Feeling discouraged?

When you fall into a pit of exhaustion, fear, desperation or worry … be careful not to fall into the trap of doing desperate, destructive, sinful and illegal things to get out of your situation.

When the flesh or faith are weak, one can be tempted to seek short cuts to get out of a stressful situation (i.e. lie, cheat, steal, sexual favors, make excuses or blame others).DeliveranceDon’t fall prey to the temptations…pray for strength, self-control, guidance, peace and courage to press on.

“Though I have fallen, I will rise.  Though I sit in darkness,

The Lord will be my light. ~ Micah 7:8

Release Words of Faith

releasing birdsRelease words today of love, faith, courage, optimism, healing, faith, forgiveness, enthusiasm, cooperation, joy, peace, truth and gratitude.

Let your words of success take flight.

Shout words of victory and power to encourage yourself.

Fill your atmosphere with words of strength, determination and hope.

God’s Word in Proverbs 18:21 tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue.   Words are carriers of meaning, emotion, faith, fear and energy.

A repetitive teaching from my parents still echoes in my mind… “It’s not WHAT you say, but HOW you say it.”   And I remember, “Think twice before you speak.   If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”

And I heard as a child, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”  Now that statement is not true.  Words do carry the potential to hurt, linger, humiliate, misdirect, anger, sadden or crush one’s spirit.

Remember words can heal or hurt…bless or stress…create or destroy…attract or repel…motivate or discourage…decrease or increase your opportunities … demean or develop a healthy self-image.  As parents we are not perfect.   We often carry our wounds from words and then unknowingly pass them onto our children.   Once we forgive, heal and become aware of the impact of words, then we can break the generation cycle of low self-esteem and crushed spirits.

“The game of life is a game of boomerangs.  Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy. ” by Florence Scovel Shinn “Your Word is Your Wand.”

Think twice before you release words of anger, jealousy, lies, gossip, criticism, fear, vulgarity,  lack, excuses or defeat.   Different words evoke different feelings.

Send out your words like arrows with great intention, power and focus.

Don’t underestimate the power of words to make or break you financially.  Your words are boomerangs.   If you constantly speak only about lack, you will experience more little and lack.

Be more and more aware of God’s abundance, love and infinite provision; you can never really feel a state of lack and stress if you remember the truth … “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalms 23:1)

What words are you speaking and releasing today?

What words have taken flight and will return because of the law of cause and effect?  You possess what you confess.   If you believe the Word of God, speak and release your words of faith and believe the promises for your provision.  Read Mark 9:23
