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.

Today’s history lesson courtesy of @mspackyetti and @politico... IT WAS NEVER ABOUT MORTALITY! #Repost @mspackyetti: this White House and conservative state governments across the country have been playing the long game: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Quietly change the courts at every level, including the Supreme Court, to secure conservative majorities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Pursue state bans on abortion through multiple strategies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Use the momentum and precedent to challenge Roe v. Wade altogether. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ THIS IS NOT ABOUT MORALITY. IT IS ABOUT POWER. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check it: the “religious right” essentially chose abortion as the fight because it could be used as a unifying political issue between Catholics and Protestants. White evangelicals had lost trying to defend segregation, and needed a new bandwagon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They were NOT up in arms when Roe became law. It was SIX years later when they decided to “care,” which only meant to make a power play. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even if you don’t care about that, know this: abortion bans DO NOT end abortions. They simply make them extremely dangerous and lethal for the women who have to go to back allies to have them. One in Four American women will have an abortion. Do you want her to be safe, or nah? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If that STILL doesn’t matter to you, how about this: Women are PEOPLE. We deserve control over our bodies, just like you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe and visit the links in my stories/ morning news highlights to get the real history of the politics of abortion in America and find out what YOU CAN DO to fight this back. Info on last two slides is from an article by Mia Brett. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outrage is meaningless if it doesn’t lead to action. ❤️✊🏾

“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” —#RosalynnCarter. • It’s always a joy catching up with alumni and spending time with the protégés during @jump_nation’s JUMP Weekend. But running into @mr_vico_ and his students, while also rocking my @hollateamusa gear today, gave me so much joy. • Vic, you have been a great leader in the making since entering Binghamton during BEP and as a PC, and you are greater still. Watching you now on the other side excelling as a mentor, chaperone, teacher, coach was such an honor. Keep on making us proud! #Bearcats4Life #WeAreBinghamton #ForTheCulture
