Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Galatians 6:7).
The Lord Jesus, in narrating the parable of the sower, said, “A sower went out to sow his seed…” (Luke 8:5). Then in the eleventh verse, He explained that the seed the sower sowed was the Word of God, letting us know that words are seeds and that what you sow is what you reap. If you sow the right words into your life and future, they’ll produce the right harvest.
Your words are important; steer your life in God’s direction for you with the right words. Jesus said you shall have what you say (Mark 11:23). You can’t keep speaking negatively and expect to have an excellent life. Proverbs 15:4 says, “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
” A wholesome tongue is one that speaks life, health, righteousness, and abundance.
Perverseness, on the other hand, means crookedness; inconsistent and contradictory choice of words that deform and destroy the human spirit! Many unknowingly bruise their spirits when they speak words that are inconsistent with the provisions of the Gospel.
This is why you must consistently talk right. Speak forth the blessed Word of God and sustain yourself in the transcendent life.
Your life goes in the direction of your words. If your words are excellent, your life will be excellent. Your life today isn’t an accident; it’s the result of all the words that you’ve been speaking, positive or negative. Create the future you desire! Only speak words that are consistent with the glorious life of righteousness, peace, health, wealth, and joy that God has made available to you in Christ Jesus.
I have such a beautiful and transcendent life in Christ. I’m the expression of God’s glory, grace, wisdom, and righteousness. The Word of God has produced life in me! I walk in victory always and live triumphantly to the glory of His Name. Blessed be God!
