Fear is a spirit clenching, manipulating, controlling spirit that wants to distract you from your purpose and promise for your life. It is the most destructive, disabling, intangible thing that can ever grab hold of someone. It is an emotion that results from a perceived threat. The key word is “perceived” because something perceived is only a speculation or a sense, it is not proven real.
Fear is designed to separate you from your confidence, the power that is within you, knowing the authority that you have when you open your mouth and speak, and prevent you from moving forward.
The way to overcome fear is to realize the power of your words. When you speak everything in your brain arrests itself and focuses on what your mouth is saying. Stop that fear in its tracks and speak authority, speak confidence, speak boldness, speak greatness, speak your dreams and desires.
You have vocal authority, your words carry spiritual power to communicate life and make things move, even mountains.
These are a few scriptures from the Bible to show you the essence of the power of God’s words.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart.”
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
“ But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain. Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”
My hope is that you realize that when you renew your mind, you will realize the power of words and more importantly the Word of God. For words to be sharper than any two-edged sword, that means that your mouth is a powerful tool. Don’t allow fear to snatch your power from you. Use your words wisely and creatively to build the life you want for yourself.
