Do you remember the not so nice names you were called at school? Or a word or a phrase that someone spoke over you leaving an indelible scar on your heart? It’s true. The words we say leave a mark. Whether it’s in our own belief system or in someone else’s treasury, our words have impact. What we declare over our lives and others, in fact, show the deeper parts of our heart. Flip it over and see some of the words you adopt in your day to day. Are they positive or negative? It’s easy to get caught up in busy moments and negate the power of the words we sow into. But, ultimately we declare what we believe.
Luke 6:45 says, “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.”
His Word has a greater impact. An eternal one. How blessed are we that we can have access to use His resource to build our foundation wisely?! The Bible is filled with declarations which He has intended us to live wholly by, and don’t forget… live life to the full! When we change the way we think by speaking positive statements from the Living Word over our own lives, we live from a place of Godly overflow into the world around us.
Here are some words you can declare in your own walk:
I have the grace I need for today. God’s power works best in my weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9
As I delight myself in the LORD, and He will give the desires of my heart. Psalms 37:4
Through faith nothing is impossible. Matthew 17:20
My family will be saved & they will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
God’s favour covers me and protects me like a shield. Psalm 5:12

I will flourish because I am planted in the house of God. Psalm 92:13
I will not worry or be anxious about anything but as I keep my trust in God He will fill me with peace. Philippians 4:6-7
We have the privilege and the power to speak into the lives around us, so here’s the challenge church, what are the words you will gravitate towards? Speak life. Speak love.
