We use many words every day. Have you noticed the words you speak about yourself? When we think negative thoughts about ourselves, they translate into negative words; negative words tear us down and hinder our potential.
Have you believed these lies?
- I can’t do anything right
- I won’t get that promotion, others are more qualified
- I will never get ahead, I am limited in education, talent and ability
- I always seem to miss opportunities
Do you not know your words have power? When you speak negative words over yourself, you not only limit your possibilities, but you limit how God can work in your life. When you believe lies about yourself, you are counter to what God says about you. “Whoever believes in Christ is not condemned” John 3:18 (NIV) If God does not condemn you, why condemn yourself?
Proverbs 18:21 (MSG) – Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
