Today's focus for MindSet Monday's is:
Commanding your Day by Speaking Life!
We have all heard the scripture Proverbs 18:21, “Death and Life are in the power of your tongue, and those who love it will eat it's fruit”. (NKJV) The message version breaks it down and says, "Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit-you choose." This scripture is simply telling us to choose our words wisely because there will be consequences. You can speak positive and encouraging words that give and bring life, or you can speak negative words that destroy. You can either build up someone or a situation or you can tear it down.
Your words produce fruit. They can either produce good fruit that gives life or bad fruit that will make you sick, that is a choice that you have to make. Not just a onetime choice, but a daily moment by moment choice. No matter the quality of the fruit, you will eat it. The question is do you really believe it? Think about a time when you spoke life with your words and spoke death and what the outcome was. Whether you believe it or not, your words have power. So much Power that they can alter your mood, actions and others. Your words don't just affect you but they affect everyone around you. When you complain are you speaking life or death to your situation? What have you been speaking over your life? If you really want to know start listening to your words and monitor what is coming out. Ask a close friend what your conversations consist of. Make the necessary changes to save your own life.
Choose the right words
It's prophesy over your life!
Let your life have a life!
My Challenge to you!
We have all used our words for death at some point, even if we didn't intend to. Today choose to take charge of your day by speaking life. Speak life to yourself and over your situations. Speak life to others. Speaking life releases power in the atmosphere. As you continue to speak well you will start believing the words you speak. Take Proverbs 18:21 and not just believe it but live by it. If you don't have anything positive to say to today, don't say anything at all! No one wants to be hurt or killed by your words, nor do they want you to die from your own. Bring life to yourself and everything around you by speaking a positive uplifting word today!
