THE POWER OF OUR WORDS Rosa Enid Cruz Roque Written, September 2002 Changes, December 17, 2014
Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue. The Word of God teaches us that what we speak is extremely important. The words we say, will bring forth fruit. They could bring destruction for us and for those around us or they could bring life.
Proverbs 12:18 says, Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise brings healing (NLT). Our words could be harmful to a person or they could be as medicine.
Every day we have to make decisions. I hope everyone of us choose to speak in a way that glorifies God and brings healing to others around us. With the Holy Spirit guiding us, we can accomplish this. I use to hear people said that "words are gone with the wind". But the Word of God teaches me something different. It teaches me that there is power in what we speak. Let us Speak Life.
