“Words can be the source of life or death. Whoever likes to talk must accept the consequences. " 18.21 Proverbs
Many people are unaware that what they say is closely related to what they believe. If you let negative and destructive words come out of your mouth, you do not manifest your faith in God.
You say you believe in God, but do your words confirm what you believe?
The story of David and Goliath is a good illustration of this truth (1 Samuel 17). Consider all the negative words that David had to overcome before he could defeat the giant. His brother made fun of him. King Saul thought him too young. The other soldiers told him that it was impossible to triumph over such a formidable warrior.
David was faced with a choice. He could have proved them right. He could have begun to grumble about the impossibility of killing the giant. He could have complained that he was too small or that he did not have the proper weapons. But David had faith! He knew that his size or lack of weapons mattered little. He was convinced in the depths of his heart that God would help him to win.
Look at the words he chose to pronounce in these difficult circumstances: “You are marching against me with the sword, the spear and the javelin; and I go against you in the name of the Lord of hosts, of the God of the troops of Israel, whom you challenged. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head; today I will give the corpses of the Philistine camp to the birds of the air and to the beasts of the earth, and all the earth will know that Israel has a God. All this assembly will recognize that it is neither by the sword nor by the lance that the Lord saves. For the battle is the Lord's, and he has delivered you into our hand ”(1 Samuel 17.45-47).
These strong and powerful words not only built faith in David's heart, they also encouraged and strengthened all the troops of King Saul who heard them.
It's up to you if you want to pronounce words that will build your faith or destroy it.
You say believe in God, but do your words confirm what you believe
