Speak words of life and color your life
Write a New Script and See the Difference!
On this Page I wish to share with you some things the Spirit of God brings my way at times concerning the VALUE of Speaking Words of Life when it comes to our life and the lives of others. What you read here could be the most important content you read on this Site if you grasp these principles.
“Our words set the direction for our lives.”
“Change the way you speak about yourself and you can change your life.”
Creative Power of Words
It says in His Word that "God spoke and things were...and we have the same spirit"..... We see on the day of Creation how He said "Let there be light and there was light" etc And He also tells us that "We are made in His Image"......our words have an impact too, in a lesser sense. Our words can create a happy state of mind and circumstances OR chaotic even.
Everything God made, He said was GOOD....and man knew nothing but Good until he touched the "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil". Adam and Eve were living in a real Paradise in that Garden of Eden before that..........and then everything changed......... including their words because they lied for the first time and their words would have become negative. They would have experienced the same negative thoughts and emotions we do.
The effects from what they did were passed down to us along with that same knowledge of good and evil that came into the world through their consent -
we have experienced depression, anger, frustration and disappointment etc ever since. And we have a vocabulary of Good and Bad things we say every day_ positive and negative; happy and sad; constructive and destructive; polite and impolite; uplifting and upsetting etc
Order your day and life with Good Words
on a daily basis.
Can you believe this, that our words do actually have an impact on our thoughts and feelings and those of others around us. I have witnessed a few families that are very unhappy and upset much of the time because a good amount of the content of their words are full of negativity and worry.......and two families on the verge of separation because one or two members in conflict, with little or no restraint over their words has reaped havoc on the entire family.
Things don't have to be that way, really they don't, if we practice some CARE and caution over the words we speak. It's kind of like making out a Menu - as it were - with the words of our mouths for that immediate day, following days,
weeks or months of our lives.
It's amazing, the difference Good, Wholesome, Healthy Words can make to a day......and......have you ever noticed the way you can change your mood-level just by speaking some positive words (maybe cheering yourself up) on certain occasions? (maybe for someone else's benefit even).
We are Encouraged to do this in Scripture
this is more than worldly affirmations!
The Lord tells us in His Word that "He is the High Priest of our Confession"
this means that when we speak His Words and words about His Goodness,
Kindness, Faithfulness....He presents them to the Father....and He honors them
like our prayers of faith and praise. Heb 3:1
We are told to "Consider Him as the High Priest of our Confession" Heb 3:1
Most of us have not been aware of this and the blessing that follows when we respond on a consistent basis.
Hebrews 4:14: “Seeing then that we have a great
High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us
hold fast our confession.” To hold fast means to say something, then keep
on saying it.
Hebrews 10:21, 23 says "let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who
promised is faithful”
David said words like "I will Praise The Lord....yes I will Bless The Lord....His Praise shall be continually in my mouth"
In Scripture, to Praise is to speak Highly of and elevate. To Bless is to speak Well of
(His Goodness and Virtues) making a Good Report.
In several places David said this "I will....I shall...." It was a deliberate Act of Choice to Raise his Voice and Glorify God. The ONLY time when we can glorify God in silence is when we wait for HIM ALONE to Answer us or Listen Closely to the Holy Spirit_ "His still small Voice"
"I will Extol The Lord at all times, His Praise shall continually be in my mouth" PS 34:1
We Lift Him Up in this way....we Elevate Him Above our circumstances....and give Him the Honor
and privilege of Reigning in our lives. Negative confession does not do this, it only hinders
the process of Good things in our lives....He wants to do....He has promised us.
You know in scripture, how He desires that we should Praise and Exalt His Name?
Well, He also says that "He has magnified His Word above His Name"
The Hebrew word for this is "Promises"....that's how highly He thinks of
HIS PROMISES TO US!
So do not magnify His enemies by negative words that multiply the 'not so good'
in your lives. Elevate HIM in your Praise and Confession (the words you speak).
