The Power of the Spoken Word


"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." - Proverbs 18:21



From Tourette's to Success: Josh Hinds

Psychologists have stressed that it is usually our childhood experiences early in life that create the biggest impact on us as adults. This point makes perfect sense as we humans are most impressionable during our childhood years.

Though it may hurt, truth is it is the words of the significant people in our little lives that usually wield the greatest power and have the most far-reaching consequences on us as we live out our lives through adulthood.

"Stick and stone may hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me" may be a nice rhyme but doesn't really hold true.

Josh Hinds was eight years old when he was diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome ....

Power of the Spoken Word

The Father's Blessing: Bill Glass

Have you heard of "the power of the blessing"?

I used to not think that there was any significance behind a parent "blessing" his child. "God bless you" has become so used so frequently that is has become a casual remark to end a conversation or to acknowledge your overpowering sneeze. It could be the expected regular last words written on a letter or card you receive from family and friends. Overused, has it also become overlooked?

What does it mean when one really wishes for God to bless you? What really happens when one speaks a word of blessing into your life? Could there be some kind of power behind such a common byline?

Bill Glass, the former NFL pro considered be to one of the best during his day, said that the biggest problem that our societies face today could be the lack of a father's blessing.

Blessing a Child: Shon Stewart

Shon Stewart was born prematurely with Cerebral Palsy at 2 pounds, 12 ounces. But Shon is what he is right now--a musician with a ministry that touches lives, because of the loving words spoken into his life by his mom and dad.

Shon sings of the words of the love and the hope and faith he received as a little boy, words that have rung true to what Shon has become today. The words that he remembers as a child have turned out to be a prophetic declaration over his life:

"I remember Mom and Dad, they'd say to me, 'You're the apple of my eyes.  And you will soar on eagle's wings.'"

The Blessing Manifesto

A Manifesto, simply put, is a public Declaration. The word comes from the Latin root word manifestum, meaning "clear" or "conspicuous". A manifesto is a public document, making a clear announcement to all about a particular set of intentions or life-stance. When a manifesto is made, there are no shades of trepidation, wavering or uncertainty.

The Blessing Manifesto is your declaration of God's special favor on your life. It is composed of 20 statements of faith proclaimed with resolve and boldness. The Blessing Manifesto is not pulled out from out of the mist nowhere. It is founded on the rock of God's promises so you can never go wrong. They address the fundamental elements of:

- Where did I come from
- Who am I
- What do I have
- What am I capable of doing
- How I should live my life

A Blessing is not a Blessing until it is declared, spoken!

Speak these words of blessing over yourself and your situation. Declare them over your children as well that they may themselves learn how to decree God's blessing over their own life and their future.

May this become our lifelong Blessing Manifesto and experience for ourselves God's special favor ...

Majority wins! But does it?

Power Quotes on the Power of the Tongue

"From the moment a child begins to speak, he is taught to respect the word; he is taught how to use the word and how not to use it. The word is all-powerful, because it can build a man up, but it can also tear him down. That's how powerful it is. So a child is taught to use words tenderly and never against anyone; a child is told never to take anyone's name or reputation in vain." - Henry Old Coyote (20th century), U.S. educator and member of the Crow Tribe.

"Kind words can warm for three winters, while harsh words can chill even in the heat of summer." - Chinese proverb

“Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them for a lifetime.” - Dale Carnegie

"But what does it say? 'The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,' that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." - Romans 10:8-10
