“63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63 KJV
Words have power, and words have life! That’s not just my opinion, the Word tells us in Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (NKJV) I’m excited to see growth in my life from positive seeds (words) that have been spoken, and grateful that those words spoken to me with the intent to harm me, did not. We must understand that like all things, the word of God – like seeds in the ground, take time to come forth.
When you are moved by the spirit of God, keep your flesh under subjection as the work of the flesh will not profit you. When you understand the doctrine of God’s word and His Kingdom, you will be emPOWERed to live a full life. Along with the Word, you must also rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you in truth and bring back to your remembrance every Word spoken concerning your life and future.
The Word gives life, so as you’re reading these pages, hear what the Spirit of God is speaking, say what the Spirit of God is speaking, and see the manifestation of His power in your life!
Father, I ask that you aid me in bridling my tongue, that my words be words of life, that my flesh profits nothing but your spirit be my guide. Thank you in Jesus’ Name. Amen
