Read Proverbs 18:20-21
According to the verse, your words have an effect on you. They are either life producing or death producing. That means you become what you say. Your words can bring discouragement, defeat, sickness, health, blessings, curses, peace, joy or sadness, you choose.
If I ask, “How are you doing today?” and your answer is, “everything is bad, I’m struggling, I can’t seem to get anything done, I’m confused.”
This is a confession you are making about yourself. The impact on you will be self-pity, or a sense of defeat. That confession just robbed you of the motivation to keep fighting.
Father I thank you for giving me understanding about words
Now I know I become what I say
Today I renounce poisonous words
And I choose to speak words that give life in Jesus name
