Powerful Words 1
"Sticks and Stones will break my bones, but Words will never hurt me." When we were young this statement most likely came up. However, we know that the tongue can cut like a sword. We have the power to speak life or death into those around us.
"Sticks and Stones will break my bones, but Words will never hurt me." When we were young this statement most likely came up. However, we know that the tongue can cut like a sword. We have the power to speak life or death into those around us. The words we think influence us sometimes more than the words of others. Words from great leaders have changed or shaped our futures, and the Living Word of God changes us for eternity.
At the beginning of the year, I, like a lot of others, pray and seek God to give us a single word to focus on for the year. This usually ends up being something that that God is wanting to change in me or through me. People also use words to destroy strongholds. Affirmations that they say every day to focus them on what is true.
