Life gives us plenty of chances to be frustrated, leading us to potentially mess up with our words.
Have you been there?
In fact we all have errored with our words multiple times. Our vulnerability is to give in and become a cussing fool slandering others and our situation. While we think in the moment, our enemy is thinking down the road and would love to get us off track. What we say has direct impact on where we go. This is not a mind trick but the reality of our humanity which is why our words are huge.
Our hearts are revealed through what we say and our hearts reveal what we are thinking. Our words display our attitude and belief about ourselves and others. It reveals our true person and gives the direction we are going. For example, if we are saying what we can’t do, what we won’t do, how bad life is, and how things will not work out, what do we think will happen? When we face our reality, and declare that our God is greater than our troubles, our words take a different direction. We begin to say “I can do all things”, “This will work out”, “My life has great potential”, “The best is ahead and God is leading me into what is best”.
This feeds hope and when we have hope our outlook is better, our purpose is seen and our promise reached. When our hope is strong we can resist being a cussing fool. When our hope is low, it’s easier to cave in and go down a dangerous path.
Life wants us in chaos and our enemy wants us to become a cussing fool, thus we curse things and the people around us. This trick is too successful; therefore, we must resist and triumph over it.
Are you a cussing fool in any area of your life?
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.”Proverbs 18:21
Notice that we choose the consequences of our talking either life or death. This is the difference of speaking with hope or being a cussing fool. It’s our choice daily!
No matter what you are facing today, our God is greater! No matter how life has not happened, it’s not too late, and no matter what is falling apart, He can put it back together! Just don’t drink the Kool-Aid and cuss what He will work out. This is our moment and opportunity for a miracle.
Direct your words to Him! Direct your hope to Him and allow Jesus to be the Prince of Peace in all situations.
I believe in you and may the Lord bless your week! The best is ahead!
