What we say: the power of our words

March 20, 2019
Save for later!

What we say out loud is powerful and will propel us forward for better things, or for worse.

What can we do beyond healthy habits to fight illness, depression, or anything negative? I think the answer is in what we say.

Would you say the same things, complain the same way if your discussion and negativity were to instantly come to fruition?

Our brains are powerful. They work to bring the mind and body into sync. Basically, every word out of your mouth is an instruction for the brain.

We have to feed our minds with instructions to work towards good things for the body.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia two years ago. The symptoms that drove me to the doctor were many, but mainly inexplicable pain, extreme fatigue, migraines, strange tingling sensations, and swelling. To fight the debilitating symptoms of this central nervous system disorder, I work daily to live a healthy life and keep my mental state in the positive. It is a daily battle that takes my family’s cooperation.

I’m going to add one more vital healthy daily habit of water/vitamins/walking/positive entertainment/encouraging work  regimen.

Speak life and good things out loud. Say good things about our health, about our lives, about our finances, children, love.

If I am doing everything I can do to be healthy, then the next step beyond more of the positive and healthy  is to line up what I say with what I want. Let the power of our words, what we say line up with where we want to go.

We give our brains and bodies instructions with the words that come out of our mouths. We have to tell our brains and bodies what direction to head. How else do you fight when what you are experiencing has taken a long time to diagnose and deal with? With your faith, belief, and words.

I want life, health, abundance, to feel well, to be productive, so those instructions are what I need to tell my body.

Proverbs is clear on the power of the tongue.

Proverbs 18:21

21Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Proverbs 15:4

3The eyes of the LORD are in every place, observing the evil and the good. 4A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.

Consider this again. If everything you said came true, if everything you say out loud happened, then would you be more careful about what comes out of your mouth?

Ephesians 4:29

29Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building up the one in need and bringing grace to those who listen.

As someone who believes that we can speak things into being and give life to ideas and thoughts with the spoken word, it is clear that what we say is important.

Hebrews 11:1 (n 3 different translations) 

New American Standard Bible
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

King James Bible
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Christian Standard Bible
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.

Faith is exercised in acting on something you believe. We speak what we believe to be true. If faith is substance/reality, then these three things should line up. Belief, spoken word, and faith.

There is power in our words. What we say is important.

Tie these together as part of integrity. What we believe is what we say, and what we say is our action.

Your brain likes to sync up, operate in line with all systems. Let it work for you and not against you. 

Add prayer, and God will bless the words coming out of your mouth. 

Faith, belief, and spoken word.

Barefoot, speaking life, and writing,

Kim
