Words have power and they are life.One of the most intriguing passages in the scriptures is in Ecclesiastes 5:6. It shows how powerful and at the same time how dangerous our words are. Ecclesiastes 5:6 (CEV)”Don’t let your mouth get you in trouble! And don’t say to the worship leader (an angel), “I didn’t mean what I said.” God can destroy everything you have worked for, so don’t say something that makes God angry”.
The wisest man in the Old Testament is giving a very simple advice, “don’t let your mouth get you in trouble”. Why is this important, he continues, ”neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error” better put by the Message translation “When called to account, you won’t get by with “Sorry, I didn’t mean it.” This gives the picture that every word we speak is being attended to by an angel” and once uttered, you get results, be it good or bad. The bible makes us understand that angels are only spirit-messengers sent to serve and care for those who are to receive his salvation. Hebrews 1:14 (TLB)
Jesus himself showing how powerful our word is Matthew 12:36 (MSG)”Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously”. Jesus knew what He was talking about, He being the Word made flesh, by the Word was everything visible and invisible made (John 1:3).
Solomon in the proverbs said Proverbs 18:21 (MSG)Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
Just as you can change the course of your life via your thought pattern, same goes with your words. Give your guarding angel something positive to work with. Always talk positive and productivity and your angel will be pretty busy working to make them come to reality.
Our opening scripture says God can destroy the works of your hands by saying the wrong things. This means He can build and sustain the works of your hand by talking right.
Remember no word is idle (i.e. ineffective or unproductive), it pays its dividend every time, be it good or bad, you determine!
I appreciate your time, Thank you and God bless you.
