Fresh Hope – 29th October 2020

Your words create your world. If you are finding yourself sitting in a state of depression and hopelessness, let’s backtrack and look at what is coming out of your mouth. 

Being made in the image of God, we have the ability to create with our words. God built the world from the power of His word. We too have this ability. We too can build our world from our words. In fact, we are CALLED to shape our world with our tongue. 

Equally, our words can carry death. Life and death is in the power of your tongue (Proverbs 18:21). 

There is a lot we could be negative about right now. There is much we could complain about. There is a lot of doom and gloom we could profess. But be careful. Your words are seeds. Be careful what seeds you are sowing, because tomorrow you will reap the harvest of what you have sown today. 

If you sow seeds of life and hope, tomorrow you will walk in it. If you sow seeds of despair, you will walk in it. This is not Karma, or ‘fake it till you make it thinking’. This is a kingdom principal. 

Declare the truth of God! (By the way, if you don’t know what the truth of God is, get reading your Bible)! 

Watch your words in this season.
