“I believed, and therefore I have spoken . . . .”
(2 Corinthians 4: 13)

If you want to know what you believe, listen to what you say. Your words reveal what is in your heart, for the Word of God says that “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12: 34).

God created the entire universe with words. Made in His image, we create our personal universe with our words.

So, what words are you speaking?

For the next 24 hours, listen closely to what you are saying. Are you speaking words of life or words of death? Are you speaking words that build or words that destroy? Are you speaking words that heal or words that wound?

Your words control your destiny. The Bible tells us that “death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18: 21). The words you choose to speak will create your future. Just as God created the universe with words, so do we create our future with words.

Choose now to speak only words of life. In so doing, you will be imitating your Father in Heaven.

Author Photo - SmallWinston Churchill is famous for many things, but one of his most well-known claims to fame is the speech he gave at his alma mater, Harrow Academy, on October 29, 1941.  In this pivotal speech, Churchill spoke these words: “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Author Photo - SmallThe 21st century with all of its technological discoveries has engendered a new disorder called Overwhelm. Grammatically speaking, “overwhelm” is a verb, not a noun.  But the case is strong for making it a noun as well.

Author Photo - SmallIn I Corinthians 3:9, Scripture tells us that we are co-laborers with Christ. As such, we cooperate with Him in accomplishing His work in the earth.

Those of us who are writers cooperate with Christ by writing what He wants us to write when He wants us to write it and how He wants us to write it.  In other words, we submit our artistic will to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
