Your Words Carry Power!

Where the word of a king is, there is power… Ecclesiastes 8:4

In Bible times, a king’s word carried tremendous power. What he decreed would come to pass. It would be done. For example, if he said, “Raise the taxes,” the taxes would be raised.

Do you know that we are kings? The Bible tells us that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made us kings. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as kings in Christ, our words carry power too.

When we place our hands on a sick person and say, “Be healed,” the person is healed. When we lay hands on our children and say, “Be blessed,” our children are blessed. There is power in our words because they are the words of kings!

When I was a young Christian in my teens, I wanted to practice what I had learnt about the power of my words. There was this particular plant near my home and whenever I passed by it, I would say to it, “Be cursed in Jesus’ name!”

Many days passed. And I will never forget the day when I noticed that the leaves of the plant had turned brown! You may want to try this at home with your potted plants, but bless them instead!

Since our words carry power, can you imagine the harm we do when we say to our loved ones things like, “You are always so careless”, “You are good for nothing” or “You are so stupid”? We are cursing them!

The devil is happy when you use the power of your words against yourself and your loved ones. He wants to see you defeated. So instead of saying, “I am always short of money,” say, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1) Instead of saying, “I am so useless. I can’t do anything,” start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

Beloved, remember that as a king, what you say will come to pass because where the word of a king is, there is power. So learn to say what God says about you in His Word and see His promises come to pass in your life!

Thought For The Day – As kings in Christ, our words carry power. When we speak God’s promises, they will come to pass.

  1. Amen! It’s rather surprising to me that there is any controversy over this, but there is. Words are so powerful, Christ is called The Word. John 1:1 tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” So we can create things with our very words! Perhaps not a Ferrari, but you know what I mean. 🙂

    Our words can literally change lives for good or bad. That’s kind of scary! We need to pay attention to how and what we speak over selves and others. It matters.

    1. Any controversy only serves to show how far we have fallen or moved away from God’s will for humanity.
      You’ve said it all. Made in the image of God, we create with our words – life or death.
      LOL, but it’s really not impossible to create/bring a Ferrari into your future with words. Heck, give it a try just for the fun of it.

      Ever since I’ve become aware (I know that’s it true and real) that words are so powerful and that they’re tiny seeds that become implanted in hearts and will literally grow into trees; I try (not always successfully) but I am a lot more mindful of the words I speak over others and myself. And also of the words I allow others to speak over me. I do not allow pride to keep me silent. I’ll rebuke and reject words that others say that I do not agree with.

      A great weekend to you.

  2. I see color storm edited in a response of his own into my comment of invitation to you on his post. I did say thanks and promised to be on best behaviour when you visit my blog, but that seems to be in moderation at the moment.
    Leaving this here just in case it doesn’t make it out at CS’s post. -kia

    1. Glad you were blessed by this.
      Our words are indeed powerful. May we strive to be mindful of this and try to choose words that edify and bless.
      A beautiful weekend to you.
