Words that Work

Proverbs 12:18
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
I am trying to be more disciplined about the words that come out of my mouth. I must admit that I can be guilty of saying things that can be damaging to others; "like a sword" the scripture says. Perhaps you have had those moments too when you thought to yourself, "did I really just say that out loud?"
The text today also says that our words can bring healing. Jesus sent His word and healing manifested. At our church we have been talking alot about favor and what God desires to do for us. We've talked about it so much that our people are really believing it and healing has come. Arms, backs, colds, even cancer has been miraculously healed, not by a mighty preacher, not by an emotional service. Our words have brought His presence.
Try an exercise on your own today by watching what you say. How much of your conversation is critical and negative? Replace the piercing words with some positive ones and get ready to see God's supernatural healing come to your family, your business and your life.
