The Power of Words Over Your Children

The Power of Words Over Your Children
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Words have power! The power of words can be readily seen in the story of creation, and in our lives too. Let’s look at a brief story of Amaka. Amaka scanned the sea of faces about her as she made her way to the assembly ground. It was her first day at the new school. She put on her best smile as the students passed her, hoping for a familiar face.

“Lord, let me find just one person that I know,” she prayed.

Suddenly someone in a hurry rushed past her and she fell to the ground. She looked at her bleeding knees and felt an ache around her ankle. How was she going to use the power of words?

“This was going to be hard,” she told herself as she got up.

“I hate this school!” she blurted out. “Why did mom even pick it for me?”

The bible makes us understand the immense power of our words. The power of words is real; see what the Scriptures say –

Prov. 13:2 “Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys his life.” (GNB)

This verse cautions us to watch what we say as our words are so powerful to create what we say. Our words can make or break us. What we say is what we see and become. The words you speak have an impact on your life.

The more you keep complaining about a situation, the more it worsens; that’s the power of words. Rather, choose to say positive words about it. You don’t deny that there is a problem, but you choose to look at it through positive lenses.

Use words that show you believe the situation will get better and won’t last forever. You have to keep believing that and let your actions show you believe. Learn to use the power of words to your advantage.

Amaka could have said “I am grateful that my parents are giving me an education. I will meet and make nice, God-fearing friends here. Things will work out well for me.”

This way, she’s is not focusing on what she doesn’t like about the school but rather, choosing to believe that she won’t find it rough there.

Finally, she could have just prayed about it to God. Prayer, also, is how you can exercise the power of words.

So, when next you feel like complaining about a situation or someone, remember to choose your words wisely.

God bless and keep your words safe. Amen

Prayer:
Lord God, thank you for your grace that helps me speak wisely. I will continually speak positive, pleasant, and life-giving words as from today. In Jesus name. Amen.

Action plan:
What areas have you been speaking negatively about? Write as many as you can remember or know. Start to speak positively about them.
