The words we speak…Written By Michelle-Lee Young
What are words? Words are used to bring meaning; they can be spoken, written or produced in song. They affect everything that we do and our words affect all of those around us. Once a word is spoken it cannot be unspoken, it has left our mouths and is now in the universe to be heard and then understood. By our words we can encourage, build, love and inspire. By our words we can discourage, tear down, hate and hurt. We see words everywhere we go, on signs directing us as we travel.
We see words that compel us and see words that are used to entice us. Powerful are the words that we hear and that we see. Language is a way of putting words together to help us relate to one another and understand one another. God used words to speak and create and then those same words became flesh and blood. God’s word will stand the test of time, and can be used as a plummet line for our lives. If it doesn’t line up with the one truth it is not truth. With our words we can lie, with our words we can deceive. The words we speak are in our control. We can speak life as did Ezekiel in the Bible, when he spoke the dry bones and they became alive.
Every word that is spoken is seed that we sow and will bear fruit just like a physical seed. Every tree is known of its fruit. The Bible says in Matthew 7:17 “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit”. There are words that are spoken to us as children that we never forget-- and those words a lot of times will direct the steps we take as adults.
A song can touch a heart through its words because those words have meaning. We must guard the words that we speak each day. We don’t know how our words will touch another person’s life. We must control the things that we say to our children or we could say something that could affect them for years to come. The closer that we draw to God and His Word the more our words become like his. It is then when the words we speak are spoken in love just like he spoke his words to us.
His words have stood the test of time from generation to generation and will always stand and will always bring life. The Word of God speaks life into us, gives us hope and a purpose for living.
So very thankful for the Words He has spoken and left for me as a guide to live by. The words from the author and the finisher of my faith! Jesus.
For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. Isaiah 119: 89-90
May the Lord Bless you and keep you!
