The Power Of Your Words

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Most people, when they desperately want something, will say things like, “I am dying for that piece of cake!” Few will say, “I am living for that piece of cake!”

What is worse is that we are quick to mention death when things go wrong. We Singaporeans are quick to say things like, “Die lah! Die lah!” at the drop of a hat. Nobody says, “Live lah! Live lah!”
Yet, the truth is that every word you speak has power — to build or destroy hopes and dreams, to restore or cause loss, to heal or break the spirit, to bring delight or despair, to bless or curse — for God’s Word says that death and life are in the power of your tongue.

So stop lining up your words with the negative circumstances around you. Instead, start lining up your words with God’s Word and release the power of His Word to work for you.

For example, instead of speaking lack and poverty, say, “God’s Word tells me that the good things are already here. I therefore pronounce my life blessed. I pronounce my life prosperous. I pronounce my life great. Darkness and gloom, poverty and sickness, defeat and depression, will not be in my life!”

Instead of speaking sickness and death, say, “I will live long. I will not die young because Jesus died young for me, so that I can live long for Him. I am the righteousness of God in Christ and God’s Word declares that no evil befalls the righteous. So no evil will come on me now and in the future!”

Instead of speaking fear over your children, say, “God’s Word declares that the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. Therefore, my children are delivered from every curse, from every power of darkness, from every evil. In the name of Jesus, I call forth a great, bright and blessed future for my children!”

God wants you to have a life filled with good days and an abundance of every good thing. So say, “In the name of Jesus, I prophesy blessings, favour, health, prosperity, protection, dominion and power to fill my life and my family’s!”

True Beauty

True Beauty
(Audrey Hepburn; one of women in the world that had Beauty and True Beauty)
For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness.

For beautiful eyes,
look for the good in others.

For a slim figure,
always share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful smile
to make children happy every day.

For poise,
walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

People, even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;
never throw out anyone.

You have two arms:
the first is to help yourself, the second one is to help others.

A woman's true beauty is not in her figure,
in the way she dresses, in the clothes she wears, or in the way she does her hair.

A woman's beauty is seen in her eyes,
because they are the window to her soul, the place where love dwells.

A woman's true beauty increases with years.

The beauty of a woman is not in superficial fashions; A woman's true beauty is reflected in her soul,
In her kindness and loving care, and in the passion she shows

You are unique, He loves you the way He made you, and you're beautiful in His eyes.
We're all unique and special.
In His eyes there is no ugliness no matter what you look like.
