You’ll find that the words you speak and the
way you act is a reflection
of what you really believe—even if your beliefs are not based on truth.
There is a strong correlation between the state of your life and the words you
speak. Most people do not think before they speak because they do not understand
the importance of their words. However, our words are living things. They are
creative. And whether the results are wonderful or destructive, we usually get
what we say.
But more importantly, our words reveal the condition of our hearts
and the beliefs we hold. A good person produces good from the good treasure
of his heart, and
an evil person produces evil from an evil treasure, because the mouth speaks
from the overflow of the heart. (Luke 6:45 NIV)
The good news is that we can intentionally change what we believe if we want to. We can choose and embrace the life we desire.
We can establish healthy boundaries, choose to be happy
and healthy, build positive relationships, create the family environment
for, and erect discipline in our children by deliberately planting
seeds of the things we desire instead of bemoaning the current condition
of our circumstances. This takes faith, time, and determination, but
then passivity and negativity have never worked to anyone’s advantage.
We are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds
(Romans 12:2). The Bible also says we are to be aware of the thoughts
we think and
to make them obey what our Creator says in His word about us and
our circumstances. (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
So instead of simply saying
whatever comes into your mind, think about it. Do those words align
with the goals you have for yourself and your
family? If not, then don’t speak those words. Discover
why you believe the way you do in the first place.
Decide what you want your
life to look like and construct a plan to bring that about. Meditate,
visualize, and declaratively pray what
you want into your life. Speak only those words which will bring
about the goals you want to see reproduced in your life or in the lives

of your life today. You
