The Mystery of Words

Many times we do not realize how powerful the words coming out of our mouths are. Words carry a lot of invisible packages in their delivery. Paul commented upon this when he said in Hebrews the third chapter, the word of God did not profit them, “because they didn’t receive the promises with faith.” One reason the Israelites had to wander for 40 years in the wilderness was because the promises made to them were not mixed with the packages of faith to those that heard them. The words that Moses spoke were not carrying the packages of faith in them, so the people could unwrap those words and release faith in their hearts to receive the miracles that God was providing for them. Paul said in Hebrews he doesn’t want that to happen to us. I don’t want this to happen to the church either!
The words that you speak must carry packages of life and faith. Or as Jesus described in Matthew 7 (from the Message Bible), “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. But if you just use My words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”
The power of your words is measured by the spirit and life that is in your words. You can say, “I love you,” but be in the spirit of disgust or anger. Although your words speak love, the spirit behind them is death.
The center of the accompanying package attached to each word you speak to someone is generated by the thoughts and intents of your heart. Remember that Paul said the Word of God is sharp, and is a “discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
The Word of God cleanses your thoughts and intentions. The invisible packages that accompany all of your words to your family, fellow workers, and even your soul mate can be communications filled with love, joy, peace, and good intentions. This is the mystery of our words in the power of communication. It is a power you use daily. Believe me, we should treat it as our most valuable gift.
Sent in love,
