The Lord has been warning me to be very careful with my tongue, and watch what comes out of my mouth. When someone speaks a negative word over me, they are pronouncing a curse over me. I don’t want that! When I speak a negative word over someone, I am pronouncing a curse over them. I violate the Golden Rule of Jesus when I do to others that which I do not want done to me.
These negative statements or curses become self- fulfilling prophecies because our words do have power to create. We were made in the image of God, whose words do have power to create. If we believe it right to bless God with our mouths, then to be logically consistent believers, we must bless, or speak positive statements, over fellow human beings, especially those the Bible names authorities deserving of honor!
What if a leader is doing something wrong, what then? Instead joining the chorus of name- calling, and in so doing, burden him even more greatly on top of the oppressions of the enemy he may already be under, may I open my mouth in intercession for him as someone who is as beloved by my Father as I am! ♥
