THE CREATIVE Power Of Our Words!

Our words have power. They can build up or tear down, encourage or discourage, heal or hurt. The Bible tells us that "life and death are in the power of the tongue" (Proverbs 18:21). This means that our words can have a profound impact on others, both for good and for bad. Our words can direct some to suicidal thoughts or redirect them thinking about life and that life is worth living.

  • Our words reflect our hearts.

The Bible says that "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" (Matthew 12:34). This means that our words are a window into our hearts. The words we speak reveal our thoughts, feelings, and attitudes. The very core of who we are.

  • Our words can create or destroy.

Our words can have a powerful impact on the people around us. They can build up their confidence or break down their spirits. They can encourage them to pursue their dreams or make them feel hopeless, worthless, and unwilling to try to pursue anything they come to feel out of reach.

  • Our words can heal or hurt.

Our words can be a soothing medicine to a wounded soul or a piercing dagger to the heart. They can be a source of comfort and strength or a source of pain and despair.

  • Our words can spread love or hate.

Our words can be used to spread love and kindness or to spread hate and division. They can be used to bring people together or

tear them apart.

  • Our words can be used to glorify God or to dishonor Him.

Our words can be used to praise God and to testify to His goodness or they can be used to blaspheme His name and to spread doubt, unbelief and even animosity towards Him.


  • We can learn to use our words with more purpose.

The good news is that we can learn to use our words with positive intent. We can train our tongues to speak words of encouragement, and hope. We can learn to speak caringly and help build up others with our words, such as a motivational speaker. The Holy Spirit can help us further to use our words wisely.

The Holy Spirit is our helper and guide. He can help us to use our words wisely and to speak the truth in love. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, our words will be used to glorify God, His Kingdom, and build up others all at the same time.

  • We can choose to speak words of life.

We have a choice about the words we speak. We can choose to speak words of life or words of death. We can choose to speak words that build up or words that tear down. We can choose to speak words that encourage or words that discourage.

  • We can make a difference with our words.

Our words have power to make a difference in the world. We can use our words to spread love, kindness, and hope. We can use our words to build up others and to make the world a better place.

  • Words Change Our Atmosphere.

Words can create a positive or negative emotional climate. When we speak words of encouragement, appreciation, and love, we create an atmosphere of warmth, support, and acceptance. On the other hand, when we speak words of criticism, judgment, or negativity, we create an atmosphere of tension, hostility, and fear.

  • Words can influence our thoughts and beliefs.

The words we use to talk to ourselves, and others can have a profound impact on our thoughts and beliefs. When we speak words of affirmation and possibility, we begin to believe that we are capable and worthy of good things. However, when we speak words of doubt and limitation, we start to believe that we are not good enough and that we cannot achieve our goals.

  • Words can inspire or discourage action.

When we speak words of encouragement and support, we motivate others to take action and pursue their dreams. On the other hand, when we speak words of doubt and discouragement, we can stifle people's motivation and make them less likely to take risks at all or even try new things.

  • Words can build or destroy relationships.

The words we speak to the people we care about can have a significant impact on our relationships, especially those closest to us. When we speak words of love, respect, and appreciation, we strengthen our bonds and deepen our connection with others.

However, when we speak words of criticism, judgment, or contempt, we can totally damage our relationships and create distance between ourselves and the people we love.

  • Words can create a sense of community.

When we use words to share our stories, connect with others, and build bridges of understanding, we create a sense of community and belonging. On the other hand, when we use words to divide and polarize people, we create an atmosphere of isolation, conflict, tension and even insight hostility and rebellion.

Once again, our words have the power to create or destroy positive atmospheres.

By choosing our words carefully and speaking with intention, we can create a world that is more loving, supportive, and inspiring. Speaking negatively about circumstances can make them worse, or unchanged - no matter our efforts.

It makes us focus our attention on the negative. When we talk about all the things that are wrong with a situation, we are essentially training our brains to focus on the negative.

This can lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy, where we start to see more and more negative things about the situation, and our negative expectations make it more difficult for us to find solutions or see any positive change.

It can discourage us from taking action. If we are constantly talking about how difficult or impossible it is to change a situation, we are less likely to put in the effort to try. This can lead to a cycle of inaction and despair, where we feel trapped, hopeless and helpless.

This can make it difficult to think clearly and creatively, and it can also make it more difficult to connect with others and build support.

The Law of Attraction states that we attract what we focus on. When we are constantly talking about all the things that are wrong with our lives, we are essentially sending out a message to the universe that we want more negative experiences. This can lead to a vicious cycle, where our negative thoughts and words attract more negative experiences, which then reinforce our negative beliefs.


Here are some specific examples of how speaking negatively about circumstances can make them worse:

  • If you are constantly complaining about your job, you are more likely to feel unhappy and dissatisfied at work.

  • If you are always talking about how bad your relationship is, you are more likely to experience problems and conflict in your relationship or relationships.

  • If you are always dwelling on your health problems, you are more likely to feel anxious and stressed about your health.

  • If you are always talking about how difficult it is to make money, you are more likely to struggle financially.

On the other hand, speaking positively about our circumstances can have the opposite effect. It can help us to focus on the positive, boost our motivation, create a positive emotional climate, and attract more positive experiences. If you find yourself speaking negatively about your circumstances, try to be more mindful of your words.

Challenge yourself to find something positive to say about every situation, even if it is just a small thing. You may be surprised at how much this simple shift can improve your outlook and your life.

  • We will be held accountable for our words.

The Bible says that "every careless word people speak they will give an account for on the day of judgment" (Matthew 12:36). This means that we will be held accountable for the words we speak, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

  • Let us be mindful of the creative power of our words.

  • Let us choose to speak words of life, words that will build up others and more importantly words that glorify God that bring revelation of His Kingdom.

  • In His Kingdom there is no negativity, no remorse, no sadness, no pain, no tears, no broken hearts, broken dreams, or fears of failure.

His Kingdom is joy, happiness, laughter, love, and peace, FOREVER!
