The power of words
Children watch the words that come out of your mouth. You have to be diligent and guard your mouth gates. No longer utter curses upon yourself and your loved ones. No matter how bad the situation is speak words of faith and not words of fate. Your words are power and they like my words will go forth and bear fruit. The question is what kind of fruit are your words bearing. With your lips you can utter life and with your lips you can murder each other. Words are seeds that can be planted in the hearts and minds of those listening to them, therefore, be careful with your words. Words have started wars, words have spread dissension, words have destroyed and created entire nations. Families have been split up because of words of bitterness and hate. Words can also bring reconciliation among those who were once separated by bitter words. This is a season of acceleration in all things including what you decree with your mouth. Speak good so that your words may bear good fruit not only in your life but also in the lives of those over whom you have influence for example your own children. The cultures of old knew the importance of words, they knew that you can bless or curse someone merely by uttering a word. By curse I am not talking about mixing up portions and uttering dark sayings. What I mean is for example some parents abuse their children with words by calling them names or telling them they are useless. Some children cannot break away from these bitter words and they grow up believing that they are useless. They also accept anything in their lives that reinforces that notion. They are not cursed with a curse but these negative words that were uttered over them for so long sank into their hearts and now it is almost impossible for them to see themselves any differently. Children as you read my words you will notice the power of the uttered word. There are many instances where a Father placed his hands over his children and uttered a word of blessing and in some cases you can actually follow the life of that child into adulthood and see that the blessings uttered over them came to pass in their lives. Prophets laid hands on their students and uttered words of blessings over them; a prime example is Elijah and Elisha. Abraham blessed Isaac, Isaac blessed Jacob and Jacob blessed his sons and none of the words of blessings they uttered ever failed. In much the same way words of rebuke also came to bear fruit in the lives of those who were rebuked, prime examples include Noah and Ham, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau. These words did not fail either. I uttered a curse upon the serpent in Eden and my words will not return to me void. Children it is past time to be careful about the words you utter. Like I said earlier this is a time of acceleration, the words that you utter will be like the reaper overtaking the sower because as soon as the seed hits the ground it sprouts and bears fruit. Plant good seeds from blessed words that you may be rewarded with good fruit. Do not curse and expect a blessing, a good seed produces good fruit but a bad seed can only produce spoiled fruit.
