life. If he can get you to be careless with words, he can lay hold and claim on your future hence you must be extremely careful with your words.
The following scriptures would open your eyes to the power of words and the importance of not using them carelessly; “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” — Psalms 19:14 (KJV) “Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” — Psalms 141:3 (KJV) “Where there is much talk there will be no end to sin, but he who keeps his mouth shut does wisely.” — Proverbs 10:19 (BBE) “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” — Proverbs 16:24 (KJV) “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
— Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) “He who keeps watch over his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles.” — Proverbs 21:23 (BBE) "I tell you that every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” — Matthew 12:36-37 (WEB) “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” — Matthew 15:11 (KJV) "Even so the tongue is a small part of the body, but it takes credit for great things.
How much wood may be lighted by a very little fire! And the tongue is a fire; it is the power of evil placed in our bodies, making all the body unclean, putting the wheel of life on fire, and getting its fire from hell." — James 3:5-6 (BBE) “For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:” — 1 Peter 3:10 (KJV) Without further ado, let me show you two powerful spiritual implications of words 1. Words are for Creation Over and above the basic use of words (communication and interaction), words are used for bringing about possibilities. They are spiritual tools for the enterprise of creation as we see in Genesis chapter one. God used words to create the world.
He had a mental picture of what He wanted the world to look like but He had to utter words to create His mental image. "And God said..." – Genesis 1:3 Until God spoke, the earth remained in its void and formless state. The whole world came to be by a function of spoken words. Like God, use words to create the things you want to see. With spoken words you can call forth the things you want to see in your life that you have not begun to see. You can create the kind of life and future you want using words. Stop talking about your situation. Say only the things you want your situation to look like not what it is looking like.
Let your confessions be positive so you create positivity around your life. Making confessions such as "I am finished", "I am dead", "Life is hard", "I can't" e.t.c would only create negative possibilities around you. Instead of saying it as it is, say it as you want it to be. Speak the possibilities you want to see in your life. Always remember this: Say what you want to see not what you are seeing. 2. Words Are Conveyors Of Spiritual Realities “And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.” — Ezekiel 2:2 (KJV) I consider this the most powerful dimension of words; the conveying of spiritual realities. Anytime words are spoken, spirits and the realities domiciled in the spirits are transmitted.
As God was speaking to Prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 2:2, the prophet records that the Spirit of the Lord entered into him and the reality of his ministry was transmitted into his life. The words God spoke to Ezekiel in Ezekiel chapter two were not for communication or information. They were the medium with which God transferred His Spirit into Ezekiel and commissioned him. When a man mounts the pulpit, it will interest you to know that as he speaks the spirit which supports his speech is transferred into his listeners. How do you explain how words as simple as "You're healed", "Fire all over your body", "Rise Up and walk" carry great spiritual power? In Acts 3, Peter and John demonstrated how spoken words can transfer spiritual realities from the speaker to the hearer. In verse 6 of Acts 3, Peter said "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I give thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk".
The words were not so powerful in themselves but because of the Spirit backing the spoken words, a reality of Divine healing was conveyed and the man began to walk. Let me tell you a story that further buttresses the power of spoken words.
The great Apostle J.A Babalola of blessed memories was about to break his fast on one occasion. So he requested his daughter to prepare tea for him. The little girl was sluggish in carrying out the biddings of the great man of God. Angrily, he shouted at her saying "Why are you behaving like a mad person?". At that spot, the little girl became insane. He had to cast out the spirit of insanity from her before she became normal and sane again. His words transferred a spiritual reality into his daughter. You must never use words carelessly dear reader. It is due to this powerful implications of words that the devil is concerned about making you lose control of your tongue. When he gets you to begin to utter negative words, you energize him and his demons to act on your words and bring the reality of the negative things you uttered.
You must discipline yourself never to let out words which gives room for the devil to operate. Speak words that allows the Spirit of God to find expression in your life. Your words can create and destroy. Your words can transmit spiritual realities. Before you go, read the FREE OFFER below; Hi, I am Brodrick Emmanuel Ebube.