For He rightly says "To him/her who Orders his/her conversation aright, I will
Show the SALVATION of God"....it is to be a continual ever-present thing in
the Hearts and Lives of His children who walk in this way.
So "Offer Him Praise and Order your conversation Right"
Don't let sad words and negative words leave you in a hurry
as He once told me through someone prophetically.
He was telling me that I will have the Victory over circumstances
if He has the Victory over my mouth.
(I had been overwhelmed at the time).
ARE YOU LIFTING HIM UP TODAY?
All the best to you
as you begin to Color your Life
and make it bright
with the Promises and Goodness of God.
You can read more about this on the Words for Life Page
"Things are not as hard as we think they are when our decision is made
~ it's a springboard to all good things."
"Refrain from negative words ~ speak Faith and Victory into your present and future days,
forgetting things that are past."
"Refuse to be defined by experiences you've had or present circumstances.
Don't even define yourself ~
let Jesus do that because He has a clearer picture."
"Sometimes we need new fresh attitudes to place ourselves where Jesus can bless us.
And in fact, that is one of His best blessings ~ pray for some and apply them consistently."
“We develop Character by doing things we don't want to do ~ not just those things we like to.”
"You can’t just wish change; you have to live it gradually for it to become a reality."
"Don't let Smiles go out of your life - they will keep you from sadness, worry and strife."
"Obstacles are more easier overcome when we don't magnify them."
"Fill your thoughts with pleasant things - the results will be pleasing to your soul."
"When we start telling telling ourselves we can, we start to know we will."
"God is interested in the activities of my day. He always has time for me!"

Terry Law tells us in his book "Power of Praise" that we believe the words that we speak
(we hear ourselves saying) more than anyone's. So yes, it is important the words that we speak.
And you know, that just like "Faith comes from hearing His Words" we can speak them to
ourselves, each other and to God and faith will rise in our hearts.
Terry explains Confessing His Words with the verse from Rom 10:10
"We believe with our hearts and are justified and we confess with our mouths and so we are saved."
So we are means IN THIS WAY He Saves/He Works.
Terry also says that just as the thoughts of our hearts can lead to or influence the words of our mouths,
this can also work the other way round if we are persistent and consistent. These New Words from
our mouths - God's Words, Good Words, Cheerful Words can lead to or influence Good, Positive and Healthy thoughts in our hearts. They can NURTURE our FAITH!
The above is my understanding/rendition of Terry Laws encouragements on Rom 10:10
And you know that the Apostle Paul says in the immediate next verse that He/she who finds The Lord
this way OR walks this way "No one who believes in Him will be disappointed or put to shame".
Yes, how would you like to show The Lord you believe in Him like this more often?
You Can_ because Paul also says "As you received Jesus also continue to Walk In Him" Col 2:6
And that's the way people received Christ as their Lord and Savior in New Testament Days!"
You could say (in a sense) that Paul is saying to us
"If you want to avoid disappointments more often....if you really want to bring God Glory....
walk in this way!"
For years, I kept 2 books I had read (partly). One was the Power of Praise by Terry Law
and the other was Me and my Big Mouth by Joyce Meyer. I did not put them into practice....
started to for several days and left it aside - as it were - and The Lord actually reminded me
in different words I was given prophetically by 3 different Christians. He thought this
So Important! Yes, it is for ALL of us!
Paul said to us in Col 2:6 that "If we continue to walk as we did when we received Him, we will be Built Up and our Faith will take Root"....do you want to build Tap Roots so your Faith can be Unshakable?
COUPLE THESE PRINCIPLES WITH PRAISE!!!
Scripture says "With our hearts we believe and with our mouths we confess
those things pertaining to Salvation"
This principle applies throughout our lives in Jesus.
WHAT ARE YOU BELIEVING FOR?
Believing is an Active Word....this is an excellent way to Activate our Faith!!!
And make sure those things you are believing for are not mostly "Me" orientated.
(That is not healthy and Jesus can't bless that - aim for balance).
