Power of spoken words – Prayer for December 29. Words have tremendous power. Through the words we can do huge things, but not only positive ones. Our words have the power to destroy and the power to build up. Usually negative statements begin with negative thoughts, so we need to control them.
Bible Verse for Today
“And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell.” (James 3: 6)
Bible describes the tongue as a fire which can burn whatever we touch with our words. When we say the wrong things, it can be like a fire in our lives. We should keep this in mind before we use our words against another person. Jesus reminds us that the words we speak are actually the overflow of our hearts (Matthew 12:34–35).
When our thoughts are negative, they make our words negative as well. We can stop to talk that way by starting thinking in another way. Let us start to control what’s going out of our mouths. We can prevent the fire by saying the right thing. But we can only say the right thing, if we think the right thing.
Make room for the Holy Spirit in your life. Allow the Holy Spirit to influence your thoughts and let Him lead you to a life of positive words.
