Matthew 12:36-37 (NIV)
But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.
Speak what you want to see in your child’s life.
Speak what you want to see in your spouse’s life.
Speaking life doesn’t mean you are living in denial, it means you are living by faith. It means you acknowledge that you are god, created in the image and likeness of the God who spoke the universe into existence. When you don’t speak life, you position yourself under the control of the universe instead of being in control of your world. Speaking life is kingdom lifestyle.
Your child was diagnosed with autism or a developmental disorder? Say “my child has a sound mind, my child’s spirit, soul, and body functions perfectly and properly like God created them to”..
Your child isn’t following the way of life you taught and showed him or her to live? Say “as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord”, “my child loves the Lord and is growing in wisdom”, “my child fears the Lord and is a threat to the kingdom of darkness”
I know it may sound illogical and ignorant but remember, your words are seeds and you reap what you sow. What you see is what it is but you have a choice to keep saying what’s wrong or say what you want to see. Speak the change you want to see.
Death and Life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). What are you doing with the power of your tongue? Are you cursing or speaking blessing over your children? Are you speaking faith or fear over them?
Please make a conscious effort to speak life and partner with the Holyspirit to help you. I have been making conscious effort to speak life even in chaos and I am a living proof that it works. Haaa, it works!
