While growing up my mother was on drugs, and because of that my siblings and I were the community joke; that led to me constantly fighting to defend my family from embarrassment. Many would say that I had no positive role model but I would object to their opinion. While my mom was bound by the addiction of drugs she still tried to provide for her four children and discipline us when needed. My birthday is on July fourth, although it is popularly known as the fourth of July. Every year my beautiful mother, who is now deceased, would bake many pies and cakes, along with a host of food, invite friends over and say to me, “baby you see everybody around the world is celebrating your birthday.” Those were words of life that I say even to this day although I know otherwise. My mother was celebrating me in her own special way with her own unique words of life.
Your past doesn’t have to dictate your present or future. Words have life and what we constantly release into the atmosphere by faith will come to pass, whether positive or negative. We should never use the trauma of our past as an excuse to justify why we speak negative words over our lives. There’s a passage in the bible (Proverbs 18:20) that states, “Death and life is in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.” in other words whatever we speak will produce fruit that we will eat.
Did you know that it is possible to give birth to something negative if you believe it to be true? Whatever is spoken by faith over time will remain in your life or eventually come to pass. If you constantly tell yourself that you are broke, you are too old to go to school, you don’t have what it takes to accomplish your dreams, etc., your life will began to mimic your words.
Mind renewal is required to speak consistent words of life over your situation. Practice replacing every negative word of death, even when speaking about others, with words of life. Below is a list identifying several areas that can become a stumbling block to your success.
