God expects us to honor our word! When we give our word it is called, “a vow”. We see today that God takes our words very seriously and holds us accountable for what we say. Often we hear teaching about why our words are important but we ignore them because we question how our words can be so powerful?
This is an area where we disadvantage ourselves. We may not think our words have power but God does! From the beginning of the world, words have mattered. Regardless of the little kids chant, “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me”, words can and do hurt. They shape our whole lives.
Watch how often you say things and they actually come true. “I get a cold every winter.” “No one every gives me a chance.” “I always take one step forward, two steps back.” This is just a small sample.
Start speaking positive words over your life and watch them start occurring. Trust your words, God does!
