This passage was in my devotion for this morning. God's Word has power, and what we speak and proclaim as believer's has power. Or, it can have a negative effect for us as well, if we choose to use our words unwisely.
I wonder what percentage of positive words we release each day in comparison to our negative ones? A lot of time, what we think or speak is not positive whatsoever, or productive in any manner.
We should choose positive or faith-filled words in our everyday conversations, giving God the opportunity to work wonders of grace throughout our day. Avoiding the pitfalls of negative words, actions, etc., etc..
10 Just as the rain and the snow
come down from the sky
and don’t return there
without watering the earth,
making it conceive and yield plants
and providing seed to the sower
and food to the eater,
11 so is my word
that comes from my mouth;
it does not return to me empty.
Instead, it does what I want,
and accomplishes what I intend.
Common English Bible (Nashville, TN: Common English Bible, 2011), Is 55:9–11.
