Wednesdays are for Women( to encourage and uplift)
THE POWER OF WORDS
You can tell where people are from by how they talk, some people have an accent while some people may be difficult to understand them... but it dont matter as long as our words are uplifting and encouraging.
We’re a royal priesthood. I want the accent of heaven thick on my speech! Faith pleases God. Complaining deeply pains Him. I want an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE. When we've got a spirit of complaining, we'll complain even when God moves!
Example: we need a new house. God gives you a new house. Now...we got to clean it!
THE SPIRIT OF THE WORLD IS UNGRATEFULNESS
Nearly every day we hear someone say, "________ sucks!" This thinking leads to places we don't want to go. At any given time, I am one minute away from depression."
GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS
What is going on in our heart will come out when we open the spout.
gives the enemy a "sphere” (a place, a license) of influence in our lives. It will affect us emotionally.
is the constant atmosphere of His people. Take off the spirit of heaviness and replace with a garment of praise! Shake off complaining. It doesn't fit anymore.
You can speak words that take the life right out of someone OR speak words that put darkness to flight! Ephesians 3:21
EN-COURAGE: put courage into someone
DIS-COURAGE: take courage out of someone
God is concerned about the way we talk TO and ABOUT one another, it's a major stronghold the words that come out of your mouth will defile you!
OUR WORDS ARE LIKE SPARKS THAT CAN SET A WHOLE FOREST ON FIRE. Don’t pollute other people with your mouth! (Slander, tale-bearing, evil speaking, gossip).
Psalm. 39:1 “I will watch my ways & keep my tongue from sin. i will put a muzzle on my mouth."
Psalm. 141:3 “set a guard over my mouth, o Lord & keep watch over the doors of my lips."
Ecclesiastes. 5:2,3 "do not be quick with your mouth." "Let my words be few."
Words can set all kinds of things into motion, when you slander someone, you "lock" them in....DOOM them, the things we talk about most.....we magnify, the things we talk about least.....we minimize! When Jesus is magnified, our problems are minimized!
