Today’s Words of Wisdom: Word’s Matter…

I have not posted for what feels like ages as my life has been non-stop chaos.  However, today there is a message in my spirit that I must share.  I receive daily inspirational words from a friend.  Today’s message on the words we use hit home.  For some time now I have been working on my ability to speak faith-filled messages all of the time, no matter the audience or circumstance.  My truth: I am a very direct person that struggles, from time to time, with not saying exactly what I think or how I feel unless I do not trust the person- then I rarely say what I really think or feel.

A praise post I received from a friend crafted by Ted Lucas, @TedLucasSNSCEO, was a perfect message to remind me how important it is to use words wisely.  I hope his words can inspire you as well…

TODAY’S WORD

God created the heavens and the earth and everything that is in the earth by His words (Heb. 11:3). The whole creation was made by, and responds to, words. Our words, when spoken in faith, release either life or death (Prov. 18:21) and will affect people, things, and circumstances. We can release the power that is in faith by our words.

Every word counts. There is no such things as an “idle” word which will not work for us or against us. Our words can be our most powerful weapon against the devil, or they can become a snare of the devil (Prov. 6:2). Faith-filled words can move mountains.

The faith that made Jesus marvel was a faith in the authority of the spoken word (Mt. 8:8, 10). We are to believe in the power of our words. If we begin to speak words in faith that line up with God’s Word, then we will have the positive results that follow. But if we continue to speak words of doubt, we will eventually believe them and have the negative things that these words produce. Death or life are in the power of every word we speak.

Faith is released by speaking words. Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains or to whatever our problem might be. Most people speak to God about their problem, but few follow Jesus’ instructions and speak directly to the “mountain.” God has put certain things under our authority and we must exercise it. When a problem stands in our way, we must speak to the problem and command it to get out of our way in the name of Jesus. Speak God’s Word today. His Words will produce life.

Have a relaxing and safe break to all my Bing students, we all need the rest! #SApro #alwaysbusy #CSAM #staycation “We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you would threaten the man.”
- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It’s time to teach our girls to soar! #DayoftheGirl

Loved this collab!!! #naturalhair #curlyhair #SAPro #AdvisorDuties #AlwaysBusy #fortheculture Honoring the original first people... Happy Indigenous Peoples Day! #rewritinghistory #indigenouspeoplesday Today's #ResistenceTool: Find your Anchor.  Today I woke up with that I don't want to move, it's just way too much feeling.  Every day another fight breaks out-- it's overwhelming.  And then I read some inspiring words, watched a few hot dance numbers and moved.  The battle will rage before it is won, to stand firm find at least one person, place, hobby or thing that helps you stay grounded and going strong.  It's ok to laugh; to cry tears of joy; or to get your twerk on-- yes I said it, twerk that thang gal! #Resist #resistencetools #Resistance #resistence #myblackisbeautiful You did that, @imsojreed! ・・・
#forthepeoplechallenge #rp #myblackisbeautiful Today's resistance tool: No matter what you do, what you say, and how you do or say it -- some will not like it.  Do it any way.  Some people, deep down, are selfish; and they may or may not realize. They are only down for the movement if it goes the way they want, and when asked to let someone else take the lead, shared that their perception on the message/conversation may be warped or shared that there's another way to get it done, they throw in the towel-- because its not about the movement, it's about what's best for them.  Well, let them walk away, because the movement may be better for it! Then, sometimes people need to be critical because the movement itself has become an act of one.  So, stop and process- then listen, learn, adapt and push forward.  It's not about you, and it never was! #resist #resistance #resistancetools #teachthebabies #fortheculture #myblackisbeautiful
