I read something the other day that struct my attention. “Your words and thoughts are containers that carry your future.” “The power of your words are very important,” my mother used to say to me. In truth, your words will reach the finished product long before you do. So, keeping a perpetual guard over your words and thoughts will aid you as you travel the road of life, and stream toward God’s purpose.
Jesus reminded us in the book of Matthew chapter 12 in verse 34: “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” In the Twentieth Century New Testament it says, “What fills the heart, will rise to the lips.” That is why it is so important to think things and speak things that will move you in the direction of a splendid outcome.
Words can be like soft snowflakes, that travel down and melt and yet stain the earth; or words can be the equivalent of a sledge hammer that breaks rocks or transforms the pavement.
In The book of beginnings, God created the Heavens and the Earth by speaking and it was so. He then gave man dominion over the fish of the sea and the fowl of the air, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. In another translation it says, “using its vast resources in the service of God and man.” What a powerful declaration! You and I can use the resources that God has blessed us with to serve and help others. The worlds were framed by the word of God and your words will impact your world, just as God’s did.
So remember, your thoughts and words will help shape the world that you live in and they will create for you a “Garden of Eden”, or a lonely garden with no impact at all. The Law of Correspondence says: “Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. There is a direct correspondence between the way you think and feel on the inside and the way you act and experience on the outside.” “Your relationships, health, wealth, and position are mirror images of your inner world.” At the end of the day, I want God’s best for my life. Because true peace of thought and mind comes through knowing the Prince of Peace!
So the best bet, is to Keep standing on the Rock!
